Saw a long queue here when we passed by the last time and made a mental note to come back for it. The Signature Meesua ($5.80) that comes with scallops seemed popular, but we got this bowl to satisfy our fishball cravings. Also decided to top up a dollar for pork livers in the soup since we heard good things, and so glad we did.

The mee kia used here is a flatter kind, and was very springy with a good bite. Chilli was punchy, while the soup was sweet and flavourful from the added minced meat. Fishballs were fresh, but I loved the livers the most - they were well marinated, crunchy and cooked superbly well. PS. Orh-Kee’s open 24 hours, so that means you can have suppers here too!

This bowl was one of the dishes available of their current seasonal menu. Broth was quite creamy with a light pumpkin sweetness, noodles had a good bite and you get a variety of seafood - prawn, scallops, squid. Pretty decent!

There was an ongoing all day 1 for 1 promotion when we dined in so we didn’t use Burpple Beyond, but otherwise, you can also get 1 for 1 mains on Beyond.

Looks a little messy because we dabao-ed! Other than the Kolo Mee with Sesame Oil ($4.90), the second combi we went for was ramen + mala sauce. Likewise, the noodles had a pretty good bite, but I’d go back for the kolo mee for it was springier! The level of spice here is default, and it came with a nice heat. It was nicely savoury and not too salty. Fishballs were a little bland, might be better if it was swapped with something else.

Love how Green on Earth is now so near me that it’s quickly becoming my to-go spot! Popped by for breakfast the first time a few days back. Their breakfast menu is small, with only 2 choices - this customisable noodles or Scissors Cut Rice ($4.90). Tried two different noodle combinations and enjoyed them, especially this fragrant kolo mee + sesame oil combination! Even though we dabao-ed these, the noodles had a good bite and didn’t turn clumpy, except that the fishballs were a little bland. Will be back very soon 😂

Unlike their other bowls that use a mix of chili and vinegar, ordering this signature will get you mee tai mak tossed in a glorious amount of pork lard oil. It’s fragrant and very tasty, despite how plain it looks! You’ll be recommended to not add any additional chilli sauce or vinegar and to taste before adding chilli padi to your liking. We didn’t, as it comes as good as it is with crunchy bits of pork lard, plus handmade meatball, her giao, her chiok and veggie roll. The handmade pieces were all seasoned very well and had a good bite. We missed this the first time we came around noon on a Saturday, so it’s probably best to come earlier or drop by on the weekdays. That aside, you will have to be prepared to wait, ours took about half an hour+.

Lucky that we joined the queue right before the lunch crowd came! Picked mee kia and they were done as q as usual. Just can’t get enough of their umami sole fish based broth - it’s super comforting and the depth of flavour is always so impressive!

Have been wanting to try Xin Yuan Ji but always get deterred by its queues 😂 Opted for no milk for my bowl and though it was already tasty, I liked it even more with milk for that extra sweetness and creaminess. Fish slices were firm and fresh, was a comforting bowl.

Back again at TONKIN! We’ve made it a point to get something new each time, and this round it was the Spicy Seafood Vermicelli. For the price, we didn’t expect to be served with a variety of prawns, scallops and cuttlefish! Wouldn’t say they were the freshest, but they were very commendable for its price point. The appetising sweet-savoury broth packed a good heat, while the vermicelli has a good bite. Will be getting this again next time!

Can’t say this enough but we’ve always enjoyed this underrated spot, and hope more people try them out. It’s value for money on its original price tag - even more so if you’re on Burpple Beyond as they have their mains for one-for-one.

Extensive menu here at Go Noodle House, we ended up taking quite a while to decide what to get! Couldn’t miss the bursting pork meatballs since it’s their signature. We got it in their classic superior soup and topped up $3.50 for the homemade fish paste. Liked how customisable the menu is - noodles are a choice between mi xian and beehoon, while the broth is between superior soup and homemade spicy soup. Pick a main topping and you can further add on up to 3 more if you’d like.

The superior fish bone broth is served with a small cup of Chinese wine. We tasted the original before adding it in and we liked how it elevated the clear, comforting broth. Though the meatballs weren’t exactly ‘bursting’, they were filled with juicy and well-seasoned minced pork. Fish paste were the soft sort without any fishiness.

Mum has been a frequent customer at their Bugis stall, but it’s my first time trying! This was very impressive for its price - just $2.50 and you get a chunky piece of freshly fried fish, along with an egg and bits of pork belly, ngoh hiang and fish cake. Gravy was well seasoned, had a good consistency and wasn’t too thick. The counter has chilli, vinegar and minced garlic for you to add too based on your preference. Star of the bowl was the crunchy, tender and meaty piece of fried fish, so would definitely top up 50 cents more for their Fried Fish Lor Mee ($3) for more fish next time!

Last had Honguo many years ago and I think I remember a creamier and more flavourful broth back then. You get to choose among the 9 ($9.20), 12 ($10.20) or 15 items like this to go along with the noodles.

Jin Xin has my favourite Teh C Siew Dai around the area and their mains are pretty good too. They have a huge range from fish soup to char siew rice and ban mian. Their wanton mee has springy noodles (the less floury kind) with slices of char siew and 3 wantons! Not amazing but it’s a good affordable bowl, though the consistency may differ depending on who’s cooking. Jin Xin’s a stand alone shop just down the stretch from the bigger coffee shop.
