Moon Kee Fish Noodle at Sri Petaling

Update: 3 April 2016 (Sunday). We were around this area and noticed that this eatery is no longer at this location.

I read about this Fish Noodle eatery in PJ but did not have a chance to visit it. Now that it has opened a branch in Sri Petaling recently which is near my place, it is quite convenient for me to drop by for an early dinner.

My order - Seaweed soup with Dragon Grouper 龍虎斑 (4 pieces of fish meat) with thin rice vermicelli (mee hoon) - MYR21.20 nett (inclusive of 6% GST) for a small portion which contains a lot of mee hoon until I had to stuff myself to finish it. The fish meat is fresh with thick chewy skin.

Dragon Grouper 龍虎斑 is a hybrid between Giant Grouper 龍躉 Epinephelus lanceolatus and Brown-Marbled Grouper or Tiger Grouper 老虎斑 (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus). Grouper is also known as Sea Bass.

My Spouse's order - Milky Noodle (Thin Mee Hoon) Soup with Poached Grouper 石斑 (we chose to omit the milk) - MYR16.95 nett for a small portion which also contains a lot of mee hoon with 4 pieces of fresh fish meat. This fish has thinner skin than Dragon Grouper. I prefer this broth because it is sourish due to the tomatoes. Both bowls of noodles included lots of spring onions which we like.

I wonder will they give more pieces of fish meat for the larger portion or just more noodles. The small portion contains more than enough noodles for us each so I prefer that they give more pieces of fish meat. Guess we will need to order a large portion to find out on our next visit.

Address and Total Bill - MYR38.15

Please click on the menu above to view the prices. I will order the Giant Grouper Noodle on my next visit because Giant Grouper has the thickest skin which I like to eat. I am happy that I do not need to travel far now to get my fresh Grouper noodle.

  2. I love fish noodles, clear soup. Don't mind the milky ones sometimes for a change - we can't get that here, not anymore...but that one, don't they deep fry the fish first?

    1. If you click on the menu above, you can see that they also offer deep fried fish to go with the noodles but we prefer poached fish which is more delicious!

    1. If you like to eat grouper fish, then I don't think you will mind paying MYR25 for a bowl of nice fresh fish meat noodle.

    1. Hahaha, you read my post too quickly and miss the part where I wrote "we chose to omit the milk". My spouse does not eat dairy or dairy products so he cannot have milk in his soup.

  5. Wah, the fish noodles here are more than double the price of the Millenium 86 ones, so I'd expect the fish to be even fresher. I've always thought that grouper is already the english name, didn't know it's known as seabass too (I thought seabass is ikan siakap).

    1. The size of the noodles and the size of the fish meat is also double those of M86. I would rather pay more to eat nice fish once in a while than to eat fishy smelling fish regularly. Seabass is a very common name and covers many genus and family of fishes (please refer to wiki for Seabass). Siakap is Barramundi aka Asian Seabass so you are correct too.

    1. I went to the one in Sg Buloh that you wrote about but it was closed and it was too far away for me to go again so I am happy I get to eat at a nearby shop here. The one you wrote about is also expensive, right?

  11. Depends on the price difference between the two sizes I guess? If not much means it's only noodle, no extra fish. Actually if it's fish you want, safer to just order extra fish. Otherwise where you gonna put all the extra bihun? :p

  12. The price difference is significant, small is MYR16, large is MYR25 so I think they will give one extra piece of fish meat and then the rest is extra noodle. I will order a large portion to share between 2 persons and see my guess is correct or not.
