Think this stall is also managed by the same people of Xiang Xiang Cooked Food just next door. They sell economic noodles too, but their ytf laksa seemed most popular! It was a good old school bowl, with a number of ytf pieces that were generously filled. Topped up a fishcake to go along - can’t remember the actual cost but it’s less than a dollar. Tasty and very value for money!

Because my usual staple Top 1 is closed on Wednesdays, I went around looking for another lunch option. 😂 The cooling weather made it easy to go with this bkt! Mee sua portion could be a little bigger, but they were generous with the slices of meat and tender pork livers. Broth was flavourful, hearty and was of a slightly thicker consistency than the usual clear soups. Stall owners were super friendly!

Huge bouncy fishballs that were fresh with good texture! The soup was most distinctly flavoured with a generous portion of dong cai (preserved vegetables) - not my favourite kind but still tasty.

Highlight here was definitely the soup, it was ‘prawny’ and umami with a distinct amount of pepper. Prawns were pretty fresh and ribs were tender. We had the dry noodles and while the heat was there, it was a little too oily. Would probably go with the soup version instead next time!

Make sure you clearly request for a $4 portion if you want the default size - we didn’t and ended up with the $5 bowl. Unfortunately, it was a pretty mediocre bowl. ☹️ Portion wasn’t big despite the top up, while the unseasoned fish slices had a hint of fishiness and weren’t tender. The milky broth was decently comforting.

I love har cheong gai and have been hearing so much about Ah Tan Wings! We went with just the wings, but they also sell them as a meal with 2 wings, rice and a fried egg at $5.20. Perhaps our batch was a little over fried, as while we enjoyed the crispy batter, the meat was a touch dry.

Don’t have to worry about picking your ytf ingredients, because each bowl comes in a standard mix of fishballs, beancurds, fried beancurds and beancurd rolls. Liked that there’s a good amount of soybeans given but would have liked more fish paste filling in each of the stuffed pieces. The clear broth made with anchovies and soy beans was lightly sweetened, and was quite a good complement to the heavier seasoned ytf pieces. My fav old school ytf bowl is still hands down Xiu Ji Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Fu’s!

A value for money bowl for what it’s served with! $3 and you get fishcakes, 3 fishballs, pork slices and a fish dumpling. Soup was bland, but the noodles were springy and tossed in a nice ketchup-chilli mix. Their queue moves rather slowly, so you might not want to get this if you’re having a quick lunch.

Was only 10am but their Fish & Lala Combo ($4) was already sold out 😱 Went with the chicken one since it’s not quite a common option you’ll see at other handmade noodles stalls. The chicken chunks themselves were tender but a little bland, so it’s best to coat them evenly when tossing your noodles in the black sauce and chili. Noodles were springy and q, while the black sauce wasn’t too sweet. Soup was comforting. Was a nice bowl!

Came by around 10.15am since their char siew was only ready around 10am. Was in the queue for 40 minutes before finally getting a plate and I’m glad to say it was worth it! Fei Fei’s char siew chunks are not the fatty sort, but had a good bite with a shiok caramelised exterior. Roasted duck was pretty good too, while the noodles were springy with a good bite. Wantons and its soup was seasoned nicely, and the wanton fillings were juicy. Fei Fei is definitely a stall that has every component on the plate done well!

Ps. We went back hoping to get another plate of Char Siew Noodle ($3.50), but it ran out and it was only 11.45am! 😭 If you’re traveling down, make sure to drop by earlier.

Liked their Char Siew most, but the roast pork’s good too! Skin’s crispy and the meat is marinated well without being too salty.

A simple bowl of noodles tossed up in lard, chilli and topped with some minced pork. Personally would have preferred a better bite but it was still a tasty alternative to rice!
