Nian Nian You Yu. After my last hawker listicle on Bak Chor Mee Soup in Singapore, I thought the ‘all-natural development’ would be on Fishball Pasta.
There are many Fishball Pasta delays in Singapore, however very few offer hand-made fishballs and fishcakes anymore. So I actually treasure one if I come throughout any. Surprisingly, I pertained to become aware that several brand names source from the very same vendor, but anyhow … that’s close to the factor.
Fishball Noodles in some way taste much better with mee pok (maybe that’s just me)– the noodles qualified by its flat and somewhat wide look.
There are numerous great stalls around, and also I attempted up more than twenty from LiXin Teochew Fishball Noodle (ION Orchard), Fa Ji Fishball Noodles (Kovan Market and also Food Centre), Chun Fu Fishball Noodle (Kovan Market and Food Centre), Thye Hong Fishball Pasta (Ghim Moh), Tom Cityzoom Mee Pok Tar (Ghim Moh) and also Jalan Tua Kong Lau Lim Mee Pok.
Do not snap with me if your favourites are not noted lah. I actually appreciate Song Kee Fishball Pasta at Toa Payoh Lor 5– it’s my go-to on an individual basis, though I assumed the final item was not so constant of late.

I check out that there are fairly varying top qualities among the 4 stalls; as well as I attempted both the initial Holland Drive and also Old Airport Roadway outlets.
Being fresh made, the fishballs as well as fishcake are of terrific top quality. The well known fishballs begin as a ruined mixture of fish paste, making use of just pure fish meat without any flour extenders included.
If you are unqualified also much seasoning, order “少辣” (Shao La, much less chilli) to make sure that the spicy, savoury sauce at the base of the noodles are simply sufficient to coat the noodles once blended. The pork lard likewise supplies that positive problem. Ru Ji Cooking Area (Holland Drive)

Yet it is those fishballs that steal the program as they are quite divine– very juicy as well as bouncy. I also delight in the clear soup garnished with fresh coriander as well as springtime onions. Probably among Singapore’s ideal fishballs.
