Taiwan Foods is located in Double 33 Kopitiam, a corner shop lot along Jalan Aziz Ibrahim, with the Queensbay Mall just a stone’s throw away. This place is perfect for a simple quick lunch. The menu is pretty straight forward, serving mostly rice dishes and noodle dishes with several types of braised meat.
Whenever we are near the area, we would drop by for a meal in this stall, which is on the same row with the Kampar Fish Jelly Restaurant.

What is “Kampar Fish Jelly”? Well everyone will presume something sweet. Actually it is Yong Tau Foo, which is mostly found in Kampar, Ipoh and KL. There are a few shops selling Yong Tau Foo in Penang and we usually visit this shop located in Sungai Nibong town (near Queensbay Mall). The clean and brightly lited shop is airy though it is located in middle of a row of shops.
Yong Tau Foo is basically fish paste stuffed into varieties of vegetables and tofu. The fish paste is very fresh and springy.
Fried ingredients are served separately and the rest of the ingredients comes in a bowl of clear and tasty soup. All goes well with choices of white rice, yam rice and even Hakka noodle with minced pork.
Another side dish – Beggar Chicken.
It was an enjoyable Yong Tau Foo lunch with glasses of barley drink (foo chook yee mai).
