Nostalgic Madras Lane Petaling Street Curry Noodles and Yong Tau Foo

The Madras Lane foodstalls have been around for ages but have not lost its lustre albeit some of it some may venture. It still enjoys a steady stream of customers some intentional while others spur of the moment decisions. You can enter from the Pak Peng Building located right in the middle of the venerable Petaling Street.
But nowadays not many visit Petaling Street unless they have guests that wanted to get knock-offs, or you go there out of sentimentalism or nostalgia. It is a place I rather not go due to the heat and crowd. It is the changing in the face of time. Referring to the street itself, alot of the stalls are manned by foreigners which is unthinkable since this is Chinatown. But really there is nothing Chinese about it except for its Chinesey arches on both ends and the many local Chinese that visits it out of habit or live around the area.
The curry noodles has all the right ingredients as evident by the pictures. It looks good in colour and arrabgement but falls short on taste. It's above average but its has fallen short as I heard that it was very good i.e. in times past.
But the YTF is something else. The winner here. The fish paste was solid, taste as it should and obviously has a lot of good fish in it. The vegetables used as a carrier for the fish paste was fresh and I did enjoyed it very much.

I was let down by the curry mee too. The YTF and CCF fared much better, thankfully.
Though the crowd was NOT thin by any means.
