Nowadays it is hard to find handmade fishballs being sold at hawker centres or food courts. The cost efficiency and consistency of factory-made ones – although differing slightly in taste and texture – trumps tradition and it is no wonder you see many places selling that instead.

I was introduced to this by a friend and was told it was previously from Old Airport Road Food Centre (which has other famous eats!). I found it overpriced at $5 but the taste of the fresh and bouncy fishballs were a good change from the common manufactured types.

Not to forget the noodles (mee pok) that need to come with a good sauce! Their sauce was mixed with a special blend of chilli sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, vinegar and lard. I did not find the chilli sauce too overpowering; it had the right balance and was not very oily.

On a side note, this food court gave a 10% discount to Safra and Passion card members! Plus points for that!
