Rong Xing Yong Tau Foo, Tanjong Pagar

Yong Tau Foo

That bowl may look a bit puzzling, but it was basically the dry version of yong tau foo. I got it from a stall at Tanjong Pagar Plaza (6 Tanjong Pagar Road #02-04). A quick glance at some of the stuffed tofu and eggplant on display suggested that it was indeed better than some of the no-name shops at random food courts around Singapore. But when I sat down to eat it, I couldn't really taste much of a difference, aside from the soup being really salty. Well, I'm not exactly a pro at this stuff. Besides, this local dish is one where you select your own items (kinda like a salad bar), so maybe I just picked the wrong things. Oh well.

Go try the Yong Tau Foo at Lucky Plaza Level 5 or 6. The foodstall is not located in a foodcourt but a shop unit on its own.

Pick more of the deep-fried meatballs. It's their specialty.

Note the fried sesame seeds toppings that you don't usually see in other Yong Tau Foo outlets. It adds a special aroma to the dish.

Finally, when you have finished your food, scoop some of the residue chilli sauce from your main bowl into your soup and feel the kick.

you did pick the wrong things...go back again and ask for the ikan bilis which is really the wicked ingredient!

Saw this online awhile ago. The reviewer said that the queue is pretty long so I guess it's not so suitable if one is in a rush during the lunch hour unless you go early.
