Puchong Yong Tau Fu

I am only acquainted with the newer parts of Puchong, up till Bandar Puteri so when a friend directed me to Puchong’s “Old Town” for freshly made Yong Tau Fu (YTF from hereon), it felt like a mini adventure. Lol. This corner YTF place was opposite Puchong Secondary School and SRJK Han Ming at Bt.14 and we arrived during lunch, which meant traffic was hell. Maneuvering between frustrated mums and school buses, I have almost given up on finding parking when I spotted a slot. Ah, lucky we M’sians know how to put our creative parking skills to good use. Rofl.

From lack of parking to lack of seats, we had to wait for a while before we managed to grab a table. Then, it was off to make our picks. The cut vegetable chunks and tofu products are waiting to be picked by the customers before being stuffed with fish paste and cooked.

As we were waiting, we started with some chee cheong fun first. They have Paper wrapped Chicken too but we weren’t too keen on them. The rice rolls were okay lah, with the hae ko sauce. We were also served dipping sauce which was a concoction of chilli paste and some tau cheong tasting paste. It was good though, and went esp. well with the deep fried stuff.

Stuffed fresh tofu, tofu puffs, chillies, lady fingers etc in the soup with “sayur cangkuk manis”. Most of the stuffing were very generous and some had fallen out during the cooking process and it was quite a delight eating the fish paste by itself. Bouncy and fresh, it tasted delicious! And that does explain the returning crowd. The use of the leafy vegetable normally used in Pan Mee dishes did add a certain sweet flavour to the soup, which

Fried to a light golden hue, all the deep fried YTF were crisp and piping hot. The fu zhook or beancurd sheets were so crisp it’s a must have. I loved the stuffed brinjals and the dumplings has very generous fillings.

All YTF items are RM1 each, while chicken pieces were at RM3 each. They also had curry noodles & Pan Mee at RM3.50 to RM4. The YTF is not exactly cheap, but justified by the big chunks and generous stuffing. There’s some waiting time averaging 15 to 20 mins involved as the workers have to stuff the pieces before cooking and serving. But for such fresh, yummy goodness, it’s worth waiting for. I’m not sure how it compares the the famous Ampang YTF but Puchong is definitely nearer to where I’m staying so the likelihood of me coming back when I have a craving is higher. πŸ˜› My only gripe is probably the heat. The whirring fans don’t seem to help when there’s so much frying going on!

    Sorry, i beg to be different. I finally taste it for the first time after staying in Puchong for years. But, it is going to be my LAST. Don’t taste good; my sui kow was half-cooked. The fried fu pei was not even fried properly, and the whole piece just curled up. Not to my pleasing eyes. Go to BK5 restaurant and taste the Yong Tau Foo. See how they freid the fu chok and brinjal to perfection. And it’s only 70 sen.
