Deep Fried Peace (Boywonder)

Another one of those days that I wonder why we bother going all the way to the eastern part of Singapore for supposedly good food when those on our side offer better. Adding to Clementi’s must-visit eateries is Halal-certified DaJie Niang Dou Fu that offers various versions of the dish like Ampang, Hakka, Laksa and Tom Yam. Frankly, I rarely eat this dish and after having tried that ‘Tak’ Bagus La Mian Yong Tau Fu at the edge of Changi Road, I refrained from eating another one … until we stumbled upon this place.

Hardly noticeable compared to the chicken rice shop 2 shops down that was doing brisk business, yet amazed us with what it had to offer. Unlike similar joints that usually chuck most of your chosen items into a pot of boiling water, the polite staff at this particular place put in a little bit more effort into preparing the dish properly like frying those that needed extra crispiness and leaving things like seaweed soaked inside a bowl of soup. A nice balance with a few dashes of ass-kicking sauce base.

I really like the fact that it’s not located in the typical chaotic environment like Simpang Bedok but within a really quiet neighbourhood, with a playground just above the hill fronting it for Ooyah to play at and other nearby food joints worth venturing to.
