For lovers of yong tau foo
Leaving the city via train, I made my way to the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. I got off at Glen Waverley Railway Station and decided to have lunch there before continuing my journey. The yong tau foo at The Grand Tofu was definitely worth the stopover.

Yong tau foo is a Chinese dish consisting of stuffed tofu cubes, eggplants, mushrooms, bitter melons, fish balls, crab sticks, okra, chillies, wontons, etc served in a broth soup with noodles. It is commonly eaten in various parts of South East Asia.

Ordering yong tau foo is somewhat of a process. Here's a simple guideline to follow.

Step one: Pick the type of broth you want (either clear, tom yum or curry broth).

Step two: Pick the type of noodles you want (either rice, vermicelli or egg noodles).

Step three: Choose your six stuffed items from the display counter.

Your chosen stuffed items are then sliced into pieces, cooked in your chosen broth and served with your chosen noodles. Personally, I prefer clear broth and rice noodles.

The Grand Tofu is located on the Kingsway strip of shops. It is within walking distance from the railway station. Do check this place out if you are in the vicinity of the City of Monash.
