A meatball concept restaurant in Simpang Bedok Market Place, the Ballistic Meatballs stall opened in May 2015. Touting hand made meatballs, and with a name that is a pun itself, Ballistic Meatballs has a simple, straightforward menu, with a very niche concept.

Ambience at Ballistic Meatballs is shared with the rest of the stalls in the area. The clean, white look and feel projects a sense of minimalist zen, and you can see staff hard at work in the open kitchen. Part of the appeal here is their high bar stools, though I much prefer sitting in the spacious common area in front of the stall.

Service at Ballistic Meatballs is decent. Staff are young and cheery, offering greetings when you step in. They're rather knowledgable about the menu and meatball ingredients, able to answer basic questions. And while ordering and payment is self-service, staff do serve orders to your table if you sit nearby.

Food at Ballistic Meatballs is designed around meatballs. The meatballs are small, hand made, and generally of decent taste. Ballistic Meatballs has a few other options on their small menu, including several side dishes, and sliders. Portions are small for 1 person, and prices are reasonable, budget about SGD $9 per person for a meal here.

The chef has experimented with creating his own flavours, and the meatballs here are a distinct fusion of Western presentation and Asian flavours. And they're also a No Pork, No Lard store.

The Crispy Wild Mushrooms (SGD $3) are cut into strips, with a crisp batter that crunches softly, incredibly satisfiying. The earthy, fresh taste of the mushrooms still shine through, and the overall dish is light and non-greasy. Highly recommended!

The Salted Egg Yolk Fries (SGD $7.90) is a new item on the menu, and most of our group found it delicious! The salted egg yolk sauce is thick, creamy, with good flavour that is a mix of salty and spicy (from curry leaves). The fries are hot, with a medium thickness, and the combination is delightful. However, it needs to be eaten quickly, as it doesn't taste as good when it cools.

Meatballs are the speciality here. The Plain Jane Chicken Meatballs (SGD $4) are small and round, with a slight bouncy texture to the meat. You can't really taste the chicken, as the herbs and spices are a lot stronger, but overall, I liked it! The Signature Cheesy Beef Meatballs (SGD $5.90) feature a cheese stuffed beef meatball, garnished with crunchy sesame seeds While I liked the savoury, salty taste, the texture isn't as pleasant as the other meatballs, being slightly dry.

The star of the Crispy Chili Crab Balls With Mantou (SGD $10.50) is actually the tangy, spicy, sour, sweet chili crab sauce. The fresh, tightly packed crab balls, deshelled and delicious, soak up the sauce beautifully without getting mushy, and the fried mantou buns on the side are just perfect for mopping up the yummy sauce!

Update Dec-2015: Ever heard of a salted egg yolk pasta? In lieu of a tomato sauce, cream sauce, or aglio olio style of pasta, they've created a Salted Egg Yolk Pasta (SGD $14.90), using the thick, creamy, salted egg yolk sauce as a gravy for the base of this dish! Savoury and slightly slightly, with full eggy flavour, the rather soft linguine noodle pasta is enhanced with this incredible salted egg taste. Completely delicious, but also a sinful, decadent dish, which is rather heavy to consume at one go!
