Economical Meal !
Yong Tau Foo stalls can be found at most , if not all , hawker centers. While I would consider it a "generic" cuisine (that is, most stalls seemed to sell similar and uniform items) , getting the "right" yong tau foo stall is slightly more of a "hit & miss" situation. I won't be wrong to say most stalls just served "generic" taste that you get anywhere from the east of our island to the west.
So is Mei Ren Yu (Mermaid) offering any good ? well... I must say that the taste and texture of the items they served are reasonably good. The sweet and chilli sauces are just nice without over powering the cooked items. All fried items came out freshly fried and crispy. While not of superlatives level...nonetheless, somewhat just a notch above most others at hawker centers. Soup variance like laksa base is available (at a nominal 50cts extra). Per piece is 40cts.
I was actually highlighted to this stall by my mother when I brought her for check-up at the Polyclinic which was situated in the same building. She mentioned Mei Ren Yu is her natural choice whenever she's at there. It was great as it was pre-lunch hours as there is always a healthy queue as this quirky named stall, apparently have a loyal fan base.
One thing that I find it different was that they accept 5-pieces order..some I came across specify minimum 6-7 pieces. So it was really an economical meal, especially light eaters with preference for a healthy meal, at below $3.00 ! How's that for our inflationary food climate lately? So, if you in Bt Merah Food Centre... do check out this "Mermaid" :)
