Chinese Fried Crullers/ Yu Tiao @ Jln Tan Yew Lai


In the late afternoon, if you feel like having some snacks, this maybe one of the place that you can visit. It begins with a stall by the road side and has been operating for years. During April 2008, the vendor moves to a corner lot of a singles story house, from a no name stall to a shop named as
"Miss You"

Miss You @ Jalan Tan Yew Lai

You tiao or yao char gwai , in English known as Chinese crullers, is a long, golden brown deep fried strip of dough. The crispness of the chinese crullers are pleasingly firm and fresh.

Some history of you tiao (information based on Wikipedia):
The Cantonese name yàuhjagwái literally means "oil-fried ghost" and, according to folklore, is an act of protest against Song Dynasty official Qin Hui, who is said to have orchestrated the plot to frame the general Yue Fei, an icon of patriotism in Chinese Culture. It is said that the food, originally taking the form of two deep-fried human-shaped dough but later evolved two doughs joining in the middle, represents Qin Hui and his wife, both having a hand in collaborating with the enemy to bring about the great general's demise. Thus the youtiao is deep fried and eaten as if done to the traitorous couple. In keeping with the legend, youtiao are often made as two foot-long rolls of dough joined along the middle, with one roll representing the husband and the other the wife.

One of my favorite food at "Miss You", is their economic fried vermicelli. Actually, it is not the fried vermicelli that is special, it is their sambal that I fancy! Somehow, the vendor sometimes is quite stingy with the portion of sambal they serve. You can try to ask for more, and the "more" they give is just so little.

Besides
chinese crullers and economic fried vermicelli/noodles, they have fish balls,nasi lemak, curry puffs and also 8-10 types of dessert. This place is always crowded in the late afternoon, if you happen to be in Old Klang Road, do stop by to snack!
