Hakka Yong Tou Fu

I have been pestering my dad to bring us to a decent Hakka Yong Tou Fu (YTF) place for 2 years. This time round, we finally managed to fit that into our schedule and we were not disappointed. My father has been patronising this stall for years and swears by it.



Just beside it was a roast stall. How convenient!
My dad decided to order chicken 'rice' as part of our Hakka YTF meal. Great mixing and matching huh?

I wouldn't say the rice was fantastic but it wasn't oily at least...
The skin was crispy on the siew yoke. The meat was part fatty and skinny but it wasn't tough. The guys polished this off in minutes.




The star of the show. Hakka YTF. I'm amazed at how crispy the wantons were. And I really enjoyed the stuffed toufu. It was silky and smooth. Did I mentioned that the stuffing was pretty generous as well? My favourite is the eggplant. Funny how no one fought with me on that one. I think the texture and colour of the eggplant looks pretty in the YTF dish!



and just for the fun of it, we tried the "Whatever" drink....

That's my half-serious look. I was trying to figure out what flavour that was.

It was sweet peach tea.

My recommendation? Ditch the drink. Stick to the Ampang YTF instead.

Ditch the drink indeed! I had one of these sugary drinks during my drive back to hometown and it nearly made me sick...

Daphne!! You are back in Singapore?!?! Goodness, we are now stepping on the same piece of land :D

I like YTF too~ It's rather healthy and tasty! IF you are looking for a good chicken rice, you can try the stall at the Katong Shopping Center. The food court at the basement. The soup they served are like full of ingredients! There's once I had ginseng chicken soup!
