Soon Li Yong Tau Foo

My first meal of 2014 was at Soon Li Yong Tau Foo located at Blk 115 Bukit Merah View #01-78. Given that the store’s opening hours are from 10 pm to whenever they sell out, this stall is one of the staple go-to’s for supper after a night of heavy drinking. And it is precisely […]
