Yong Tou Foo

After our rather lavish French Fine Dinning anniversary dinner early in the week it was refreshing to go back to local with a RM 20 (US$6) lunch of Yong Tau Foo at Restoran Yong Tou Foo Chan Chan in Bandar Manjalara, Kepong.

“Yong Tau Foo” literally translates to “stuffed bean curd” and is essentially a clear consommé soup containing a varied selection of food items most of which are stuffed with a meat paste of fish and pork.

We ordered a few pieces, namely the eggplant (Brinjal), chilli, white Tau Fu, dumpling and Fu Chuk. Fu Chuk is deep fried bean curd and we have a stuffed version of that.  I also especially love the chilli as it is a large red stuffed chilli – not too hot but rich in flavour. Also the brown sauce at Chan Chan was very tasty.

I don’t think I have mentioned it before but given the heat, a common way to drink tea in Malaysia is iced. Generally you are given a pot of hot tea and a bucket of ice to enjoy.

A great Malaysian lunch – simple but flavoursome. The staff was very friendly and helped us understand what to order and how to eat.
