One of the local delights that I enjoy eating over and over again is Yong Tau Foo, especially when looking for a fast and no frill meal with very little waiting time. I have traveled to quite a few places to sample the few famous outlets around Ampang and Segambut for this dish, but they remain a bit too far to go on a regular basis. I was delighted that the Ipoh Road Yong Tau Foo opened a branch at Kelana Jaya, very close to where I stay.

note: this place is, unfortunately, closed. The original Ipoh Road Yong Tau Foo is still operating though. (see link above)

Ipoh Road Yong Tow Foo, Kelana Jaya branch
clean and comfortable environment

Unlike the main branch at Jalan Ipoh, this place does not stress you so much on the parking situation. The restaurant, while not air conditioned, is pretty clean and comfortable. Crowd level was still quite small when I went on a weekday evening as I guess it has not been discovered by many casual diners yet.

yong tow foo, paper wrapped chicken, and fried sui kao (dumpling)

I ordered my usual favorites, including chili, bitter gourd, okra, tofu, fried dumpling, and one of their unique offerings, the paper wrapped chicken.

Unsurprisingly, this branch lives up to the reputation of the original Jalan Ipoh main branch when it comes to taste. The ingredients are fresh and the fish paste stuffings firm and flavorful. Looking at their smallish kitchen, I am guessing that all the yong tau foo is probably prepared at the main branch and transported here daily.

operating time and prices are all here!

Similar with many dim sum places, ordering is a simple affair of jotting down the number of pieces you want for each item and pass it to the waiter. Prices and opening hours are conveniently displayed on the wall, and of course, conveniently displayed here for you!

I think I’m going there again soon. :D

Discuss : KY eats – Ipoh Road Yong Tau Foo, Kelana Jaya branch

  1. Isn’t this shop located somewhere around the place where you had your Chicken Rice previously? Miss having yong tau foos…the last time we had were the ones in Malacca, which is very very good too! Hehe.. :p

  2. I prefer Ampang’s or the Hakka’s style, which have pork inside.

  3. My colleague went to the branch in Dataran Sunway twice, and twice she ended up with diarrhea.

  4. twosuperheroes,
    Yah, just a few shops down the same road.

    Jason,
    I can see that you are a pork lover.

    hcfoo,
    Personally I never had any stomach problem with this shop. Maybe your friend is unlucky. :)

  5. Yummy, I like yong tau fu too!

  6. hmm..yong tau foo…not really my cuppa tea…but I still prefer the stall in Restoran O&S. The fu chuk and deep fried sui kow were very good.

  7. If my Yong Tau Fu doesn’t come with pork, it doesn’t taste good. lol …… Always must accompany it with a pork leg vinegar. (Tu Kar Chor)

  8. Neo,
    best!

    JL,
    Yeah that one is pretty good too.

    Ken Chan,
    This one does have pork. :P

  9. I stay near Jln Ipoh, yet I go to Ampang and Puchong for Yong Tao Fu. Someone kill me.

  13. jefferi,
    Interesting, interesting. :)

    Michelle,
    Come back!

  14. I live in Jalan Ipoh and I’ve been eating their yoong tau fu since i was 3 feet tall.
    Practically see their small shack business turn into a franchise.
    Never the less, good food is served!
    I love their brinjal and the fried dumpling the most.
    Just oozes my desire to order more.
    Great pick for a yoong tau fu restaurant.

  15. Looneytune

    This place is very near my house too. Went there when I went back over CNY,must say was not too impressed. Thought the one in Jalan Ipoh was better.

  16. mmm i saw it few times but never wondered if this is the real branch. is the food as good as the jln ipoh’s?

  17. BenjaminSiew,
    Wow you must be one loyal customer

    Looneytune, rokh,
    I thought they tastes pretty much the same. Not to mention that parking situation is much better here.

  18. I have tried the Ipoh Road Hakka Yong Tau Fu in Kelana Jaya, but i still prefer the Ipoh Road Hakka Yong Tau Fu in KLANG BRANCH because their ROYAL HERBAL CHICKEN is very delicous. And their Yong Tau Fu is very fresh and delicious too. Must try KLANG BRANCH.

  19. Lily,
    ooOO Royal Herbal Chicken, interesting. Where is it though, Klang is big…

    Lucky i still have their bill with me, enclosed herewith the address : No. 53 & 55, Lorong Batu Nilam 4, Bandar Bukit Tinggi, 41200 Klang.Tel No. 019-3281216. Is really delicious, to be honest.

  21. Lily,
