Review: Fish & Noodle House

After I've posted the review of SS20 Fish Head Noodles, there were comments that the nearby Fish & Noodle House has better broth. We scoot over here to check out their version of fish head noodles. Located in a shoplot, it's clean and comfortable as it's air conditioned. The staff are all foreigner so it takes a bit of time to understand what they say in Cantonese hehe.

Browsing through the menu, seems like there are not extensive. There is only the fine mee hoon (rice vermicelli) served here and also one type of fish of either fish head or fillet, deep fried or not. We both ordered the same which is deep fried fish fillet with added evaporated milk (RM9.50 per bowl).

The bowls of noodles arrived and I can smell the wonderful fragrant of rice wine but when I sipped the broth, it's not as flavourful. The mee hoon although is fine and smooth, somehow I preferred mine to be thicker for this kinda of noodles. Just a personal preference I guess. The fish fillet were fried just nice, crispy on the outside and the inside remaining moist.

We both washed down with a glass of Sour Plum Drink (RM3.50) each which is made of calamansi lime (limau kasturi in Malay) that are blended whole. This explained the greenish hue of the drink. There would be a sour plum inside the glass. Their version here really packed a punch and it was a great thirst quencher on the hot day the we were there.

We both find the broth over at SS20 Fish Head Noodles is more to our liking and also kinda like the variety available as well. However, this is just our taste bud and you would be surprise that the crowd at Fish & Noodle House after lunch hour is still commendable. I guess one man's meat is another man's poison eh... especially when it comes to food ;-)

Hey, did this used to be a just a little place at a corner under a zinc roof where all the gerai makans were near the hospital? Did they move? I thought they were just so-so. But like you said, it's a personal taste.

Yeah... Taste is soooo subjective. But for the record, I prefer the other place too ;)

The sour plum drink looks enticing.

Ping, this is their competitor. They were still at the same place but have a new shoplot opposite the gerai as well.
