Now that Beeps is back at work, I've got back my regular lunch buddy. She's the one person I can always count on as a regular lunch date. We had lunch at Lau Pa Sat, which isn't the best place to get local hawker food, but it'll do as a convenient (cos it's right next to my office building), and (relatively) cheap place to eat at in the CBD area.
The Fishball Noodles ($3) had springy egg noodles, done al dente, with bouncy fresh fishballs and fishcakes, and tasty minced pork for texture.

I've noticed that most yong tau foo stalls are usually very popular with the lunch crowd. It's probably due to the fact that it's a healthy, calorie-light meal option, and its popularity ensures a daily turnover of the food, so the ingredients are always fresh. Beeps had the Yong Tau Foo ($4.50), in a yellow bean accented clear broth, plentiful fresh ingredients and soupy rice noodles to make it a filling meal.
The Curry Yong Tau Foo ($3.50) is the not-so-healthy option, but so yummy! (On a quick sidenote: why is that the unhealthy food options are always the most delicious?!?) A generous helping of fibre-rich greens (somewhat) help balance out the creamy and rich curry.
