Ipoh Yong Tau Foo

Was surprised by the array of variety available! It's located at a hawker stall stall and the Yong Tau Foo stall is right upfront - cannot be missed. Got there using Waze by keying in the address: 652 Jalan King, Ipoh. When I was there it was 10.30am and it wasn't crowded at all - was told it... read more

An experience eating my bouncy fish paste you tau foo & the "sar kok liew" (deep fried stuffed turnip) in the shack under the shady trees. Wish I will come again for more.

The atmosphere is your typical Malaysian hawker food court. Not the best hygiene, packed and shouting for service. If you are used to this, then you will fit right in. I am ok with it and did enjoy it rather well. The food quality varies. The yong tau foo was good and so was the wan tan mee and mee... More

Very touristy. Too many people in the weekends. Check it out on weekdays but be aware they do close on certain weekdays. I think it is the fresh churning out yong tau foo pieces that makes it popular! Must try the Sar Kot!

A must try when you are back in Ipoh! . Rumors had it that the "famous" Yong Tau Fu has moved to a nicer coffee shop just beside the original stall. And many seem to be confused which is the original stall. Well, I have tried both stalls and put my opinion into this. The new stall with a blue... More

Yes, when you get there, there will be people on loudspeaker to draw you in to this new building next to the old/origin place of the Big Tree Foot (BTF) Yong Tau Fu (YTF). I went to the new building twice, but were highly disappointed, TWICE. On my third visit, well, third time's the charm. Later when I asked locals,... More

If you look for good & up to standard yong tau fu in Ipoh, you shouldn't miss out Big Tree Foot, which have wide selections of freshly prepared stuffed tau fu, fish balls, bitter gourds, chilies & other fried food as well. I personally recommend their fried sah kok that made from yam beans. You can have it with hor... More
