Young hawker Douglas Ng first opened Fishball Story at Golden Mile Food Centre to much aplomb in 2014. Three years on, with the affirmation of a Michelin Bib Gourmand under his belt, Douglas continues to dole out yummy fishball noodles, using his grandmother's recipe for fishballs — these are made entirely from fish meat, sans flour and fillers! According to Tastemaker Julius Lim, you can really taste the natural goodness from the handmade fishballs as they have a certain texture and bounciness that's absent in mass-produced versions. There are two outlets — one at Timbre+ and another at a new coffeeshop in Geylang called Hungry Bee. Take Tastemaker Acamas Teo's advice and go for the Premium Handmade Fishball Noodles set meal ($6.50), which comes with a cup of freshly squeezed lime juice. The bowl of noodles comes packed with goodies such as handmade fishballs, scallion and chilli fish cakes, tofu dumpling and deep-fried fish skin. Delicious!
Avg Price: $5 per person
