Just as Tasty

We went to SS20 Fish Head Noodle again to eat our favourite fish slice noodle. The 4 of us ordered the same thing - a bowl of fine rice vermicelli (mee hoon) with a mixture of fried and non fried slices of Sang Yu (Ikan Haruan/Snakehead fish) that costs MYR13 each.

2 bowls with no milk in the broth. Each bowl contains 4 thick slices of fish and we requested for the ham choy (salted vegetables/preserved vegetables) to be omitted so the taste of the soup is just nice, not salty at all.

2 bowls with milk in the broth with no salted vegetable.

Only two of us ordered cendol. This cendol is as good as the Penang one except that there are no red beans in it. MYR4.5 per bowl, the price is the same as before GST. The bill came up to a total of MYR64.65 after 6% GST with no service charge. The food is just as tasty as before so we will be back!

    1. The history of the milk is a long time ago, people used to boil the soup using fish bones until it turned milky white. Nowadays short cut is used where they just put milk into the soup.

    1. I google for miswa and found that we call it misua here. This mee hoon is not as thin as misua. :)

  5. when it comes to fish noodles, it depends on my mood whether I want the soup with milk or without, haha!! but for the fish, I will have it fried and if possible I will opt for fish filet rather than fish head.. I mean fish head has got not much meat yet so many bones, I hate eating that.. I love meat in chunks!! muahahaha!!! :p

  6. Nice! I've never been here before. I generally don't like fish noodles with milk/milk powder inside. I prefer the clear ones but my better half likes this. I'll see if she wants to go this weekend! :)

  7. I like mine without milk and it's nice that they give you a combination of fresh and fried fish slices....best of both worlds!

    1. Yes, it is clever of them to have a mix as one of the choices.

  8. If I am forced to eat this, I will go for fish meat rather than fish head too!

    1. Why forced? You always eat fish when you cook at home so this fish should be no different. In fact this fish is very tasty, no bones at all! Very fresh too.

    2. Usually the fish at these fish head noodles eateries will not be filleted properly, there would be a few pieces of bones remaining. This is even more dangerous than fish that has not been filleted, as it gives me a false sense of security and I might relax by guard and end up choking with fish bones.

      I've never had a fish meat noodles at fish head noodles stalls where the fish is 100% bone free. :/

      Delete
    3. Yes, I can see how it can be dangerous if one assumes that there is absolutely no bones in the filet and just eat quickly and swallow. As for me, I enjoy each bite slowly and so far no bones - touch wood! :)

    2. Non fried fish is the healthier option but the fried fish is very tasty!

    1. Western soup usually put milk or cream in them. Is this correct?

  13. I like fish slices (both fried and non-fried) noodles without milk but with salted veg to give a sourish taste. Hmmm I like cendol with lots of big red beans!

    1. The salted veg is more to salty and not really sourish. Actually I find having milk and no milk not much difference, just that the milk gives the soup a little creamy taste.
