Mala Yong Tau Foo

I first blogged about this Mala Yong Tau Foo ($4.20 for 6 items with rice/noodles; additional 60 cents for Mala soup) about 2 years ago and am happy I have revisited it recently.

The selection of Yong Tau Foo items still remains good with some interesting items like luncheon meat and kelp. The soup is not as spicy as it looks but just adds a mild numbing feel (from the Szechuan peppercorns) and a touch of heat. Good option if one is tired of the the usual ikan bilis and soy beans stock or laksa version though it's a far cry from the searing mala hot pots.

Chew On This: It's nice to see that this stall pays a bit more attention to details for eg it adds ice to the stuffed tofu to keep it chilled and fresh and peels the tough fibrous outer skin of the broccoli stems.
