Food Review: Kota Damansara【Ru Di Fook 如狄福】Of Chinese street food with creative local infusion



Ru Di Fook @ Kota Damansara  itself is smart innovation of local food with a contemporary touch. Not only that, every food itself vow you a great gastronomy journey. For the reason the bossess here embrace on the value "能吃的是福” it's a blessing to eat.



Before we venture into the delectable list of food here. The interior of the restaurant is insta-worthy and of  simplistic vintage touch.  You can choose to eat under natural light or a normal seat.






And meanwhile , I was impressed with the intricate arrangement of their cutleries. Each of the seat comes with an empty class, that lid of soy sauce. Not only that all the condiments like soy sauce,.....are carefully arranged in their containers. 




We started by trying their flower tea. I love how special it taste. The bosses served us Laici Chinese Tea, Mint Tea and a chinese tea. I love both Laici for it's subtle sweet and  and Mint tea for it's refreshingness.

Ru Di Fook's signature


Small Bowls 小碗 | Dry
Yat Hao Fook Sai Sai Yong 
一口福细细蓉  RM3.80

5 full spoons of al-dente springy noodle with 1 dumpling pair with clear soup. 

The concept of serving the little amount resemble the thai Boat Noodle. I personally feel like it is so worthy and you cant miss it! For it's noodle is homemade by a Local Sifu using Duck Egg beaten to the firm and extra-ordinary al-dente texture. 


Initially, I imagine it is only a Full Spoon portion of noodle when it is said to resemble boat noodle. Nope, as much as it is the mini version of it, the noodle can last me 5-6 spoons before it is emptied. 

Dumpling prawn filling, dried scallop smashed into lump to invite the smooth texture of chewing it. It is not the ordinary wantan dumpling that you find outside with only minced pork inside. 



Small Bowls 小碗 | Soup
Yat Hao Fook Sai Sai Yong 
一口福细细蓉  RM3.80

Both the noodle here is a great hit here you cannot not trying. The soup here is more saltier than the dry wantan mee. If you prefer to eat something lighter the first one suit your taste bud. Unlike the normal clear soup in wan tan mee, the soup is here is carefully boiled with dry scallops and No MSG. You wont can immediately differentiate the pleaseant sweet taste from the soup. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

When China meets Malaysian. The satay chicken and satay dressing has wowed you. and the combination of the Malaysian rojak and a ramen egg.

Thick consistency of the gravy inspired by Japanese curry Rice but taste like Malaysian laksa with the spiciness removed. The flavourful gravy complement the dishes as well as the crab.
