Good Stuff! – Handcrafted Yong Tau Foo with Tasty Fish Soup and Curry Chee Cheong Fun

February 28, 2024

Discovering a new food stall always excites me, especially when it offers something unique like yong tau foo with collagen-rich fish soup!


Good Stuff at Food Republic @ VivoCity has unveiled a handcrafted yong tau foo served with collagen fish soup. This departs from the traditional, lighter-tasting yong tau foo soup brewed with yellow beans.


Each morning, they painstakingly hand-stuff every piece of yong tau foo, infusing their creations with a labor of love. The menu offers three sets to choose from:

  • Special Set: Mushroom, lotus root, youtiao, fried dumpling, tofu, and money vegetable.
  • Tofu Set: Fishcake, taupok, taukwa, fuchuk, tofu, and money vegetable.
  • Vegetable Set: Fishcake, lady’s fingers, eggplant, bitter gourd, tofu, and money vegetable.

The handcrafted fish paste boasts a velvety softness, while the fried items are adorned with a crisp, golden exterior, harmoniously coated with a tantalizing tau cheo gravy.

Among the favourites, the hand-stuffed tau kwa steals the show. The tau kwa strikes the perfect balance of crispness on the exterior and softness within, while its fish paste filling adds a satisfying umami kick. The individual vegetables, such as the bitter gourd and eggplant yong tau foo, are cooked perfectly, preserving their juiciness.



Once you’ve chosen your set or two, it’s time to select your preferred carb. At Good Stuff!, yong tau foo can be enjoyed either “dry” or “with soup.”

For my first dish, I couldn’t resist trying the Chee Cheong Fun, something I’d been eagerly anticipating. I opted for the Curry Chee Cheong Fun with the special set ($8.90). The curry sauce generously coated the soft, pillowy rice rolls, creating a mouthwatering combination.

Adorned with two pieces of beancurd skin, fried shallots, sesame seeds, and crispy dried shrimp, each bite was a burst of flavour. Piecing together the rice rolls and yong tau foo created a perfect bite, where the delightful crunch of the flavourful ytf balanced out the aromatic, soft and savoury rice rolls.


For those seeking a heartier feast, the Combo Set ($12.80) offers an array of options, including noodle soup or dry noodle. If you opt for the dry rendition, you’ll have the option of either Homemade Dark Sauce (non-spicy) or Crispy Prawn Chilli Sauce (spicy). Alternatively, for the soup version, you can choose between fish soup (non-spicy) or curry (spicy).

I decided to pair the Hakka Noodles with the Spicy Crispy Prawn Chilli Sauce, garnished with crispy fried shallots and fresh spring onions. The combination was simply irresistible. The crispy chilli sauce delivered a perfect blend of spiciness and crunch. It’s the kind of dish that keeps you coming back for more, with its spicy, savory, crunchy, aromatic profile. Alternatively, you can opt for the Ipoh Hor Fun, enjoying the slippery noodles with the accompanying ingredients for a different but equally delightful experience.


Now, let’s talk about the star of the show: the soup! Regardless of which dry noodles you opt for, a bowl of fish soup accompanies your order. While many yong tau foo soups in Singapore tend to be light and clean, sometimes bordering on bland, Good Stuff! takes a different approach.

They begin by deep-frying copious amounts of fish bones, followed by a meticulous three-hour boiling and simmering process, ensuring a freshly-prepared batch every day. The result? A robust fish broth brimming with natural goodness. I was greeted with a perfectly balanced broth, accentuated by delicate umami notes from the fish, hints of ginger, and a touch of natural sweetness. The soup paired flawlessly with the noodles, offering a comforting and satisfying experience. I was particularly delighted by the addition of money cai in the soup, such a rare find in yong tau foo stalls now.

For those planning a gathering, the Family Delight Set ($35.90, comes with 3 carbs as well) offers an enticing array of 24 deep-fried delicacies, accompanied by a generous bowl of fish soup adorned with beancurd and money cai. Ideal for 2 to 3 diners, this sumptuous platter showcases an assortment of yong tau foo delights, drenched with the irresistible tau cheo gravy.



In addition to the main offerings, patrons can indulge in sides such as fried dumplings or dumpling soup, accompanied by a selection of sweet sauce or Thai sweet chili available at the front counter.

I loved combining yong tau foo with the tasty fish broth—it was the best of both worlds! My favorite noodle pairings were the Curry Chee Cheong Fun and Hakka Noodles. I can’t wait to go back for more! Visit their Instagram page @goodstuffytf or website for updates.
