Ipoh have been long regarded as the best place to have Tau Fu Fa (Bean Curd) and several other famous dishes. Woong Kee Tau Fu Fah happen to be 1 of the longest in the business and have been Ipohans’ favourite since.
Tau Fu Fa is a Chinese snack made with very soft tofu. It is also referred to as tofu pudding and soybean pudding.
In Malaysia, it is more commonly known by its names tau hua or tau huay in Hokkien, or by the Cantonese name (tau fu fa), with the Cantonese variation being more common in Malaysia.
It is usually served either with a clear sweet syrup alone, with ginkgo seeds suspended in the syrup, or in a sugar syrup infused with pandan. Alternatively, it can also be served with palm-syrup (Gula Melaka). You can read more about its origin at Wikipedia.
Woong Kee Tau Fu Fah
The Original Woong Kee Tau Fu Fah is located at Jalan Ali Pitcha, where most of the famous eateries situated. But the shop is rather easy to spot as it’s usually filled with long queue of people.
They have another branch that’s located at Desa Bercham which you can give it a try if you’re nearer to that area.
Upon your turn in the queue, the lady serving will ask which variations that you want.
And she will expertly get it done for you under a minute and your order is ready!
Woong Kee Tau Fu Fah Variations
They served 3-variations of flavour, which is Peanut & Sesame combination, or Honey Grass Jelly as well as the Red Bean. People usually go for the red bean ones as that’s the most famous. I didn’t get to try it during my visit as it was sold out.
They also sell soy bean drinks which you can order to go along with your tau fu fa.
This variation of Peanut & Sesame is very aromatic and it’s not too sweet at all. The bean curd is unbelievably silky smooth as it slides down your throat with no obstacles at all. You literally feel like eating a soft jelly, almost no need to chew.
The Honey Grass Jelly is also a good combination to try as it was cooling and have the dessert feeling to it.
