Traditional Yong Tau Foo as I remembered it.

Recommended Posts

Guest pak chiu cheng terng

For those of you who remembered the old days when you can still get traditional Hakka  yong tau foo , they were made with minced pork with some fish paste and some prawn thrown in and for those really lucky, they had a chance to eat in a Hakka home cooked Yong Tau Foo also shredded sliced dried squid or cuttlefish was added into the minced pork misture to really elevate the flavors to the high heavens.Image result for yong tofu with minced pork fillings pics

 

 

Yong Tau Foo made with minced pork and and some other add ons like minced prawns and veggies like spring onions, water chestnuts,

The magic ingredient added to elevate the YONG Tau Foo pork mince mix is shredded dried squid which some will deep fry and add to the mis while some will steam it to cut easier.

Todays Yong Tau foo is boring bland with standard POlicitically correct fish paste and pork free.

Today's young fellas grew up without knowing the real taste of Yong Tau Foo which is ubiquitous at all hawker centers and food courts but only a shadow of itself.

And the red sauce it is served with is actually the traditional Chee cheong Fan sauce that people drizzled on chee cheong fan becuase it was plain tasting without the sauce.

 

 

Its like not having real sex  eating to days , pork free and faint shadow of it self .

 

If you have a Hakka good friend , try to get into his  good books and be invited for a home cooked tasty real yong tau foo, with the whole real ingredients.

 

The traditional Yong Tau Foo has disappeared from the hawker centers and food courts.

Boring food court and hawker center yong tau foo ingredients stuffed with factory made fish paste bought from central kitchen supplier and just left to rot without refrigeration in the heat whole day.

I don't remember shimeji golden mushrooms and ngoh hiang and chicken nuggets being used as ingredients in Yong tau foo of the past , stall holder trying to get rid of stake leftovers?

my grandma adds salted ikan kurau instead of dried octopus (incidentally not squid) in the minced meat to give it that unique fermented taste. it was heavenly and missing it.

Some hawker got more traditional type lah, just have to eat around to find out. For eg, the new Tampines Hub hawker centre got a YTF stall that does mince pork with fish, quite popular stall, some others got chopped chestnut too, adds a nice crunch.

 

What I like about some home made traditional ones are mushroom stuff with pork/fish filling, wrapped in caul fat before deep frying, finished with garlic black bean sauce - YUM!

These are my favourites YTF's. Must check it out. :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:

 

Anyone who has lived in Ang Mo Kio long enough will know about this famous Yong Tau Foo stall, which always has a long queue! Ikan bilis and soy beans are added into its soup, making it very sweet and tasty. Doesn’t matter if you slurp down the entire bowl of soup, as no MSG is added. There are close to 40 food items for you to pick from. Xi Xiang Feng’s bee hoon is slightly different from the bee hoon at other noodle stalls. It is thicker and firmer, which gives it a nice bite.

 

Yong Tau Foo: Xi Xiang Feng

 

Xi Xiang Feng Yong Tau Foo

Address: #01-23, Blk 724 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6, Singapore 560724

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 7am to 7pm. Closed on Sundays.

 

 

 

Yentafo, our equivalent of Yong Tau Foo, is a Thai noodle dish comprising rice noodles crowned with a myriad of ingredients in a light broth tinted pink with a mildly-sweet ‘yentafo’ sauce. Both the flat rice noodles and pink broth are imported directly from Thailand. There isn’t any soya bean in the broth. Instead, it is prepared by simmering pork bones, radish and coriander root, then tinged with a pink sauce that the owner, Madam Mallika, makes. She uses natural ingredients such as fermented red tofu and cooked Thai red rice in her recipe.

 

 

 

Yong Tau Foo: Yentafo Kruengsonge Pink Noodles

 

Yentafo Kruengsonge

Address: #02-06 A/B, Cathay Cineleisure Orchard, 8 Grange Road, Singapore 239695

Phone: 6736 0971

Website: http://www.yentafo.com.sg/

Opening Hours: 11am to 10pm daily.

 

 

 

Although this eatery is famous for their ping-pong sized beef balls, which is served in a clear soup with thin bee hoon, kway teow or mee kia, the Hakka Yong Tau Foo here is also worth a try. The ingredients for each bowl of yong tau foo are fixed and very fresh. Paired with minced pork and mee pok, which is thinner than those we get elsewhere, every mouthful is full of texture and flavour.

 

Yong Tau Foo: Hakka Beef House

 

The Beef House (Hakka Food)

Address: 217 Syed Alwi Road, Gar Lok Eating House, Singapore 207776

Mobile: 9665 4919

Opening Hours: 9am to 6pm daily. Closed on Fridays.

 

 

 

The dry Yong Tau Foo comprises items of our choice generously drenched in a gooey brown minced chicken gravy(the chef’s secret recipe) and Fu Lin’s signature thick bee hoon in a starchy sauce. The deep fried items absorbed the gravy very well, especially the deep fried beancurd skin. 

