I’ve finally have the chance to try out the YTF here, which was very much talked about, at least by HL. The last 2 times I came, the place was closed. Both CSK and SKWS told me that the rojak was nice, even before I reach there. So SKWS was courteous enough to place the order on rojak once we sat down. While HL was salivating over the steamed peanuts.

... I guess this used to be a club house, which now has been turned into a restaurant.

The peanuts were ok but I preferred those from Tai Thong. HL said those were soya sauced peanuts while these were steamed peanuts. To me, both were steamed except Tai Thong’s have a little personal touch to it, to add in more flavours. Else how could they get to be so fat?

Then came the rojak. Despite all the hypes, it was rather mediocre. It tasted a little like vegetarian rojak I had in Organic Vegetarian Fresh Mart & Restaurant. The prawn paste was not that prominent in taste. After about 15 minutes to it, the paste starts to turn watery. I guess the rojak in DoReMi was just as good.

As to the YTF, aside from the enormous size of the ding dong bitter gourd YTF, others were just mediocre. I was expecting the fried bean curd skin to be in rectangular shapes, but the one we were served was rolled up into cylindrical shape. HL said, only the one in Puchong serves rectangular fried bean curd skin YTF. I beg to differ. So far as I recall, this was probably the only place that serves cylindrical shaped fried bean curd skin, which I’ve had my whole life. I don’t like it because it can’t put out the full potential of fried bean curd skin.

Lastly, the sauces were not nice either. I’d anytime go for the Puchong’s YTF anytime, just for the sauce with mix of jalapeno in it, which was heavenly.
