Teochew Fish Ball Noodle (潮州魚圓粿條麵), Crawford Lane

Teochew Fish Ball Noodle - crawford stall

I've come across the menion of this stall (Wiseng Food Place, 462 Crawford Lane) a number of times. Curiosity got the better of me and I came by for breakfast. There isn't a name for the stall beyond a sign which indicates what they sell and the portions they serve their noodles. Nothing else to be ordered here as far as I can tell. The queue was sparse before 9am so if one was looking to avoid them, you have been told what a good time is to be here.

I got the mee pok. It's not bad. Noodles weren't clumped together or overly soggy, coated with a sheen of oil (lard!). The toppings were generic plus orange fish cakes I don't often see. Chilli was pretty good. There're toppings of fried lard and chopped garlic added after the bowl was assembled. I'd put this bowl as savoury and a little spicy. Can see myself eating this with regularity if only I was nearby often enough.
