Print Recipe


  • 250 gr Noodles of your choice I used rice noodle sticks (bee hoon)
  • 15 -20 pieces fish balls or more
  • 4 stalks chye sim



  • 1 stalk spring onion finely chopped
  • Fresh coriander leaves
  • crispy fried shallots
  • Garlic oil and chips

Serve with:

  • Red and/or green Thai chili finely chopped
  • Soy sauce


Making the easy basic soup:

  • Soak the dried anchovies in water for about 5 minutes. Discard water and rinse a few times. Bring the chicken stock to a boil. Add the dried anchovies and lower the heat to let it gently simmer for about 15 minutes
  • Strain the stock and discard the ikan bilis. Season with sugar and salt to your taste. Add fish balls into the soup and cook for about 1 minute. I used ready-made fish balls, which are usually pre-cooked, so this part is just to reheat the fish balls

While the soup is simmering:

  • I used a thin bee hoon that need to be soaked for 2 minutes. And then briefly cook in boiling water for only about a minute or less. If you use different noodles or pasta, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the noodles according to instructions. Refresh the noodles/pasta with cold water. Set aside
  • Separate the chye sim into single stalk. Blanch the chye sim in a small pot of water for 1 minute then refresh with cold water

Putting it together:

  • Portion the noodles into an individual serving bowl. Add 4-5 fish balls or more (it's up to you). Ladle the hot soup generously over the noodles. Garnish with chopped green onions, cilantro leaves, drizzle of garlic oil and the chips, sprinkle with fried shallots. Serve with red and/or green chili doused in soy sauce
