Restoran Tuck Cheong, Pudu, KL

Since I've started with old schools, I might as well continue with another old school restaurant located at dear old Pudu...
A place that I've just discovered, although Tuck Cheong has been around this part of town for over 4 decades. Was there recently early in the morning with my boss, we decided to have dim sum at Tuck Cheong. Ordering was by walking to the steamer and choosing the dim sums..

Some siew mai Oh there's 3 actually. My boss was hungry and ate one before I managed to take a picture of it..hehe. This siew mai had more fish than pork. Which I find mediocre only.

Lor mai kai... Looks moist and soft..which it was. But I find the marination lacking. Luckily it was served piping hot, it was still nice to eat. I wanted to try the fish paste cheong fun (rice sheet).. The rice sheet was thick and bland, rather sticky too. You can skip this dish.
My compulsory order, the steam pork ribs... Tuck Cheong does this beautifully. Thumbs up to the tender ribs and excellent rich bean sauce. Absolutely lovely.
Some fried fish balls.. A more compact fishball full of flavour and lots of chopped spring onions and chillies. Tasty.
The yong tou foo looks good, so we ordered a plate too..The YTF was juicy and soaked up all the sauces. The fish paste was springy and goes well as a filling. Tastes as good as it looks :)
Boss wanted sang yuk pao (steam pork buns)
We waited quite a while as it's freshly steamed..Have it hot, the pao was filled with pork and chopped sar kok (turnip). The filling was very tasty, with some sauce flowing from the pao, but I find the skin too thick and too compact. I like my paos fluffy.
Restoran Tuck Cheong is located at end of Jalan Kancil, Pudu, KL. Facing a very rundown, old Kompleks Ruby. Few roads away from Thong Kee egg tarts.
