One day, I ended up at Jalan Alor, KL's famous red light district and hawker food centre for an extremely late lunch. Since it was so late, almost 3 pm when I walked down the street, most places were either closed or had not opened for the night session yet. The only place which was bustling with people was this shop that sold fish head mee hoon (Yue Tow Mai Fun in Cantonese), Curry Laksa and Seafood Tomyam Noodles.
Hence I decided to give the noodles a try since I wanted something different. The fish head noodles(RM6) came with large chunks of deep fried fish head pieces dipped in a floury batter. I liked the fish which was fresh. However, it was full of bones so it was a slow process eating it. The soup base is made from fish stock or boiling the fish head pieces and has a dash of evaporated milk, ginger slices and sliced tomatoes. Overall, I thought the noodles was pretty decent but not fantastic for me to revisit the place. For me, the ultimate fish head noodles is still from Ka Soh.
