Fish and Spinach

Since we did not get to eat the fish slice noodles at the Big Family coffee shop, we went to another eatery to eat some fish slices in soup after our brief stop at the Waterfront, Desa Park City. It was about 2 pm at that time.

Sang Yu slices (ikan Haruan) with baby spinach soup - MYR17 - there are 6 thick slices of fish - 3 slices deep fried and 3 slices not fried. You can choose to have all deep fried or all not fried. I like to eat these fish slices. If only this eatery is near my place then I will eat it every week.

There is really a lot of baby spinach in this soup so it is really worth the price of MYR17 and I could not finish it on my own, have to share it with others.

Soong Fish (松鱼) Head Noodles - Not Fried - MYR10.50 with a milky soup. The other choice is to have deep fried fish. There is a Cantonese saying "松鱼头鲩鱼尾" (Sōng yú tóu huàn yú wěi - Mandarin) meaning if you want to eat fish head, then eat Soong Fish (Big Head Carp), if you want to eat the fish tail, then eat Wan Fish (Grass Carp).


Tasty cendol ice at MYR4.50 a bowl. All prices are nett prices.

We always eat in the air-conditioned outlet since it is bright and looks airy. There is another open air outlet very nearby and the price there I think is a bit lower but I have never been there so I can't verify this.

    2. Ahh, you can stop waiting. I don't do deep fried one, need a lot of oil for that, don't know how to handle it during and after cooking :/

  5. but good also if can eat, like the Chinese say "eating is a blessing".. and the fish look so so fresh in the photo, I can imagine the "springiness" in my mouth already.. and the soup is sure sweet and fresh and very flavorful huh?? but the price is a bit steep?? or maybe it's similar price everywhere for fish??

  8. Wow! This looks delicious and I like how generous they are with the fish slices in the fish noodles.

    I've eaten something like this in (seafood noodles in SS4) too - it used to cost RM 12 in 2009.

    They have a range of fish too but I think the prices have increased, at least they have when I went again.

    RM 17 is still a very good price though, thanks for the tip, I'll go and try it Mun! :)

  11. Hi Mun

    Actually the big family restaurant is quite near our place. I don't usually go there because it is too packed especially lunch time. Somehow, I really wish to go for the fish noodles some day.

    You should try the roasted duck too.

    1. Yes I can see the place can be very packed during lunch time with no parking. SS20 is not that packed during weekends.

    1. Australia has more fresh fishes so there is no market for Soong fish I guess.
