If Thais have tom yum then Malaysians have ampang?

Bagus Lamian
One word that gives a thousand meanings when you are at Bagus La Mian. Yes you've read that right. At Bagus La Mian you can not just say no to noodles. Why? Let me give you three points. First, they let you choose between five different soup namely clear soup, tom yum, ampang, laksa and hakka that goes with your Yong Tau Fu. Second, you get to eat it dry or with soup! Third, they serve the soup and the fried items in two different bowls so that you won't get a soggy piece of fried tau fu! How cool is that right? Small things like these do matter mind you.

Now let me give you some few details in case you are confused of which broth to choose. Clear Soup is actually my favorite and this is cooked using soy beans and fried anchovies to bring out the umami of the dish. Tom yum is actually a Thai soup that has a distinctly hot and sour flavors with fragrant spices and herbs generously used in the broth. If Thais have tom yum then Malaysians have ampang. Ampang is actually a place in Kuala Lumpur that is famous for their Yong Tau Fu. Laksa is a popular spicy broth either based on rich and spicy curry coconut milk or based on sour asam (tamarind). Lastly, Hakka concentrates on bringing out the proteinous flavor of the dish and this has a thick sweet and sour sauce with a hint of ginger.

Did you know that La Mian is a type of handmade noodle that is made by twisting, stretching and folding the dough into strands using the weight of the dough? This technique originated in China and usually the length and thickness of the strands depends on the number of times the dough is folded.

And let us not forget the highlight - Yong Tau Fu. Yong tau foo is eaten in numerous ways either dry with a sauce or served as a soup dish. This is basically a tofu that has been stuffed with either a ground meat mixture or fish paste. This cubes are definitely worth it. They even concentrate on the texture for you to have that perfect bite!

 Aside from the Yong Tau Fu, they offer different side dishes.
