Yong Tau Foo (#02-87)

10 Reviews

Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre has reopened! And I’m glad this stall has reopened too as it’s run by two elderly ladies. I was afraid they would retire but am truly glad they didn’t. They have an assortment of fried yong tau foo to complement their well fried mee/kueh teow/bee hoon and this very tasty old school laksa. Each yong tau foo is freshly made and fried to perfection. The laksa curry is just spicy enough enough for those who prefer it less spicy and to those who love it more spicy just add their chilli sauce. Others who prefer the fried mee etc order it with addition of the yong tau foo or just plain which is good too. Warning - food may be sold out by late morning. Am certain when they close for the week. Likely Mondays.


$3 a bowl for 6pcs + kway tiao or 8pcs without carbs

Usually v long Q so best time to have it is on weekdays non peak hours


Yong tau foo with bee hoon and noodle

(from Xiu Ji Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Fu)


6pcs with noodle is $3, add ikan bilis is $0.50, fish cake is $0.80. Super long Q but the YTF are handmade, worth queuing!

At any hawker centre, my advice is to keep an eye on where the older folks queue because chances are, the dishes from those stalls are tastier. That’s how I found this “chap chye png” in the vast, sprawling space of Chinatown Complex Food Centre on Smith Street today.
I had noticed that “Ye Ji Cooked Food” (#02-020) commanded a never-ending but fast-moving line in front of their stall made up exclusively of individuals aged 60 and above. Immediately, I decided to join them.
The spread of dishes at “Ye Ji” was wide and since the hawker in charge of the cooking seemed to do it in small batches, I had a feeling their food would taste hotter and fresher than most. Something older folks tend to be fussy about.
My order of rice with some “yong tau fu” items, onion omelette and stirfried kailan flowers came to only $5. More importantly, everything on the plate was delicious. There’s a comforting homecooked-by-mum taste and yet at the same time, execution was on point. Take for example my vegetables. They were stirfried to optimal crispness and so flavourful.
I suspect this stall sells out very quickly so if you plan on trying the food here, it’s best to drop by earlier like just before noon.

Cheap yong tay foo hand made daily and cost only $3!!soup is delicious and there are few other choices to add on like fishcake,bittergourd,bringals and mini abalone. When added with chilli,the simple beehoon just taste so good!!👍

The perfect meal. Never thought chicken could be this succulent, and at just $7 for a half chicken?! The YTF was superb, such bouncy fish paste and totally loved the ikan bilis, can't imagine we've never eaten YTF this way before!

Who would have thought that Ikan bilis was the secret to creating a truly out standing bowl of Yong tau foo. Ikan bilis soup stock?! Light yet flavorful, salty from the fish and not the MSG. Damn son this is yummy shit

By e looks was not appealing but tasted great. One of the best yong tau foo. Queue was long but serving was quite fast. Price at $3 a bowl.
