Fishball Noodles (鱼圆面) @ Xiang Xiang (香香), Chong Pang, Yishun

I am very picky with fishball noodles!

Coming from a person who is very simplistic when it comes to food (good, average or bad), you can imagine the high regard i have when it comes to fishball noodles.

Since my primary school days (heck, that's twenty years ago!), this has been the one and only fishball noodles stall i patronise again and again and again.

The Noodles
I once sat at a table with a complete stranger who was left with no choice but just a bowl of noodles without fish balls (I had the last one in my mouth then).

She was so pleased with it although it was just noodles with a generous serving of bean sprouts and a few pieces of pork lard (my beloved)!

This incident greatly endorsed why i love the noodles so much more than the fish balls!

This is also one of the rare moments i will have mee pok instead of the more common mee kia.

The Fishballs
Xiang Xiang used to have them handmade and they were 20-30% bigger in size then. During the Chinese New Year season, you will see the employees pushing out trolleys of them for sale!

The balls were still good and at only S$2.50 for a bowl of noodles with five fishballs, i thought it was still worth it.

The morning long wait (sometimes more than 30 minutes) on weekends is usually a big turnoff and, before last Saturday, it's been more than half a year since i last had a bowl of fishball noodles from Xiang Xiang (香香鱼圆面).

With so many gems hidden in Singapore's numerous hawker centres, i need some time loads of time to slowly satisfy the uncountable cravings within me.

Additional Information
Two pieces of helpful hints.

One: Always mix the noodles well!!
The above is the result of an expert mix!

Two: Never, ever order takeaway!
The noodles will be hard, soggy and incredibly different from their otherwise delicious state when you have it fresh and hot!
