FOOD HUNT IN YONG PENG, JOHOR (1)

This is an adhoc food hunt in Yong Peng, Johor since we decided not to drive to Batu Pahat which is quite a distance from Melaka. So, what is this small town famous for?

We drove around and find that there are a lot of shops selling fish balls . We were made known by some locals that fu zhou food is popular here.

Our first stop... 
if you can read chinese, then you'll know the name of this stall
assorted type of fishballs in a bowl of clear soup...bouncy and tasty
with a plate of dried wantan noodles top with minced meat... springy and yummy
TOTAL = RM4 for the soup + noodles

********
2nd stop  - Anthony Fish Ball
Upon entering this shop, we were shocked to find flies sitting on greasy tables. Instead of leaving, we decided to order a bowl of mix fishballs.
my bowl.... clear soup but soggy fish balls

TOTAL: RM20 including a plate of braised chicken feet
 (no photo taken cos' this dish (+ fish balls) disappointed us)

*********
3rd stop - Restoran Or Hwu
from Anthony Fish Ball, cross the main road and you'll see this eatery at the right hand corner. Specializes in fu zhou dishes and it was packed with only 2 tables left unoccupied. 

Once seated, a friendly aunty came to our table and I asked for kompia. She told me they don't sell this biscuit but I can buy it in a nearby shop selling fu zhou biscuits and other local stuff.  (happy mood).

Don't know what to order and upon recommendation by the aunty, we opted for :-
Fried Fuzhou Meat Ball (RM8)
My mom commented that it was sweet and not fragrant unlike the way she prepare it in Hokkien style.  We certainly agree with her.
Fried Hok Chew/Fuzhou Fat Noodles with Seafood (RM10)
Tasted similiar to Hokkien noodles, we enjoyed this plate of slurpy dark noodles filled with wok hei. 

 We ran out of eating mood after waiting for 30 mins since our remaining order  i.e Fu Zhou/Red Rice Wine Chicken and Stir Fried Choy Sum still yet to arrive. Thus, we cancelled the two dishes and left after paying.
