Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu House is one of the latest additions to the blooming Chinese restaurants in SS14 neighbourhood shoplot. The yong tau fu serving here is indeed pretty authentic if not the best of Hakka yong tau fu in town.
Unlike the usual fish paste-stuffed yong tau foo, hakka yong tau foo mainly consist vegetables and tofu that is stuffed with ground pork and fish paste and that is exactly what you get at the Yee Kee yong tau fu House. Patrons begin with picking a selection of raw vegetables of their choice and it is then being stuffed with their meat paste and cooked accordingly; either boiling or deep frying.
The result of it- expect crispy tofu skin, Taiwan sausages and fish cake deep fried; shitake mushrooms, brinjals, and fried fritters (you tiao) are stuffed with delicious meat paste before frying at high temperature to keep the juicy and bouncy filling within the textured vege or fungi. And a generous bowl of sweet leaf soup that somewhat resembles pan mee soup with extra flavours and umami from the stuffed vegetables and tofu.
White rice is available but rice roll (Chee cheong fun) seemed to be a popular choice amongst the regulars – judging from how they are on every table as I looked around. Simple serving of this is to be accompanied by sweet sauce and perhaps a little of their chili sauce that may have contributed to the entire dining experience. It resembles the chicken rice chili that we are all familiar with but less pungent and gingery. Instead there is more vinegar in this one for that pleasant tang to balance the sweet sauce, making this quite a star element to bring out the flavour of all the yong tau fu pieces.
Having easily access to yong tau foo at almost every corner of state, it is only natural that this delicate Chinese food becoming a part of us and thus, making this a comfort food. It becomes a flavour and taste that significantly represents the Chinese culture in one way or another. Here at Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu house, menu is vey focus with mostly only yong tau foo. Beverages are very simple but popular- judging from how they sold the last glass of kedondong juice at 6pm.
