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 nice to chat with too :)

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.

Honestly quite impressed by this place! The place is known for the meatballs & mushroom, and I could see why. The meatball is crunchy on the outside, well seasoned and kinda had an ikan bilis taste; the mushroom was very mushroomy and soft and slippery.

I also liked the veg as it had some crunch. Taupok and taukwa were decent, taukwa wasn’t sour and q soft but not as soft as fulin.

Arrived just before the lunch crowd hit, at about 12.15pm so come early if you don’t like queueing!

The ytf items were quite tasty, and I enjoyed the noodles which went well with the minced meat! Dumplings were decent.

A sinful ytf option, the fried stuff r what I’ll come here for. Think my ideal combi should contain:
- taukwa
- youtiao
- stuffed taukee
- eggplant
- xiaobaicai & kangkong

The taukwa was really good especially when hot. It’s crisp but v soft and fresh on the inside, yums! It’s a different (better) level of softness when compared to other similar kinds of ytf stores (109 circular, orchard ytf), and I was super satisfied with it.

My lunch bud really enjoyed the veg for some reason, but for me the sauce was a bit too goopy, I don’t exactly like my veg drenched in so much starch haha

Another ytf place that my family frequents! The soup is good especially when hot, it’s made from soybeans and ikan bilis (I think), it’s very clear but yums.

My favourite thing here would be the taukee that has a thin layer of fish paste!! It’s so delicious and crispy and savoury :) my family orders 10 pieces and my dad ends up eating 5 bc he loves it, and then we have to order another round of taukee 😂

The fishball is great too, sufficiently salted and has a good bite to it. The tofu is firm outside soft inside. I like the taupok too, it soaks up the soup and goes well with the fish paste. I’m not sure why I like their rice so much but I like that there are distinct individual grains and great in soup.

Another highlight is the sour plum juice! I almost never order drinks as I’m fine with just water, but this is one of the only places I do, because their sour plum juice is really nice. Not too artificial tasting or sweet, it’s a good complement for the meal.

Shoutout to this place for feeding my family for more than 10 years now :)
