This is my absolute favorite fishball noodles. And it's SO important to ask for extra chili. This fragrant and spicy sambal chili elevates the humble fishball mee pok to manna from heaven. The flavorful soup is another big plus.
Since this is my ultimate number one, I need to review this right. A little background: I first chanced upon this heavenly bowl in Bukit Batok 12 years ago. I fell deeply in love and carried on a love affair with the fishballs for a few years. But the stall closed when the owner uncle sustained an injury. So I was on fishball noodle drought for a few miserable months. Then hubby had a bowl at Ghim moh that tasted eerily similar. After getting to know the owner, he was told that the Bukit Batok one was operated by his brother and another brother helms a stall at Holland Drive. Another few months passed and we happened to watch an episode of Makansutra featuring the stall in Holland Drive. So we went to try that weekend. And Poof! We saw a glimpse of heaven at our first bite. This one has an exceptional chili sauce that is superior to the other two. Subsequently the Bukit Batok stall was reopened by owner's son, but the chili was even more different than before cos he tweaked the recipe. We became regulars at the Holland Drive stall and uncle happily told us his daughter was going to open a stall at Old Airport Road and carry on the proud family tradition. We went to support one Sunday and found uncle there helping out! Such lovely family love. I'm so in love with the chili that uncle sold me some. An honour only for loyal customers! Now I still frequent this Old Airport Road stall but I don't see uncle or his daughter anymore.
Fishball mee pok with extra chili, I will love you my whole life.
Got this from the stall selling buns and other pastries at the market — was first introduced to this by fellow Burppler Eileen Ong some time back. Texturally, the pastry is similar to the Chinese Wife Biscuits; a little crusty but not entirely flaky and carries a bite. Inside though, it's well-filled with yam paste; earthy, creamy and smooth without being overly sweet — it's pretty irresistible.
PS: According to the folks at the stall, the pastry is supplied from a main kitchen elsewhere and it's not available everyday (I have tried looking for it with mostly failed attempts). That being said, you would most probably be in luck finding this on Friday during mid-day, and they would probably have stock even up till Saturday (hadn't tried looking for it in a Sunday though); good luck!
don't sleep .

Ordered the all-in-one bowl, cost 28.90. Alittle pricey for a coffeeshop but portion is huge. They are generous with the ingredients, the meat were not soggy despite the sauce. Very good.
Portion alittle small for $8 but quality is up there. I guess every dollar counts 👍🏻4/5

Many food stalls at Timbre+ but this deep dish pizza caught my attention and calories. There are a whole lot of ingredients in the Fat Samurai (SGD9) like duck confit and bacon but honestly you can't really taste the individual ingredients. As a whole, the combination is still pretty good and I think it is a decent food option at Timbre+.
