Was supposingly going for dinner at one the Japanese restaurant in Taipan last month when the makan gang detour to the shop opposite it…. What the heck!
When mention about the name, I know it’s not a preferred place to go for yong tau foo but anyway, the majority wins. *tsk tsk*
We went for their set meal for 6 person which include:
Mixed yong tau foo. Stuffed chillies, fish balls, stuffed okra, aubergines, stuffed tauhu pok, white beancurd and stuffed beancurd sheets. One thing that I can’t familiarize myself with yong tau foo here was the sauce that being poured over them. I still love my deep fried yong tau foo to be served dry.
Assam fish which are just mediocre. Feel that the fish were not fresh.
Deep fried fish paste wrapped in wan ton skin. Pretty ok with this but just some normal stuff, nothing special to rave about.
Some blanched iceberg lettuce with garlic oil and fried shallots to balance our meal.
We also had the soupy version of sui kow which is quite good, with minced meat, fish paste, and chopped sengkuang.
And finally, some pandan chicken to complete the meal. Although I doubt that I tasted any pandan aroma from the chicken, the chicken itself are flavourful with sufficient marinade but a tad too oily.
I personally feel that this is just another place to have a normal, decent meal with friends or family. If can, just avoid the assam fish.
Ampang Yong Tau Foo has branches in Ampang and PJ as well. This outlet is located in Taipan, USJ, opposite 7-Eleven.
