Fishball Story 鱼缘 (Golden Mile Food Centre)

Fishball Noodles (Mee Pok) $3.50
Fishball Story 鱼缘 is a hawker stall manned by a young hawker, Douglas Ng, 24, specialising in serving fishball noodles. The stall is located at level one of Golden Mile Hawker Centre at Lavendar. 

So what is so unique about Fishball Story other than the fact that it is manned by a 'young hawker'? Or in marketing terms, its called USP (Unique Selling Point). Well, unlike other (most) fishball stalls, the fishballs and chilli-scallion fishcakes are all handmade! He would arrive as early as 4am to blend the fish paste. The fishballs are made entirely from yellow tail fish with no flour.
 In case you are wondering, the queue here is short. The most number of people i have seen queuing here is around 5. Sometimes, there is no queue.

I ordered Mee Pok Fishball Noodles (dry) $3.50.
Fishball Noodles (Mee Pok) $3.50
It comes fishballs, chilli-scallion fishcakes, fish dumpling (herh qiao), mee pok, pork lard, shallots, lettuce and sambal chilli sauce!

What was fantastic to me was the mee pok and the sambal chilli sauce. The mee pok was cooked perfectly; just nice! As for the sambal chilli sauce which was cooked with hae bi (dried shrimps), it was so fragrant and addictive; outstanding! When mixed with the noodles, it complemented the noodles perfectly; lip smacking! Just the noodles and the sambal chilli sauce itself would suffice for me!

Frankly speaking, when I first tried the handmade fishballs, I was surprised. I did not like the initial taste. The exterior of the fishball was firm, but the interior was tough, not bouncy and not spongy. I am probably too used to factory made fishballs and was not used to this version of handmade fishballs with no flour.

I went back again two weeks later as I really missed the noodles and sambal chilli noodles (no joke!). It was still as good. This time I got used to the fishballs and enjoyed them more. This is a case of the more you have it the more you will love it.

I can forsee myself coming back for more fishball noodles (especially the sambal chilli)! Going to rate this as a die die must try!
