Delicious Fishballs and Fishcakes... worth repeats.
This another of my hawkers review. No, not that I write about any stalls that I patronized. But only those that has that "X' factors - regularly long queue, have a loyal clientele base generated by, of course, great food.
This popular stall is simply known as "Teochew Fishball". No lofty ego-inflated name attached to it. You can locate it easily from the main staircase facing the main carpark. Strange of case "generic" branding here. Can't imagine if another teochew fishball opening at the food centre. Guess that's where reviews and pictures will come in helpful to help readers zoom in.
While this stall is popular and enjoyed regular healthy queue. It does rest on it's laurels. It's one of the few I witnessed that installed a automated ticketing/receipt machine. The staff simply tabs on the screen, after asking if it's take away, type of order, etc. While I am not sure if it speeds up the queue, I'm the staff owner have a easier time with his kitty figures at end of business day.
So what's so good about their food? For one thing, their fishballs and fishcakes are delicious. Not salty and slightly springy to the bite. There's also the sliced fishcakes that are of the brownish/orangy colour that's a signature of this stall. The "coarse' and irregular shape of the fishballs tell you it's handmade.
The minimum order of $3 gets you 2 miserable fishballs with big slices of fishcakes covering the entire noodles beneath. My noodles came nicely cooked without being too tough or soggy. The chilly sauce add a nice lift to the meal. But I would recommend at least a splash of vinegar too. The iceberg lettuce are a nice touch but not generous either. Guess cost are really high nowadays. Those with healthier appetite would do well ordering the $4 portion.
Those prefer laksa soup can opt for that, if available.
Overall, a simple dish as the teochew fishballs, is made more enjoyable at this stall. It's has become my "comfort" food for a light afternoon and evening meal. I am sure you will too.
