Sin Song Kee - Handmade Fish Balls, Meat Balls and Fish Dumpling Noodles @ The Star Vista [Singapore] #sinsongkeenoodle

Song Kee was supposed to be some famous noodle shop that used to be along Upper Serangoon Road but this Sin Song Kee at Star Vista mall appeared to be a separate stall with origins in Toa Payoh Lorong 5. 

Whatever the case, my colleagues commented that the non-air-conditioned eatery seemed to be quite popular and since it's noodle-craving day; i guess it's appropriate for us to give it a try! 

Order from the counter, pay for your meal, get the pager and wait for the number to appear on the LED screen before you walk over to the "collection" sector to collect the finished product. 

My signature noodle (mee pok) with "handmade fishball, meatball, fish dumpling and minced pork". There's supposed to be beancurd dumpling which i guess was out of stock; hence a replacement with an extra fish ball. 

The amount of shredded lettuce topping the noodles could be quite off-putting but i actually enjoyed the extra fresh bite which complemented the dish instead of being mere decorations. Do note that ketchup wasn't an option and i opted to have chilli for my noodle instead.

As a whole, i liked that the noodles were not too oily and although harder in texture; they retained a good level of satisfaction with a nice vinegar aroma. The handmade fishballs weren't exceptional and lack the QQ texture that some stalls (like Li Xin) were renowned for. Much higher marks were given to the delicious meatballs (with specks of chilli) and the juicy dumpling! 

Notice the empty bowl of soup?! Usually bland tasting and not worth a trip down my throat, i found the one at Sin Song Kee to be highly palatable; to the extent i might just opt for fishball soup with no noodle if i decide to have a somewhat healthier meal.
