RESTORAN FOONG FOONG (YONG TAU FOO)


Ha! My first Malaysian food blog! And I have to dedicate this to the legendary yong tau foo place at Restoran Foong Foong located at Ampang, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Reason is, I had this 10 years ago… and I had it recently. It’s still so good… price has changed of course but it’s still very very very tasty…

Took a cab there from the hotel and am so glad for the new highway which heads directly to Ampang. There are like 3-4 restaurants there claiming to be the original yong tau foo… but I remember this one very well and also, the crowd alone shows! 😛

The highway to heavenly food...
There it is! Look at the crowd!
the ever busy kitchen
The ordering counter... which was new to me... haha... so before you reach there, ask around how many pieces you guys can eat first for the assorted yong tau foo, fried dumplings and soup dumplings! Saves time and you get to eat faster!
Price list... RM$0.80 per piece... about S$0.35 per piece. Not at all cheap actually but wit till you see how big a piece is below...
Putting this pic now makes me crave for this... why am I doing this to myself?!?!!
Look at the size and the amount of fish in it
Huge piece of tau foo... you can taste the soy bean fragrance with every bite! Whhyyyyyy am I doing this to myself!!!!
Fish ball in an egg shape. Cantonese call this 'Yu Dan' which means Fish Egg. So this is truly Fish Egg!!!
check out the cross section of the fish balls... or eggs... I can still remember the taste... very nice and soft with very fresh fish taste... Omg... whhhyyyyy....
Fried dumplings - Crispy and tasty...
Dumpling Soup - Nice broth!

Rating: 5/5. If I can give a 6, I would!

Taste: I can’t explain this heavenly taste… you have to go there and try it yourself! Singapore’s ‘ampang’ yong tau foo stalls all have to stand aside!

Portion: Above average! Very big pieces!

Price: 50pcs without rice with drinks about RM$44. Good for 2-3 people. Less than SGD$20. I suspect if I go with any buddy of mine, we might conquer 100pcs. (S$1 = RM$2.3)

RTE: Whenever I’m in KL I definitely would!

Location: Just tell the cab driver Ampang Yong Tau Foo Restoran Foong Foong. All cab drivers know it. Becareful some might take you for a ride to increase the fares. Should be about RM$20-$25 to reach there from town.
