Ngoh heong (literally “five spices”) is a much-loved hawker snack of fried items. It has its roots from the Hokkien and Teochew dialect groups.
Traditionally, ngoh heong consisted of four classic items—meat roll (popularly known as “ngoh heong”), liver roll, pink sausage and egg slice. Later, prawn fritters were also added. Now, most hawkers include supplied items like tau kwa (firm beancurd), fish ball, and century egg to extend their range.

And the place that put Semenyih on the food map is an un-named stall located near the Semenyih field (beside the Sekolah Kebangsaan China Semenyih) which is referred to by locals as “Malek Tauhu”. We just call it the ‘Semenyih cucur udang’ place.
They also sell plain fried tauhu pieces, which explains the name, “Malek Tauhu”. The cucur udang are tasty, light and fluffy, with sufficient air pockets inside to soak up the sweet and tangy chili sauce. The fresh prawn (with shell) tops the cucur and chives are added to enhance the taste. This contrasts with the plain taufoo which are dense and rather tasteless. Cucumber slices are added to the order which serve to soothe the taste buds of those who can’t take the pungency of the chilies.
