Normally I’ll try not to write bad reviews but in this case, I have to inform my readers. Yong He used to be THE place for soy bean curds and youtiao (fried doughsticks) back as far as 2 decades ago, but ever since they moved to the lower parts of Geylang, their standards have been dropping. And not too long ago, they have moved again to Geylang Lor 224A where I tried again, and that was probably my last time. See my comments below the pics on the reasons why:
Overall Rating: 3/5. Need to buck up and raise to their previous standards; especially with a name as ‘King’ of soy bean and youtiao! Seems like they are not interested to run the business anymore. After so many moves, I can understand. Rentals and greedy landlords can really screw up businesses!
I was looking for a place for lunch one of the early afternoons around Paya Lebar area when this super loud signage caught my attention. So I went in and found a table at one corner. Although it is named Old Street, this joint has the latest gadgets for their Order Management System! I was so impress with the iPads on every table and patrons can order their foods at the comfort of their table! Check out my review below:
Overall Rating: 4.5/5. Although it is a little on the pricey side with GST, the food is really of good quality and taste. It would be cheaper if I wasn’t alone. Nevertheless, thumbs up and would revisit soon!
Yah I know the name of the shop sounds very weak. But this neighbourhood place for tau huay is very popular with everyone living within and out of the vicinty. I’ve done this on video before on Youtube but I thought I should feature this here as well.
I chanced upon this place when I was checking out the place for food one day. And to my surprise, the snacks here are really good! Pics all taken with my handphone.
Taste: The soy bean curd is filled with soy bean fragrance and extremely smooth. Cold ones not as smooth but the can cool you down during the warm day. Puffs, pies and other stuff is really good too.
Portion: Soy bean curd filled to the brim. Pies also with loads of fillings. Value for money!
Price: $1.50 for a big bowl of soy bean curd. 3-in-1 is going for $3.00. Pastries are pretty good but a lot cheaper than *ahem* the big brands.
