Seen and heard of the best local Singaporean food
Springy, bouncy and chewy fishball noodles are a local favourite but it is not easy to find a good one.
Fishball noodles is a common lunch or dinner food amongst Singaporeans but what sets a truly excellent bowl of fishball noodles apart from one that is mediocre lies in the springy fishballs themselves.
Here are a few stalls to check out over the weekend.
Song Kee Fishball Noodle
The fishballs here are handmade, which results in a springy texture with adequate taste. The chilli at this stall has buah keluak added to it! This gives it a richer, tastier flavour and the noodles come with a generous amount of shallots and lard.

Yong Kee Fishball Noodle
Apart from springy and bouncy fishballs, this stall also sells meatballs made of fish and pork.
