Almost the same…

My daughter loved the yong tau foo in Penang…

…where you can choose whatever you want and they will cut them all up into bite-size pieces and serve them to you in a bowl of clear soup. I think they also do that in KL but at this particular place, you can have it sort of dry like this…

I do not know how much this would cost but what we had in Penang was not really cheap – anytime more than RM10.00 a bowl.

In Sibu, they do it differently. What they have are sets with different combinations and you will choose which one you like. This one, the most expensive of the lot, costs RM8.50 a bowl…

…at Sing Long Cafe, a coffee shop at the Fortune Commercial Centre (behind the Rejang Medical Centre).

There are other cheaper choices, of course, and the cheapest is this bowl of sui jiao (meat dumplings) soup…

…which only costs RM4.00 a bowl. No doubt it is more expensive than the usual bowl of pain sip/kiaw/wantan soup which comes at only RM2.20 a bowl but these dumplings have a lot more meat inside – value for money, that’s for sure.

Well, like what I said in my reply to one of the comments in a post a few days ago, we may have the same things but they may be a bit different in their own ways. The most important thing is that they taste good and on that, I am sure, you will all agree.
