Most of this stall’s yong tau foo items are stuffed with yellowtail fish. The choice of fish, a naturally oily and buttery fish similar to mackerel, perfectly complements both plain and strong flavours in majority of its offerings like fishcake, bittergourd and tofu skin, which is deep-fried to a chewy crisp. The fish paste is made in-house too, then stuffed into various root vegetables, like brinjal, lady fingers and capsicums. Apart from the usual, pick out chunky rectangular tofu, it’s exceptional and when blanched in hot soup, unusually soft and clean-tasting. A minimum of seven pieces must be selected, with bee hoon as the only noodle offered. Have it with savoury soup or dry, topped with a thick reddish-brown fermented bean curd gravy that leans towards the sweeter side.
