Xiu Ji Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Fu

The yong tau fu here are freshly made and steamed at the adjacent stall. One could taste the freshness of the fish paste. The tofu presents itself and tender and fresh. The queues are long, but fast moving. Be prepared for a 15-20 minutes wait.

The signature taste comes from the sprinking of ikan bilis on the noodles. This gives cruch and sweetness while one savour the noodles, fresh yong tau fu accompanied with ligh sweet broth.

The chilli sauce adds extra acidity to the noodles and makes the experience more appetizing. The frequent customers here simply pour the chilli sauce next to the noodles to save time. I did the same and loves the kway teow infused with the chilli sauce and it makes an excellent photograph too.
