If you ever find yourself at Ghim Moh Hawker Centre wondering what to eat, fret not, because we have the perfect spot for you to check out! Serving up scrumptious bowls of Mee Pok Tah, better known as Fishball Noodles, is the popular Tom’s Cityzoom Mee Pok Tar! With floods of customers queuing up on a daily, this is a stall you definitely must try!
Popular Stall At Ghim Moh
Tom’s Cityzoom Mee Pok Tar was started by a young hawker, Tom, in 2014. To this day, he continues serving his amazing mee pok tah to residents around the area! His brother, Anson, previously ran a successful prawn mee stall at Golden Mile before joining Tom here at Ghim Moh. However, Anson returned to the healthcare profession in 2020 during the pandemic.
It is unknown whether he has gone back to helping Tom at the stall but nonetheless, we are truly grateful for his service! Although Tom doesn’t make his own noodles, he sources them from Lau Boon Heng, a trusted noodle supplier in Singapore.
Scrumptious Fishball Noodles!
Tom’s Signature Mee Pok Tah ($3.50) is served with a generous amount of fried wanton and handmade fish cakes, along with a bowl of comforting fishball soup. The mee pok gives a nice springy texture, with each strand of noodle coated beautifully with the flavourful sauce. Delivering flavour profiles of savouriness, tanginess, and spice, the sauce is well-balanced, making every bite simply delightful.
As for the fish cakes, they are cut into thick slices. The juicy and tender meat of the fishcake is complemented by the crunchiness from the exterior, with a pleasant amount of savouriness, and a hint of sweetness and leek.
One of Tom’s most popular items is definitely his wantons! Instead of the usual minced pork, his wantons are instead filled with fish paste. Certainly a unique item you don’t see at most hawker stalls! They are so popular that they are often sold out even before the stall closes. The incredible wantons are crispy and well-seasoned, while the handmade fishballs are extremely bouncy and bursting with fish flavour.
