Yong tow foo / yong tau foo/ yong taw/tau foo/fu… these three famous wordings are translated by Cantonese language, is originally from Hakka Chinese food recipe. You will see stuffed meat in various ranges of vegetables such as: lady fingers, bean curd, bitterguords, chilli, and many others. The origin Hakka recipe will recommends fish paste and pork meat to be used as the stuffed meat. However, as Malaysia always welcomes and respects different religions to enjoy various kinds of food, most of the Yong Tau Foo contains fish paste or mixture of fish and chicken meats. However, it is advisable to ask before ordering just in case you or your friends are non-pork eater.
So the food journey started when I always drove and passed by this restaurant written “Ipoh Road Yong Tow Foo”. One day, the shop’s signboard pop out in my mind when I wake up, and I took an opportunity to go there purposely to enjoy a Yong Tow Foo meal.
