I've been seeing a constant line at Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo 百年酿豆腐 when I was food spotting at the sprawling People Park Food Centre for the past two days.
Stepping up, seeing the busy stallholders prepare and cook fresh ingredients in that steaming, bubbling hot broth got my interest piqued. The lady in pink was making meat balls with that special device and dropping them directly into the hot soup 😀 I am very hungry liao 😋
I got this SGD5 bowl of soup with yong tau foo to try. At People's Park, the Bai Nian yong tau foo outlet sells only the soup version (no "dry").
The hot broth has mild layers of savoury sweetness. It's delicious. I tasted mostly bone broth and not much, if any, MSG at all.
There were 2 freshly made pork cakes in the soup. Woooo...hooo I love these fresh and sweet meat cakes. Made with minced marbled pork, the meat cakes were soft and had bits of crunch from small pieces of black fungus inside.
This tender bouncy prawn ball has a nice refreshing prawn flavour. Very tasty.
The fried bean curd skin wrap of the fish roll has a soft crinkly feel and the fish paste inside is tender. There is a slight fresh fish flavour.
Wait! there's more - the familiar brinjal, spongy (holey brothlogged type) tofu, and tau kwa stuffed with minced pork.
The bee hoon is clean tasting and has a nice soft spring to the bite.
Honestly, hor... this Bai Nian stall has many office lady fans because the SGD5 bowl is just nice for a lady's lunch. For a man hor.... still a bit hungry afterwards.... but wait. At Bai Nian, bee hoon is free flow, so big boys can fill their stomach. Actually, I can't resist having two bowls of this delicious Bai Nian yong tau foo.
I like Bai Nian's sauces too - the sweet sauce has hints of that old school fermented bean curd flavour, and the mildly spicy chili sauce has garlic inside 😋 Nice!
3-Star (out of 5). A different and interesting twist to the classic yong tau foo staple. I enjoyed Bai Nian's take for it's tasty broth, fresh pork and prawn balls, and the other ingredients like fish roll are good too. Give Bai Nian a try - it may change your way of eating yong tau foo too 😀
