Ipoh Funny Mountain Tau Foo Fah


Whether it's soy bean custard or soy bean pudding, I still like to call it Tau Foo Fah! And I like my TFF (notice that I am too lazy to type the full name) hawt and funny. That is why I have to go to Funny Mountain for my fix of TFF whenever I'm in Ipoh. Ask me for my recommendation on TFF, and I'll direct you to this funny place which is just diagonally opposite the infamous previous Foh San Dim Sum outlet.

I have no idea why they had named it Funny Mountain. Maybe just a catchy name or the soy beans come from a mountain with a funny name. Right after we had our satisfying Ipoh Shredded Chicken Hor Fun breakfast at Lok Wee Kui, I asked my sister to take Huai Bin to this outlet. Lucky it was opened on the 3rd day of CNY.

If you're lazy to wait in line and you don't want to park your car, drive-thru is possible. They have a guy running to your car to get your orders and then you can sip your soya bean and eat tau foo fah in the comfort of your car with the air-conditioning on. How cool is that?




So far, this is the best TFF ever. The TFF is smooth, as smooth as silk or slippery smooth. I would say it's even smoother than the smoothest chocolate! Lol... The ones I had in KL is nowhere near this and I assure you that it's so smooth, you'll like your girlfriend to consume this everyday hoping her skin will be like this after awhile. Oops, did I just make any boyfriend forcing their girlfriend to start eating TFF?!!

They do have soy bean milk and cincau as well. But IMHO, the soy bean milk is too sweet for my liking. You might want to ask them to reduce the sugar syrup if you prefer it less sweet. I only come for the TFF.




That morning, there was already a long queue forming in front of the shop. At only RM0.80 a bowl, I think it's a pretty good deal. If I was not full after a hearty breakfast, I would have easily eaten 3 bowls of that! Don't worry if you cannot find a parking, as they offer drive-thru services. There'll be a person running to the car, taking orders and delivering them without you having to come out of the vehicle. How cool is that?!! Operation hours is from 10.00am to 7.30pm.

Try it to believe it. The TFF is really [ insert all the yummylicious adjectives you want]....

Right Huai Bin?!!

You must have been a lot of that over the years - sking so fair, so smooth like TFF. LOL!!! When I was in Spore in the early 70s, I would eat out every day and have TFF from a nearby stall for dessert...and I actually noticed myself getting fairer!!!

Great TFF @ Funny Mountain indeed.

HB: Yep. Cheers.

Cindy: Oh.. maybe I should ask Funny Mountain to open a franchise there!

Generally, I think Ipoh's TFF is outstanding due to local water quality that is fortified with rich minerals of surrounding limehills.

Thanks for highlighting Ipoh's forte.

You do not need cosmetics and whatever beauty products...just eat more TFF!. It is so affordable at 80 cents per bowl.
