Wong Li Tai Po Hakka Yong Tau Fo @ Kuchai Lama

When I need to stock up vegetables in the fridge , I will think of going to NSK for my marketing. I know, I know, those of you that swears by going to the wet market for the freshest vegetable will be tsk-tsk-tsking ‘marketing in a hypermarket is not going to the market !’, but anyway, if you are around Kuchai Lama, pop by NSK and you will find a wide variety of reasonably priced vegetables.

I was advised by Wiki Lim that there is a new yong tau foo ( YTF) shop near NSK, so we checked this out after our grocery shopping. Wong Li Tai Po is easy to spot as it’s located at the side of the Apartment block directly opposite NSK and it will be difficult to miss the signboard

The shop was about half filled when we arrived for lunch

We were given an ordering form to mark our orders. On weekdays, the YTF costs RM0.60/piece and on weekends, these are priced at RM0.80. For our meal, we chose 7 different types of YTF : fried fu chok roll, yam crispy roll, brinjal, bitterguord, ladies fingers, fu chok roll soup and white fish balls. With addition of ‘the must tries’ mentioned in the menu :  two side dishes : crab shells and yau mak in oyster sauce.@ RM5 per dish, I ordered rice ( RM1 for the small portion ) and my makan companion ordered chu cheong fun ( RM0.60)

For drinks, we ordered honey lime (RM2)  which came out of a bottleMy makan companion wasn’t impressed with the chu cheong fun,  in terms of appearance and texture, I guess it did look kinda dry , bland and sad 

The crab shells (not just shells la..got isi one inside ) was the first of the dishes  to arrive, there seemed to be a lack of consistency in the frying department as we were served  1 ‘pale’ piece and  two  tanned pieces. Taste wise : rather yummy , crab meat +other meat + celery which add another dimension to the taste, The taste remind me of the prawn rolls ( har lok) that one of  mum’s relative ( Khum Phor – RIP) used to make during Grandma ( RIP) birthdays, i missed those elaborately home cooked meal at Grandma and Grandpa’s birthdays..oh..the fish maw soup with all the goodies….

Yong tau foo – the portions were small- that one feel a bit short changed and then I realized, oh yah, we paid RM0.80 per piece, and frankly- it doesn’t even taste like fish paste . The fried YTF were oily , and the brinjal were still a bit hard , it got kinda jelak after a while and I am glad that we didn’t order too much of YTF. We couldn’t tell which was the fried fu chok roll and which was the yam crispy roll, they taste the same worrr.

As for the soupy YTF, I would rate them as average but better than the fried version as these weren’t as oily. ( lazy me can’t even be bothered to re-arrange the YTF to take a better photo..)

Yau mak in oyster sauce , the yau mak was  blanched  and  the oyster sauce poured over it, This was miserable ! They just didn’t jive, they existed as two entity, one :  soggy vegetable and the other :  tasteless ( and too salty) oyster sauce.

The bill came to RM21.20 and frankly I won’t mind paying a bit more for better yong tau foo.
