Gosh I’ve been dreading to write this article. Over the last few months, I’ve been busy, busy and busy …. and yes … I’ve been overlooking my lost love. My interest in writing about food.

And to call myself a foodie. Am I? Sigh…..

Anyway, let’s just do this ……

So where do you find good food in Singapore? No pun intended but most people tell me you can’t find any good food in Singapore. I know that sounded biased but that’s how it is … especially if you don’t know Singapore well enough.

So to make things simple, I got myself some local guides … I meant some Singaporean friends who could actually tell me where to have good food. And this is where they brought me to ……


Most people know what Geylang street is popular for, but I rest my case on that topic. Today, we shall talk about some really good food here.

Yong He Eating House is one of such. Yong He Eating House is located along Geylang Street, somewhere near Lorong 6 and 8. Like any other coffee shops in KL, Yong He does not brand any expensive setups, very simple layouts with rude customers and waiters.


The good stuffs in Yong He includes their Yu Tiao (that’ll be Yau Ca Kwai in cantonese) … and mind you, Singaporean ones are particularly long … and I meant their Yu Tiao. Besides that, we also had their Toasted Bun Meat Floss with eggs … simple delicious, crispy to munch when served hot.

The salty Glutinous Rice is unique … feels like Yu Tiao wearing a glutinous jacket. Good to go with coffee if you don’t mind your coffee being oily. The Carrot Cake is special too, since it came packed with eggs. I find it rather … munchable and it really fills up your appetitie real quick. Finally came the Fried Meat Dumpling which I find rather bland. The dumpling skin is really thick … and meat is … too little.






I hope you enjoyed this round of food shots all the way from Singapore … and I’ll run by more shots of Food In Singapore soon, I hope.  And here’s a map to Geylang and Yong He … for your referral.

    I’ve been wondering where you’ve gone to. Now I know 🙂 I always feel that the locals the world over are the best in giving advice about food.
