Mala and Yong Tau Foo fans would be familiar with DaJie, a halal-certified brand of eateries with outlets in Clementi and Bukit Batok serving the aforementioned dishes.
Easties would now get to enjoy DaJie’s delicious offerings as it just opened the latest outlet in Bedok. The eatery’s own Instagram page @dajiebedok, announced the good news on its opening day which was December 13.
Popular for different styles of yong tau foo
At DaJie, building your yong tau foo bowl starts off pretty much the same way as everywhere else — you select the ingredients you want and put them in your bowl. Prices are based on the type and amount of ingredients chosen.
The selection of ingredients are extensive; you can find everything from leafy vegetables, fishballs, tau kwa, tau pok, hard boiled eggs, fried wanton, tofu, brinjal, bittergourd and more.
However, unlike conventional yong tau foo stalls/restaurants, DaJie offers six styles for you to choose from; choices include Hakka, Ampang, Laksa, Tom Yam, Mala and not forgetting the normal clear soup!
Note that the restaurant also makes the dish two ways—soup or dry. This allows even more customisation options, which we appreciate.
If you do not enjoy decision-making during meal times, DaJie also offers familiar dishes that everybody would enjoy.
Here, you can find rice favourites such as Roasted/Steamed Chicken Rice, Chicken Char Siew Rice, Kampong Fried Rice and Ayam Penyet. For noodle options, try Chee Cheong Fun or Chicken Noodle with Fried Wanton.
For group diners, the Mala Hotpot would be an ideal option because misery loves company, no? Assemble your party (no more than 8 pax please) and take on DaJie’s Mala Hotpot which consists of a variety of meats and side dishes, cooked together in a unique blend of tongue-numbing spices.
For their new opening, DaJie is offering a 10% discount of all menu items at the Bedok outlet, till 13 January. If you are on a hunt for a new makan spot in the East, this could be it. For more details, do visit their website here.
Note: As it is a new outlet, halal certification for DaJie Bedok is pending approval. Their other outlets at Bukit Batok and Clementi are already halal-certified.
