Food review: Xian mei yong tau foo at bishan s-11

People who knows me understands im quite picky about my food. So when my blogger friends invited me down for  a meal at Xian Mei Yong Tau Foo at S-11 directly opposite the bishan mrt station i was initially sceptical. But.. im glad that i was proven wrong and had a satisfying and affordable meal. 

Xian Mei Yong Tau Foo prides itself on its handmade Yong Tau Foo and its unique soup base. You can opt for their Laksa Yong Tau Foo, Yong Tau Foo Noodle Soup, Yong Tau Foo Dry and Ma La Yong Tau Foo. Oh yes, according to the owner, they are the only store with Ee Mian as one of their noodles AND their chili is self-created.

My friend tried the Laksa base which I tried. Its not too thick which makes it light on the stomach and not too jerlat which was something I feared. And I think it goes well with the Ee Mian because the sauce kinda gets absorbed into the noodles. 

As for me, I went for the safe choice of clear soup broth. And the only thing that could go wrong was if they used lots of MSG which thankfully they did not. 

For the ingredients, I loved how they had some china side dishes (Example the seaweed as seen above). And before I forget to comment about their chili, which I felt would have made all the difference. Not spicy or 'xiang' enough -And I would have loved if there was the iconic soya beans to add to my meal. 

Owner was very friendly though and recommended us to add in the Fried tofu Skin which made everything ever more yummy. I mean who can resist that! And friendly owner makes everything great! I believe if I wanted more soup base, they would also be Okay. (Don't say I say one ah! And you. Don't. be. greedy. la - haha)

I was tempted to go for another plate of Chee Cheong Fun Yong Tau Foo but I knew my stomach wouldnt be able to take it. Would try that next time!
