was going to get some sugar & cornflour  at sheng shiong at commonwealth mrt at 12.30pm on cny eve 30.1.2014. the queues were like 20pax, so i gave up. but since i already put parking coupon, i decided to walk over to the tanglin halt market to take wei yi laksa. however laksa stall was closed. wanted to try the very nice tau huay with ginko nuts. this time, they sold out of tau huay.  no luck…

anyhow i went to the coffee shop next to the hawker centre & found a teochew fish ball noodles which i ordered.

c/w xin lu at mei chin food centre, the fish balls were just slightly harder (i guess means more starch) & maybe less tasty. the noodles were done well, qq (al dente) & not soggy however, the chilli sauce was too salty.

overall it was not as good as xin lu and also hup kee, the other fishball noodle stall at mei chin food centre. it was ok fishball noodles but not something i want to go especially to take.

wanted to have fishball noodles at xin lu (新路) teochew fish ball noodles @ mei chin food centre yesterday, but it was closed (thrsday?). so looked round & found this stall, hup kee.

price was slightly cheaper at S$2.50 (xin lu now S$3). there were 3 fishballs but also 2 fishmeat dumplings (her kiau) c/w 6 fishballs at xin lu. fishballs were almost as good, little less bouncy but sweet. 🙂 noodles were good too, qq & with good chilli mix though i still think xin lu is better. this was certainly far better than the one i had at food opera ion orchard b4 recently.

still the jalan tua kong meepok tar remains my favourite. 🙂
