Ho Jia Bo? Fishball Minced Meat Noodle @MacPherson Food Centre 好吃吗？鱼圆肉胜面
“Ho Jia Bo?”, a question in Hokkien which means “Is it nice?”
The lady boss manning the stall never fails to keep a smile all the time and her friendliness brightened our day.
Besides the fishball noodles, Ho Jia Bo offers local laksa as well but with limited stomach capacity, we can only focus on the fishball noodle.
The dried mee pok was served in a colourful Peranakan bowl, with nicely cooked noodles. However the sauce, especially the chilli was insufficient to heighten the overall flavour. We had to ask for extra chilli sauce to perk up the rather insipid bowl of noodle,. Otherwise, we have no qualms about the texture and quality of the noodle.
Fishballs were springy and chewy, with no excessive flour added.
The soup is something worth mentioning here. It was full of goodness with the perfect touch of sweetness, and taste is just spot on. Deserving of two thumbs up.
The soup is tantalizing and we would assume that the soupy version of noodle is better compared to the dry version which needs some extra seasoning for a better taste. Ho Jia Bo? Yes, Chin Ho Jia.
