Cheap and Good, absolute value for money
Seng Heng Family Restaurant is like a hidden treasure. In a corner that's quite easy to miss 5 minutes walk from the Yishun Bus Interchange, I've walked by it countless times without noticing it. Then when I finally tried it, it went straight into my Top 10 list of eateries. At just $2.50 for 6 pieces of Yong Tau Foo, I've tried both the Soup version and Laksa version.
The soup was flavourful and very appetising, going very well with a bowl of rice. The chilli has a unique flavour to it, making it go well with the ingredients. The laksa gravy is decent, though with the right combinations of ingredients it can take on a special taste too. Both version come in fairly large servings, so it is definitely value for money.
Being tucked in a corner right beside an escalator, it can get quite warm even with the fans. So be prepared to sweat it out when eating there, though to me the sweating is just a unique part of the experience of eating these local fare!
Wonderful Laksa gravy
Tucked in an unassuming corner near Yishun bus interchange is Seng Heng Family Restaurant, a place where laksa and Yong Tau Foo lovers will gather. For $2.50, you can choose 6 pieces from a range of over 20 different ingredient and a bowl of noodles or rice. If this is not worth your money, I don’t know what is! The most amazing thing about this store is that it serves laksa gravy, which is what most people come here for. The gravy is matrimony of sweet and salty and brings the most common yong tau foo dish to a level you never imagine existed.
If you just want a bowl of laksa, that’s fine too! The thick and fragrant gravy taste great with rice noodles as well. The restaurant is really generous with the amount of cockles they give which greatly enhances the taste of the dish. My only complaint is that the place is a bit small and cramped and you may have to share a table with strangers. But for the sake of good food, I think it’s all worth it!
