One of my favourite hawker gems closer to the north of SG โ€” Ding Ji is a famous teochew noodle stall where the noodles aren't the actual star. Yep that's right, the real showstopper at this hawker is actually the soup that comes with their ๐—ฆ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ก๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐—น๐—ฒ ($5, $8 with fish maw)

Each bowl is an ocean of richness, a treasure trove of ingredients, and running your spoon through it is like churning up tidal waves brimming with indulgence. One moment there're sightings of soft gelatinous fish maw chunks. The next, wisps of umami seaweed swim onto your spoon. Eventually, you'd be slowly fishing out more and more well-cooked parts, like meatballs and pork liver, to never ending bewilderment.

But really, the essence of the soup is in itself โ€” there's no greater warmth than slurping down the wholesome elixir, enriched from being clouded with porky particles while tinged with the vibrant sweetness of Goji berries.
