Review Summary:

At Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen, the fish cake and house speciality wu xiang are the must try items here. Do order the white bee hoon that topped with the mushroom and minced meat sauce. Price may be slightly at the high side but in return you are rewarded with a tantalizing meal.

Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen @ East Coast Road 福林豆腐园

We visited Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen when it was occupied a small coffeeshop stall next to the Siglap Centre. Over the years, it has shifted a few door steps away and grow into establishing their own independent shop, business takes a further boost with several outlets across the island and city areas.

Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen growth over the years comes with reasons.

Close to 50 varieties of Yong Tau Foo items are on display, plenty of choice and all are relatively fresh.

By definition, Yong Tau Foo is supposing a healthy dish with the way how the items are presented, mainly fish, soybean and veggies, cooked in the broth and served dry or soupy. However, the best of Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen is much in contrary with its sinfully delicious deep-fried Yong Tau Foo.

Of course, deep fried alone will not take Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen too far, the quality of the Yong Tau Foo items are the stars to attract the streaming in of customers.

What is good here are their fish paste related items, from the fish cake, beancurd skin with fish paste to the stuff fish paste Tau Kwa and veggies. You can assure each piece is full of flavour with a pleasant texture.

Another must-try item is their house made wu xiang or five spices meat roll; the beancurd skin wrap encased the essence of a good wu xiang, not packed with flour but genuine well-seasoned content.

All the Yong Tau Foo gone through the deep-fried process and doused over with their house special mushroom gravy that mixed with chicken minced meat. The starchy thick gravy blended exceptionally well with the Yong Tau Foo to lift up the overall taste.

The same gravy is used as the topping sauce for the thick white noodle as well which blend very well and in combination, a sumptuous Yong Tau Foo meal that every one of us truly enjoyed.

Yong Tau Foo as an healthy choice definitely not in the case at Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen, of course, they do have the soupy version that you can go without deep frying the stuff, but honestly, we tried the healthy version as well and we will advise you not opt for it, you can get much better soupy version somewhere else.

Our verdict

At Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuen, the fish cake and house speciality wu xiang are the must try items here. Do order the white bee hoon that topped with the mushroom and minced meat sauce. Price may be slightly at the high side but in return you are rewarded with a tantalizing meal.
