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.
