Goldhill Hakka Restaurant offers a wide assortment of ingredients such as tofu, fishball, stuffed chilli and more. Their prices are surprisingly affordable, starting at $7 for 10 pieces of ingredients and going up to $14 for 20 pieces. Don’t be surprised to find that the yong tau foo here is stuffed with house-made fish paste, rather than the meat-filled, fried variety. Dip the YTF in their house-made spicy and sweet dipping sauces!

Have your YTF with Mee Tai Mak ($1.50) instead of the usual rice or bee hoon. This well-loved dish at Goldhill Hakka, served dry, is tossed with shallot oil and blanketed in fried shallots, a savoury accompaniment to the clean-tasting yong tau foo.

One of the signature dishes they offer is traditional Yam Abacus Seeds, priced at $5 for 10 pieces━a dish that is rarely seen these days due to the laborious preparation required. Here, these soft and chewy dumplings are house-made from yam and rice flour, and are topped generously with fried garlic, shredded dried cuttlefish, crushed minced salted fish and shallots.

If you are a seafood lover, the Steamed LaLa ($12) is a must-have. It is a popular dish loved by Goldhill Hakka’s patrons for its simplicity and large portions. Speaking to the freshness of the clams, they’re simply steamed with Chinese hua tiao wine, chilli pepper and garlic, bringing out the natural sweetness of the shellfish.

If steamed lala is not for you, another seafood option is Steamed Fish (market price), which is topped with chilli padi and spring onions. They also serve Yu Sheng ($12) and Bamboo Clams (from $16) at Goldhill Hakka Restaurant, the former, a marinated raw fish dish, that is not commonly seen these days!

Goldhill Hakka Restaurant also offers Steamed Herbal Chicken (from $35) for customers who prefer a meaty alternative. Do note that you will need to pre-order this two days in advance with the restaurant if you would like to have this.