 

Yong Tau Foo: Fu Lin Bar Kitchen

 

 

Yong Tau Foo: Fu Lin Bar Kitchen

 

 

Yong Tau Foo: Fu Lin Bar Kitchen

 

Fu Lin Bar & Kitchen

Address: 127 Telok Ayer Street, Singapore 068596

Opening Hours: Mon-Fri 10am to 12midnight. Sat & Sun 4pm to 12midnight.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fulinbarandkitchen/\

 

 

 

The hawker uncle arrives at his stall at 4.30am every morning, and painstakingly hand-makes the yong tau foo items. With a gradually disappearing traditional hawker scene in Singapore, it’s hard to come across hawkers still hand-making their own yong tau foo ingredients nowadays. There are 3 sets to choose from, with the most expensive being $4.80. 

 

Yong Tau Foo: Siew Lin

 

Siew Lin Yong Tau Foo

Address: 30 Stanley Street, Singapore 068739

Opening Hours: 11.30am to 2pm, or till sold out. There is no fixed rest day.

 

 

 

The hakka yong tau foo served at this unpretentious eatery took us by surprise! Instead of tau kwa, they use silken tofu with a velvety smooth texture. The fish paste is prepared fresh daily, and used as a filing for the chilli, bittergourd, tau pok and ngor hiang. The sweet sauce is fantastic. Thick, sweet and very shiok! Individual portion costs $5-$6 while sharing portion starts from $8.

 

Yong Tau Foo: Goldhill Hakka

 

Goldhill Hakka Yong Tau Foo

Address: 299A Changi Road, Singapore 419777

Phone: 6842 4283

Opening Hours: Tue-Sun 11.30am to 4pm. Closed on Mondays.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Goldhill-Hakka-Restaurant-1997-112024985486753/

 

 

 

Don’t expect a wide selection of ingredients here. The standard yong tau foo ($4) comes with bee hoon, tau kee, minced shrimp balls, mushroom-minced meatball, and more, in a light savoury soup. The items are quite well-prepared and fresh. They will ask if you want the stuffed bittergourd, or have it replaced with other items if you aren’t a fan. The best part? Extra bee hoon is free!

 

Yong Tau Foo: Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo

 

Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo

Address: #01-58, Albert Centre Market & Food Centre, 270 Queen Street, Singapore 180270

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 8.30am to 9pm. Closed on Sundays.

 

 

 

Those working around Clarke Quay can head here for your yong tau foo fix. 109 Teochew Yong Tau Foo started off 35 years ago manufacturing and selling fishball and yong tau foo items, before they finally opened a two-storey eatery. There are many items for you to choose from, and each bowl of yong tau foo (soup or dry) costs around $6, with a minimum of 6 ingredients.

 

Yong Tau Foo: 109 Teochew Yong Tau Foo
 

 

109 Teochew Yong Tau Foo

Address: 90 Circular Road, Singapore 049441

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 11am to 10pm. Closed on Sundays.

 

 

 

The elderly hawker behind the stall prepares individual items freshly on a daily basis. The ingredients are unique and are mostly steamed, not deep fried. The ingredients go very well with the clear and tasty yong tau foo broth. We prefer the dry version which comes with a sweet sauce that gives the dish an extra oomph. The chilli sauce here is also homemade. It’s not too spicy, and possesses just the right amount of punch.

 

Yong Tau Foo: Cambridge Road Yong Tau Foo

 

Cambridge Road Yong Tau Foo

Address: #01-47, Pek Kio Market & Food Centre, 41A Cambridge Road, Singapore 211041

Opening Hours: 7am to 2pm, or till sold out daily.

 

 

 

This ‘brand’ of yong tau foo can be found islandwide. There’s always a line even before lunch time at People’s Park Food Centre. Despite being a chain, the standard of their yong tau foo is good. The star of their stall is actually the noodles that have been drizzled with a mixture of their secret sauces.

 

Yong Tau Foo: Gao Ji Yong Tau Foo Kookee

 

Koo Kee (Gao Ji) Yong Tow Foo Mee

Address: #01-1114, Blk 32 New Market Road, Singapore 050032

Website: http://gaojifood.com/

Opening Hours: 8am to 9pm daily.

 

 

 

Placing your order is very simple at Xiu Ji, as you just need to inform the hawkers whether you want 6 or 8 pieces, with or without noodles, and whether you want additional ingredients such as fishcake, bittergourd, brinjal, and more. The clear soup is light and tasty, perfect for days when you’re seeking some solace. 

 

Yong Tau Foo: Xiu Ji Yong Tau Foo

 

Xiu Ji Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Fu

Address: #02-88, Chinatown Complex Market, 335 Smith Street, Singapore 050335

Mobile: 9191 4889

Opening Hours: 5.45am to 3pm, or till sold out daily.

poy kee has no franchise as far as I know.  they are very traditional and all the workers are above 60 years old.  usually sold out by 5 or 6pm.   the franchise chain store is koo kee 高记 which is terrible ... won't touch it with a five-foot pole.

The reason is Ethan likes to copy and paste wholesale from other blogs/articles without crediting them into this forum, like so many other threads he started/posted in. For example, his YTF post is actually from Miss Tam Chiak’s site, you think he really wrote all those reviews meh?

actually i love it that the deep-fried meatballs contain some fats which gives it that extra smoothness and the feeling of the fats oozing onto my tongue is priceless.
