Since before 1974, hawker Lin Yuliang has been selling this dish, at times hand-making up to 3,000 fish balls a day.
.
Firm with an al-dente chew, the mee pok / wide flat egg noodles picks up the rich gravy well, bursting with savoury salty spicy flavour.
.
The fish balls and fish cake are wonderfully springy with a juicy bite, and light sweet salty notes. Completed with crisp spring onions for vegetal sweet herbal flavour.

There are a lot of other stalls bearing their name, but the originator is the hawker at Toa Payoh, with other related stalls run by family or relatives.
.
Hand made and rustic, their fish balls are lightly bouncy with mild salty sweet savoury flavour, and the fish paste stuffed beancurd skin is spongy soft with grainy sweet salty notes.
.
The noodles are softly springy, generously portioned, picking up the savoury spicy sour salty flavours of the gravy nicely.
.
The her giao / fish dumpling is chewy and slippery, with pleasant meaty fishy sweet flavour.
.
The originator usually goes full flavoured, while the related stalls have more balance overall.

There are 2 strong points for their rendition of this dish.
.
The righteous gravy, with a good amount of black vinegar, tingles the palate and lends depth.
.
The extra large and springy juicy fish balls, mildly sweet savoury in taste, are so satisfying.

Love the rendition here, because of the generous ingredients and punchy gravy.
.
Their fish balls are lightly springy, with mild sweet savoury flavour, actually decent, nothing to shout about.
.
What stands out is the fish cake. The star ingredient, the fish cake is large and thick cut, with a succulent chew and medium savoury sweet salty flavour. I like to order additional slices.
.
The base mee pok / wide flat egg noodles is soft, picking up the savoury salty spice flavours of the gravy well. Completed with crisp lettuce for a refreshing burst of vegetal sweet flavour.

This brand offers traditional and modern renditions, and their dry mee sua with gravy is well loved.
.
Their fish balls, while smallish, are among the most bouncy, with an incredible springy chew to texture, and mild sweet savoury flavour.

The broth is light, with crisp lettuce and tender minced pork, resulting in a lovely meaty vegetal sweet savoury flavour.
.
I opted for mee pok / wide flat egg noodles, which had a soft chew, and picks up the gravy nicely. Has good savoury salty spice flavour.

Established in 1946 by Lim Chye Kang, this reputable brand is now in the hands of Jerome Lim, the 3rd generation owner.

They still use 100% yellowtail amberjack fish, sourced fresh daily, to make their signature fish balls and fish cake - large and bouncy soft with gentle sweet savoury flavour.
.
Each bowl is accompanied by fresh crisp lettuce with vegetal sweet flavour, over a base of chewy mee pok / wide flat egg noodles, slick with gravy that bursts with savoury salty spicy flavour.

Among the most generous-portioned renditions around.

The original owner has been quietly selling since 1968, but thanks to his son, this brand can now be found across Singapore, and serves a reliable and consistent rendition.
.
Their gravy is a winning combination of fresh pork lard, black vinegar, tomato ketchup, and chili paste, resulting in addictive sweet salty sour savoury flavours, coating each noodle strand.
.
Their fish cake and fish balls are made with fresh yellowtail amberjack fish, no fillers, meaning a smaller size but more springy chew, with light sweet savoury flavour.
.
The succulent her giao / fish dumpling is slippery with sweet savoury notes, while the unique fish roll stuffed with carrot and cucumber has a visual appeal.
.
A garnish of crisp spring onions with vegetal sweet flavour completes this addictive dish.

A literal handful of bean sprouts and crisp spring onions lend vegetal sweet herbal notes, and a satisfying crunch.

Convoluted history aside, this famed brand is amongst the pricier options, though you receive a generous portion and fresh ingredients, making it worthwhile. Expect queues during lunch.
.
The fish balls and fish cake have a light springy chew with mild sweet savoury salty flavour. The mee pok / wide flat egg noodles have a soft texture, and the gravy is decent with savoury spicy notes.
.
What I love is the generous tender minced pork and fresh pork slices, lending meaty sweet salty flavour. And the fresh deshelled prawns which are juicy and sweet savoury.

Old-school and no-frills, this under-the-radar stall has been quietly serving since the 1970s.

The fish balls and fish cake are properly springy with mild sweet savoury flavour, while the sliced pork is tender with a light chew and meaty sweet flavour.

No frills and straightforward, this decades-old stall draws queues for their hand made fish balls.
.
With a springy bounce to texture, their fish balls are mildly savoury sweet in flavour, while the soup has strong vegetal salty sweet notes from crunchy preserved radish and fresh crisp lettuce.
.
The mee pok / wide flat egg noodles tend towards being softer in texture, but pick up the slick gravy of pork lard and chili well, savoury salty spicy in taste.
