Hong Xing handmade Fishball / Meatball noodle

Recently, I’ve been visiting Hong Lim Food Centre a lot. I think that it is quite the treasure trove for good food in Singapore. Maxwell? Hmmm…. I’m really not sure about that one.

In any case, B works really nearby and told me about this fishball noodle shop which was really good. The next time I went down, I told M that I wanted to eat at that stall. 


As expected, there was a lunch time queue, but the line moves relatively fast. Halfway through the queue, I figured out that the stall makes both fishballs and meatballs. Wanting to try both, I asked the auntie if it was possible to have a mixture of both. She readily agreed – seems like this must be quite a common request.

Thoughts: I really liked this bowl of noodles. It looks simple, but the noodles were well cooked, with the right tinge of chilli to give it that spicy kick. The fishballs were springy and had a good bite to them. The texture of the meatballs was quite similar to the fishballs, such that if not for its appearance, it was not that easy to tell them apart. It was either they had ground the meat till it was really fine or some other ingredient (fishmeat or starch?) had been mixed in with the meatballs. I’m not really sure on this. Regardless, I enjoyed both types – the fishballs and the meatballs.


Yay for another good eat discovery at Hong Lim Food Centre. Previous stalls that I’ve tried include: Famous Sungei Road trishaw laksaTai Wah Pork Noodle, Ji Ji Wanton Noodle Specialist and Tuck Kee Ipoh Sar Hor Fun.
