A Singapore success story of 38 years: Fishball Noodles and Singapore Laksa at Pandan Gardens, near Jurong East. They have been serving at the exact coffeeshop since 1982!
When you first heard of the place Pandan Gardens, you might be scratching your head be thinking, “Where on Singapore is this place located?” But for those who know, they will definitely know of a stall named Pandan Gardens Fishball Noodles (PGFN) where they have been serving delicious bowls of Fishball Noodles & Singapore Laksa since 1982 at the exact same coffee shop even though there was a change of 3 owners!
PGFN has since expanded to 5 outlets in Singapore since 2015 through their second generation. When it comes to the original stall, you could still catch their ever-friendly husband and wife team founders, Mr Seow and his wife manning the stall in some mornings where they could actually memorise most of their orders. They have even served some customers of their 3rd generation!
The taste of their noodles has an old school vibe. We love their dry variant together with their homemade sambal chilli sauce. We ordered their Mini Wok which feels like a mini steamboat with lots of ingredients. You could also their Laksa Mini Wok which is one of the kind in many places we visited thus far.
Their Singapore Laksa is uniquely created by the founders which have been crafted with a mix of more than 10 different spices. What we like about the gravy is that it’s just nice for our palates, not too watery and not too thick which definitely will not give you the “jelak” feel after you have down their savoury soup base.
We understand for the owners, especially for their Pandan Gardens outlet, they kept 2 selection of their noodles from only $2.80 per bowl so as to keep it affordable to loyal supporters even though they have just recently renovated last year.
YOU MUST TRY their deep-fried yummy side dishes like their Tau Kee which goes extremely well when dipped into their Laksa gravy plus their signature fishcakes!
