Chan Chan Yong Tau Foo, Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

>> Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Overall comment: Decent yong tau foo (YTF) - at least the ingredients are fresh, portion is quite generous for the price paid, & the overall dining experience was acceptable.
Halal: No

I was in Kepong with some colleagues after work & we decided to have some YTF for dinner. I've read some mixed reviews about this place, but for a 1st timer, I didn't have a horrible experience that will make me boycott this restaurant forever :P In fact, because of the price & portion served, I may even come back again! I'm not a YTF "specialist", so generally, if the taste of the YTF is not weird, overly oily or too salty/bland & the texture isn't too tough nor mushy, I'll not have much to complain.

That very night itself, I was practically stuffed to the brim! I somewhat over-ordered without realizing since my colleague was just going along the list & we just raised our hands for whichever item that we want to order! Hahaha...in total, I think I had EIGHT large pieces of YTF + small bowl of rice + some assam fish + some veggie. *burp* It's a worth-eating meal...

Variety of YTF Available

Non-YTF Dishes
Looking at other blogs, the vinegar pork leg looks kinda good, but we didn't order that - thankfully! We were struggling to finish our YTF pieces as it seems like we've over-ordered or perhaps under-estimated that the portion served is something alike the Ipoh Road's YTF (quite small).

The restaurant at night

The strange-looking sauces
The sweet brown sauce ("cheong") & the chilli sauce looked REALLY strange! It didn't taste great with the YTF too. I've no idea why they can't just provide the "common" sweet brown sauce & chilli sauce used at most YTF places. I wouldn't mind something common in place of these strange sauces...hahaha....

Assorted Deep-Fried Yong Tau Foo (RM1.10/piece)
 It was like a mount of YTF! We thought we didn't order that much, but yikes, some pieces are actually just half & we had to eat 2 of the YTF pieces to consider it as ONE YTF piece! Fuh! Big pieces! The nicer items are the deep-fried dumpling/"sui gao" & the deep-fried flat beancurd sheet/"fu chook". The rest aren't fantastic. The YTF in SS3 is still the champion for their YTF brinjal! :D

My "sui gao" - yums :)

Gigantic White Tau Foo pieces (RM1.10/piece)
After having everything else, this is like eating rice! Don't order rice if you order more than 5 pieces of YTF :S I've learned my lesson... 

Assorted Soup Yong Tau Foo (RM1.10/piece)
The lady's fingers are quite large man...same goes the "sui gao". The soup is also quite tasty/sweet since they used the kind of vegetables in pan mee soup :)

Assam Kampung Fish (RM6.00/fish)
This is quite tasty! Spicy + sour + sweet + salty = yums! The fish was also fresh & nicely cooked to perfection; it's not over-cooked! 

 Blanched "Choy Sum"
No complaints :) At least it's not old & yellowish...hohoho...

The restaurant is located amidst the busy commercial square at Bandar Menjalara. There are SO many food options that one could be spoilt for choice! I wouldn't mind coming back here 'til I find another better place in Kepong for YTF. If there are any YTF with minced pork filling, woots, I will not want to miss out trying it! Ah, as I write this, I crave for the dim sum brinjal with minced pork filling at Kuantan's Seng Kong...*dreams*
