Fish Head Noodle Jalan Pasar

I was told this is the best fish head noodle in town. There is no shop name. It's located in Lorong Yap Hin, off Jalan Pasar.

Very generous portion of fish in a bowl.

Only bones and empty bowl left :D ya..i know..i am good! LOL. The soup was clear yet flavorful even though no preserved vege, tomato were used.  Just natural freshness and sweetness from the fish! I did see a worker peeling luffa/loofah though. Perhaps that's where some of the sweetness come from. I could taste shaoxing wine in the soup too. Love it.

Gulai Kawah Sri Ayu Sri Gombak

I went to this gulai kawah place in Sri Gombak for lunch yesterday. I am not sure if there's a name but I'll just call it Sri Ayu. Similar to Anis Putri in Pantai Dalam.

Fish Head Noodle Fan Cam Mei restoran

I tried out a new fish head noodle place in Taman Sri Sinar. Restoran Fan Cam Mei (返寻味) Been there a couple of times.

This street (Jalan 6/38D) is always jammed almost all day long with many inconsiderate drivers double parking. I advise you to park a little further away on 5/38D (see the map at the bottom) where you can find a spot easily and take a short walk (less than 200 meters) to the shop.  

Edit: I went there there a couple of times the past few months. The quality of un-fried fish has deteriorated greatly. The un-fried fish wasn't as white as what you see in the images below, and didn't taste fresh either. It would probably be still okay if fried and served in soup with condensed milk, but as you all know, I only go for clear soup and un-fried fish!

From the first few visits when the un-fried fish was still fresh.

"Soong Yu" fish head in clear soup. Very nice. RM6.50.

And of course, like a friend of mine always says: no dim sum meal is complete without chicken feet (kai keok), LOL.

The bill came to about RM50 for 4 pax inclusive of drinks. I think it's really reasonable especially considering this place is in KL/PJ. Even dim sum places in Sungai Buloh and Kepong are charging about the same price.
