Kepong Big Tree Yong Tau Fu

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.

Picking a few of my favourite items…

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.

Overall, I find the yong tau fu just average. I’m still not sure why it’s so popular among the Kepong folks but I’d choose to eat the yong tau fu here and here instead.
