Restoran 3A Yong Tau Foo & Cheong Fun @ Damansara Utama, Selangor

Every time I go to The Ship in Uptown I pass this restaurant and had always made a mental note to come here someday. Just that it had always been postponed until today. We were here around 7pm and there were just a few customers in the restaurant.

The Restaurant at Damansara Utama
To locate this restaurant is quite easy. It is located in the same row of shop lots as The Ship in Damansara Utama. Once we were in and got our table, we were attended to by the waiter. They seemed to have a huge staff waiting in the restaurant. Perhaps business must be pretty good.

The Menu
As you can see from the above photo, they had quite a number of offerings and it was not limited to Yong Tau Foo and Cheong Fan. As I wanted to try more of the other main dishes as well, we placed minimal items for the Yong Tau Foo and ordered a few more of the dishes.

Interior of the restaurant
As you can see, the interior of the restaurant is quite simple but I like the cleanliness. Well maintained.

Cincau Ice @ RM 2.20
The first drink to arrive was the above Cincau Ice. It was good I should say and was not too sweet. Service here is pretty fast but they keep sending one item at a time which was pretty funny.

Iced Sour Plum @ RM 2.20
This was good...I mean really good!!!

Yong Tau Foo

Fish Balls

Fried Wan Tan & Char Kuih
As for the Yong Tau Foo, we ordered the above items. They include Japan Tofu, Bitter Gourd, Lady's Finger, Wantan, Char Kuih and Fish Balls. This Char Kuih was something new that I am trying here.These items cost RM 1.20 each. They were pretty good. From my previous entries I am sure that you know that I am not lenient with quality but this place truly deserves it. However, the soup was just average. If you gauge the Yong Tau Foo items, then I would rate them 8/10 .

Curry Cheong Fun @ RM 3.00
This dish was okay too but not the best that I have tried. It comes in a single size and cost RM 3.00 . I would rate this 6/10 .

Fried Bean Sprout with Salted Fish @ RM 8.00
The main dishes here come in three sizes i.e. small, medium and large. As it was only two of us, we kept to the small portion size. This dish was nice and the salted fish was of a good quality. It was not the usual small chunks but long strips of the fish was found in the dish. I would rate this dish 8/10 and it was very satisfactory.

Assam Ikan Pari @ RM 10.00
For the above dish, you have a choice between Squid and Stingray and we preferred the stingray for tonight. This is the small portioned dish and it cost RM 10.00 . This was okay and it was really sour. Only setback was that it was a little too oily. The fish was also not too fresh and you get the taste that it's been in the freezer for some time. I would rate this 7/10 .

Black Pepper Chicken @ RM 10.00
This again was another small portioned dish at RM 10.00 . This dish, was excellent. I just loved the way they did it and as you can see, they were lavish with the black pepper. The meat was also good cuts and less bones. I loved the way they fried this. I would surely give this 9/10 .

Us at dinner
On the whole, this restaurant is pretty good. The Yong Tau Foo is of great quality and as for the dishes, it is quite selective and depends on the dish. From what we tried, I would surely recommend the Fried Bean Sprouts with Salted Fish and the Black Pepper Chicken. The total bill for the day came up to RM 46.00 which is reasonable for the number of dishes that we ordered.
