Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood: Zi char stall with popular creamy salted egg pork ribs & shiok prawn paste chicken

Golden Mile Food Centre is the home to rows and rows of popular hawker stalls in Singapore. Every time I visit this hawker centre near Nicoll Highway MRT, I’m treated to the most delectable food that our local hawkers have to offer, and Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood is one of them.

I first learnt about Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood via social media, in which a foodie posted an image of a stunning plate of golden salted egg pork ribs doused generously in sauce. I was instantly intrigued, and decided to pay a visit to the stall on a Saturday evening.

The stall offered dishes ranging from classic zi char dishes like cereal prawn to hor fun and seasonally priced crabs.

When I arrived at the stall around 5pm, the staff informed me that there would be a 30 minute wait— I wasn’t sure if the long wait time was due to an internal break in the kitchen or if the food was still in preparation, but I decided to exercise some patience and await the arrival of the dishes.

After a long wait, the piping hot plates of food were served to my table. Plated with vibrant orchids and coriander, the presentation of the dishes were almost on par with restaurant food!

What I tried at Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood

The first thing that I had to try at Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood was their famous Salted Egg Pork Ribs, available in 3 priced portions: S$14, S$20 and S$26. I opted for the $14 option, which granted me a small yet sizeable portion of ribs.

I was instantly impressed at the generosity of the salted egg sauce, which coated the pork ribs liberally. There were even bits of chopped salted egg speckled throughout the dish!

The salted egg sauce was on the sweeter side. Personally, I would have preferred for the sauce to be more savoury, as it got a little jelak after some time. However, I liked how strong the salted egg taste was, and the bits of whole salted egg enhanced its flavours even more.

The pork ribs themselves were a tad drier than I would have liked, but the sauce covered the entire surface of each rib, giving them a strong salted egg flavour.

I can see why Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood’s Salted Egg Pork Ribs are so popular. The amount of salted egg sauce is truly commendable and I would return to try this again.

Next, I went for the Prawn Paste Chicken, priced at S$10, S$15 or S$20. I got the S$15 portion, which came with 10 pieces of crispy mid-wings.

As far as Prawn Paste Chicken goes, Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood absolutely nailed the dish. Each chicken wing was nicely marinated and seasoned, and the meat of the wings was juicy and tender. The skin of the chicken was crispy and flavourful too.

At just S$1.50 per wing, Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood’s Prawn Paste Chicken was worth every penny.

The Onion Omelette (S$8 / S$12 / S$16) wasn’t as impressive as the former dishes. Though it had a lovely fluffy texture and a satisfyingly soft mouthfeel, flavour wise, I found it to be a little bland. Perhaps if it had been seasoned more, it would have been more palatable.

I moved on to the carbohydrate dishes offered at Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood. As a huge lover of fried rice, The Sambal Fried Rice (S$6 / S$10 / S$15) immediately caught my attention. I got the S$6 portion, which provided a pretty sizeable amount of rice perfect for a single diner.

The Sambal Fried Rice came with a scoop of sambal on the side. The rice itself was full of flavour, with just enough saltiness to enhance its wok hei flavour. It was a little on the oilier side, as with all great fried rice, so no complaints there. I liked how the fried rice had bits of char siew and many pieces of whole shrimp in it too!

I would have preferred for the sambal on the side to be cooked with the rest of the rice, so as to allow for a better dispersion of flavours. Aside from that, The Sambal Fried Rice definitely satisfied me.

Finally, I decided to give the Moonlight Hor Fun (S$7 / S$11 / S$16) a go. For the uninitiated, Moonlight Hor Fun is a plate of fried kway teow noodles topped with a whole raw egg. With it being my first time ever eating a raw egg, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood’s Moonlight Hor Fun was incredibly delicious. I mixed the noodles with the egg, which made the dish extra creamy. The noodles were sweet with a nice charred flavour, and the taste reminded me of a plate of good ol’ char kway teow, just with some added creaminess from the egg.

The Moonlight Hor Fun was served with a piece of lime for squeezing. However, I realised that I preferred the dish without the lime, as adding the lime made it a little bit bitter.

Final thoughts

I was pretty impressed with the dishes at Yong Kwang Yummy Seafood. The quality and presentation of the dishes were restaurant-worthy, and the prices were fairly reasonable too. It’s no wonder that this humble zi char stall has made a name for itself.

In the future, I would definitely re-visit this hawker stall when I am in the vicinity of Golden Mile Hawker Centre. I can’t wait to get my hands on their delicious Prawn Paste Chicken again!
