Yong Kee Famous Fish Ball Noodle

Fishball Mee Pok

Not completely full from those baozi, we grabbed a bowl of fishball noodle from this other stall (6 Jalan Bukit Merah #01-121). It looked disappointingly dull when the thing first arrived, and it even featured one of those annoyingly useless leaves of lettuce as a garnish. But never judge a book by its cover, right?

Right. This thing actually turned out to be pretty darned good. Giving it a stir from the bottom unveiled all of the chili sauce and bits of fried pork lard hiding at the bottom. Perhaps more importantly, the noodles here were nearly perfect, being firm and full of character. We liked it so much that we went back for a second bowl.

Actually, there was a bit of vinegar in this thing too, so it's pretty clear why I liked it: it's got the same vinegar, fried pork lard, and mee pok noodles that I love about Tai Wah's bak chor mee. Mmm...

The fishballs are handmade. And it's not every place that has the fish dumplings which you ate. They open till pretty late at night, so this is a good place to grab a bite after drinking.

Oops. I was told they are "homemade", rather than hand-made. They are pretty firm to chew on, unlike most other fishball shops.
