Our History

Mingfa traces its origins to a small pushcart in the alleyways of Chinatown, where Lim Chye Kang sold his handmade fishballs with noodles to a small but loyal customer base in 1946. The business was passed down from father to son twice, and more than 70 years on, the third generation has overseen an expansion of the family business - from a single pushcart in the ‘40s to thirteen outlets islandwide, as well as franchises in Jakarta.

Our desire for customer satisfaction and convenience has also driven R&D efforts, culminating in a wide variety of frozen products for you to enjoy the authentic Mingfa quality in the comfort of your own home! From our Signature Meatballs, Fuzhou Fishballs or, Sambal Shrimp Balls (first in Singapore!), there’s always something for everyone.

The primary reason for Mingfa’s continued success through the years is the relentless insistence on using only the freshest ingredients. Fishballs are made fresh everyday with zero preservatives added, so you know you’re consuming 100% yellowtail fish paste in every single ball. This is our unwavering commitment to our customers - always fresh, zero additives, satisfaction guaranteed!
