Updated 20 September 2009: This place is closed. Owner opened a corner coffee shop with same name round the corner which is next to Friends Cafe.
I tell you, Kepong seems to be packed with eateries now. Errrmmm what I meant was the "new" Kepong area around Carrefour and Jusco where there were a surge of developments. I told my mom that if they were to try one outlet a day, I doubt they can cover them all in a year's time hehehe...
This place was discovered last weekend whilst looking for a place for breakie. I remember patronising Michel Cafe when they were located many years ago in Desa Business Complex. We loved their nasi lemak but never been back since they sifted. Seems like they are now operating along Jalan Metro Perdana 3 (same row as the Hong Kong Dessert place) with not one eatery BUT three at different shoplots!!! There's the cafe, then a place that sells mixed rice which looked like a cafe instead of kopitiam and lastly this Restoran Mi Chel Yong Tau Foo towards the end of the road.
I shared with my boiboi this bowl of kon lou hor fun (flat rice noodles dry style RM4.00) that came with a bowl of parang fishballs. I liked the slippery smooth hor fun and the soy sauce concoction was nice. My boiboi asked for more so I literally had about 1/3 bowl of it only, sighhh... The fishballs are not of the bouncy kind which is good as it doesn't contain borax. They're fresh with a bite to them. The clear broth was tasty and I didn't have the MSG after effect that morning.
My mom choose these yong tau foo pieces at the counter up front. Each piece costed 90 sens which are right about the price these days. I loved the way how they coiled up a few strands of long beans and stuff the fish meat into the rounds. Lots of filling there.
The filling of the stuffed white tofu have a little something extra in there that made it rather tasty. Don't think it's salted fish but could be octopus. Didn't managed to ask cos all the staff were foreigners which make it a bit tough when it came to ordering drinks. The food have picture menus heh :p
Overall this place is not too bad when the place is bright and clean ala cafe style. The inner portion of the restaurant is air-conditioned. Food wise, I don't mind going again.
