Fried snacks and Tau Foo Fa, SS2

A short post today..some snacks that we take after lunch if we're at SS2 (other that the giant curry puff at SS2)..
Noticed this (van) stall parked right in front of Pelita Nasi Kandar?
Though they sell lots of fried snacks, I'll eat only one type..
The fried 'neen gou' with yam and sweet potato..
One bite and you'll get oozing, stickin neen gou sandwich between the soft, powdery texture of yam and sweet potato. This is tasty, though not the best I've had as the fried dough was a tad too hard. Some said they added melted plastic to get that crunchy 'kruk kruk' texture..hmmm, hear say...what do you think? I thought it's nonsense :p
WF said there's a really smooth tau foo fa infront of the convenience store (cant recall the name). Same row as KFC..
Seen him before?
Anyways, I was unimpressed. The Tau Foo Fa was not smooth and the soy had the 'burnt' taste. WF said it was never like that. Hmmm, just my luck?

joe: bad luck :(

nic: wah, kat mana tu? the nicest i had was in PG, in one of those tamans..

cumi&ciki: it's always shiok to eat fried neen gou when it's hot and melting :)

mimid3vils: gasp! :p

teckiee: for me personally la..a smooth TFF glides down the throat so silkily that even my tongue cant stop/ block it. and each spoonful should not have the slightly harden sides (means it was left untouched for too long), the exterior should be as smooth as the interior. also, it should almost (just almost) disintergrate in one's mouth's temperature (you wont get to 'bite' into it)..hehehe..yes, i love my tau foo fa..

We can never get this name right ( or wrong ) coz we never look at what we are really eating ( went in with the brew in the dark , beside Mcdonalds )
