Smooth. Silken. Wobbly. Melt-in-the-mouth tender. Nothing beats handcrafted tau foo fah
— a traditional Chinese cuisine that has, thankfully, not lost with time. Slurp it up and it glides down your throat and dissolves into nothingness. It’s especially comforting on days you’re feeling down.
Here are five of our favorite spots to fix tau foo fah
cravings! (Click on the restaurant names for addresses and OpenRice members' reviews.)
1. Kim Soya Bean @ Petaling Street
Lying smack in the middle of Petaling Street is this landmark tau foo fah
stall. It’s been selling its famed soy treats for decades, and has served public figures like former Prime Minister Mahathir. Fortunately, the quality of its foods hasn’t declined. The silky and tender tau foo fah
is elevated by your choice syrup — white or brown; ginger-spiked. Since it’s burning hot right off the “pot,” perhaps consider chilling the best tau foo fah down with a slur of soy milk!
2. Lims Tofufa @ P.J. SS2
This food truck can be found in P.J.’s SS2, particularly, the food court area. It runs from the late morning to late evening. If you happen to be here searching for good food, you might want to get some rich, flavorful soy milk (available in regular or “black” variety) or some smooth and soft tofu pudding to quench thirst. Be sure to let the owner know of your preference — drowning your tofu dessert with white or gingery brown sugar syrup!
3. Soya King @ Desa Setapak
While not as famous, the owner has been trucking his soy desserts around the Setapak area for few years. While the soy milk is thick and flavorful, the tau foo fah
is moreish and extremely velvety and tender. Down it with either white or brown sugar syrup. One scoop just ain’t enough!
4. Tau Foo Fah @ Seputeh Pasar Malam
A specialty of the pasar malam
here. Besides the traditional one, there are tau foo fahs
of fancier flavors, like pandan
, lychee, and corn. Despite that, the quality remains consistent with other good tau foo fah
— the soy pudding is silken, soft, and soothing on the palate and throat.
5. Tang Pin Kitchen @ P.J. SS2 and S.J. SS19
The chilled tau foo fah
has been the restaurant’s signature. Don’t let the idea of serving it chilled turn you off. The tau foo fah feels unbelievably tender, silky, and smooth but with a bit of substance on the tongue. To serve, choose good ol’ white or brown sugar, both of which are teased with the ginger’s heat and aroma, as well as the more unique almond sugar, which gives the dessert natural-tasting, lovely almond-y nuances. Nothing remotely close to those artificial, gross “almond-y” sweets.
