All about the Fishballs...

After a recent night run, I got hungry and decided to grab a bit of supper. Wanting to opt for something light and healthy, I went for Teochew fish porridge. And then the Teochew noodles stall next to the fish porridge stall caught my attention as I was slurping the porridge.

Soon, I found a bowl of Fishball & Minced Meat Noodles ($3) on my table. Moohahaha. I slurped that up too and regretted when I bit into the one lonely fishball. It was so good I wished I had ordered the plain fishball noodles....not bak chor mee + 1 fishball.

Needless to say, I returned for the fishballs a few weeks later.

The Fishball Noodles ($2.80) had eggy noodles in a pretty spicy chilli paste mixed with black vinegar and lard. But the star was the fishballs. Bouncy and springy are terms that would be inappropriate for the fishballs here.

Instead, I would describe them as supple and soft. Delicate even. Just a mere bit of resistance that breaks away as the teeth meets the fishball.

Certainly a very low-key place serving very good fishballs. I like!

Chew On This: Cos fishballs are a plenty in Singapore, but really good ones are few in numbers. I am glad I found one near home. :)
