I decided to stop by the food court at Plaza Merdeka on my first night in Kuching. I had the yong tau foo here on one of my last trips here as well. It was quite disappointing this time, as they have become rather stingy with their portions. This bowl (pictured above) was RM6.
Basically, the ingredients are a ringgit a piece. Each fishball, each strip of tofu, each mushroom and each floret of brocolli cost RM1. Horrific, really.
They had leafy veg, broccoli, button mushrooms, mushrooms, chicken eggs birds’ eggs, crabsticks, crabclaws, tofu blocks, seaweed, deep fried tofu, tofu skins…
The stuffed tofu blocks weren’t very fresh. The soup was okay, better than what you get at Kuching airport.
Not all the things served are pesca-friendly. It is easy to mistake the meatballs for fish.
Decided to have cendol after, as the yong tau foo was a bit of a diasppointment. The cendol here is made with shaved ice, evaporated milk, red (azuki) beans and the cendol bits. It was good; would be better on a hot day, though.
