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.
