Yong tau foo is a Hakka Chinese cuisine consisting primarily of tofu filled with ground meat mixture or fish paste. The dish is extremely popular in Malaysia. It can be served in soup or dry with a sweet bean sauce.
Yong tau foo as Chinese culture, it gathered the family together while doing it. It’s a fantastic bonding experience that gets the whole family involved from beginning to end. But now as the modern fast-paced world doesn’t always accommodate for meals that take a good few hours to make involving the whole family.
Yong tau foo has two versions, the original version is included pork paste which makes it a non-Halal. The other version is using the other paste to makes it Muslim-friendly.
The dish is eaten with chopsticks and a soup spoon and can be eaten by itself or served with a bowl of steamed rice, noodles or rice vermicelli. Another variation of this dish would be to serve it with laksa gravy or curry sauce.
