Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
I went to yum yum at Little Yum Yum and found it YummY!
Yum Yum, originating from Ipoh, Malaysia, serves a fusion of Nyonya, Thai and Vietnamese Food. Little Yum Yum is their branch in Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, but it is not so little - on the menu is a very wide spread of dishes to choose from.

Yum Yum Pandan Chicken

A good start off dish. The chicken was tender for easy bites. Nicely seasoned without being to spicy, the pandan infused taste exudes out onto our palate to work up our appetite.

Yum Yum Special Fried Tofu with Thai Plum Sauce

Deep fried first, the tofu had a nice crispy skin with a soft inside. Always one of my favorites for its simple pureness. The Thai sauce, without being too strong added that little tinge of flavor to the tofu.

Lady's Finger with Dried Prawn Chilli

Another simple dish, but the dried prawn chilli made all the difference to the lightly fried lady's fingers. I would have preferred it even simpler, just boiled and eaten with sambal belacan.

Stir Fried Paku

The humble paku (fiddle-head fern), once a rural dish eaten in the kampungs is now making its way to up-market establishments. Here, its crunchiness was spiced up by the onions, chilli and dried prawns.

Steamed Tilapia
Another once lowly dish from the padi fields, the tilapia is fast gaining a foothold too. Nicely steamed here with a sauce of chillied sour-sweet pounded dried prawns. Marvelous!

Nyonya Gulai Tumis Pomfret

Firstly, my apologies for the eaten look, its the new trend in food blogging. No? Ok, seriously sometimes amateurs food bloggers like me have difficulty taking good photos, people just can't wait to eat. Perhaps the food is too good, just like this one!

Creamy Basil Butter Chicken

This was my favorite among the lot. A real fusion with creaminess greasing my pallate while biting the crunchiness of the chicken which had been pre-deep fried with a thin layer of batter. The slices of large onions and bottle beans too! Hoo Wee!

Cincau Bandung

Okay, not everything can be perfect. This dessert/drink was too diluted without adequate milk - and they did not use evaporated milk so that little saltiness was not there! The cincau (grass jelly) was cut into to big cubes making it hard to bite. I would have preferred cincau strips; slurpy and soft.

Little Yum Yum, a truely fusion place for a good experience of South-eat Asian food. Delectable and delightful. And it has so much more - go to their FB page and see for yourself!
