It’s time to takl about yong tau foo again, and this time around it is the famous stall that is smacked right in the middle of the city at the lorong of Petaling Street (commonly called Chinatown now, though there isn’t that many Chinese manning the stalls.)
Madras Lane Yong Tau Foo, always a with a crowd
The stall is called Madras Lane Yong Tau Foo, and to be honest I’m not entirely sure how the name came about, since the location is actually closest to Petaling Street and Lorong Bandar 20. I’m guessing it was most likely historical.
Anyway, Madras Lane Yong Tau Foo is always the busiest stall in that small stretch of street hawkers, but since serving yong tau foo is a relatively fast process, you don’t usually have to wait more than a few minutes.
I like my yong tau foo with a mix of red and green
A piece of yong tau foo is priced at RM 1.20, be it lady’s finger, fried dumpling, foo-chok, red chili, brinjal, or others. They have a pretty decent selection of both boiled and deep fried yong tou foo choices.
I usually like to have mine a healthy mix of different items, but my must-haves involves tofu, red chili, and lady’s fingers. The version here definitely did not disappoint, I particularly love their soft and flavourful fish paste stuffing.
If you’re in town and especially around Petaling Street area, this is definitely a place worth checking out.
