It’s been a while since I had any decent Yong Tau Foo (釀豆腐) like the one at Ampang, so we headed to Segambut for the famous Jalan Ipoh Yong Tau Foo last weekend. The name might be a little deceiving, for this restaurant is not exactly located at Jalan Ipoh, but at Jalan Segambut, just off Jalan Duta.

Jalan Ipoh Yong Tau Foo, Segambut
much better set up and parking situations than Ampang

We got to the restaurant at about 2pm in the afternoon, purposely avoid the heavy lunch crowd. As the restaurant is a converted bungalow, there are ample parking space, unlike Ampang Yong Tau Foo’s dreadful parking situation.

Ordering the food is pretty simple here, they provide a form and you basically just fill in the numbers, like some of the dim sum places. This saves time for both the customers and the restaurant operators, I can only wonder why the other places don’t do this. For the five six of us, we ordered 72 pieces of goodness and some rice for the first round. Of course, we added 10 more for 2nd round.

don’t these make you drool? Yummm

If my memory serves me correct, there were 5 pieces of white tofu, 8 pieces of brinjal (egg plant), 4 bitter gourd, 10 red chili, 8 lady fingers (okra), 10 fish balls, 11 fried sui kow, 6 soup sui kow, 15 fried foo chok (bean curd skin), 5 rice, and some drinks. On top of that, we had a fruit rojak as appetizer. Quite a portion for 3 4 guys and 2 girls.

For the newbie to Malaysian cuisine, most Yong Tau Foo pieces are stuffed with fish paste. The exception being sui kow, fish ball, and foo chok.

we didn’t leave anything behind

The good thing about this place is that the food is served almost instantaneously, so you can satisfy your hunger right from the get go. As for taste, it is right up there with their Ampang counterparts, with the rojak being the exception. I guess Penangites are a little more picky when it comes to fruit rojak.

Price wise, at REM 0.70 a piece, it is very competitive. We spent only around RM 15 each after filling our stomachs to the point of having difficulty in walking.

This Yong Tau Foo place is just a stone’s throw from the Duta round-about

Good food, reasonable price, and a comfortable eating environment, this place is definitely worth repeating visits.

  11. Next time, don snap a person’s picture while she/he is chewing the food!

  12. Best!

  13. been there.. but still think the wan in ampang is better. A shop called foong foong.. (after the ampang police station, turn right at the traffic light.. go straight in n turn right at the junction.. shop is on your left)

    parking is a slight problem.. but the yong tau foo there justify everything else.. 🙂

  14. wye – the most original ampang yong tau foo was the one situated at the now flamingo hotel. many many moons ago, you get to see them preparing it in the old way with them pounding the mackerel, pork in the old fashion mortar pestle.

    then they will fry them and serve while you soak up the lake scenery.

  15. THIS IS NICE!!! My hangout place for lunch!!! But parking is crazeee…

    Is this the same shop as the one near the roundabout, in that shack in the same compound as the car workshop?

  18. Looneytune,

    You are absolutely right!

  19. LT, they have moved across the road a long time ago

  20. Looneytune

    It looks like a better location. Hopefully parking is not so much a problem now. Thanks KY. At least I’ll be able to find them when I get back next time.

  21. Yes. Agreed with you that this Yong Tau Fu pretty nice, especially the fry fuk zuk and fry sui gao. But..very crowded during lunch time.

  22. […] The two other items, however, were surprisingly good. The yong tau foo is not any less tasty than the real thing, and the soup carries a very unique peppery taste (in a good way) that is very different from the non-halal version. […]

  23. […] 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 […]

  24. Wow, I just googled yong tau foo n clicked on the 2nd photo, n here I am!

    My grandma lives nearby, and I use to come here and eat very often. Nice to see a familiar place even on the net! very nostalgic, as its been 3 years since I went back. Keep up the good post! cheers!

  25. Looneytune,
    Yah, much better location

    Agreed. 😀

    Kevin K,
    Thanks thanks. 🙂

  30. Was at this place but was manage to consume only 2 fried foo chuk, 2 lady finger, and that’s it… Apparently the rest of the things were finish.. The sad part is…. Nobody told us and we were left there looking at our white rice and plain soup… :(. Bad experience not forgetting their bad services.

  31. […] Valley are usually eaten together with rice, not noodles. Everything are priced at RM1 per piece (KY Speaks said it was RM0.70 only 3 years ago). Other than yong tau foo, there are other stalls selling […]
