Food Haunt That Needs No Accreditation

Located in the newly-renovated Cambridge Food Centre at the corner of Owen and Cambridge road is this noodle stall that needs no recommendation by food columnists, media, and the likes.

This is one of the dying breed of traditional food stallholders who take pain and passion in the preparation of food for sale. Because of his failing stamina, he has taken, of late, an additional day-off. The stall is closed on Monday, Tuesday and Friday for the time being.

The waiting time on Weekends can be as long as 30 minutes. There are 2 price-points: S$2.50 and S$3.00. He does not entertain request for any top-up. He does not sell his self-prepared fishballs and fishcakes (without noodle, I mean).

I like the fishcake best. His slicing is just right for one to savour the sweetness and beyond description texture of the fishcake. The deep-fried outer layer of the fishcake is crepe-like.
