I Love Yoo!

One set of hot soy milk with deep fried "you tiao" (chinese cruller) - MYR4.60 and one bowl of tofufa "kosong" (without any syrup) - MYR3.30 to line the empty stomach before a main meal, shared by 3 persons. Please pardon the spilled soymilk on the tray.

I love yoo - Nice name  but totally different words in Chinese - the phrase "lo yao gui gui (老友鬼鬼)" - means very close buddies but the chinese characters used here 老油鬼鬼 means "old youtiao" because you tiao in Cantonese is 油炸鬼 (deep fried ghost in oil) so the name of the shop is a clever play on chinese words with the same sound (homonym).

Sometimes the queue can get quite long

  7. You mean the servings were really huge, enough to be shared by three?

    Personally, I'm not into these franchise places - not that they're not nice or what but they're grossly overpriced. Tried one "branded" tofu fua here - RM3.50 for a small bowl...nothing great, same as any other I can get from the local makers...at RM1 only.

    1. Not huge at all. We just eat as snack so eat a little each only. Vety true, price is high because it is located in shopping malls.
