Yong Tau Foo is very dear to the Chinese community and the dish is usually prepared non-halal in every restaurant serving it. In 1988, Home Town Yong Tow Foo is introduced to its customers as the first Chinese Halal restaurant that serves Halal Chinese Hakka Yong Tow Foo. The main concept is to make local delights especially Chinese delicacies edible to the Muslim community. They begin 25 years ago just as a hawker stall and now they are venturing into trading business and supplying the Chinese Halal Hakka food to Malaysian. Fun fact: this restaurant was the first to introduce Yong Tow Foo into Malaysia Halal market and has obtained the Halal Certificate of Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM) since 1996.
Famous among the Malay crowd, this restaurant serves their famous yong tau foo in a very big portion of broth. The tofu offered here is said to be one of the best in town due to its soft and smooth, with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The fish paste is also delicious although some thinks that it can be a little too salty. If you want to go for the recommended dish, try their signature You Tiao or Char Kway Stuffed Yong Tau Foo that will cost you around RM1 each. What makes it special is that the char kway is pan-fried twice. First on its own and the second time with the fish paste which will give you a very nice crunchy texture. However, Home Town Yong Tow Foo does not provide that doughy breaded taste to its dishes. The char kway only serves as a crusty wrapper for the meat inside, but it is still considered as a must-try for its rare fusion of yong tau foo.
