This was pretty yummy! I liked the smooth and chewy cheecheongfun, the sauce was not bad too. I did ask for less sauce, since I don't really like my food drenched in sauce. Got 5 pieces - an eggplant, a stuffed tofu (both were yums), a meatball-like thing (don't get this, I thought it was a meatball but its much more floury and not nice), and 2 bunches of spinach. This stall does see a semi-long queue at certain timings, and some items sell out quickly! It's a good option for cbd lunch :)

This is my favourite place for yong tau foo - their fish paste is flavourful, soup is light but tasty, and the ikan bilis is crisp. My favourite component is the stuffed taukee! I usually get kway teow, which is slurpy and lightly drizzled with sesame oil. We added on fried eggplant, which is oily but sinfully good. The queue gets pretty long even at 7.30am, which is a testament to how delicious it is :)

Lao Huang is one of my favourite yong tau fu stalls! This time, we came early enough, so we managed to get the popular ingredients. I particularly like the fried taukwa and meatball. The taupok (which soaks up the soup) is a good option to have as well! The minced-meat noodles is my default order, as I enjoy the combination of the sauce with the tasty minced meat and slightly springy noodles. Crunchy (but not raw-tasting) beansprouts are added too :)

This stall has really long queues, but it moves pretty quickly. While the ingredients are decent (I felt that the tofu was the nicest out of everything), we don’t really get the hype. I did find the soup rather flavourful, but I doubt I’ll be heading back, given that there are better ytf stalls in Chinatown.

I’ve reviewed this before, and it’s one of my favourite places to get YTF! We got other ingredients like the chillies (which my lunch buddy loves) and the eggplant, which is delicious but not too oily. The taukee, soup and their sour plum juice is a big draw as well. Their YTF is clean tasting, but still satisfying :)

The noodles weren’t soggy even though it was a takeaway meal; I like that it was like a flat noodle but thinner than meepok, and didn’t have a very strong alkaline taste. The taukwa was my favourite, as the skin was chewy and the insides soft. The taupok was nice too! The fishball was okay; taukee slightly too salty and the tofu was midway between firm and soft but I didn’t like the meat on top. Koo kee is a slightly above average place for ytf, and it is pretty convenient with many outlets.

There’s 5 different styles of ytf (soup, hakka, tomyum, laksa and ampang) here, and I picked hakka, where a savoury minced chicken sauce is poured over the ytf items. The kwayteow with sauce was decent. I liked the freshly fried eggplant and taukwa, which were crisp and flavourful. Not a bad place for ytf, but not outstanding either.

Lao Huang is one of my favourite ytf stores in sg! They sell a variety of items that you pick yourself, my all-time favourites are the fried taukwa & meatball (which was sold out already). In pic: fried taukee, fried dumpling, eggplant & baicai. They use a well-seasoned meat paste as stuffing which I like a lot! I feel like noodle standards have fallen over the years. Nevertheless, I still enjoy the minced meat noodles, which are tossed in a light sauce with blanched beansprouts at the bottom. Their soup is pretty light and tasty too, no MSG! Go early (before 12) because they sell out pretty quickly. Also, the uncle is very friendly :)

We ordered by letting them know how many pax we were ordering for, and for our set for two we got: 2 eggplants, 2 silken tofu, 2 fried taukwa, 2 fishballs, 2 taukee, 2 fried wanton, 2 bitter gourds, 2 okra, 1 quail egg, 1 taupok and a heap of kangkong.

My favourite thing was the SAUCE. A very satisfying sweet-savoury sauce that wasn’t too starchy but not watery. I don’t usually like sauces over ytfs because they are usually the red sweet sauce which I’m not a big fan of. But this was really good! The fragrance of the garlic also came through. Perfect with the rice, which is $0.50 per bowl.

As for the items, I liked the silken tofu, the eggplant and the taukee. The taukee is really salty tho, so make sure to drench it in sauce and eat with rice. Enjoyed the kangkong as well. Portions are generous here!

The ingredients were all rather fresh and tasty, and I liked the handmade fishballs and meatball best! The soup was also very light and clean-tasting. My family returned for another meal a week after!

Quite a nice bowl of yongtaufoo, ingredients were fresh and soup light but tasty. The bowl of noodles reminded me a little of xiu ji ikan bilis ytf, but this one has veg and the ikan bilis is not crisp. A rather decent bowl with a manageable queue (about 10 mins at 1.30pm).

A rather decent bowl of yongtaufoo. Slightly above average (compared to the standard foodcourt ytfs). I would say that this is the baseline for ‘specialty’ ytf stores that serve great ytf. The standout item here was the eggplant! Also, portions are huge, with lots of ingredients given.
