After going through a dozen dishes (literally), there were many who thoroughly enjoyed the assorted fishballs from Tiong Bahru Fishballs (#02-20), myself included.

Costing from 50 cents to $4 and founded since 1962, the Teochew hawkers use fresh Ikan Parang (Wolf Herring) in their fish paste and you can immediately tell that it’s not just some run of the mill factory made fish balls. Everything was fried on the spot, served steaming hot and you don’t have any “re-used oil” fragrance. They served a piquant chili sauce as an accompaniment, however, I personally preferred having it on its own.

While obviously not the most balanced thing to have as a meal, it’s a great snack when feeling peckish. #burppletiongbahrumarket
