[CLOSED] Yan Kee Noodle House – Fish Ball or Ping Pong Ball?

In the search of the best Fish Ball Noodle in Singapore, we come across Yan Kee Noodle House. One of the establishment that can claim open 24 hours!!! Best part of all, it is located in the Central of Singapore, corner of South Bridge Road and Circular Road. So if you are looking for supper places after your pubbing, clubbing or anything, isn't this the place to go.

Our visit to this place was on Saturday afternoon, a little hungry, I ordered the Big Size version of dry Fish Ball Noodle ($5), no chilli. Little Devil has the small version ($3.50), dry and with chilli plus another bowl of Fish Ball Soup ($3.50).

Mee Kia dry Fish Ball Noodle - Big no chilli

For the big size, I can say it is quite huge. The noodle texture is a bit soft and stick to each other. I need to use the soup to loosen up the noodle. The ingredients such as mince pork and noodle is very generous. So far, I was not impress with my noodle until I tasted the fishball. The size is huge, almost the same size as ping pong ball. You can see that it is handmade and bouncy. Very good although they can be quite generous with salt in the fishball.

Check out the Ping Pong Size Handmade Fishball!!

LD's spicy version of the noodle is much better. The chilli is aromatic and blended with pork lard. It is not a full blown spicy, however more of spicy fragrant layered sambal version. They also have ikan bilis topping for the noodle. Although I am not a chilli eater, I must admit the chilli version is better.

To show that we can bit a little bit Gong at times, we did not notice their speciality is their Dry Mee Sua. If I know this, I would have ordered it. Service is limited to delivering the food. You must order and pay at stall.

Overall, Yan Kee served a very good homemade fish ball noodle. We'll definitely comeback to try out their Dry Mee Sua. Noodle starting from $3.50 per bowl. Cheers!!

  1. the standard of te noodle already dropped tremendously compare to last few years. Maybe started to 偷工减料. All workers change to foreigner workers, could not master the real skill.

    1. Hi & Thanks for the comment.

      I have to disagree with you though. I was there last week and the standard is still there.

  2. There's a yan kee stall at maxwell food centre. Is it the same as the one at south bridge road ?

    1. Hi Anonymous, from the photos they look about the same. I'll keep an eye on this and update this post in the future. Thanks for he comment.
