Golden Mile Special Yong Tau Foo 黄金特制酿豆腐 (Golden Mile Food Centre)

Golden Mile Special Yong Tau Foo 黄金特制酿豆腐 (Golden Mile Food Centre) is located at the basement of Golden Mile Food Centre.
If you read the articles displayed at the stall, you would be able to find out that this stall has been around since 1958! In addition, the ingredients some of which are handmade would be sold out fairly quickly by 3pm!
The Yong Tau Foo ingredients on display were normal. In fact, if you are a Yong Tau Foo fan you would notice that the variety is limited compared to other stalls. But what made it fantastic is that the ingredients are all so fresh. The price is $0.40 for minimum of 8 ingredients, $0.50 for cuttlefish and $0.50 for bee hoon. This is so cheap!
Hence, despite the limited variety, this stall is very popular during lunch time. This is also partly because of its low and reasonable prices. During lunch time, you would need to wait for a minimum time of 25 minutes to 45 minutes.

Look at the number of bowls / orders waiting to be cooked. If you noticed, at the background of the photo, the ingredients such as tau pok, pork skin, fishball and tofu would be left simmering in the pot because they will not be overcooked. For such ingredients, normally, I will just inform the person that I want those items when ordering.
I have been to this stall so many times over the past 2 years. Always order eight to ten ingredients and they always cost less than $5 (if not$6). If I had ordered this much at food courts.. I think it would have been easily above $8!

Other than the freshness of the ingredients, the soup was unique. The soup comes with a mixture of bean and fish taste because it consisted of the water used to soak the fish paste and was also cooked with fish bones! The photo below shows the Yong Tau Foo I have eaten over different occasions. You would noticed that I always order the same items because of the limited ingredients.. yet I never get sick of this. Simple comfort food.
