Located in a corner of a Toa Payoh coffee shop, Li Na fishball noodles has been making waves across food review sites. The reviews mostly started off with how handsome the owner is. But what we like to find out is, are their noodles any good at all?
How were the noodles?
As usual you can get mee kia (thin noodles) or mee pork (thick noodles), depending on your preference. Either noodles held the sauce mix really well, cooked nicely and not too soggy.
With a touch of black vinegar and other yummy sauces, their concoction tasted really delightful. There are bits of minced pork in every bite, and hints of tie por (dried sole fish).
How about their Her Giao 鱼饺?
You will be blown away by their fish dumplings. For a bowl of $5 signature noodles, you get one her giao and it was enough to get us hooked. It was pepperish and plump to the brim. The skin was thick and chewy, enough to wrap the generous fillings.
The other ingredients were given generously with a good mix. Some slices of fish cakes, some fishballs, good portion of minced pork, a fish dumpling, and fluffy crunchy fried pork lard.
And that is exactly what customers expect when they are paying for a $5 bowl of goodness. Yummy!
