3rd-Gen Hawker Sells Hakka Mee, Yong Tau Foo Under CCTV Supervision By Dad In Malaysia

3rd-Gen Hawker Sells Hakka Mee, Yong Tau Foo Under CCTV Supervision By Dad In Malaysia

How does a bowl of lard-slicked Hakka noodles tossed with minced pork and spring onions with a side of comforting yong tau foo soup sound? Get it from Hakka Taste SG, a three-month-old stall tucked away in an Ang Mo Kio Ave 5 kopitiam (where the original outlet of popular Thai wanton noodle chain Soi 19 also resides). 

The stall is managed by Fico Tan, 32. The Singapore PR hails from Batu Pahat in Johor, where his family runs a yong tau foo eatery. “I’ll be focusing on expanding our brand here in Singapore,” he shares. 

Yong tau foo, with its minced meat or fish paste-stuffed vegetables and beancurd in a light broth, can be found in many parts of Malaysia – though some regions, like the Ampang area of Kuala Lumpur, prefer to enjoy the stuffed treats slathered in a sticky brown sauce.
