Despite rising costs of ingredients, they insist on selling fishball noodles for just S$2 without cutting back on the amount of food in the bowl.
Because nearby residents comprise mainly elderly folks, and they don’t want to pass on the burden to them by raising prices.
And to make sure that anybody can have a meal at anytime of the day, they decided to keep their stall open 24hrs.
This unassuming stall fishball noodle stall, San Yuan, is nestled in the middle aisle of the hawker centre at Toa Payoh Lorong 8.
You’ll know it by its bright red signboard.
It’s run by 37-year-old Mr Lim, and 38-year-old Mr Xie.
And the hawker duo doesn’t believe in scrimping on the ingredients because of lower prices.
For S$2, you can get a bowl of mee pok with 6 fishballs.
A $3 bowl gets you 10 fishballs (and possibly indigestion after makan!)
Besides fishball noodles, San Yuan also sells bak chor mee (minced meat noodles) and laksa.
And trust us, the noodles are damn bloody good – fragrant chili, springy mee, tasty soup, and most important of all, crispy pork lard!
