Hup Chong Hakka Yong Dou Foo

Not as good as few years back but then.....

I have eaten at this quite a number of times before.Few years back this yong tau fu wowed me.And I was quite a regular here.Till the standard started to dropped.... I slowly stopped patronizing...Now after some years,here I am ... I tried twice....


You can be easily fooled by the low patrons queuing at the stall.For orders had been already placed and the piles of plates can be scary.

Though the standard for me,might have dropped but this stall still draws the crowds and waiting time can be over 30 minutes even after of peak hour.I was there around 2.20p.m and 2.30p.m,waited around 30 minutes for my yong tau fu.


They have a very large variety of both meaty fried and fish paste stuffs. And all the stuff I had were quite nice.


Their once super siok meatballs has shrunk quite alot.But with raising prices who can blame them.
Having not eaten here for so long.The meatballs and mini ngoh hiang,in fact all the fried items certainly tasted heavenly.The flavouring,seasoning of the minced meat is just to good to be ignore.Certainly the fried items here are a must try.
The 2 times I had,the sweet sauce was abit unbalance in taste.The first time was very nice well balance.The second time it had a slight after taste to it.The chilly sauce on both occasion was very good,not hot spicy but certainly added to the taste and flavour.


The pricing were reasonable.Mine was around $4.50-$5.00.All the stuffs I had were very nice.
Overall if you have not eaten here some years back.Then it won't make much of a difference

Though it may not be as good as few years back,but then simply just comparing with some of the the well known yong tau fu stalls around,this stall is still there with them. .

  8. yeah! i went Block 124 to eat yesterday, confirmed with them that they had permanently moved to block 124. I also saw the banner at block 116, but if you looked at the stall, hidden behind the cardboard is a notice that they are moving to block 124. so evil leh, those people who try to hide the truth and mislead the consumers.

  9. Hi everyone,

    There are too much rumours spreading around which are very damaging to my family’s reputation. For those Anonymous writer, please identify yourself and stop spreading rumours of my family.

    Let me clear the air by first posting an introduction of Hup Chong Yong Tau Foo.
    Hup Chong Yong Tau Foo was started in 1952 by the grandfather of Mdm Lee (The current owner of Hup Chong Yong Tau Foo). Back then, he was selling YTF in a push cart along a street called “For Sang” (read in Cantonese). The business continued with Mdm Lee’s father who sold the yong tau foo in a tricycle. This special recipe was then passed down to the 3rd generation, Mdm Lee and her younger sister, who rent a stall at Toa Payoh Blk 109 selling the YTF using the grandfather's recipe. Subsequently, they moved the business to Blk 116.

    The stall at Blk 116 is run by Mdm Lee who is the 3rd Generation of Hup Chong Yong Tau Foo. The stall at Blk 124 is run by the 4th generation who inherited the skills from the 3rd. That answers why the aunties prepare a better Yong Tau Foo. As to why the 4th generation add a Hakka to their signboard, please check with the owner of Blk 124. Is there a need to change a well established signboard?
    People are asking which is the original stall. Think about it, which generation comes first? The answer is the 3rd generation who operates at Blk 116. For enquiries, please check with the 3rd generation, Mdm Lee. The 4th generation will not know the history of Hup Chong Yong Tau Foo better than the 3rd.

    There is a Lian He Wan Bao article on our website www.facebook.com/hupchongytf talking about the 3rd generation of Hup Chong Yong Tau Foo. Take a look at the signboard, the old signboard has always been Hup Chong Yong Tau Foo. There is also a video of Hup Chong Chong Yong Tau Foo appearing on Makansutra Raw on youtube. Take a look at the signboard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72I4iOtEHRQ&noredirect=1

    Hope that I managed to clear everyone doubts.

    For any enquiries, please email us at hupchongytf@yahoo.com.

  10. aiyah speculate so much for what. Two more weeks you go check if the same people are selling the ytf there or not loh. I also went to eat at blk 124 before few months back. It open so long liao leh, more than one year at least and also when blk 116 also selling. So why your colleagues say they bo pian move to blk 124? Your colleagues zhun boh?
    The people working at Blk 124 also not original loh... I long time customer loh, unless the original workers there suddenly become so young lah and got PRC there.

  11. Just curious, who is this person that has been replying on behalf of the 3rd-generation Mdm Lee?

    On what date is the Wanbao article based on? It does not indicate whether the shop has moved nor the ownership, so it does not prove anything. If the workers are different, does it prove that the shop is not the original? Can't Mdm Lee hire external help? I would not assume.

    The information I've read thus far is too vague for us consumers to make a judgement, therefore I would like to verify the sources if possible.

  12. Damaging your family's reputation? I tot 3rd and 4th generation also from the same ancestor?
    Whatever generation, 3rd/4th/even 10th also passed down from the own generation..
    As a consumer, I don't understand why people are keep on comparing about the stall at 116 or 124. We will go the stall which have a better quality of food, so stop showing the hupchong YTF page and we don't need any enquiries about your stall...
