Otah Fishcake

2 Reviews

Tried the giant big fishball which was $3.50 as seen in photo good for sharing between 3 to 4 paxs! Got the otah fishball to try as well, not spicy and the taste of the otah was very very subtle

The Tastemakers tasted a dozen dishes on their outing, but for many, the fishballs and fishcakes from this stall are one of their favourite finds. This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill, factory made fishballs. According to Tastemaker Casey Tan, the Teochew stall owners use fresh ikan parang (wolf herring) in their fish paste, resulting in a lovely "Q-ness" that Tastemaker Julius Lim loves. Prices range from 50 cents to $4 — do get the otah fishcake and tofu cheesecake! Everything is fried on the spot and served steaming hot with a piquant chili sauce on the side. The variety can be staggering, so it might be wise to take Tastemaker Julius' advice to have the stall-owners pick out a selection for you.
Avg Price: $5 per person
