Kuala Lumpur - Chinatown Eats @ Madras Lane

klyeoh | Sep 3, 201105:10 AM

I was told that Madras Lane in the heart of KL Chinatown has been purveying excellent local street eats for decades, and the stalls still do roaring trade every day.

I tried a couple of those old stalls today. The first one was something of a local legend: the Madras Lane Yong Tau Foo. This stall was busy with customers, each selecting their yong tau foo morsels: fishpaste-stuffed tofu, aubergines, okra, peppers, deep-fried wantons, sui kau and tofu-pei (crisp-fried rolls of beancurd-skin). I thought everything I had was absolutely scrumptious, especially with the chilli sauce & hoisn sauce dips.
