Foong Foong – “How do I explain this?”

Experiences are remembered through sight, sometimes smell, always pain, and often taste. The Foong Foong restaurant will be well remembered for the unusual smells, aromas, and of course the taste. 

This is an odd culinary cuisine, “How do I explain this?” The common protein ingredient is a fish paste. Vegetables and dumplings are stuffed with the secret recipe then boiled in stock or deep fried. 

Food prep stations are situated around the restaurant.

Buckets and buckets of Tofu

Dumplings in broth, stuffed ladies fingers (Okra), white tofu, bitter gourd, red chilies and fish balls make up a filling, inexpensive meal and apparently locals can’t get enough of this.

Known as Yong Tau Foo it is essentially a clear consomme soup containing a varied selection of food items including fish balls, crab sticks, bittergourds, cuttlefish,lettuce, ladies fingers, as well as chilis, and various forms of fresh produce, seafood and meats common in Chinese cuisine. (Wiki)

      Un Poco,
      I’d give it a 5 because it’s not something i would travel a great distance for. But then again, change that to a 6 or 7 because it is good food and unique.

    This is Foong Foong…Now I know…:)
    I see it is healthy with fresh ingredient as long as you didn’t take the deep fried….;) but having once a while is fine…..
