Once Shunned By Sceptics, Indian Fishball Noodle Hawkers Expand Biz With 2nd Stall In Tampines & Central Kitchen

When Lina Fishball Noodle first opened shop in 2019, the couple had to put up with condescending questions like, “Do you [even] know what this [dish] is?”

Lina Fishball Noodle made waves when it opened in a Toa Payoh coffee shop back in August 2019. Its photogenic young towkays Jeevan Ananthan, 31, and his wife, May Leena Krishnan, 32 stood out for being an Indian and Indian-Chinese couple slinging bowls of fishball noodles and bak chor mee, complete with house-made herh keow (fish dumplings) and fishballs.

It’s been three years since then. They have weathered the pandemic, relocated to a bigger stall in another Toa Payoh kopitiam and even set up a central kitchen. Recently, they opened a second outlet in a Tampines North kopitiam on August 8. 

The couple also has a ten-month-old daughter now.
