I first get to know Fishball Story when I worked with Douglas for the Ultimate Hawker Fest 2014. Located previously at Golden Mile Food Centre, Fishball Story has now moved into NUS UTown at Stephen Riady Center, Level 2 Foodclique. It is actually quite easy to spot the stall, just go to where the longest queue is.

Many would ask what make the fishball noodle at Fishball Story so special? Douglas, 26 years old this year makes his fish balls and fish cakes from scratch using yellow tail fish only. His usual day starts from 4am to make the fish balls and fish cakes, even the sambal chilli and pork lard. I mean who at this age or his generation is willing to do this nowadays.

The Fishball Noodle is priced at $3 for NUS student and $3.50 for Public. While the firm and bouncy fish balls and fish cakes are outstanding, I was hoping that the sambal chilli would have more kick to it.
Borrowing a paragraph from my previous post on Fishball Story. I continued to admire Douglas's hard work and dedication to provide the best quality in his fishball noodle. It is hard to find or even name such stalls nowadays with factory made fish balls readily availability and even at a lower cost. The fishball noodle at Fishball Story is definitely worthy for a visit and we have to give these young hawkers the due encouragement or we will slowly lose the hawker heritage in Singapore.
