Best Yong Tau Foo in Ipoh

Written by Updated ago

A Hakka dish (originating from the Chinese) that was made popular back in the ancient history of Malaysia. Yong tau foo is literally translated as stuffed bean curd. More often than not, it is prepared with homemade fish paste, and is served alongside other vegetables, stuffed into assorted variations, presented in a bowl of clear broth. However, in Ipoh the deep fried versions are the favourable ones, and lucky you, the best yong tau foo in Ipoh got you covered with both the piping hot bouncy fish paste fillings fresh from the wok and even the soupy versions.

    Restoran Choong Kee Pokok Besar, otherwise known as “Dai Shu Geok” (Big Tree Foot) is the ever famous scrumptious Yong Tau Foo stall in Pasir Pinji. Apparently, it has shifted to a food court next to it, whereas another Yong Tau Foo stall has taken over its previous location and conveys the same Yong Tau Foo business too. In addition to that, a bowl of asam laksa or curry mee will be a great accompaniment to go with a plateful of homemade deep fried fish paste, stuffed with different variations.

    Tips

    It gets crowded during lunch time. Very limited parking space.

    Things to expect

    Reasonable prices.

    Kedai Makanan Kum Kee is a local hidden gem placed in a housing estate area. It is a place that is famed for “Dai Sai Keok”- a combination of braised pig trotter and chicken feet. Some people may loathed the inclination of eating an almost meatless part of a chicken or pork, but fret not, you can always replace it with the Yong Tau Foo here. Available in deep fried and soup versions, the irregularity of the fish paste screams homemade and is stuffed with all sorts of variations.
