Red Bean Tau Fu Fah @ Soya Shop, Ikano Power Centre, Petaling Jaya

There is something so wonderful and comforting about tau fu fah. Smooth and slippery, it slides down one's throat. This smooth as silk tau fu fah was introduced by
WMW and ever since then, I have been hooked. Unlike other places, here they don't use any sek ko fan (plaster of paris) to turn the soy milk into curd but instead it is a citric acid which is much healthier. Although I'm not a fan of red beans usually but this topping of soft red kidney beans when paired with the tau fu fah is addictive. I can't really remember how much I paid for this but it should be definitely higher than the usual RM1 bowls at the soy bean stall. If I am not mistaken it should be about RM2.50 or RM3. A bit pricey but worth every sen I reckon for the pure satisfaction I get from eating this.

Aside from this, they also serve dumplings or tong yuen with various fillings and soy milk which is supposedly also very good. Must give that a try one day. Do read the other reviews which has focused on those items.

sorry, not sure if this is the right place to be contacting you since I can't find any other links in your blog... just a quick question: if you had only 3 days + 2 nights in KL, what/where would you eat? no, this isn't a trick question, i'm just after some recommendations since we're planning a trip to KL at Christmas. only constraint is we can't eat spicy food. your help would be most appreciated. thanks! btw, absolutely love your blog! makes my mouth water just looking at the photos!
