Just a few doors down from Heng Long is my to go place for desserts. After my teochew porridge, I'll DEFINITELY go for some good old tauhuey with some crispy fragrant you zha kueh.


Still my good, old trusty place when I'm in need of some comfort food. Once in a while, they fall short of my expectation but some days it is just sooooo good. $32 for everything in there and I gotta say it's slightly pricier but I'll still have it anyways.


Fishball noodle is a staple local food in Singapore and you can find them in almost every coffeeshop/market/foodcourt. Think fishball noodles and the first place that comes into mind is - Song Kee but I'm gonna write about a fairly new startup.

Firstly let me start with a story. When I was young, my grandma used to made fishballs for the whole family to eat. As a curious young girl, I would stand beside my grandma for hours looking at her preparing the fishmeat and helping her roll them into fishballs. Recalling back, there was once an incident where the mischievous me rolled the fishball into the size of a tennis ball and threw it into the boiling water. When my grandma realise it. She chided me and said that the fishball would not be cook thoroughly. As the years flash by, my grandma no longer made fishball for us due to health reason and I have since been on a hunt to find back the familiar taste of fishball done by my grandma.

The hunt for handmade traditional fishball brought me to come across this store called fishball story. Fishball Story may not have a long standing history compared to most of the local food feature in #hawkerpedia but it is definitely worth the mention.

It started way back when Douglas Ng's (the young & passionate owner) grandmother gave a twist to an old Teochew master's fishball recipe which eventually led to the founding of Fishball Story today.

So what's so special about their fishball noodles? It's handmade solely with fish - no flour is used. I actually thought the fishball would made some good ping pong balls. Furthermore, the noodles were cooked to al dente. And, staying true to our Singaporean blood, how can we forget about the chilli used for the noodle? I'm not a good judge when it comes to flavors in chili but this is really good, just the right amount of spice and taste.

Overall, the fishball noodle were fantastic and I would definitely come back again for another visit. Who could resist a good bowl of fishball noodle right? #hawkerpedia


Old school flavors from old school bakeries. You just can't get the same flavors from breadtalk or any other not so traditional bakeries. 6 for $8.50 much cheaper than breadtalk as well!

It's the durian season again!!!! Durian rainbow ice cream (D24), durian cream puff (sold in pairs), durian crepe (D24), MSW Power puff and MSW horn for my own tea sesh back at home!! Cant wait to lay my hands on the macarons and chocolate wafer rolls as well. There's a 15% off dbs card for takeaways (but not applicable for MSW items and ice cream tubs!)


Best crab Beehoon ever!!!! The Beehoon was very well simmered resulting it being very flavorful. Also the shiokest salted egg Boston lobster 😋😋 their signature soon hock with minced meat and tofu was also super fresh 👌👌

Must try dishes: Marmite Chicken, Butter Pork Ribs, Chilli Crab with fried Mantous

Prices range from $4-$6. For $6, it includes 3 big fishballs, 2 regular fishballs, 2 fish dumplings and 1 taupok with fish paste. The noodles were of the right doneness and the regular fishballs were springy. The bigger fishballs were more fuller in taste and texture! We were quite lucky because we came in before the crowd, otherwise the wait could be as long as an hour! Opened until 3am, this is the ideal supper place if you're craving for fishball noodles!

Juicy, fragrantly roasted char siew in a bite size pau 👍👍
