Ipoh Road Yong Tau Foo, KL

Eric was in office recently, we decided to meet for lunch before he moves to his new office..
I didnt wanna think much and asked him for suggestions..
Ipoh Road YTF?
Sure! Why not right?
It was a scorching afternoon and the place is already packed with customers, all busy gobbling down their YTF..
We managed to get parking and seats quite promptly despite the crowd and we ordered..
Fried sui kow and fried foo chook.. both very crunchy, generously filled with fish paste which was rather springy in texture. Dipped in a mixed of chilli and bean sauce, this is one lip smacking YTF!
We also had the usual mix of white tau foo, brinjal, ladies fingers, bittergourd and chilli..All tasted very fresh, huge in portions and served in a thick, saucy broth which goes really well with the YTF. My all time fave when it comes to YTF would always be the stuffed brinjal and Ipoh Road's definitely gets my stamp of approval ;). Also, I like them arranging the YTF prettily before it was serve..
Yes, I'm the weirdo who notices irrelevant things like that..haha
The soup sui kow paled in comparison to it's fried counterpart, the skin was a tad thick. The filling, nonetheless, tasted very fresh..
Pigs that we are, we also ordered paper wrapped chicken. You can skip this. Marination was not very sufficient and the meat was tough! Spare your tummy for other YTFs...have paper wrapped chook at Balakong instead...hehe
What I liked about Ipoh Road's YTF (other than their tasty, huge portions) would be their sauces. Usually, we'll get a slightly diluted chilli and sweet bean sauce. But their version, well, it's thick and tasty. Yumz..Ipoh Road YTF is located at 67, Jalan Segambut, KL. Tel:62526473.

I haven't eaten here for ages ever since they shifted to these premises. I remember that my fav was their silky tofu. Time to revisit this place.
