Yook Woo Hin, Petaling Street, KL

I met Janice when I was accompanying Bollywood Queen to Petaling Street.
It was good to meet Janice, she grew up in Petaling Street, knowing every nook and cranny of it. So, obviously we got her to suggest the place for lunch; we decided to skip some chicken hor fun, roasted pork noodle place before we settled for Yook Woo Hin.
Yook Woo Hin is one of the oldest establishment in Petaling street; have been running their business for decades. Famed for serving old school dim sums (those served in small metal plates), we were not game for it as the afternoon was hot and stuffy.
Janice ordered Ngau Hor, Sin Chow Mai and boxing chicken for us..
First served was the Ngau Hor (stir fried beef slices with flat noodles in egg sauce)....This must be one of the best ngau hor I've tried. The beef slices were tender and very well marinated; giving me pleasure with every chew and bite. The sauce was eggy and smooth, enveloping the flat noodles wonderfully.
The sin chow mai (singapore fried bee hoon) was cooked to the version I like.. Very dry and full of wok hei. Have it with the vinegared sliced chillies, it's delicious (but not as good as ngau hor :p)
I was rather suprised when I saw the boxing chicken..It's fried chicken! I thought it's supposed to be cooked in some sweet sour sauce? No? Before I could voice my protest, we were served with a bowl of sauce..
Sauce for the chicken, it's crunchier if you dip in and eat immediately, the ancient looking waiter told us..
The chicken was very crisp, but light. The meat was tender, and dipping it into the sauce gives another flavour to this dish. Tasty indeed.
I cant recalled how much we paid, but it was reasonable.. Think was about RM30.
Yook Woo Hin is located at 100, Jalan Petaling, 50000 Kuala Lumpur. Opens for breakfast until tea time.

a classique! school holidays and visits to petaling street with grandpa always ended up in restaurants such as this. but the MSG kept us away for as long as we could remember.

hmm, perhaps they have improved. guess it's time for a trip down memory lane :)
