Was in KL for a night and was recommended this place by a friend in KL. Heard this is a regular joint for supper for most party goers in KL… well at least for the locals.

So my friend drove us to the back part of Jalan Alor, which is the famous street for good street food. The little stall is located along the small road just behind Hotel Nova vicinity. Problem is trying to find a parking but we were lucky.

The stall
The owner cooking the noodles
Price list!
The not so appealing noodles... The black stuff on top is the beef... not bad with a little herbal taste. The egg noodles are pretty springy. - RM$6 for the biggest bowl
A bowl of soup that comes with the noodles... I ordered the mixed one with beef parts. Soup is very clear and nice.
We ordered an extra bowl of beef balls. Wholesome and full of flavour. - RM$6 for 10pcs
Great chilli sauce for dipping the beef balls and parts.
Homemade ice cold herbal drink... very nice and refreshing! - RM$1.30

Rating: 4/5

Taste: Acquired. Some people may not like the cowdung-looking lump on top of the noodles and some may not like the herbal taste of that lump of thing. But it was alright for me and this is totally not found in Singapore.

Portion: Above average.

Price: Relatively cheap. Good supper item. Next time I might choose to stay near Jalan Alor to feature all the food there!

RTE: Yes but there are lots to try there still…

Location: Beginning of Tingkat Tong Shin, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Just behind Corona Inn Hotel)




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.
