12th April 2024

Best yong tau foo in Singapore

Yong tau foo (YTF) is a lunchtime favourite among Singaporeans, providing a nutritious meal, with greens, protein and carbs all in one bowl. It’s cheap too, and you can usually mix and match whatever ingredients you like. While there are many such stalls in Singapore, these are the best yong tau foo stalls in Singapore that stand out with their range and quality of ingredients.

1. Fu Lin Fried Yong Tofu

I’m biased towards Fu Lin Fried Yong Tofu, as it’s my favourite YTF stall in Singapore. Don’t expect healthy YTF here; their standard plate features fried goodies doused in a starchy meat sauce. The noodles are also one-of-a-kind, featuring silky-smooth laksa noodles sitting in a pool of savoury minced pork sauce with mushroom bits. Choose from over 50 ingredients, each priced between $0.40 to $2. 

Address:  721 East Coast Road, Singapore 459070
Opening hours: Daily 9:30am to 9pm

2. My Favourite Cafe

Do not be deterred by the grumpy aunties rushing you to pick your favourite ingredients at My Favourite Cafe. Cheap and good, a bowl of seven ingredients is priced at $5. One item to pile your plate high with is their pork meatball. The umami-rich parcel is crunchy on the outside and juicy within.

3. Xi Xiang Feng Yong Tau Foo

Long queues typically mean good food. And for the case of Xi Xiang Feng Yong Tau Foo, this proves to be true. Proffering close to 40 ingredients, their YTF stands out thanks to the QQ bee hoon that’s firmer than normal. This allows the noodles to better carry the scrumptious sweet sauce doused over it. If you prefer thicker noodles, they also have chee cheong fun to go with your fish balls and seaweed chicken. Pricesstart from $0.70 per ingredient, with a minimum order of six pieces.

Address: 724 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6, #01-23, Singapore 560724

4. Tiong Bahru Yong Tau Hu

The bouncy handmade fish balls at Tiong Bahru Yong Tau Hu are made of wolf herring and yellowtail. They are the main reason why people keep coming back. Unlike most places on the list, you don’t have the liberty to choose your ingredients from a counter—instead, you get combos starting from $5.50. That being said, you can request a certain ingredient over another, if, for instance, you don’t like tau kee and want more wonton.

Address: 56 Eng Hoon Road, #01-56, Singapore 160056
Opening hours: Daily 7am to 4:30pm

10. Good Stuff!


Those who love yong tau foo and fish soup ought to try out Good Stuff!, which has an outlet at VivoCity and Lorong Chuan. The new player in the YTF scene is known for a few distinct things: First, they eschew the clear and light soya bean broth that’s typical for the dish, instead, serving up a broth made from slow-boiling fish bones. Next, they serve up fried yong tau foo platters, with ingredients made in-house. Try it for yourself when you order their Family Delight Set ($26.90), which comes with a platter of 24 YTF pieces, and a big bowl of fish broth. If you gotta have your YTF with carbs, then order a bowl of Hakka Noodles ($2) too, where you get QQ noodles tossed in an addictive sambal sauce.

While yong tau foo is not the only thing on Pang’s Hakka Noodles’ menu, the dish is the stall’s signature. Their aptly named Signature Hakka YTF Noodle ($6.30) sees a generous bowl of Hakka noodles dressed with minced pork and garlic oil paired with a bowl of homely yong tau foo ingredients. If you prefer something spicy, their Signature Curry Hakka YTF Noodle ($6.80) is an excellent bet, thanks to the punchy curry soup. Don’t miss out on trying the Extra Spicy Shrimp Sambal the stall is known for as well—made in-house, this sambal is fiery and balanced, with a distinct sweetness from the shrimp.

13. Yong Xiang Xing Dou Fu

If you’re looking for yong tau foo in Chinatown, another excellent stall to go to is Yong Xiang Xing Dou Fu, which is only open for three and a half hours a day. The long-queue stall sells their yong tau foo at a flat $6, and you can’t choose the ingredients that come with your order. Instead, each bowl comes with nine items, including their house-made tofu with fish paste. The soup is also light, but still very flavourful—a great accompaniment to the variety of ingredients. The yong tau foo doesn’t come with rice or noodles as well, so you’ll have to look elsewhere in the food complex for your carb fix. Don’t let that deter you, though, as it is still quite filling!
