Yong Tau Foo and Fried Chicken Wings @ Seong Kee Yong Tow Foo, Petaling Jaya



When it comes to my family, they all seem to know where's the best places to eat whether it's stall or restaurant food. Hence when my mother raved about this place, it's been top on the list of places to try but every time we decide to go out for lunch, it's either too early for this place or we're too far away from it.

We finally struck lucky and managed to make it one day to sample their food. This small stall within the Medan Selera area will only fry or cook your items once you place your order hence one needs to be patient while they prepare the food. It's really worth it since everything is super fresh especially the fried items. There are also other items which you can order that are pre-cooked such as their Hakka Char Yoke which I thought tasted okay and not as nice as the
Lorong Peel place. Besides that, there's curry fish head, assam fish, rendang fish, pork trotters in black vinegar on the menu.



Sampling their yong tau foo, you can distinctively taste that they added more fish versus minced pork and there's no salted fish. A quick chat with the lady who runs the stall indicates that they no longer stuff it with salted fish as it's pricey and not everyone likes the taste. Out of the items ordered, I really liked their brinjal and white tofu. The brinjal was pretty huge and well pan fried while the white tofu was very smooth. Also good was their tofu puffs stuffed with fish and meat paste. Although the items are quite pricey at RM0.90 each, the brinjal and white tofu was definitely worth it as they were huge portions.

My mother had also recommended the deep fried chicken wings. Ordering a minimal order of two to sample, it was super delicious as they lightly coated it with turmeric powder. Freshly fried and super crispy, this was the ultimate deep fried chicken wing for me. It's not cheap though as each wing and drumette costs RM2.50 hence a minimal order will set you back by RM5.

ohhh got to try this. the yong tou foo looks very "ching" just the way i like it. many yong tau foo are too oily.

Is tis the PJ Old Town area food court?

teckiee - I think it's because they put it in quite a lot of soup hence quite "ching" but they still need to pan fry it.

precious pea - yes, old town PJ Medan Selera or food court in English.

da chicken wing looks really good, i like da golden color of it rather than some stalls selling those with really darky colors, not fresh at all....

boo_licious said...

sc - yeah, chicken rice at Kie Kie is really good and cheap too.

babe - true since she has more experience eating at places vs me.

meiyen - the chicken wing is yummy. I prefer it since it's lightly coated vs those who drench it with too much flour.

omigoooodness, the brinjal is such a brilliant hue of purple...usually in yong tau foo they're all shrivelled up and discolored like an old man soaked in a tub too long....looks divine.

boo_licious said...

fbb - the brinjal is definitely the best tasted so far.

Jackson said...

90sen a pieces was a bit too pricey but since they using lots of fish meat rather than minced pork, then worth it! Brinjal and white tofu is alwiz my choices!

boo_licious said...

jackson - yeah, this place is not cheap. Even the chicken wings is super expensive.

Ooooh Yong Tow Foo...I am so sad I am going to miss Foong Foong, I used to go there to eat so often when I was attending college in KL...but this one looks delish. KL Yong Two Foo is definitely better than Penang's.

boo_licious said...

rasa malaysia - yeah, Foong Foong is so popular they're closed for almost the whole month in February. Guess we will have to try other places. Can't even take you here as this place only opens on Sunday.
