At yong tau foo stalls, rice or noodles are typically offered as the carbo filler. But chee cheong fun? Now that’s something we don’t often see! This stall at Amoy Street Food Centre is one of the rare few that offers the extra option of chee cheong fun.
If your order is for dry yong tau foo, they will blanch the yong tau foo and place it together with chee cheong fun and sweet sauce and/or chilli in the same bowl (above pic).
If you order the soup version, they’ll serve the chee cheong fun and yong tau foo in soup separately.
The chee cheong fun is the factory-supplied variety. Very ordinary on its own, but somehow, it tastes extra special with yong tau foo!
For their yong tau foo, it’s the generic variety offered by other yong tau foo stalls, eg. stuffed tau kwa, tau pok, eggplant, bittergourd, ladies finger, chilli, fishball, et al. The range is rather extensive as there’s both fried and boiled items.
What makes their yong tau foo unique is their fish paste stuffing, which is mixed with carrot strips. There’s certainly a very homely feel about their yong tau foo. Our only grouse is that they could be more generous with the amount of stuffing.
This stall is immensely popular with the lunch crowd, with their chee cheong fun being the bestseller. Sometimes, they even run out of chee cheong fun by 1pm, so make sure you come early!
