Cowan Street Ayam Tauge & Koitiao
This is the tauge chicken i would give a shoutout for. Best bean sprout chicken and flat rice noodles. It tastes fabulous and scrumptious! Till now i’m still craving for it. Their flat rice noodles was so smooth and the soup was really da bomb! Tauge chicken was really delectable especially pairing up with the rice noodles.
