Yong Tau Foo is actually fish paste stuffed into items like smooth taufoo, ladies fingers, fried taufoo, chillies or sliced brinjals. You can also find them wrapped in thin soya skin (dumpling) which are then served in a soup or fried. The secret of the Ampang Yong Tau Foo is in the smooth white taufoo and the use good ikan parang (for the fish paste).
