DaJie Niang Dou Fu
354 Clementi Avenue 2
I have been eating here since they first started out sometime 3-4 yrs back.
I didn’t really want to share this place as I liked their nice Ampang style yong toufu (Niang Dou Fu) version which is Halal.
Another thing why I didn’t really want to divulge this place was because it is a really small outlet and the next thing I realize lately was that it’s getting harder and harder to find seats, which rarely happens. But it meant that it’s been gaining much popularity.
There are also a lot more food that they sell beside Yong Taufu but I’d suggest stick to the basic.
The east(Changi) have Bagus Yong Tau Fu and right here in the west at Clementi you have Da Jie(big sister):
But since there have been many newspaper articles about it and has also been widely spread with words of mouth, then I shall recommend it to ya’ll.

This was the many many newspaper clippings on the side of the wall.
There was a Myanmar lady who use to man the cash register when it first started and she hardly spoke much malay and very bad english but she was always smiling.
After a few years she could actually understand Malay like ‘Makan'(eat here), ‘bungkus'(packed to go) and she actually looked like the mascot on the signboard with the dark skinned lady winking.I kid you not!
However, you don’t get to see her there any more.

There are a lot of variety of food you can choose from.
Niang Dou Fu or Yong tau fu literally means stuffed bean curd. These bean curd are usually stuffed with fish paste steam and boiled in soups, usually eaten with noodles or even rice.
Here you can choose the many different version instead of the more common clear stock made of anchovies or ikan bilis.
The have Ampang, Hakka, Normal clear soup, laksa and black bean sauce.
I’d normally go for Ampang as it is thicker sweeter and generally they deep fried everything you choose which is uncommon in normal Yong Tau Foo.
I like the crunchy tofu skin on the top left. Dipped this in the chilli/red sauce and it’s really yummy!
My Kway teoy noodle came with a touch of sesame oil and went well with the Ampang gravy.
My Husband who opted for the Hakka style which was somewhat like soy sauce gravy.
My uncle who’s Chinese also said the food here was quite nice and that the soup if added with some rock sugar would be perfect.
Da Jie Niang Dou Fu sells unpretentious simple food that fits good rainy days.
The Makcik at the cashier is always very friendly and welcoming.
I highly recommend this, if you want something different to your normal boring ol’ Yong Taufu
