10 Fishball Noodles 鱼丸面 stalls to try in Singapore!


Fishball Noodles or 鱼丸面 is a breakfast or lunch staple for Singaporeans. This can be found in hawker centers, coffee shops, some even have their standalone stalls. It is essentially springy noodles with fishball, fishcakes tossed in their sauce. Some with chili or vinegar or both. If you don't want chili, there's an option to have it with ketchup and soy sauce.

I prefer to have the fishball handmade than machine-made though. How about you? 


1) Chao Zhou Fishball noodle 潮洲魚丸粿條面

The fishballs at Chao Zhou Fishball noodle are seriously so good!! Expect "boing boing" and soft textured fish ball. 5 is not enough! hahaha

Aside from the awesome fish ball, I also had dry mee pok tossed in chili sauce. This stall is probably the most famous fishball noodle in Lorong 7. Super long queue for this fish ball from morning onwards.

2) Ming Fa Fishball 明发鱼圆

We had the Bak Chor Mee with extra fu zhou fish balls and fried fish cakes. The springy noodles were tossed in vinegar and chili sauce giving the bowl of noodles a vinegary and mild spice taste. The fu zhou fish balls was bouncy and soft with a savory pork center. Nothing beats having a hearty bowl of noodles for breakfast!

Their handmade fishballs albeit medium-sized were fresh and springy. We ordered the mee kia soup and mee pok dry with chili. The mee pok dry was coated in their sauce and packed a punch with their homemade chili sauce.

4) 135 Fishball Noodles 135 鱼圆面

A bowl of kway teow and noodles with perfect succulent bouncy fish balls. I think this would taste better with chili but I don't eat those. This one really lives up to its name on having one of the best fishball noodles in Singapore. I wouldn't recommend people to come down especially for this though.

5) Li Na Fishball Noodle 丽娜鱼圆面

Getting my Fishball noodle cravings fixed at Li Na Fishball Noodle 丽娜鱼圆面! Felt that the sauce is quite average though. We ordered the mee kia and kway teow noodles which came with generous ingredients which consisted of minced pork, pork slices, fishballs, fish cake, meatball, and minced mushrooms. They do not handmade their fishball, but it is not too bad la. It’s so different here as it’s open by an interracial couple with the Indian guy doing the cooking.

6) Hong Xing Handmade Fishball • Meatball Noodle

Nothing beats soft tender fishball with natural fish sweetness!  Fyi they're handmade and it shows in the irregularity of size in their fishballs. 
I will usually order kway teow noodles and these were just tossed with soy sauce and pork lard but they're so good! Some will find it too bland, but this is okay for me.

7) Yam Mee Teochew Fishball Noodles

Yam Mee Teochew Fishball Noodles is located at Kovan 209 Market & Food Centre. They have been operating since the 1970s. It's not difficult to spot this stall as they are operating in 2 stalls side by side and the longer queues than other stalls. Although the queue is long, it moves quite fast!

The handmade fishballs were bouncy and sweet. This comes generously with 3 fish balls, 1 vegetable ball, mushrooms, minced meat, and fish cakes.

Fishball story started in 2014 and made was awarded the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2016. Quite a feat with only 2 years of experience. 

I ordered the Supreme Fishball noodles at Fish Ball Story. I was attracted by the braised abalone, and this also comes with premium prawn balls and mushroom chicken balls, fish cakes, and crispy beancurd skin wrapped with fish meat. Their fishball and fish cakes are made with yellowtail fish and were fresh, springy, and sweet.
