The main stall at the front of the restaurant is the yong tau fu stall. Besides the yong tau fu stall, there are also other stalls that sell popiah, oyster omelette, wan tan mee, rojak, chee cheong fun, and pan mee. 

There was a queue for the yong tau fu. We queued and by the time it was our turn, we were given a basket. There were a wide variety of yong tau fus. They had the fried thin beancurd, fried beancurd, fish cake, fried turnip, fish ball, fried egg with fish paste, wan tan, tau fu pok, long bean, eggplant, bitter gourd, chili, etc.
