Jalan Ipoh Yong Tau Foo @ Jalan Ipoh

We were very hungry after the Kanching Waterfalls outing. We would not want to have Bak Kut Teh since it has been 2 consecutive weeks we had that. We opted for the famous Jalan Ipoh Yong Tau Foo. The parking there was a a little bit problem as they have limited parking space. We were lucky to be able to get a car park though without waiting.

Fruits Rojak (RM 6)
This rojak is fantastic. It was heavily drizzled with minced groundnuts making each of the fruits have a fair coating of the groudnuts. The sauce were great too, setting up a perfect appetizer before our Yong Tau Foo comes.

Paper Wrapped Chicken
The chicken were tender, juicy and well marinated. It was well flavoured with some sweetness very much to my liking. Two thumbs up from me!

Fried Foo Chuk & Sui Kow (RM 1 per piece)
The foo chuk is fluffy and crispy. It was surprise as the foo chuk is not that oily. Obviously it can't beat the Foong Foong Foo Chuk at Ampang, but definitely it is one of the better foo chuk I had around. Meanwhile, the fried sui kow tasted very ordinary.

Mixed Yong Tau Foo (RM 1 per piece)
Nothing to really shout about. It was alright for me as the fish paste tasted very original. It's not something that really wow-ed me as what I heard around.

Fish Ball & Sui Kow Soup (RM 1 per piece)
Fish ball was pure with fish paste. However the sui kow was terrible. I can't taste the presence of the sui kow paste as it lacks the prawn meat and other essential ingredients such as water chestnut.

First time I had a meal here after long hearing it from people around. It was an alright meal but at RM 1.00 a piece, it is not really a yong tau foo that I will make me go back there for more.

Atmosphere: 5/10
Food: 5.5/10
Price: 5/10
Verdict: It was alright but nothing to shout about as there is much better Yong Tau Foo serving around

Location: Very near the roundabout at National Archive Building( Lembaga Peperiksaan Negara). Assuming National Archive Building on your left side, take the 12 o'clock exit at the roundabout. Keep going straight and after the traffic light, you will see the stall on your left side.
