Authentic Shop Hoong Toh In Old Town

My mom told me that she has not been to Hoong Toh restaurant for more than 30 years or more now! Oh dear, I must take her here one day, I told myself... Hoong Toh is not a high class restaurant but it was one many years ago. Weddings were held in this shop and the last time I attended the wedding, yes, it was more than 30 years ago. I guess all the old chefs have retired by now and needless to say, the authenticity of the food has also gone with them. With one consolation in mind, perhaps the cooks have passed on their "secret recipe" to the ones who have taken over....

One fine evening I took my mom and "company" here for dinner.... Now she doesn't have to say she has not come by for more than 30 years already!   hahahaaa....
The place has been "refurbished" ... those days, it was not as "bright" as it is today...
What do these painting depict?

When it comes to ordering, we allow the "lady boss" to suggest...
She told us this is their signature dish... "Hoong Toh Meen"
It goes well with the vinegar ... according to individual...
This is a "Must"... 
Yee Wat Hor Fun
(Fish paste with flat noodles)
Good try for the first timers...
Singapore mihun...
I think my handphone camera is not doing some credit here... (lighting problem)
For side orders, this is nice... crispy fried wanton...
And their signature "popiah/lobak"
I cannot remember the name...
It is crispy on the outside and a combination of minced meat and vegetables on the inside...
And now the bill... 
I was a bit taken aback to be splashed with ;RM55 +-
What do you say?

  9. Hello Claire, on average RM11 for each dish, seems ok to me. Good of you to take your mom there so that she can now say she has been there recently!
