Hong Xing Fish Ball Noodles @ 332 Ang Mo Kio Johnson Eatery Coffee Shop

We went to BLK 332 Ang Mo Kio coffee shop, in a quiet corner of the town. It's about 15 minutes walk from Ang Mo Kio MRT station.

When I got here, I realised that the stall is an offshoot from Hong Xing Fishball at Hong Lim. A disciple of Hong Xing has opened his own stall at Bukit Merah and this is a branch of the disciple's stall (opened three months ago).

This stall is run by Jason.

I opted for mee pok which came smothered in a savoury, spicy, tangy, lardy sauce. The noodles were done soft crunchy and the sauce wasn't that robust, so I unconsciously added in a few pieces of cut chili pepper to spice things up.

There was no blanched minced pork or bak chor in the noodles, which is correct, as this is traditional fish ball noodles.

What struck me was the fish ball, pork ball and soup.

The fish balls were relatively large, light, spongy, not so dense, springy, and when broken, bursted juice and a subtle savoury sweet fish flavour in the mouth.

I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the pork balls too.

Like the fish ball, the pork ball was relatively light being a blend of pork and fish.

Same subtle fish taste but now with added porcine sweetness. There's a slight umami savouriness from tee poh too.

Also nice.

The clear soup was not short of flavour. It tastes of fish sweetness and a bit of preserved cabbage or tong chai.

A simple, old school fish ball noodle place in a quiet part of Ang Mo Kio.
