I Love Yoo Fried Naan Gao
Post by Chiefeater Khor Hui Min
After my work meeting ended, I went down to the lower ground floor of The Starling at Damansara Uptown. I noticed that 'I Love Yoo!', the kiosk selling yootiao, porridge and soya bean milk was selling fried nian gao. But it was RM3.60 per piece. Inflation or what. So, I bought one to try. The nian gao reminds me of the old school taste of the one I used to eat from a truck in Penang. Light crispy batter on the outside. Inside is soft, not hard and dry. And not greasy at all. Ho chiak, but I probably won't buy it again because of the price.
What is Fried Nian Gao
Fried Nian Gao, also known as "fried Chinese New Year cake," is a popular Chinese snack made from glutinous rice flour and brown sugar. It is typically cut into small pieces, coated in egg wash and flour, and then deep-fried until crispy.
In Chinese culture, nian gao (年糕) symbolizes prosperity, as the word "nian" sounds like the word for "year" and the word "gao" sounds like the word for "high" or "tall," suggesting the hope for growth and progress in the coming year. Fried nian gao is particularly popular during the Chinese New Year period, when families gather to celebrate and exchange gifts.
I Love Yoo is halal certified.
