Yong Tau Foo of Siglap....

Siglap is definitely the place to go for Yong Tau Foo in Singapore, similar to Ampang in KL. Well, my colleagues and I were nearby at east coast and we thought it's a good idea to have yong tau foo for lunch. After all, this is one famous stall, next to the Siglap Centre, besides the big monsoon longkang (drainage).


Assortment of ytf 

fish cakes, lady fingers ...

And noodles in mince meat gravy.
The noodles were a bit different from those of KL as they use the translucent type or known as 'chu mi fen' translated rough vermicelli and mixed with mince meat in thick gravy. It's unlike those in Malaysia where you can ordered the type of noodles you preferred in laksa or soup or 'dry' type.  

That's a great lunch!! :)

  5. I like "chu mi fen" more than the normal meehoon actually.. and that bowl looks good!! and I think SG's "chu mi fen" also different from ours here, theirs more translucent and chewy whereas ours are opaque and soft..
