Tau Fu Fah is the Cantonese name for soy bean curd, which is served in sweet syrup or Malacca sugar syrup as a Chinese traditional dessert.
Still remember the road named Dato Tahil Azar Road? In between the Hakka Mee restaurant and the Salty Chicken restaurant, there is a small shop, named "Kei Foong" or "Funny Mountain".
Erm... The shop is just about the size of a store room. Don't be surprise, this is indeed the famous soybean milk and dessert shop.
I think this is one of the oldest dessert stall in Ipoh. It's been 3 generations, over 50 years. My dad used to bring me here for my favorite dessert when I was a kid.
Okay, back to the stall. Why would people coming to this little stall until causing traffic jam? (People usually just park the car along the road and have a drink in the car before they continue their journey, the stall is really too small for more tables.)
Everyday, the boss started to prepare the drink and dessert early in the morning. The whole process consumes about 3 hours. By following the secret recipe from his ancestor, the soybean drink and dessert taste nice, smooth and rich in nutrient.
In addition, it is claimed that only the water in Kinta Valley/Ipoh can make this Chinese traditional dessert as smooth and tasty as it is. Therefore, you will never find another branch of it in anywhere within the Malaysia.
And guess what, it costs you less than RM1 to taste this yummy dessert! How could you resists to have a try on it?
