Every year, right after our annual family affair at the Guan Ti Temple along Jalan Tun HS Lee, we will always head to the Penjaja Gallery Tun HS Lee for our yong tau foo lunch. It became a habit we practice religiously and I believed it will carry on until when one day, the owners of the yong tau foo stall decide to put an end to their family business.
One of the main crowd-puller at this hawker place, this legendary yong tau foo stall has been in business for 3 generations and is very popular among locals. For tourists, this will be a good chance to sample local street food in a nostalgic environment - a setting that never seemed to have changed since decades.
While the yong tau foo may not look very beautiful but it is very good and definitely worth the trouble. For RM 1 per piece, it is quite a deal since the size is quite big and has a lot of fish paste.
To be sure, just ask the stall owners where you can sit. If you intend to order dishes from other stalls to go with the yong tau foo, then make sure you order from the stall that is in good terms with the yong tau foo stall.
