How many of you eat yong tau foo but hardly recall the name of the stall that serves it?
We don’t either, but something tells us this brand we’re about to tell you is one you will remember.
Halal yong tau foo stall
Dou is a halal hawker brand in Woodlands that opened for business in the middle of this year.
The stall sells yong tau foo, a Chinese soup dish with Hakka origins.
Interestingly, Dou is the sister brand of Meixi’s Kitchen, a non-halal yong tau foo stall with numerous outlets in Singapore.
The brand was started as a result of customers’ requests for a halal stall, according to this post.
Prices & ingredients
Like other yong tau foo stalls, there are numerous combinations you can choose and order at Dou.
A basic bowl of yong tau foo starts from S$4.20, which consists of five ingredients and a base of noodles or rice. You can choose either to have it with soup or dry.
If you prefer a different soup/broth, there are laksa, tomyum and mala for an additional 80¢ – S$1.
You can also choose to add more ingredients at 70¢ a piece. These range from fried dumplings, taupok and beancurd stuffed with spread of Dou’s original chicken paste.
Two halal-certified stalls in Woodlands
According to their social media pages, the brand exists in two coffeeshops within Woodlands.
Both outlets are MUIS halal-certified, so Woodlands residents…you all are very lucky.
As Dou is still a relatively new brand, we might see more outlets sprouting up around the island and may even be a household name one day.
For now, if you’re seeking halal yong tau foo in the north, one name should come to mind immediately: Dou.
