eat tofu

No, not that kind of eating tofu. I had a dSLR malfunction and the shutter went off at the wrong time.

There is a famous stall in Ipoh that has legendary melt-in-your mouth tofu fa. I was brought there by the EZY sisters – Eiling, Ziling and Yiling. It’s called Funny Mountain Tao Fu Fa

…and it has apparently received accolades from the print media.

…as well as the locals, which is always a good sign. The line was long, but they process the queue with the ease of experienced old hands (another good sign – anymore and it’ll be like the second coming of Jesus).

Tofu fa is made from soybeans and resembles a really soft pudding. It’s bean curd gelatin and it’s usually served with sugar syrup and consumed while hot. Best of all, it’s only RM 0.80 per bowl! =D

Interestingly, tofu fa is translated as “tender tofu blossom”.

  1. 80 cents only! It’s fuckin cheap. Don’t think I can even buy a bowl of tau fu fah of that price in KL…

  2. ahh.. wonder where is the place… never really see it before though T__T..

  3. Not in Kuching too…
    I want it~~~

  4. I like it with the ginger syrup. Yah tau fu fa in KL bloody expensive.

  5. There’s no taufu far here in the UK so we buy those package one (powdery mix) and make our own taufu far…its like…yuck….but we still have to endure it to satisfy the taufu far crave…

  6. One of the smoothest tau fa fahs I ever tasted.

  7. 80 SENS??? SERIOUSLY?
    I haven’t seen prices like that in… 11 years.

  8. Looks to me like the dSLR went off at exactly the right time…

  9. reminds me of this amazing tofu jelly ( another version of to fu fa)in Penang that i had!

  10. it’s the only drive thru tau fu fa that I know of :P

  11. That sound not bad tofu fa. We have only at Asian supermarket if knew when is right day to get it fresh and warm otherwise instant mix with hot water but not the same.

  12. dSLR function my ass….

  13. You should post the road name also la… But anyways, the TFF is really good!!!

  14. at least tell us the whole experience. . . .make us salivate dude . . . .lolz

  16. The most funny thing is, we didn’t know this place until we moved down to KL! But better late than never!

  17. dear hb.. u dun need to go so far to ipoh.. guess whereever you be.. there’s always free TFF for you.. hahhahahah

  18. Mate, those legs must have eaten lot’s of to fu fa…. bloody white legs….. Must get my countrywomen to eat lots of them. Let them all be white like Ipoh mali (mari) (chinaman can’t speak)

  19. Jac: Yup, it’s cheap and it’s nice! Great stuff indeed…made old skool style. Notice the wooden receptacle they make it in.
    Agnes: It’s in Ipoh…somewhere. Eiling’s post would probably have more details since she’s from Ipoh.
    Pinkydog: Kuching has some great TFF. India street, one of the street vendors. :)
    ShaolinTiger: Ginger syrup, yeah makes it less cloyingly sweet. :)
    cindy: Interesting. I never did like TFF before or any tofu based products. I don’t know, just not a big fan of tofu (and bean sprouts). I do eat some nowadays though, but when I was young, I shunned it, as well as ALL vegetables. :)
    Jason: Yup, some great stuff indeed. :)
    Naoko: Yeah, but then again it’s in Ipoh, not Klang Valley. :)
    Crash Gordon: Haha! Well, that idea for this post kinda derailed the whole TFF review thing. It just got stuck in my mind and I was so tired when I got off work that I just posted it.
    chefmel: Penang! Another foodie heaven. :)
    Come, we have to go one of these days. :)
    khai: Yeah, I was told it was the ONLY drive through TFF place. Interesting concept. Haha!
    Vickie: I’ve had durian from an Asian grocery in Melbourne. It didn’t taste all that good…at all. It was frozen before transportation.
    victor: Haha! Well, got wardrobe malfunction also can have dSLR malfunction. ;)
    eiling: …but that’s what the link to your post is for. Details from an Ipoh girl. :)
    Mine is from a different angle, no pun intended. ;)
    foodcrazee: Yeah, my bad, was quite tired yesterday. The person scoops the stuff from the old skool wooden bucket and sugar syrup is added. I shall post more details next time, I’m quite brain dead right now. :(
    -=ram=-: No worries mate, he didn’t mean it maliciously. It’s cool actually. :)
    YilingL: Eh, really? Strange now that. I thought it was ze most famous stall for TFF in Ipoh. :)
    goolooloo: Haha! No, I have to pay RM 0.80 one. ;)

  20. Haha! Well, a lot of people use the term “Ipoh Mali” and I don’t mean it maliciously when I use it, but I wonder how Ipoh people feel about this term. Hmm…food for thought.

  21. Ah, hell. And so, in conclusion, f0lks, -=RetArdzM=- Boy here has made a f00l out of himself once again. Only at! LO-not-L-ly .
    Apologies to Mr. Victor there (but then again, you really should have added this: ‘:)’ or something at the end of your sentences, mang), and please delete my pile of shit up there, HB sir. Thanks, m4ng. :)

  22. No worries mate! It takes a man to apologize. You sir, is a man in my eyes. :)

  23. oh, i missed out on a pile of shit…. at any rate, im sure it was a juicy read. no problems, and it was my bad for not including the smiley thing or sarcasm tags.
    *drops pants*

  24. victor: Heh, well on the net it is customary to put emoticons or sarcasm tags to avoid wrong mind parses. ;)

  25. Woah thar dude, put ‘em back on please.111 make you feel better there mang, let me just tell you that i DID NOT go and type out any dumb bullcrap telling you to go eat feces or to go keee-yuuu yourself or something like that (imma said to to mahself actually lol). BUT, i DID go ahead and, er….CALLED HB AN HUAI BANANA AGAINZZZ LOL. you know, for da benefit of all them HB Haters Kids Fun Club members. They see HB’s name modified like dat, they laugh so hard until they shit themselves, then when it’s time for them to go clean up the dumb-shit mess that they made..they go and FAILZ completely at it because they just plain suck at everything (except for when it comes to shitting themselves, they are just TOO good at that). Oh, THEN they go and fap themselves silly to the, um, BANANA’d name which i hAzCrEatEdlOlz there. But of course, since they are supposed to be FAILures when it comes to doing just about anything even remotely right (except for soiling themselves, now don’t go forgetting that anymore), ya think they actually MANAGED to enjoy ANYTHING from those masterbation sessions of theirs? Of course not. So, upon realizing this, all them Trollz suddenly went on off like this yo: RAAAAAAWWRRZZ LETZ BLAME HB ER I MEAN HUAI BANANAZ NOWZ LOL2, and so proceeds they to enter the commenting section of the latest posting to dish out their usual serving of t0tar11y-piss-us-off, stupid-ass troll-shit and neh…blah blah blah blarb. You know the rest. Heh, and THAT’S how it is, d00ds.

  26. oh dear, i was just thinking how much i miss this tau foo fa from funny mountain.
    and btw, that hematoma on your neck a few posts up is very apparent :P

  27. I just did a review on this place too …. absolutely awesome TFF. I don’t think there’s anywhere else that serves TFF this good …

  28. Lainie: Yup, good stuff eh?
    Eh? Really? I can’t remember how I got it. ;)
    Timothy Low: There’s a good one in India St in Kuching but it’s not as good as Funny Mountain. :)
