Enjoying Fuzhou food in Yong Peng again ...

I was on leave last Monday to accompany my wifey back to her hometown for the 'sweeping graveyard' or Ching Ming festival at the Nilai Memorial Park. Thus, it was a long weekend for me but then, the weather was really hot and humid in the mainlands. Oh I mentioned mainlands here was because I stayed in SG and JB, which was not too affected by the humidity due to the proximity to sea where we can still enjoyed breezy days, most of the time. Anyway, we survived the heat wave though we had the event in the hot afternoon, in order to make it convenient for everyone.

I drove back from Seremban the day after, and it's been a while since we had Fuzhou dishes in Yong Peng. Thus, we are back to our favourite restaurant in Yong Peng at Hock Swee Hin Restaurant.


My favourite ... is it called 'Cangkuk Manis' ? Need that Sibu food mayor to help ... muuahahaha...
In Cantonese, it is called 'Shi Chai Choy'

Fuzhou Noodles ... put some vinegar onto it and it's delicious!

Chicken in red wine... another favourite food of mine! It's very fragrant!

And, the Fuzhou soup. Somehow, maybe I had better Fuzhou soup in JB where they put crab meat onto it and I felt this one is so-so only.
Hock Swee Hin restaurant is located at 1953, Jalan Besar, 83700 Yong Peng, Johor, Malaysia.

  1. I have been eating all those delicious Fuzhou food in KL for years but had no idea they are Fuzhou origins. I wonder if Fuzhou and Foochow are the same clans with different spellings?

    It is very good that you went to pray and pay respects to the ancestors on the Tomb Sweeping Week. They will bless and help you always. Hey, so we are mainlanders now for living in KL? I must give you a nick name too. Lol

  5. Yes, we call that cangkuk manis or in Chinese, mani cai. Looks good. Can't say the same about the noodles and the ang chao chicken though.

    The soup with crab meat would be something like sharks' fins soup minus the offensive stuff - Maggi has a very nice packet one, crab meat & tung hoon soup.

    1. The cangkuk manis still taste good but the soup is so-so. yeah, perhaps it's nicer if ingredients like shark fins are added. hahaha
