We have found it! Yippie!

I loooooove tahu telor (deep fried toufu dish with lots of egg) but it’s so hard to find nowadays, I don’t know why. I used to frequent a Malay stall at the Clementi coffeeshop near the carpark, but it stopped serving tahu telor. For the longest time I couldn’t find it anywhere, except at the Tangs restaurant where they made a very good, but pricey version.

Today we ventured to Bedok Corner Food Centre. Oh my. The food there looks very very good, and we will definitely be back to try the various offerings. Many stalls have won awards for their food and have newspaper clippings proudly displayed on the front of their stalls. The cheng tng, the jiu he eng cai (cuttlefish and kangkong dish), the boneless chicken rice, the satay…I need to bring my father here (though I suspect he, being even more clued into the best hawker food around, has already been here). They even have roti jala! So so hard to find.

Anyway, the minute I spotted tahu telor on the signboard of Ole Ole Javiyan, I knew what I wanted for dinner. I have a weakness for this dish. The soft toufu, covered with crispy fried egg – fried until the eggs are bubbling, airy and light. Mmmm…so nice. If you’ve never tried tahu telor, please do yourself a favor and go try it!

I was in toufu heaven when I bit into my first mouthful. Super crispy eggs wisps contrasting with the soft toufu, accented by the crunchy peanuts and spicy sauce. I thought it wasn’t as good as the one in Clementi, but I’ve missed this dish so much I was just so happy to eat it. And it’s good enough, and anyway, the Clementi one is no more.

So pleased I know where to go for a tahu telor fix now.
