Soon Li Yong Tau Foo – Famous Yong Tau Foo at 2am? No Problem!
Who would have thought of having yong tau foo for supper?! Well, Soon Li’s here to entice your palates. Located at Bukit Merah View Hawker Centre, this stall operates as and when they feel like it, so don’t be surprised if it’s closed for business on some nights. Our guess is that this elderly couple has children supporting their livelihood, but due to insomnia, they run their stall for a short 3-4 hours at night just to keep themselves occupied.
The queues might get very long over the weekends, so grab a couple of friends, as one has to select the yong tau foo ingredients, while another queues for payment, and the last has to ‘chope’ a table. There are a large variety of ingredients to choose from. The uniqueness lies in the pork belly, with a good mix of lean meat and fatty layers. You’ll be able to find generous servings of cuttlefish, squid, pig’s innards, and more.
We had a bowl of yong tau foo soup, and also tried the dry version of yong tau foo. Accompanied by a bowl of noodles, these cost us $11 in total. The noodles were slathered with a mix of their yong tau foo sauce and chilli. Beware of the chilli as it’s quite fiery.
Unlike the usual mild and light yong tau foo soup, this soup gave a peppery punch despite being clear and savoury. Their chilli stuffed with fish paste shocked my tastebuds, as I didn’t expect it to be filled with chilli seeds. Stalls usually remove the seeds, but Soon Li definitely wants their customers to feel the kick!
As for the dry version of yong tau foo, we regretted not picking more fried items, as they really go well with the sauce.
To be honest, I wouldn’t take the trouble to travel all the way to Bukit Merah just for yong tau foo in the middle of the night. It’s not as impressive as I expected it to be. However, since this hawker stall is so popular, you might wanna give it a try.
