Fans of fish ball noodles might remember this place in Jalan Yap Ah Shak that's been closed a few years (refer here). Many people are really nostalgic about this place and so it's with delight that I announce that the fishball place has been reborn somewhat as a small stall in SS2.
The location is at Restoran Okay in SS2 at the opposite end of the same row of shops which Kayu Nasi Kandar is at.
As it's a small stall they don't quite sell the breadth of the varieties that they used to sell at their original stall. Also, the stall is currently being manned (I think) by the original owner's sister and not the original owner himself.
So what can you get here? There are the noodle of course. You can accompany your noodles with fishballs, taufu pok and some braised pork.
Personally I very much prefer the dry version of the noodles and I suspect most people will too. I have very good memories of the food at the original Yap Ah Shak place and I must say the SS2 branch is just as good as I remember.
The standout good food IMHO isn't the fish balls though, it's the taufu pok which is soaked in the braised pork gravy. If you're a fan of the taufu pok in BKTs I think you'll love this too.
So where did the original Yap Ah Shak place go to? From what I gather, they've been closed for at least 3 years. Stay tuned to wAntAn productions for the answer because I recently found them!
Special mention also goes to the chee cheong fun stall at the same place. Pretty good and reasonably cheap.
