We are always on the lookout for new breakfast options and today, we decided to try out Xiu Ji Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Foo (#02-88) at Chinatown Complex Food Centre as we saw a decent queue forming in front of the stall. Soon, we found out why!

The stall's signature dish is a $3 bowl of Yong Tau Foo! Seriously where else can you find yong Tau foo priced at $3 these days, what more in the CBD area! 😱 However, the stall differs from most yong tau foo stalls in that you are not really able to choose your ζ–™! Just tell the auntie what noodle you want and whether you want your noodles dry/soup and the other ingredients are standard (6 items without noodles or 4 items with noodles). You can add on selected items by paying a little more, but the basic bowl was more than sufficient for us.

Amongst the ingredients, we thought the fishball was the clear winner as the fishball had a strong fish flavour and it was bouncy as well! 😁

☺️πŸ”₯ Hor Fun for lunch in Chinatown (S$5). Comes with prawns, sliced fish, chicken. Portion was too big for me and can be shared by 2 small eaters. Overall a decent plate of hor fun.

πŸ˜„ Cheap and tasty S$0.70 youtiao and butterfly fritter in Chinatown.

There's another stall (Tai Wah Cooked Food 02-115) also selling these kind of fried fritters, but sold out when I got there so bought from this stall instead.

These fried snacks goes great with a cup of hot coffee. One of my favourite snacks to get at the hawker centre.

We enjoyed the spinach soup at Chinatown Complex Food Centre (θ€ε‘³ι“θ‹‹θœζ±€) and we are back to get it again to meet our veggie quota for the day! This time, however, we decided to get the spinach soup with fish for a change and we added our favourite 可口青. Serving size was decent but the only issue was that the batang fish was really fishy πŸ˜‘ suggest to stick with the yong Tau foo or just the plain spinach soup because the fish was really not great.

After my meal, ordered freshly brewed Kopi C Siew Dai (S$1.60) from Lim's Cafe (Stall #02-31). They use a coffee machine so the taste is pretty consistent. Cafe style coffee on a budget in a hawker centre.

🀩 Delicious seafood soup with rice (S$5). Value for money and generous portion. Seems like most of their customers are the elderly.

The seafood soup contains a few fresh prawns, sliced fish, clams, minced pork, bitter gourd, vege, seaweed. Delicious flavourful soup without feeling thirsty after. I have eaten this a few times. Recommended πŸ‘.
