Chee Cheong Fun & Yong Tau Foo @ Taman Cahaya, KL



Recently we visited one of our 4WD friends who had ventured into the restaurant business. He has always been in the food business hence we call him the Chicken King but this is his first time opening a place that serves food i.e. chee cheong fun and yong tau foo. We sampled his food - the chee cheong fun which came with curry sauce they make themselves. I must admit I don't usually take my chee cheong fun with curry sauce and it was yummy.


He served us a huge plate of yong tau foo drizzled with curry sauce. For the uninitiated, yong tau foo is basically vegetables or bean curd stuffed with fish paste. It is then fried or deep fried and usually served wih a brown sauce called "thim cheong" in Cantonese. It was my first time eating my yong tau foo with curry sauce and our friend told us that it's very common in Cheras. We also sampled some yong tau foo with his own version of thim cheong - a mixture of soya bean paste, garlic, shallots, soya sauce and sesame oil that is fried together. Amazingly we polished two big plates of yong tau foo as it was yummy.

He kept asking us for feedback since his restaurant is just starting out hence we sat down and suggested he could try rolling out various dishes as specials to test his market. One suggestion was to introduce yam cake since he could use his thim cheong to serve it with. Hope everything works out for him. I have the address of the place but I'm actually lost about getting there though so if you live around the area, you can call him for directions. I will be posting the full address later as I left the details somewhere else.

Is this pandan indah ampang same as pandan indah cheras?? IpohGal aka Citygal is blur..question marks over my head..

poor mamabok - I understand as I spent 3 years yearning for all this food last time in dreary England.

soleila - yes, very droolworthy even though I'm biased.

Cath - my first time eating this way and it's nice and light.

kampungboycitygal - I'm also confused. I've changed it to Taman Cahaya to avoid the confusion as I can't remember where we turned off i.e Pandan Jaya or Pandan Indah on the MRR2 - I think it's Pandan Jaya.

I think Pandan area has two sides -Ampang and Cheras as the local councils share jurisdiction over the place.

Ai ya,,, this is one food I almost forgoten man..
It's my favourite Chee Cheung Fun dish..
over here, eat this food only in Hong Kong style,The Chee Cheung Fun is either wrapping with Long chinese donuts (油炸鬼) and dip in Peanut and Hoisin sauce, or plain eat with peanut and hoisin sauce, or wrap with shrimp, meat.....
Nothing compare with this style man...
I am flying home now!...
So sad, can't fly home yet.....
The yong tau foo too is delicious looking, can you ask your friend to hire me as his assitance??

blogie-talkie - I like the HK style also. My fav is char leong and the fried cheong fun with peanut sauce. So sorry to hear you are homesick - quick book air ticket home once in a while to enjoy the local food.

Hi, It's actually called "Pandan Cahaya". Yeah, it's on the border of Cheras and Ampang. The post code is a Cheras post code though.

It's on the east side of MRR2. Pandan Jaya is right across, on the west side.
