Yahoo - Sunnybank

After quite a few somewhat extravagant meals out, my companion and I were looking for somewhere inexpensive but with good quality. Having not gone up to Little Taipei for a while, we thought it to be a nice place to try something new. Arriving, we were both shocked and dismayed to see that Yakitori, Ren, and Momo Juice bar had closed down, David's appeared to be closed down, or maybe they were on holidays. All that was left was the Taiwanese bento place, Yahoo and a newly opened Tofu dessert place. Customers were also sparse, and we decided to stay and and grab dinner at Yahoo. 

We ordered at the counter, but rather than grabbing a number, the elderly owner brought out the food to us when it was ready. My companion ordered the egg ho fan. Whilst you can't really see in the photograph, the noodles were deliciously caramelised and lightly toasted and then drenched in copious amounts of egg sauce, topped with some chicken, pork, fish cakes and veges. Whilst we would have liked more noodles to go with the sauce, the flavours were really compatible, and we really enjoyed the meal.

I opted for the bak kut teh with rice (as there was no other options for noodles. The soup was only mildly herbal rather than the super strong hit I was expecting, but the pork was tender and comforting, and the tofu soaked up a lot of the hot soup. The portion of rice was very generous and for a dinner under $15, I would say the quality was definitely there.
