After several tries of eating so-called "Ampang Yong Tau Fu" in Klang, I was actually given up on it already. None of those that I tried could be considered acceptable. But somehow, after a trip to a waterfall in Gombak, I was being taken to one of the restaurant in Ampang for their famous Ampang Yong Tau Fu.
Maybe I didnt put much hope on it and I was wondering why so many people actually frequented these few shops, I was surprised at how good the foods is.
This is the place that we went to… Restaurant Foong Foong…
The place was full when we reached there and it is still full when we leave… When a group of people on a table stand to leave, another group would fill in the space…
Our first plate of yong tau fu
Ordering is very easy. Each table is numbered. Just go to the counter and tell the boss what you want and go back to sit. Minutes later, the yong tau fu would be served. You would be amazed how they could be so efficient.
And if you are asking, each piece of yong tau fu would cost you RM0.80. It used to be RM0.70 but due to inflation (my guess), the price has gone up abit.
All in all, we ordered 50 pieces. There are 5 of us, thus, average, each person ate 10 pieces…
So, if you wanna try the yong tau fu in this restaurant, below is the address:
Restoran Foong Foong
621-A, Jalan Besar Ampang,
** Damage: about RM50
** Thanks HX for the treat :)
Something least expected happened today. A colleague brought me to a place that I least expected to find some delicious foods.
The stall is located in a housing area not that faraway from my office.
This home/stall sell some very nice noodles (mee, bihun, yee mee, pan mee and such) but what makes it stood out is the soup base they are using. They dont have the usual “clear-soup” (chicken or meat soup) or curry. Instead, they have the option of spicy soup (麻辣 read “ma la”) and herbal soup for us to choose from.
Herbal Soup Yee Mee
This is what I had there. I would says the soup is really good.
Ma La Soup Pan Mee
This is the famous Ma La Soup Pan Mee. My colleague ordered this. And being the curious food hunter that I am, I tried the soup. It is not as spicy as I thought but still over the limit for me. But then again, it does taste nice… making me thinking of trying it the next time.
Herbal Soup Mee Hun Keh
Another colleague ordered this. Her comment was that the herbal soup is really good.
The best part of this lunch with my colleagues is how the one that brought us here actually ordered two bowl of the noodle (one Ma La and one herbal soup). He ate both and by the time we were on the way back, he could feel his tummy making noise and he just let it be… We had a good laugh about his facial expression.
To tell you the truth, this pork burger does not taste like a real pork burger. The reason why I am writing this is to tell you not to go.
The unreal pork burger
This is how the so called pork burger looks like. My mum reason it out that it is a chinese version of pork burger but I dont buy it at all. And it does not taste good enough. If you want me to give point on the scale of 1 to 10, I would only give it a 2.
Guess you understand how disappointed I am with it.
And if you were wondering, yes, I wont go back to that shop again.
The address for the shop is as below:
Eng Hock Hiong Foodstuff Sdn Bhd
No.16, Jalan Kasawari 5, Taman Eng Ann 41150 Klang,
Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia.
(Opposite 99 Speedmart of Taman Eng Ann)
This shop is a branch os the original Pun Chun Chicken Biscuits & Restaurant, located in Bidor. They are most famous for their Duck Drumstick Herbal Soup and Wan Ton Mee.
After coming here twice and countless of time for the main shop in Bidor, I would says that their standard at both place of top notch quality and taste.
Every time I am there, I would go for their Duck Drumstick Herbal Soup served with tasty mee. It is really awesome when you can bite into the soft duck meat. And the aroma of the herbs used makes it extraordinary.
Beware as this delicacy is very heaty. Thus, make sure to cool yourself down afterward with some cooling "leong cha".
So, if you are interested in trying this delicacy, please visit this shop at the following address:

Hang Sing Seafood Restaurant is one of those place where you least expected to be able to find good foods. But the fact that the place can really offer good foods is really undeniable. The last time I was there is on last Tuesday. I was there for lunch with my two colleagues and as time is not really on our side (we only have 1 hour to get there, order, wait to be serve, eat and come back to office), we only ordered some basic (but definitely delicious) foods.
We ordered two basic foods being offered there: Char Kuey Teow and also Hokkien Mee.
Both dishes here are considered one of the best available in Klang. The way it is being cook is somehow different that the others. Thus, giving it a special taste.
