Fish Ball Noodle "dry"

Fish Ball Noodles is a dish containing fishballs served with noodles of different kinds is an extremely popular Singaporean dish. The dish can be served either in a soup or “dry” with the soup on the side. In the dry variety the noodles are cooked with lard, soya sauce, chilli and/or tomato sauce.

The type of noodle you have is up to you: bee hoon (rice vermicelli), mee (yellow wheat noodles), mee kia (yellow wheat vermicelli noodles), kway teow (flat rice noodles) or mee pok (flat yellow wheat noodles).

While you can have it plain, this dish can also come with toppings such as sliced black mushrooms, minced pork, slices of fishcake, pig liver, beans sprouts, seaweed and spring onion.

Nutrition in 1 Bowl of Dry Fish Ball Noodle: 330g

  • Energy: 370 calories
  • Protein: 19 g
  • Carbs: 55 g
  • Fat: 8 g

In this case, to make this dish healthier, choose the soup version of the dish so that the noodles aren’t fried.  Drink the soup first, leaving the noodles to eat last.  Always ask for NO LARD.  Also, choose the bee hoon noodles (vermicelli) have a low Glycaemic Indix (Low GI) so will keep you feeling full for longer.

And, as always: Eat slowly, put your utensils down between bites and stop eating when you feel 80% full because it’s better to waste it than to “waist” it.  Enjoy!

    • Guest_2269 : (Cont. from previous post) Even checking the nutritional information of a single type of noodle by brand on the Fairprice website yields a wide range of 190-354 calories, leaving me very confused! I would also appreciate it if you could include bean thread noodles, udon and soba in your findings, thanks!
