3A yong tau foo at rothmans roundabout, pj...

This particular joint is a regular dinner haunt for Sunshine and I. Firstly its located very near office and lastly how can we resist some fresh healthy yong tau foo (YTF)! Restoran 3A Yong Tau Foo & Chee Cheong Fun has been around for ages. Can't recall how long but I still remember eating there almost 12 odd years ago. Unless of course it was a different YTF place then.

Its located just after Rothmans Roundabout, Section 19. Very easy to spot as its next to Restoran Green View, who is famous for their Sang Har Meen. Their menu range from all sorts of yong tau foo (fried or boiled) goodies, chee cheong fun (black sauce or curry), some noodles, veggy/meat/seafood dishes and chinese desserts.

The must have condiments for yong tau foo. Their pickled green chilis are really addictive. Sunshine can't stop eating it till she got a tummy ache one day from the overdose of vinegar. Hehe.

First up is always their Chee Cheong Fun (RM2.20). Smooth in texture and comes in a sizeable portion is very yummy indeed. Love the generous topping of deep fried onions, dried shrimp bits and sesame seeds. Gives the dish an extra ooomph. Both the black (slightly sweetish) and curry (not too spicy and flavorful) sauces are just as good.

All of their yong tau foo choices are fresh and tasty. They only cost RM0.80 per piece which is pretty reasonable. The best fried stuff to order would be their Sui Kow, Foo Chuk and Wantan. The items come to your table freshly fried unlike some places that have it sitting outside for ages.

The best boiled stuff would be their Japanese Taufoo, Okra, Brinjal (slightly grilled) and White Taufoo. Love how silky smooth both the taufoo varieties are. Their soup is flavorful but I tend not to have too much of it. Not too sure if they use MSG or not.

If you are not up for yong tau foo, you can always opt for their cooked dishes which are pretty good as well. The Asam Pedas Squid, Fish or Sting Ray are really nice. Priced reasonably at RM8, RM10 or RM12 depending on portion. They also have nice Honey Fried Chicken and Homemade Taufoo.

To wash all of the food down, don't forget to try their homemade Soybean (RM1.70) drink. Especially piping hot during a rainy day. Very refreshing. Their Cincau (RM1.70) and Sour Lemon drink isn't all that bad either.

I would rate this as the best yong tau foo restaurant in Petaling Jaya. Service is good and fast plus their food always fresh and consistant. Give them a try one of these days and you won't be disappointed! :D
