Yong Tau Fu @ Kedai Mee Siew, Puchong Batu 14
Two doors away from the renowned Puchong Yong Tau Fu at Puchong Batu 14 is another popular Yong Tau Fu restaurant, called Kedai Mee Siew and Yong Tau Fu (in Mandarin). On all the occasions that I had my dinner at Puchong Batu 14, I have always noticed a full-house crowd at Kedai Mee Siew.
That had always made me wonder what was the highly sought food. And the lack of signboard didn’t help too. Before my visit yesterday, I could only speculate that noodles was the crowd puller, which turned out to be only half correct because both noodles and Yong Tau Fu are available.
Actually our original plan was to eat at Puchong Yong Tau Fu, as it has never failed us so far. But before we reached our destination, our plan was quickly derailed. Fascinated by the number of people having their dinner at Kedai Mee Siew, we decided to give it a try instead of always eating at the same place.
The modus operandi here is simple, take a basket and pick the items you want like taufu pok, bean curd sheets, ladies’ fingers, brinjal etc. Then pass the basket to the counter where the stuffing of fish paste and deep frying will take place. Dumplings are to be ordered separately though.
For noodles there are Pan Mee, Curry Mee and Ching Thong Noodles. A particularly interesting side order is the curry chicken ala rendang style, RM3.50 a piece.
Each Yong Tau Fu item cost RM1. I think it’s pretty justified given the fresh ingredients and nice portions. Taste wise it turned out to be very good, a lot better than what I expected. The Yong Tau Fu, made using fresh ingredients and prepared fresh upon order really makes a difference – crazily crispy and goes well with the sauce given.
Even the soup is great, especially enjoyable during the hazy days like now. I only hope MSG was not the reason for the soup being awesomely tasty.. At least I didn’t experience any ‘Chinese Restaurant Syndrome’ later despite gulping down most of the soup all by myself.
It’s a shame the dumplings (Sui Kao) @ RM1 each weren’t as good as the Yong Tau Fu. The spoiler was the mild smell of reused oil in the dumplings.
The kitchen is open and you can clearly see what’s going on with your food. I had to hide the guy’s face. If you are the person in the photo and reading this, don’t worry you don’t have a face problem nor I have anything against you.. just wanna protect your identity. I chose a smiley simply because you were indeed smiling happily at the time the photo was taken lol.
This is the full-house crowd I mentioned earlier. Seeing this alone, does anyone need any more reasons to try the Yong Tau Fu at Kedai Mee Siew? I know I don’t. In fact, I’m glad I tried it.
If I were to compare Kedai Mee Siew (also known as the smaller one) with Puchong Yong Tau Fu, I would say the former is better but you get a slightly slower service.

When having dinner together one night recently, a close friend of mine AhJames mentioned to me that Everyday Food Court‘s Roast Duck Rice is quite good. Heeding his recommendation, I purposely dropped by Puchong one day for lunch at the said food court even though my office was located at Cyberjaya. This food court was

After my first visit to Caff (an Italian Fusion Restaurant) last year, it has become one of my favorite western food restaurant in Bandar Puteri Puchong for its reasonably priced great food.

While I was flipping through the newspaper one Sunday, a particular food related article caught my attention. Usually I won’t pay much attention to the articles because they are introducing foods mostly located in KL. But, the article that day talked about the Sisters famous Curry Laksa noodles at Seapark opening a branch in Bandar

How did you celebrate your Christmas? Well, I kind of celebrated it over a shabu shabu meal at Restaurant Shabu Shabu located in Bandar Puteri Puchong. And since most of my friends have went back to hometown on the very day, I went alone. Sounds damn pity huh, lol. Even after blogging about food for

F1 Restaurant was one of my favorite [tag]western food[/tag] restaurants during my uni days. The restaurant’s selling point is none other than using the famous F1 drivers and teams’ name in their menu. You would see Ferrari Mixed Grill, Honda Mixed Grill, Mercedes Mixed Grill and even Schumacher’s favorite! Just the restaurant’s unique theme was
