Xi Xiang Feng
Yong Tau Fu

If you are in this food centre,you can never miss this stall with it's constant queues through out the day.Looking at the never ending queue,it can make anyone just join the queue.

Here you select your item,pass to the vendor and you queue in queue.
I have try a few times before,some how your dish comes right everytime.

The selected items with the yellow mee,chilly and sweet sauce,tasted okay..The sweet sauce was too sweet for my liking.The items all tasted every fresh and tasted nice.But did not stand out.
The meat ball had too much flour than meat in it.

But the real star surprising has to be the bee hoon.
I have eaten this type of bee hoon maybe over some 30 years back.
The bee hoon had al dente, QQ texture.Very springy,some slight chewiness,adding some crunchiness  to it.
Really,I can't find this kind of bee hoon texture in any stall nowadays.

The soup when hot was tasty,but as it cools there was this sour taste to it.

Overall a good Yong Tau Fu.The constant queue does provide fresh stuff been refill regularly.But I won't travel all the way just for the yong tau fu... maybe for the bee hoon..But if you are around there can try.

  1. Rude And Unscrupulous Hawkers From Xi Xiang Feng Yong Tau Foo stall In Ang Mo Kio

    I ordered from this Xi Xiang Feng Yong Tau Foo stall in Ang Mo Kio two weeks ago, getting myself a 6-items bowl, consisting of seaweed chicken, tau pok, bean curd, cutter fish and kang kong and bee hoon, and I was charged $3.70.

    Last week, I bought the same 6-items bowl and was charged $3.80. I politely questioned the male hawker about the price increase, to which he resorted, "There is no increase leh." And I kept quiet.

    Today (31st March 2018), I purposely selected the same 6 items and to my nasty surprise, I was charged $4. I requested him to calculate again, informing him that I had been wrongly charged because in the past the prices were $3.70 and $3,80 respectively for the same items. Upon hearing that, the two male hawkers manning the stall turned nasty and hysterious, scolding me for making an enquiry and rudely told me not to patronise their stall again.

    I ended up paying $4 for the bowl of Yong Tau Foo, wondering if there is an organisation which controls price discrepancies especially for food items that do not come with price tags.
