Foong Foong Ampang Yong Tau Foo

People from a distance away as far as Petaling Jaya would take the trouble to travel to Ampang town for a savoury of its famous Yong Tau Foo and what is so special about this YTF. My previous posting of Foong Foong can be viewed here where a group of cyclists rode there for the food..
One thing for sure these YTF are freshly prepared for you. We were there 15 minutes before 9.00am on a Sunday and was told to wait until 9.00 for the food we were served with Chinese tea while waiting for the food to be ready.
Awesome Sui Kow with super crispy fried skin with its delicious hot ingredients in the inside.
Customs started to pour in even the food wasn't ready to be served.
This guy will take your order and voice it over the mike. And when you want to pay he will voice it to the kitchen again to confirm the no. of YTF you have ordered. At the kitchen there is another microphone to respond his call. Ain't it an unique system and what a great characteristic of this restaurant.
This system has been in used over the years even before the use of wifi or PDA to communicate between your order and the kitchen.
 The amount of helpers to prepare the food is quite substantiate.
 Even young kids are seen helping out (wondering whether these kids were working part time).
Foong Foong is the most popular among the several shops in Ampang. The one next door to Foong Foong seems to be enjoying spill over business. I wonder whether there is any difference in taste between the two.

My favourite place for yong taufu. You should also try this traditional hk dimsum place along the same road. It's called Heng Fatt. Damn nice old school dimsum while i'm at Ampang. No. 33 jln besar.
