Ah Ter Teochew Fish Ball Noodles – Hawker Hunk Cooks Good BCM
While looking for some great bak chor mee stalls around our little red dot, I was recommended to try Ah Ter Teochew Fishball Noodles in Amoy Street Food Centre. A trader turn hawker, Gilbert took over his father (Ah Ter) business. What’s more interesting is, Gilbert is voted as the Most Handsome Hawker in 2005 by The Straits Times. Even after so many years, he hasn’t lost a single bit of his charisma.
Even though their signboard states “fish ball noodle”, I think the “star” is that solid bowl of soup. For $5, you get a bowl full of ingredients such as a prawn, pork slices, kidney slices, liver, fish cake slices and lots of fresh minced meat.
I decided to order mee kia which was springy and smooth, well coated with chilli sauce (the mee pok is decent too). They made their chilli with good quality dried shrimps, onions and prawn paste and cook it for 6 hours with continuous stirring. Perhaps that’s the reason why his arms are so muscular!
Every mouthful of noodles, when paired with the ingredients from the soup, is a perfect combination. The minced pork that were floating on cloudy broth makes it more enticing. And the slices of pork liver are well-cooked. It is quite crazy during lunch, but I don’t mind standing in the queue to watch a hunk toss the noodles. If you want to skip the queue, head there after 2pm.
