Fish Paste and Minced Pork Noodles @ Petaling Jaya Old Town



Sssssssssh, it's a secret!

I was contemplating whether to post this today or not since I wanted to keep this place under wraps. Most of the time whenever I visit a place, I have no qualms posting it up and spreading the word around about the yummy food. However with this place, I think I'll tread a bit carefully purely because it seems to be so hidden. I reckon they have their reasons. Most of their customers know this place by word of mouth and I believe I have read previous blog entries about it.

To get here, walk towards the back of the house and you will be amazed to see tables and chairs set out. The kitchen looks like an ordinary kitchen and they even opened the back of their house for people to dine within. Famous for their fish paste (yee wat), it tastes exactly like my aunt's springy home made version. We had ordered the minced meat and yee wat noodles (RM5 per bowl) which came full of ingredients. Even the minced meat was different from the usual stalls as it had a bouncy texture and smooth from the addition of pork fats in the mince. I also liked how they used the tiny gem lettuces in their noodle soup. We had the kuey teow which was smooth and silky. Aside from these noodles, you can also order sui kaw filled to the brim with their fish paste. Although we didn't try these sui kaw but I understand they're average tasting. The fish paste can even be bought and cooked at home.

Fish Paste Noodles
Somewhere in Petaling Jaya Old Town
Near the wet market
Petaling Jaya

(Non Halal. Open from 8 am to 2pm. Closed on Thursday and Sunday. Get here early as the wait can be horrendous during peak times as they cook each bowl individually.)

looks scrumptious! hand made fish ball and minced pork in a pork broth.. simple but difficult to make it delicious without msg. don't worry about being discrete about the place.. the proprietors would usually frown on picture taking if they want to avoid the attention anyway.

Paprika said...

i find the 'yee wat' at seapark to be the best so far. little hawker stall next to a mechanic's workshop. after u turn into the lane next to KFC head towards the end of the road. Only opens for dinner, cheap & good.
have not tried this 'secret-back-of-house' one though, will head to it soon!

jesslyn82 - I saw loads of people eating that, didn't know they had yee wat. Thxs for the tip will go try that.

mamabok - hee hee, maple syrup in exchange for this. Pretty fair deal. You're on when you get home.
