We always feel like Golden Mile Food Centre has more to offer than we can ever finish eating, and it is in a location we hardly get to. But Siew heard about Fishball Story and wanted to bring me to have a fishball noodle breakfast.
Of course I said yes. We ordered two bowls of fishball noodles – one with soup and one dry. For S$3.50 each, you get a big bowl that could fill you up even if it were lunchtime. The hawkers involved are young people in their twenties, and we are just incredibly lucky that they decided to do this. People rave about the fishballs (the bounce! the nostalgic taste!) and the fish cakes, and rightly so. I love the fish cakes that have cut chilli and scallion mixed in. But most of all, I love the soup. It is sweet, and tastes very much like the ones I used to have in Ghim Moh when I was a young child.
While walking to the food centre, we passed by Sembawang Confectionery and our eyes lit up at the cream cakes. I chose the watermelon one because it had the maximum amount of jam. I like to have something cut through the denseness of the cream. But I needn’t have worried. The cream on top and in between the layers were of the correct thickness.
We also bought the coconut tart, marble cake and otah bun. Everything was good. And because the cream cake has to be refrigerated after it leaves the shop, we decided we would have to eat it up. So at the food centre, we unpacked the cake and had it with a cup of kopi-o (black coffee).
It was a perfect meal.
Fishball Story is at #01-85, Golden Mile Food Centre, 505 Beach Road, Singapore. Sembawang Confectionery is at Block 6 Beach Road, #01-4869, Singapore. Parking can be hard to find right around the food centre, but you might have better luck if you park at the car park assigned to blocks 3 and 4, which is accessed via Crawford Street.
