Soon Li Yong Tau Foo

While most of the stalls in Bukit Merah View Market and Food Centre is or have already done for the business day, Soon Li Yong Tau Foo has just started busying preparing for the start of business. Stall is manned by a husband and wife team who are notorious for their short tempers. If you are asking too much questions on the opening timing during the wait or slight slower in ordering or blocking their passage way, you will get the ferocious stare on their face.

Besides their unique opening hours from midnight onwards, Soon Li Yong Tau Foo attracts customers with their wide range of items, about 20 over items. Special items includes, pork belly (roasted and non-roasted) meat, intestines, stomachs, pig skins and even fish maw.

Over 20 kinds of ingredients for selection
The wait for Soon Li Yong Tau Foo to open is heart throbbing and unveils all sights of being a true kiasu Singaporeans. The scene was surprising to me when Soon Li Yong Tau Foo started to light up their business signage and everyone rushed into be in the first in queue. It looked as if we were there for free food but in fact its not. Everyone has to crowd around the limited shop front to grab the items.

However, the trick is to team up, getting one of us to queue up and the order to pick the items. After picking the items, you have to put the bowls on the top of the rack. The first in the queue will get their food to be served first.

Every bowl was placed in a traditional huge metal bowl.Broth was really good, making up of ikan billis and very flavourful with the taste of pork innards. When it comes to the ingredients, they are very fresh as they were made daily. 

$13 Portion

Pig intestines and stomach were all well handled and they went in the soup without letting any foul smell. Cut green chilli and ikan bills were thrown in, giving the soup to a whole new level. Items were meticulously cut into bite size chunks.

  Just look at the size of the bowl, its bigger than a man's hand.

The bee hoon and noodles were cook to perfection and drench with sauces, a mixture of chilli and sweet sauce. Dark brown crispy fried pork lards were mixed in to enhanced the plain taste. Yummy!

If you are having some midnight cravings and have time to spare, you might want to have a good experience here. Frankly, I never had such anxious experience to queue for food and this experience was really something I had never think that I would ever do, its just too crazy. Nevertheless, I will not stop me from going back again. It's really an interesting supper experience.
