we still like it very much. 🙂

price was S$3, no adding of “hum” cockles. lots of cockles and very tasty. very sinful of course, lots of oil & lar pok aka deep-fried fat pieces. the cockles were quite a bit smaller this time. i had raw cockles for my plate. ^^

there was a continuous, “never-short-of” queue.

not something i should have often, but most enjoyable when i had it.

For Old Time Sake @ Xin Lu (新路) Teochew Fishball Noodles on 3Sep2013

decided to drop by xin lu (新路) teochew fish ball noodles (formerly from margaret drive) at mei chin road food centre with son after sending car for servicing on 3.9.2013.

this one of the popular stalls relocated from margaret drive (see another relocated stall why we queue? @ hai kee cha kuay teow). i had frequented a few times after they relocated, though these days i am less enamoured with this style of pure fishball noodles c/w the teochew meepok tar type or the bakchormee, both which i like.

the price was S$3 for noodles with 5 fish balls. i ordered my usual 1/2 portion noodles to reduce my carbo intake haha (but made sure i had the same amount of chilli) & they gave me 1 more fish ball. whatever!

for me the noodles were just as good as before, qq, & the fish balls were excellent – bouncy & “shouk shouk”! i love the chilli & to go back to old times pouring the soup into the chilli after eating the noodles. it’s just that i don’t take this much nowadays and my preference is anyway for meepok tar or bakchormee. will be back after a while. 🙂

Why We Queue? @ Hai Kee Teochew Cha Kuay Teow on 3Sep2013

cha kuay teow - S$3

cha kuay teow – S$3

as some hungrygowhere reviewers said – lost & found! 🙂  see also for old time sake @ xin lu fish ball noodles.

used to frequent often to buy back when the stall was at margaret drive. though i knew it had moved to telok blangah crescent, i had not bothered to go look for it – somewhat less craving for cha kuay teow of late.

anyway decided to go last evening on 4.9.2013. everything was as before! 🙂

the cha kuay teow man looked as “young” & healthy as before. the queue was as long as before – about constantly 10+ pax & on average 3plates/packets per pax & our friend cooked 1 plate at a time just as before, so long time to wait – we waited 40 minutes as before! 🙂 the “hum” (cockles) were as huge & plump as before, and the taste as good & “pang” (fragrant) and quite a bit of “la pok” (fried lard) as before. 🙂

price was S$3 which was very fair for a large plate with lots of “hum”. where this was concerned, i was a risk taker so i had my “hum”raw (uncooked & just place on top of the noodles).
