Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo 百年酿豆腐 @ People's Park Food Centre (Chinatown)


Over here at Bai Nian, the only way you can have your Yong Tau Foo is with bee hoon (rice vermicelli) soup. They do not serve it dry or have other kinds of noodle options like kway teow (flat rice noodle) or yellow noodles.

You have no choice over the ingredients as well as the ingredients are fixed. The only decision you can make is whether to have more bee hoon (at no extra cost) and whether you want the small ($4.50) or big bowl ($5.50).


Luckily for me, I always prefer to have Yong Tau Foo with soup. You will never catch me having it dry as I prefer my dry noodle in a soy-based sauce instead of the sweet sauce which I find gross looking. 

The sweet sauce they have is rather generic but the chili is quite potent. An extra saucer of the sauce costs 30¢.
When I took a sip of the soup, I instantly fell in love with it because it is very comforting and wholesome. The taste is unlike any of the YTF out there which you have to try for yourself to know what I am talking about. 
Ingredients wise, although the options are quite limited, they are hand-made and you can really taste the freshness.


This is the pork paste with shredded black fungus added for the extra crunch. Normally, I do not like to eat minced pork (Dim Sum, Ban Mian, Big Pau etc) as I sometimes find the marinade too heavy and nauseating for me but the one here is different and agreeable with my taste buds.


The next highlight has to be this prawn paste that is filled with chunks of prawn meat. The texture is really good.


I believe the above three items named white (白条), black (黑条) and gold (金条) on their signboard are actually fish rolls wrapped with different kinds of skin although I cannot tell one apart from the other. All three are savory and chewy. I find these quite enjoyable to eat.

This is stuffed bittergourd that has been fried. Slightly bitter but still good.

This has got to be the most unloved item in my bowl. Ironically, this is the tau foo item that is not filled with any paste.

I have heard about the perpetual queue during weekdays thus I visited the stall on a quiet Sunday morning. I am glad that I have made the right decision because I could place my order right away as soon as I arrived without the need to queue.
