Xiu Ji Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Fu

The long queue along this corner of the Hawker Center always caught my attention every time as I walked passed. Out of curiosity, I checked the stall front and see that many of their die hard patrons were queuing up for bowls of freshly made Yong Tau Fu.

Xiu Ji Ikan Billis Yong Tau Fu occupied 2 stall spaces, where by 1 of the spaces is used for preparing the individual Yong Tau Fu items while the other is for customers to order.

I ordered the bare basic meal that has 4 pcs of Yong Tau Foo with Bee Hoon (Dry).

Following the standard procedure, there are no selection of Yong Tau Fu of your choice and the 4 items in our bowls are all standard. It comprises of 1 fishball, 1 Stuffed Tau Gua, Beancurd skin and Tau pok. I found the reason of the long queue and indeed, its worth waiting for? One bite into these items and you will free the freshness of the fish paste in it. Moreover, the soup was addictive too.

On the other side, even though it was meant to be paired with a small bowl of white Bee Hoon, the taste was surprisingly good with the fried anchovies topping up. The aromatic and crispy toppings had lifted the plain bee hoon taste.

While freshly prepared Yong Tau Fu Stalls like this are getting lesser nowadays, I would say that they are unique and definitely, I will like to be back for such simple yet stomach satisfying meal.
