This famous teochew noodle stall since 1968 has garnered raving reviews and how can any meepok lover possibly NOT try this at least once in their lifetime?
I was quite worried that the noodles will be too sweet when ketchup is found in the sauce but it turned out otherwise! The wonderful chemistry between the chilli and ketchup sauce brought the meepok to life instantly. It's a spicy yet subtly sweet, with bits of crispy pork lard to close off a successful deal.
But the star is still the handmade fishballs made with yellowtail fish. They were fresh and springy, though too salty for me. Nonetheless at $3 for such an appetizing bowl of noodles with five big fishballs, this is indisputably both calorie- and queue-worthy.
