Restoran Puchong Yong Tau Fo @ Bandar Puteri, Puchong

I'm a big fan of Yong Tau Foo. I would not have known that Puchong have places that serve good and tasty Yong Tau Foo until my parents brought me to the stall located in Batu 14 Puchong years back. Since then, I've learn that Puchong has their very own version of Yong Tau Foo as well.

It was one fine Sunday when I was hunting for food with my parents in Bandar Puteri Puchong. Then our attention was caught by a rather striking orange colour signboard. It reads, Restoran Puchong Yong Tau Fo. Since my family always have the craving for Yong Tau Foo, we decided to give it a try.

I supposed it's business started not too long ago as almost everything from the table to the renovation looks new to me. Apart from that, I'm rather impressed with their cleanliness of the business premise as well.
Two thumbs up for the premise cleanliness

The first thing that you need to do before you get to enjoy your Puchong Yong Tau Foo is to head to the corner to pick your own un-stuffed Yong Tau Foo. They have plenty of varieties here, namely: brinjals, ladies finger, bitter groud, red chillies, fu chuk(beancurd skin) and tau pok. After picking them up with the tongs, just hand it over to the person in charge before returning to your table to wait for your Yong Tau Foo to be served.
Pick what you want

Besides Yong Tau Foo, they do offer other food as well.
Paper Wrap Chicken (RM 3.50)
This is one of the many side dishes that I won't miss ordering ever since my first visit. The chicken was well marinated and were overwhelmed with gravy, much to my liking. Be caution when you are unwrapping, because it is served pipping hot. Remember to ask for different part of the chicken as well, because I was being served chicken wing for twice already, how unfortunate!

Chee Cheong Fun (RM 0.70 per roll)
They serve the round Chee Cheong Fun here. Pretty ordinary, and a good substitute to rice.

Even though there was a large crowd, our Yong Tau Foo was served to us in less than 15 minutes.
Puchong Yong Tau Foo in Soup (RM 1.20 per piece)
Fish paste genuinity, where it should have the sweetness and a fresh fish aroma less the muddy taste and to compliment with a spongy texture, is what that distinguish a good Yong Tau Foo. At here, the fish paste scored well for me to reckon it as a good Yong Tau Foo. Not only that, the ingredients were very fresh as well.

The second thing that you should not miss out when having Puchong Yong Tau Foo is to have some sips in their soup.
Puchong Yong Tau Foo soup with star gooseberry
The soup here are no ordinary soup where you usually find it at a normal Yong Tau Foo stall. The soup were brimming with sweetness that will keep you sipping it. It makes me wonder at times, how much MSG have they poured in to the soup. However, I don't feel the extra thirst after the meal and that does the soup a justice. If you are fan of su chai choy (sweet leaves or gooseberry), you will love the abundance of it in the soup.

Deep fried stuffed egg plants (RM 1.20 per piece)
One of my favourite piece of ingredient during my Yong Tau Foo feast. I'd particularly like the generousness of the fish paste stuffed into the egg plants.

How can a good Yong Tau Foo be deprived of deep fried ingredients stuffed with paste. They have the usual variety like bean curd skin, sui kow (dumpling) and even oil fritters.
Mixed Variety of Deep Fried Puchong Yong Tau Foo (RM 1.20 per piece)
Among the varieties, you should not miss out the deep fried fu chuk(bean curd skin). Contrast to the usual preparation where the fu chuk piece is rolled, the fu chuck piece here with fish paste spread on top of it are being deep fried in a piece. It resulted to a tremendous crispiness of the fu chuk that went so well with the fish paste.

At RM 1.20 for a piece of Yong Tau Foo, some would reckon that it is a little pricey. However, I find the price are reasonable with the fact that the Yong Tau Foo pieces are huge and came with a very generous stuffing of genuine fish paste.

Forget about traveling to the deeper area of Puchong in Batu 14. I find this place serve equally good Puchong Yong Tau Foo, if not better. You will not be disappointed.

Atmosphere: 5/10
Food: 8/10
Price: 6.5/10
Verdict: A new place to satisfy my craving for good Yong Tau Foo!
