Firstly, let me address that burning question in your mind. “What is yong tau fu?”
Yong Tau Fu
To put it simply, you pick your own ingredients for your meal. A person is given a bowl and tongs to pick up the variety of ingredients available. For example, there will be eggs, seaweed, vegetables, Japanese seaweed chicken, fish ball, meatballs, cuttlefish, etc. After picking, you can either add rice or a type of noodles with a chosen sauce or soup like sweet sauce, tom yam soup or clear soup. It’s a much healthier food option too!
#TrevellersTip: Each item comes at a specific price. For example, $0.40 – $0.60 for each food item, with a minimum purchase of 5 items. So for the same food, say meatballs, always choose the bigger one because it is going to be the same price anyways 😉

Yong Tau Fu is everywhere, in all hawker centres and food courts in Singapore. However, to find a good one is tough! I prefer handmade ingredients to factory made ones because they just taste much nicer when it comes to the texture and flavour. I found this place and we have never stopped going back since!
Sweet Succulent Meatballs
Meatballs are one of the world’s best inventions after pizza. These meatballs are handmade by James and his wife every morning. We always have to go there early because their meatballs are so good that they are sold out by noon!
These savoury meatballs are juicy and sweet. It’s also full of meat and flavour that you only want more! That’s why it remains the most popular food item there.

Tofu Skin Roll with Yam
This is probably my favourite thing from Zheng Tian Tian Yong Tau Fu: their handmade tofu skin roll with yam. The tofu skin is rolled in marinated yam. The roll is then lightly fried till crisp before bursting out in flavour once it reaches your taste buds.
