[Ceased Operation as at 30 July 2016 . . . . . . . Chubby Botak Koala and Little Devil feel SO SADDDDD]
A few months ago, Little Devil (LD) has cravings for fishball noodle. So we actively searching for the best fish ball noodle in this tiny little island. One of the places that keep popping up is Song Kee Fish Ball Noodles.
As Song Kee only open from 7pm to late night, this is actually a good place for supper for us. Before I wrote this review, we actually have re-visited this place more than 5 times.
Starting price for a fish ball noodle is from $4 for a small bowl. Normal serving small come with a tau pok with fish paste, 2 fish ball noodle and 2 fish dumpling (Yu Jiao).

The noodle is cooked just nice, al-dente with good texture of springiness. For non-chilli, it is well coated with tomato sauce and pork lard creating a smooth texture when you bite into the noodle. The fish balls are smooth, bouncy and tasty, not like other fish ball that full of flour. The fish dumplings are actually the best that I ever tried so far. It has a resilient and juicy texture about it. Yum Yum!!

For the dry with chilli version, the chilli is not overly spicy but flavourful. The soup is clear yet very robust. It has a sweetness from the long boiling of fish bones, with a subtle hint of garlic. We always order extra fish ball soup, as we can't get enough of it.

Service is adequate. You order in front, get a number, get your drink and find a seat. If the place is packed, expect to wait between 45 minutes before you get your order. Well, consider it a good time to catch up with your friends. Lets just say, the fish ball noodle here is worth the 45 minutes wait. Cheers!!!
