This place (Hui Ji Fish Ball Noodle . Yong Tau Foo) serves one of my favourite meepok tars in Singapore, and was recommended to me by the most famous food blogger in Singapore, Leslie Tay of ieatishootipost. Too bad it only opens until 2pm every day, so I can only come on a weekend (Saturday morning) to have my meepok tar fix.
But what a good meepok tar it is! Absolutely scrumptious. The chilli has the nice savouriness about it that comes from using good hae-bi, and the balance of the chilli, the sweetness, with a bit of sour, and with the hae-bi, was just perfect. And loads of crispy hae bi at the bottom for extra flavour and crunch. The meepok was also done perfectly textured - al dente, not overcooked. I would say the noodles alone deserve (8.5/10), since you really cannot find alot of good meepok nowadays.
The yong tau foo soup that accompanied it was good as well - quite a savoury stock with a good natural sweetness about it, although it's not as flavourful as say the ones from Tanjong Pagar Food Centre and you can't choose your own ingredients. However it was competent: (7.5/10) I also loved the homemade fish balls. It was so good that I came back the next week - see the two photos for the difference between last week and this week.
My appetite has been sorely whet just thinking of this mee pok tar. Too bad today's only Monday!
