went with wife & daughter to try out hakka yong tau fu at the renovated ghim moh food centre on 17.4.2016. ^^
ghim moh food centre reopened in early mar2016. 🙂
i tried some dishes at ghim moh food centre at the temporary location in feb2016. they were mostly NOT great-
- famous ghim moh chwee kueh 锦茂李老三, 55years (now 57years?) recipe.
- hock lye lor mee
- only the chee cheong fun at teck hin porridge was good!
queue was long at 11am.
you have to queue to select the food items. the you have to wait (can sit at table) for the food to be cooked.
the husband & wife team were managing it extremely slowly, but steady & unhurried. maybe that’s good! 🙂
the lady helper (3rd person) was likewise unhurried & unharried, slow & cool. looked messy but she got everything right la..
there were queues at several stalls including this chicken rice stall which is a favourite for my daughter’s friend.
we had 3 serving dry, 1 with bee hoon soup.
the yong tau fu looked good, but taste-wise average, maybe above avergae
we did not have to queue that day at circuit road. but if we had gone earlier during the peak hours, probably long queue also.
well, not me, i won’t go to queue to eat yong tau fu…so no ghim moh yong tau fu for a while la…
there was a silver hair busker.
he sang great cantonese oldies, many were english songs in cantonese or mandarin. he also sang in english. the cantonese songs were best. 🙂
he collected lots of gratuity. we gave a bit too.
it is good to see older folks staying active & gainful. & he kept us entertained on a very hot day. ^^
