Pork Ball Noodles at Yong Tau Foo Ah Choon 美乐酿豆腐 in Taman Melodies, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

This pork ball noodles is the speciality at Yong Tau Foo Ah Choon 亞春 美乐酿豆腐.

Our RM5 set come with a bowl of smooth and soft snowy white kway teow which was barely visible under the blanket of thick, delicious, slightly sweet, minced pork gravy. The set come with two large pieces of savoury, rosy hued 5-spice pork 五香肉片.

These were accompanied by a bowl of tasty soup and three chunky pieces of Ah Choon's 亞春 famous pork balls.

The homemade pork balls were springy 爽口弹牙 and almost like good fish balls in texture and bite. Only difference was the distinct sweet flavour of fresh pork. Ah Choon's tasty pork balls were neither fatty nor oily.

The boss Ah Choon 亞春 has been selling his famous pork ball noodles and yong tau foo for nearly twenty years. Everything is self made by hand with fresh ingredients, so quality is tops but quantity and variety is not huge. 

Take a look at some of the delicious yong tau foo available at Ah Choon's 美乐酿豆腐. I shall be coming back for these at my next visit :)

Oh, I must mention Ah Choon's chili sauce.

Ah Choon's chili sauce may look ordinary but it is stingily hot and tangy in a delightful way. I love it :)

Ah Choon's 亞春 pork ball noodles is definitely a must try.

  1. Hi, you take excellent pictures. This shop is one of the best in JB.

    Have a nice weekend.

    1. Yes Amelia, the pork ball noodles here is really special. And yes, I still have a long, long way to go in my photography.

  2. Will go check this place out tomorrow.

  3. the pork ball noodles are definitely special, and tasty!, however the same cant be said of the yong tau foo. the pieces are alright, but lacking that X factor that make you feel like grabbing a few more pieces to top up. the soup is disappointing, totally lacking in the Umami department, which to me is very important for a good yong tau foo. in comparison, the place you reviewed in perling had an umami soup, but was lacking when it came to the yong tau foo pieces albeit having a huge variety.

  4. ah- almost forgot. the chilli is spicy, but it does not complement the yong tau foo or the pork balls well. i have seen chilli much better executed at other ytf places.

  5. Good yong tau foo and noodles and fair price.


I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
