Having read so many good reviews so finally tried this out.
Good points: soup got taste, crispy pork lard, fish maw (my favourite)
Down side: pig stomach got smell, veggies not washed, got sand
Dun understand why so popular with long queue
Damage: $16 for 2 ppl

Read so much about this Yong tau foo that opens only in the middle of the night and it's hostile stall owners that I was determined to try it one day. Waited for more than an hour at 1230am before the stall really opened and was ready for customers to pick the ingredients. Many were there early, and you really gotta be fast or you just gotta wait even longer.

What stood out for the YTF in this stall was the wide selection of unusual YTF ingredients. They had mostly internal organs, many fried items like pork belly, some seafood, in addition to the usual ones. Every order came along with a bowl of pig liver soup. Also, the soup base tasted pretty light, doesn't seem to have MSG added. $27 for a pot of soup for 3, without any bee hoon.

Remember to mention:
1. Whether you want Dry bee hoon to go with the soup, how many bowls
2. Your bowls of ingredients to be cooked in the same pot of soup or separate pot
3. Whether to add vegetables, chili padi and Ikan bilis into your pot of soup

Well, the stall owners weren't exactly as hostile as I thought they would be. Just don't obstruct their way and give clear orders and you will be fine!

This is one supper joint you must come fully prepared for. Bring a troop — assign one to "chope" seats, one to stand in line to place your order and another to wrestle alongside you to "kiap" the most prized ingredients on the Yong Tau Foo shelves. It's a battle waiting to happen at the stroke of midnight (note that they sometimes only open at 1am if the owners are still busy prepping), when the signage lights come on and hordes of veracious eaters rush forward. Apart from usual suspects like brinjal, cuttlefish and taupok, Tastemaker Fiona Ting recommends getting the Spam. We hear the pork items are the fastest to fly off the shelves, so zoom in on those as well. Give it about 30 minutes for the owners to prepare your food, and you'll be rewarded with a metal basin brimming with your picks, swimming in an unbelievably flavourful ikan bilis broth that has been boiled for hours. Pro tip: If you can, bring a portable stove (because why not!) to keep your soup bubbling hot throughout your meal!
Avg Price: $10 per person
