Kepong is never short of great food but it certainly lacks good wantan noodle. After going around tasting countless wantan mee in town, I finally found one that’s worth recommending: Fat Yoong.
Ironically Fat Yoong didn’t start out in Kepong, as they used to operate at Jalan Ipoh before relocating here a few months ago.
A normal portion is RM6 and it’s slightly more expensive than those sold in coffee shops. However, do note the generous serving of char siew which makes it worthwhile.
The noodle and wantan are just alright so I won’t rave about them, but Fat Yoong’s char siew is definitely a thing of beauty. For me, the caramelization at the edges is just spot on without being too little or overdone. And of course always ask for the ‘pun fei sao’ for the best possible experience.
I always ask for extra char siew which costs only an extra RM2.50. As you can see you will get a total of 10 thick and evenly sliced pieces of it. Another thing I like about Fat Yoong is the effort he puts into assemble the noodles ensuring every plate that goes out look identical.
Besides char siew, a range of other roast meat like chicken, duck, pork ribs and ‘siu yuk’ are also available – albeit at lesser quantity.
Among all, I’d say his roast duck and pork ribs are worth trying while the rest are nothing to shout about. Char siew is undoubtedly the main pull and the first and foremost reason to eat at Fat Yoong.
Fat Yoong restaurant is not facing the main roads so it could be tricky to find. QQ Steamboat & BBQ is a landmark you could refer, as it’s right behind about 200 meter further down the road sandwiched between the condominiums.
