面对面 - Just Noodles

Thanks for waiting patiently for yet another Just Noodles Review(:
*Note: All are my personal review and some are quotes from the show itself or from I-Weekly

Today's stop (second stop), i'm introducing 鱼圆面 as known as fishball noodles
Here's a little background of the orgins of fishball noodle:
It is said that in the past, Qin Shi Wang loves to eat fish and his chef use the fish to create into a variety of fish dishes which include fishballs.
Qin Shi Wang complimented on the fishballs and slowly pass among the citizen.
Ancestors brought the fishball over to Singapore and slowly became fishball noodle after a few modification by adding noodles.

Here's the actual speech from the show, Just Noodles -
据说秦始王爱吃鱼圆, 御厨将鱼制成鱼丸,

Let's not make you wait for long
Here's my 3reviews from 3different places(:

The first stop is located at Blk 75, Toa Payoh Lorong 5 #01-354 - 松记粿条汤
Firstly, i have to WARN you, if you can afford to queue up and for at least 30minutes for your lunch then you definitely can go over to try.
If not, better DON'T
Cause i remembered i waited for approximate 30minutes.
The queue is super horrendous.
See for yourself:

The highlight of this stall is that the soup is very sweet,
full of lard residue and 冬菜 to enhance the flavor of the soup.
The main actor is definitely the fishball - its very Q and very chewy as the boss woke up early just to make the fishball ALL BY HIMSELF.

If you're not a fan of factory fishball,
you can come over to try it(:

The stall is closed on every wednesday
Operating hours: 11am - 12midnight

Next stop is located at Blk 38 Beo Crescent Market #01-68 - 南园鱼圆面
Th highlight of this stall is that it's the CHEAPEST fishball noodles you can ever find in Singapore - Cost $2/bowl

My verdict is that not only was it CHEAP but the soup was flavouring too.
What i like is that, the boss didn't add in lard residue nor 冬菜 in the noodles but a few chopped green onions.
The fishball is bought from the factory as it does not seems very chewy like the first stall but the soup is definitely a BOUNS mark(:

If you're thinking of where to park your car,
not to worry there is a total of 3-4 multi-storey carparks surrounding the food market so you won't have to rush your food or illegally park your car on the side of the road.

The stall is closed on every Thursday and Friday.
Operating hours: 6am - 1pm

Last stop of the day is located at Blk 505 Beach Road, Golden Mile Food Centre #B1-47 - 黄金潮州鱼圆面

This stall is TOP1 under the fishball noodle category.
At first, when the noodle arrived, i can't find what 'item' makes it Top1 for consumers.
After a sip of the soup, i realised that the soup also have a bit of 冬菜, not as much as compared to the first stall.
Another thing which i find it 'surprising' is that they add in char siew, 1 meatball and 2fishballs into the noodles.

I guess, probably due to the 'awesome' ingredients, that why's its Top1 for the OLs and working people ??!!
If you're a fan of 粿条, you really cant miss this stall.
I don't know why but the 粿条 tastes super yummy as compared to the yellow noodles which i would normally ordered for noodle based dishes.

Operating hours: 8am - 9.30pm

And now, to sum up all these 3yummy stalls(:
Noodles that i adored: All are taste the same but if i really have to choose one i may choose 南园鱼圆面 - the noodle is full of elasticity
Main actor, Fishball: 松记粿条汤
Soup: 南园鱼圆面

Overall, the WINNER for Fishball is 南园鱼圆面
Not only was it the cheapest but the uncle really cooked every dishes with his heart.
You can observe his cooking skills and expression when you're waiting/queuing up.
