A popular spot for quick, cheap and satisfying lunch among the blue collars, this stall coined as "Dai Shu Kiok" literally translated as Big Tree Foot, is located behind Tuck Kee Restaurant in Pasir Pinji.
Not to be confused with THE other stall (now a shop) at Jalan Prince, Pasir Pinji (click HERE for my previous take on those yummy fried goodies), this stall has a following of its own, normally crowded during lunch hour, although the hygiene factor of dining under this shack is slightly compromised. But for a taste of good food, throw your caution to the wind for once. =P
Recently, a coffee shop has opened next to this shack, with a stall selling the same stuff. Though having your meals inside the shoplot with cooling fans is tempting, I was not sure the authenticity of the yong tau foo, thus, ended up trusting my instinct and paying this same stall a visit. (Would love to hear what you think of the new stall, Jason. Hehe)Mixed Fruit Ice (RM3.50)
The 'Chap Guo Ping' (Mixed Fruit Ice) came in a HUGE jug, enough for sharing. With lots of fruit bits added, and lychee syrup poured liberately over the shaved ice, this is heaven-sent on a hot, sunny day.Low Shu Fun (Rice Noodles) with Dry Curry
You can order laksa, or other types of noodles to go with their stuffed fish paste (yong tau foo), OR you can just pick your pieces and eat them on their own. (Good when you're in a rush, and you do not wish to wait for the noodles)
The fried variety got my vote, as I've always have a strange bias for fried stuff. The fish paste used was homemade, and the pieces are not miniature in size, but rather stuffed to the brim. Highly recommended is the Fried Stuffed Sar Kok (Turnip). But really, go for anything ... they're all good.
Watch out for the lunch crowd, as you may have to queue up and brace the wait. Parking may be a hindrance, as the allocated parking spots are rather limited, forcing most to double park by the roadside.
Location : Behind Tuck Kee Restaurant, which is located at Jalan Tokong, in Pasir Pinji area. Nearby there is also a good 'dai chow' restaurant named Wong Kok.
