Kedai Makanan Pak Yoon, Salak South Baru

Miss those tai chow flavours you get in the 1970s- 1980s?
Gary brought me to Pak Yoon, which really reminds me of the dishes I had when I was a wee kid, going for tai chow in my hometown. With fond memories of good chinese stir fry dishes ala kampung style, we reached the humble eatery nearing 2 pm.
We were so worried that they have close for lunch, luckily, they were still taking in customers :)
Left the ordering to Gary, since he has been here before..
We got the old school sweet and sour ribs (pai guat wong)
Tender pork ribs, each piece was well marinated and coated with the tangy sauce. The batter was soft and soaked with sauce, unlike the 'newer versions' of pai guat wong which mostly has crunchy batter.
Candy only request was the Bittergourd with salted egg
This was absolutely delicious. The bittergourd was fresh and though after stir frying, it was still crisp and sweet (yes, you read right). The salted egg, both yolk and white, were still very moist and goes wonderfully with the gourd.
Some Yong Tau Foo
Less refined version, these YTF were huge. Make upon order, minimum 2 pieces per type. Served in thick sweet oyster sauce concoction, it was pretty delish too.
And finally, steamed fish
We had soong fish, fresh water fish. Gary requested for the fish belly portion, hence the meat was springy and smooth. Decent ginger garlic sauce, goes nicely with the fish.
Overall an enjoyable meal, would definitely pop by again for another meal :)
Kedai Makanan Pak Yoon is located at 7A, Jalan 1, Salak South Baru, KL. Across the highway from Plaza 63. Along the road very near the now demolished Besraya toll.

allie: unless there's a bigger group, then you can try more. yeah, i asked for a piece of this and that and they did not want to do the YTF..

sugar bean: nice old skool food. i cant really recall the price, i think all in was RM60. bitter gourd is very good, the YTF was nice, but the tau foo was not too smooth though

cumi&ciki: they reasoned that since they are making it based on order, they wont waste time "yong" just a piece of 2 taufoo for us :p
