For Fresh and Bouncy Fishballs The Tastemakers tasted a dozen dishes on their outing, but for many, the fishballs and fishcakes from this stall are one of their favourite finds. This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill, factory made fishballs. According to Tastemaker Casey Tan, the Teochew stall owners use fresh ikan parang (wolf herring) in their fish paste, resulting in a lovely "Q-ness" that Tastemaker Julius Lim loves. Prices range from 50 cents to $4 — do get the otah fishcake and tofu cheesecake! Everything is fried on the spot and served steaming hot with a piquant chili sauce on the side. The variety can be staggering, so it might be wise to take Tastemaker Julius' advice to have the stall-owners pick out a selection for you.

The one stall that eluded me the last time when I visited Tiong Bahru Market (it was closed) and this time round it shot right up to my most anticipated list prior to joining the Burpple Tastemakers to uncover the gems in this hawker centre. Fortunately, the stall was opened that day and I made a beeline for it, ordering a variety of fishballs and fishcakes that amounted to $7, which was absolutely well worth it. • As you walk towards the stall, it is like a shining beacon of fishball heaven that you will not regret ordering. With many varieties available, your best bet would be to just ask the stall-owners to pick a mixture for you. Made from fresh fish paste, you will experience the “Q”-ness from each bite and the flavours from each bite is just pure bliss. _________________ Tiong Bahru Fishballs Address: 30, Seng Poh Road, Tiong Bahru Market & Food Centre, Unit 02-20, Singapore 168898 #BurppleTiongBahruMarket

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to join several Burpple tastemakers at Tiong Bahru Market. After going through a dozen dishes (literally), there were many who thoroughly enjoyed the assorted fishballs from Tiong Bahru Fishballs (#02-20), myself included. • Costing from 50 cents to $4 and founded since 1962, the Teochew hawkers use fresh Ikan Parang (Wolf Herring) in their fish paste and you can immediately tell that it’s not just some run of the mill factory made fish balls. Everything was fried on the spot, served steaming hot and you don’t have any “re-used oil” fragrance. They served a piquant chili sauce as an accompaniment, however, I personally preferred having it on its own. • While obviously not the most balanced thing to have as a meal, it’s a great snack when feeling peckish. #burppletiongbahrumarket

Excellent Balls The Burpple guide for Tiong Bahru mkt alerted me to this BCM. I asked for extra chili and added meat balls. I liked the look of it. Lots of liao covering the noodles. One of the better BCM around, and I loved the pork lard. The chili could be spicier thou. I will ask for more vinegar next time. Quite a substantial bowl of noodles. Be careful not to spill the delicious meat juice when biting into the meatballs. Soooo gooood! I wanted more. Soup was flavorful, thou there was a layer of oil on top. I finished it anyway.

Bak Chor Mee ($3) + $1 For The Meatballs Everyone probably has had their fair share of BCM, but the one from Tiong Bahru Bak Chor Mee is one that you should try too! With just the right balance between vinegar & sauce, the springy noodles are gently tossed together before being topped up with minced pork, sliced liver, sliced lean pork and if you'd like, meatballs too. The combination of everything together in a mouthful is flavourful & the meatballs come with a surprise center - a saltier but juicy mixture of meat, which as Emily would say, is her favourite type of balls. #BurppleTiongBahruMarket

For Bak Chor Mee and Winning Meatballs Tastemaker Emily S loves the Bak Chor Mee ($3) here, and it's easy to see why. Let's start with the basics. The stall owner is generous with the vinegar, and the chilli packs just the right amount of heat. This provides the perfect canvas for the generous amount of ingredients, which includes sliced and minced pork, mushrooms and greens. Their claim to fame however are the homemade meatballs ($1 for a pair); make sure to add these on! Tastemaker Emily describes the meatballs to explode with flavours once you sink your teeth in, thanks to the filling of juicy minced pork. We're sold!
