[Review] Fu Lin Bar & Kitchen: Where Yong Tau Foo and Cocktails Thrive Together!

April 22, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Located along Telok Ayer Street at the heart of Singapore's Central Business District (CBD) is Fu Lin Bar & Kitchen which is making waves for its famous yong tau foo and hipster bar concept.


Since its humble beginnings from being in a coffee shop to its first stall in East Coast and the modern concept it is today, Fu Lin has clearly revolutionalised one's idea of how yong tau foo is to be served. 

In the day, one would find throngs of diners flocking over from the nearby offices for the legendary yong tau foo, and the various beancurd-based items would be chosen off the bar counter (the lady's finger is a top-seller!). After 3pm, Fu Lin turns into a bar serving tapas and wines - along with the yong tau foo, of course.


Die-hard Fu Lin fans will swear by its Legendary Yong Tau Foo (S$8++) paired with its signature Fu Lin Noodles (S$4++).

The thick bee hoon noodles are, unlike at other Hakka yong tau foo stalls, served in a special chicken-based broth gravy. As someone who does not quite like food drenched in sauce, I have to say that the noodles were overall not too salty and complemented well with the various yong tau foo items.

For sharing, I would recommend the tender Crispy Pork Belly (S$12++) and premium Chargrilled Iberico Pork (S$15++).
We heard that the Muar Otah (S$9++), named after the town in Johor (Malaysia), is a popular dish too.
My favourite dish, though, has to be the Truffle Tofu (S$9++). It is slightly crispy on the outside, yet soft and flavourful on the inside. For those who love truffle fries, this is definitely a must-try.
The chargrilled crispy Enoki Mushroom Fries (S$8++), served with cajun powder at the side, also offer a wonderful end to the evening over a glass or two with friends/ colleagues.

After the lunch crowd disperses, the bar's creative juices are turned on and the unique selling point here is that all its bespoke cocktails (S$20++) can be customised to the diners' preferences.

Amongst the drinks we had were The Lady (left) and Blue Frog (right).
One of the more unique drinks offered is the Buah Long Long named after the Southeast Asian plum fruit otherwise known as spondias dulcis. Served with pickled sour plums, the flavours are strong and can be quite overpowering. So be warned - yes, even though it comes in an innocuous-looking mug, it contains alcohol too!
A drink I highly recommend is The Galaxy which owes its natural blue shades to the blue pea plant. Apart from tasting like the familiar childhood fanta grape drink, this cocktail is visually mesmerising when one swirls the straw to reveal silverish waves.


Fu Lin Bar & Kitchen clearly knows how to stay ahead of its game with its creative concept, despite staying rooted to serving what it is most famous for - its traditional legendary yong tau foo.

We heard that it will be opening another outlet soon. Though it may not be a bar, we are looking forward to it!
