My opinion:

Yi You means “good for health” in Chinese. The owners sell traditional Singapore char siew rice, duck rice and roasted delicacies. For this 2016 food review, my mother and I have tried their char siew and roasted pork rice for $3.00.

There were 7 pieces of char siew, 7 pieces of roasted pork meat and moderate amount of rice in our takeaway packet. Char siew was juicy, soft and did not have charred or fatty portions. Although roasted pork was not too salty, it had an awkward oil taste and pork skin was not crispy enough. The owners were also stingy and unprofessional enough to leave out packets of chili for takeaway customers.

To sum up, the food here was cheap, plentiful and had a few flaws that prevented us from visiting them in the near future. Our advice to our blog readers is to try out their char siew rice but leave the roasted pork alone.

Ways for the owners to improve their food ratings:

First, roast the char siew for a longer duration. Second, thoroughly review the preparation and production processes of the roasted pork. Third, remember to include at least one packet of chili for each takeaway customers.
