Restoran Foong Foong - Ampang Yong Tau Foo

Restoran Foong Foong has been in existence for as long as I can remember. Lunching there brings back fond memories of my childhood. A treat for me then was to go for lunch at Foong Foong's. I love the Yong Tau Foo there. It was simply delicious as far as my young impressionable mind is concerned. The piece de resistance for me has always been the fried sui kow.
When my hubby suggested lunch there on Christmas day after church service, I was more than happy to indulge! As it was then as it is now, getting a table at Foong Foong is no mean feat. There is nary an empty table when we arrived, so we had to resort to standing next to the diners to finish their food. We ordered a plate (that ended with an extra order) of the fried sui kow that I loved so much. It tastes just like how it used to be, with the perfect crispy sui kow skin and bouncy fish filling with bits of jicama and carrots that gave it an extra bite. As with how I used to love this, my daughter now loves this too.

We also ordered an assortment of soft tofu, fishballs, soya beancurd skins, brinjals and ladies fingers. The yong tau foo came stuffed with sufficient fish paste that were nice. The only downside was they must have added a lot of MSG into the food coz I was so thirsty after lunch. Be as it may, Foong Foong is still my favourite yong tau foo haunt.
Foong Foong is located at 621-A Jalan Merdeka, 68000 Ampang.
