Salted Egg Yolk Fries

ARBITE CAFE SALTED EGG YOLK FRIES

Fries all day, every day. All the better if they are coated with salted egg yolk sauce! Arbite dishes up a really mean serving for less than S$10, so this works really well as a sharing dish. Even better if you have it all to yourself.

IMPERIAL TREASURE FINE DINING SALTED EGG YOLK SQUID

Sure, salted egg yolk squid is getting pretty ubiquitous and it is not that unreachable. But few places do their salted egg yolk dishes as well as Imperial Treasure Fine Dining. The Salted Egg Yolk Squid (S$22) is our pick, but if you are not a fan of squid, go for the Salted Egg Yolk Prawns (S$28)

Now, you have to trust us on this because we’ve been there many times and they never disappoint. Totally worth the splurge!

Taste Good Salted Egg Yolk Pork

TASTE GOOD SALTED EGG YOLK CHICKEN

Taste Good at Sim Lim Square does a salted egg yolk chicken that has us falling in love with every bite. The richness and creaminess of the salted egg yolk  that combines with the crispiness of the chicken is totally to die for. It can do with more sauce, though.

THE CHINATOWN STALL SALTED EGG YOLK TOFU

We chanced upon this food booth by Soup Restaurant at Takashimaya’s food hall and saw that they had a fried tofu with salted egg yolk sauce (S$4.50) cup to go and we knew we had to try it. Albeit nothing special, the sauce itself was decent and it made a good snack for our shopping adventures in Orchard Road.

Salted Egg Yolk Onion Rings

THE REFINERY SALTED EGG YOLK ONION RINGS

The Refinery’s Salted Egg Yolk Onion Rings had us at hello. Thick cuts of onions coated with beer batter, deep fried, then lavishly coated with salted egg yolk sauce… no, you better taste it for yourself and enlighten us – what adjective is better than ‘best’?

TWENTY GRAMMES CHARCOAL WAFFLES WITH HOMEMADE SALTED EGG YOLK SAUCE

Besides Fatcat Ice Cream Bar, another place that you should try is Twenty Grammes. The Charcoal Waffle (S$8.50) at Twenty Grammes was definitely on point. The crisp outer layer, coupled with the addition of an ultra-rich and slightly thicker salted egg yolk sauce, is such a divine combination. The sauce is served in a huge and generous pot and we could not have been more delighted and satisfied.
