Tiong Bahru Fishball : Oldies but still Goodies

This is one of the original stalls from the Seng Poh Road Market that was shut down in 2004 and they relocated to the Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre in 2006. It was founded by Mr Loh since 1962 and they have been around for more than 5 decades serving homestyle fishballs made from Wolf Herring fish, commonly known as Ikan Parang or Sai Tor Her using their family recipe. 

Other than the fried fishballs, there are also mixed vegetable chilli balls, otah, fried beancurd roll with fishpaste, flat ngor hiang, cuttlefish ball, fish roll, fried tofu with fish paste and so on. Some of the popular items are usually sold out quite early. You are to select what you want first then handed over to the Uncle, it will then be re-fried and cut it up nicely and presented on disposable place with a bowl of chilli. 

This is also the place to go when you need to bring something to be shared at a potluck party.
