Yong Tao Foo consists of ground meat and fish paste stuffed into beancurd and vegetables, which is then added to a soup or deep fried. Since it is a Hakka Chinese cuisine, it is commonly found in places where there is a large Hakka Chinese community. One of these places is at the Seri Kembangan New Village, where traditional wooden homes often double as a shop in the front.
Pi brought us here for lunch. The place was surprisingly cool despite the hot weather outside. The kitchen area is on the left, while diners sit on the right. At the entrance, all sorts of yong tau foo that have been fried or boiled are laid out on a counter. You pick the stuff you want in a plate and they’ll serve it to your table.
Stuffed tofu and fishballs. The fishballs were sizable and springy. Good balls. Lol.
Ordered a buttload of fried stuff. There was fried foochok (beancurd) which was thin and crispy with a small sheet of fish meat on the inside. I liked the fried wantans and suigao (long dumplings), but the fried crullers were hard to the bite. The items weren’t very fresh though since they were fried earlier and had been lying around on the display counter for some time. Not bad, but not very good either. But then again, they open in the morning so it might taste better if they’re freshly fried from the wok.
Iced soya bean to wash it down 🙂
