When it comes to Yong Tau Fu, I tend to stick to tried and tested spots because of consistency, like the one from Puchong and Kepong. Two different kinds of yong tau fu and both, I enjoy. I came across this yong tau fu spot in Kepong a couple of weeks ago when I was in the vicinity for a client project – according to my colleague, the food is good.
So we parked our car and gave it a shot since it was past lunch hour and I was feeling hungry. I don’t know the Chinese name for this place so I’m going to call it big tree yong tau fu (大树下古早味家乡酿豆腐), since it is located under a large tree.
Priced at RM1.50 per piece, the yong tau fu is cooked to order but from what I could see, they aren’t stuffed on the spot like most legit yong tau fu places do. The key to a good yong tau fu I feel, lies in the fish paste mixture. Some places use purely minced fish while some use a combination of fish, dried cuttlefish and pork.
Chee cheong fun is also available though it’s nothing spectacular; just a decent accompaniment to the yong tau fu. Personally, I feel the fish paste for the yong tau fu leans towards the saltier side. It also doesn’t have the “bounce” I was hoping for when biting into fish paste.
Food: 5/10 (non-halal)
Verdict: Pretty average in my opinion.
