Ru Ji Kitchen Holland Drive
Ru Ji kitchen Holland Drive at Old Airport Road Food Centre is one of the branches from the parent stall at Holland Drive Food Centre. They do have another stall at Redhill Food Centre. Ru Ji kitchen Holland drive received many accolades and rose to fame with their famous fishball noodles or strictly speaking, the handmade fishball and fish cake.
The noodles come at $3 / 4 / 5 with different amounts of fishballs and fish cakes in the bowl of soup.
The mee pok dry was cooked to the right doneness, however, the texture of mee pok did not have the smoothness and right elasticity that is uncharacteristic of a good quality mee pok. It may not strictly be the fault of the stall during cooking but likely the source of the mee pok.
We ordered the dried mee pok and Kway Teow soup. For the dried mee pok, the marinade sauce in the bowl of mee pok is somehow unable to excite the taste palate. The seasoning and the flavour could have been more robust and the extra chill has not made us sweat more at all. The spiciness was too tamed and mild. Seriously, we struggled to find out what makes the mee pok shine until we tried the fishball and the fish cake.
In the end, the winning formula for Ru Ji kitchen Holland drive is probably not the noodle but the handmade fish balls and fish cakes. The texture of the fishballs were fresh and springy with no taste of added flour, every fishball was packed with natural fish meat, making them one of the best around. The fishcake is highly commendable with the same high quality standard.
We hope Ru Ji kitchen Holland drive would source for a better quality mee pok and improve the seasoning sauce to enhance the flavour. Good quality fishball and fishcake requires the cooperation of the noodles to make a perfect marriage. Ru Ji kitchen Holland drive has all the capabilities to make it happen.
