Taste Of Foochow @ Pudu
Malaysia is a multicultural society of which the population is made up by different types of ethnic groups includes Malays, Chinese, Indian and the Native. Among the Malaysian population, Chinese form the second largest ethnic group after the Malay majority. Most are descendants of Southern Chinese immigrants who arrived in Malaysia between the early 19th century and the mid-20th century. The major sub-ethnic groups of Malaysian Chinese includes Hokkien, Cantonese, Hakka, Teochew, Hainan and Foochow. Today I’m going to share about the Foochow food that I tried at Taste Of Foochow nestled in Pudu.
A fuss-free restaurant with simple setting, open space and non air conditioned.
Vast media coverage being displayed on the wall.
Assorted noodles dominated the menu with several Foochow specialty dishes such as Foochow Fish Balls, Eggy Noodles 蛋燕, Red Wine Chicken and Foochow Yanpi Wonton 福州燕皮云吞.
Dry Eggy Noodle (RM7.50)
My first tried of Foochow Eggy Noodle at Sitiawan was utterly pleasant, so I ordered this without hesitation when I saw this in the menu.
However I was slapped with disappointment. (⋟﹏⋞) The noodles was mushy and starchy, it didn’t turn out to be the tasty chewy noodle that I was expecting. The soy sauce mixture also far from being impressive.
Ho Fun & Mee Hoon Soup (RM6.50)
Soupy noodle was just decent, it was just an ordinary bowl of noodles.
Noodles was served with assorted meat balls and they were nothing out of ordinary as well.
Foochow Fried Pancake (RM2.50)
Only available on Sunday, the pancake was served cold to us with tough chew skin and the meat filling was lack of flavour. (´･_･`)
Verdict: The food we tried was lackluster and it would be hard to be convinced for a revisit. But I saw a FB friend from Penang dined in this place too after my visit and he likes the food. Perhaps I’ve ordered the wrong dishes, you may come and try the food and let me know what do you think.
