Ipoh Road Yong Tow Foo

Lunch yesterday at Ipoh Road Yong Tow Foo gave me the chance to try Paper Chicken – I know have tried most types of chicken in Malaysia with Beggar’s Chicken, Chicken Rice, Steamed Salted Chicken and Satay Chicken.

The Paper Chicken was very strong in flavour with ginger and hoisin sauce. Not as tender as Beggar’s Chicken but still very flavoursome. Paper-wrapped chicken is a popular Cantonese dish. The secret of this popular dish lies in the marinade. Once the wrapped chicken pieces are deep-fried, the marinade caramelizes onto the chicken and other ingredients, joining them together.

We arrived at Ipoh Road Yong Tow Foo around 12:30pm and it was very busy. It pays to get there early as it only gets busier throughout the day. The atmosphere is everything you want to experience as a foreigner with a simple menu, good food and great service but all with the fuss over you that only the Malaysian Chinese can do.

Although we went to Ipoh Road Yong Tow Foo for the Paper Chicken they had a great stall for Popiah as well as local pastries. We were without Emily who was at a Soccer Tournament (they got a bronze medal for third). So with just me, Kerrie and Molly we could order more adventurous.

Ipoh Road Yong Tow Foo can be a little hard to find as wedged between Jalan Segambut and Jalan Kuching but it is well worth the hunt…
