This basic eatery is one of the best places to go for Yong tau foo, a Chinese soup dish with Hakka origins, that can be found commonly in Singapore and Malaysia.
Yong tau foo is basically a clear consommé soup, containing a selection of various food items, like fish balls, crab sticks, cuttlefish, mushroom and minced meat, stuffed bean curd, stuffed bittergourd and more... The different ingredients are sliced into bite-size pieces, cooked briefly in the boiling stock and served either as soup or with the stock in a separate bowl.
Prices are slightly higher than those of the average food-stall but quality and taste are outstanding: SG$ 10 should do the job.
Open Monday to Saturday (closed on Monday and public holidays), 8 am-3 pm
