Kim Soya Bean -- purportedly Dr. Mahathir's favourite -- is run-of-the-mill fare

Kim Soya Bean -- purportedly Dr Mahathir's favourite -- stands at the junction of Jalan Petaling and Jalan Hang Lekir in KL's Chinatown. The hawker displays a newspaper clipping from Harian Metro which reported that Dr. Mahathir requested for a packet of tau fu fa from this stall when he was hospitalized in the National Heart Institute in 2007. I ate one bowl. The taste is not earth-shaking. Jenny's tau fu fa near the Section 20 Fish Head Noodles stall is better.
