This youtiao reminds me of my childhood so much. I have been going to this stall for over 20 years, since I was a kid. Really good food for a reasonable price (60 cents per youtiao) in a traditional market place. The owner has been in business for over 60 years, and they handmake their youtiao and it tastes especially good! The youtiao is light and fluffy and not too much meat. Besides youtiao, they also sell butterfly bun(a must try!), red bean bun, green bean bun. The butterfly bun is flavorful and the boss is always extra generous with the sesame seeds.
Also, 2 stalls down they sell dou hua, so you can combine these 2 for the yummilicious dou jiang you tiao! Right now I am in the US, and whenever I think of homemade breakfast, I think of this stall in Toa Payoh Lor 1 dou jiang you tiao, the place I grew up in my childhood. I would highly recommend everyone go to this bustling and traditional market, one of the few good places left in Singapore where they hand make youtiao!
I have tried out other youtiao stores, and so far in my 30 years I like this youtiao store the best. the youtiao is very crispy and always fresh, because the owner makes it straight out of the oven. it is delicious and great for breakfast with the family. I have been going to this stall every sunday with my grandma since I was a kid. the boss is friendly and since I am a regular customer, he gives me extra fluffy youtiao. I would recommend this stall! One of the best ones remaining in Singapore.
The only youtiao stall that deserves my thumbs up. It's best to eat it while it is served hot and fresh right out of the oven. You will never want to miss out such a good food in Toapayoh... I have been eating since I was young and will be going every week at least 1-2 times. My favourite is the butterfly bun, it is flavorful - not too salty, not too sweet, just right!
