a roaring business of fishball noodles.

The recent elections seem to have made Singapore's political environment more vibrant. With so many things going on, I guess today must have been quite exciting for those who went to the polls. After Mum made her way to cast her vote, we headed for the Hougang Mall to get our money changed for our coming trip and on the way there, decided to stop for some fishball noodles which we haven't had in a while.

I first came to know about this place from Ling cos it's been her favourite hangout every Sunday since she was young. If I remember correctly from her, the son of the old man who used to cook her noodles years ago has now taken over the stall (Correct me if I'm wrong, Ling). I told my mum about it, she liked it and started buying it occassionally for breakfast.

To be honest, I can't really tell what's good or great fishball noodles. All I know is that the noodles served here is cooked well to the right texture for me. The chilli is not overly spicy so at least my tastebuds can still pick up the taste of the noodles. One thing to note though, is that for $3, they're quite extravagant with their ingredients especially with fishcake.















If you want to have a taste of the noodles, be prepared to wait at least half and hour. In fact, I think we waited longer than that. They're really packing in a roaring business with many take-away orders especially. Whether the fishball noodles is worth the wait and the patience is up to the individual. At least for me, I left with a satisfied tummy.

P/S: During the wait, Mum and I got too hungry and ordered some Indian Rojak from one of the stalls at the coffeeshop. It turned out quite good actually cos the gravy was tasty and the Rojak especially those with the flour, were lightly crispy. Quite good compared to many that I've tried before at least.

  2. Hey hey, you finally reviewed my tah mee place! Just had it for breakfast this morning, so this was a nice surprise. A suggestion though - you should try to avoid weekends and public holidays cos the wait is always well over 45 minutes. I always go on weekday mornings when the waiting time is less than 10 minutes. I think they open at 7 or something, so you can go with your mom and get her to drop you off at Kovan MRT afterwards. BTW, if you don't like the fishball, can tell him not to add fishball, then he'll give you an extra prawn instead.

    Oh, and finally ah, GOODWOOD PARK'S DURIAN PROMOTION IS BACCCKKK!! I just bought my first box of six for 2006 yesterday. Must try the durian crumble and the durian hazelnut tartlet, zeng! Let me know what you think if you try it.

    1. Apologies for the late reply! I didn't know they moved! I'm not based in Singapore at the moment but the last I was back in Aug 2012, the noodles were actually still there. Sorry that I'm not of much help!
