Fish Head Noodles @ Win Soon Cafe, Kuchai Entrepreneurs Park, Kuala Lumpur

fish head noodles

Monday blues often call for a bowl of comfort.

I'm always partial to a bowl of piping hot noodles with slurp-licious broth, like this newly discovered fish head noodles place in Kuchai.

Legends have been spun about this place for some time but it has taken me a while to park my butt here for a meal since this area suffers from a severe parking problem. 

I'm glad I overcome my prejudices as the fish head noodles is simply divine. You get a choice of fish head, fillets (for those bone challenged folks!), fish paste or even the deluxe addition of prawns (RM15.80). Prices for the basic noodles start from about RM8 onwards.

What makes each bowl slurp-licious is the sweet tasting fish broth laced with milk and a dash of Shao Xing rice wine. There's also the tantalising cholestrol laden fried lard fritters for crunchy texture. Each bowl is served with thick vermicelli. Preserved cabbage and tomatoes are also added to under cut the rich taste of the broth. 

I was a little surprised to discover the broth wasn't as laden with MSG as I expected. I showed no signs of searching for caffeine after a while to counteract the after effects of any added MSG. Another big plus point is this place uses siakap or seabass fish for their noodles. Definitely cleaner than those places who prefer the Song fish (rumoured to be very dirty since they are fed faeces). The place is also run like a well oiled kopitiam (read menu, tick paper order and they'll bring it to you in lighting speed).

Now if parking was a breeze here, I'll be here every other day getting my noodle fix.

Managed to find parking on a random rainy Sunday morning when the place was surprisingly empty! And I have to agree, I wouldn't mind a bowl every week. Way, way more revitalising bowl than Woo Pin's!

Been there once but the long q put me off, never go back again since Kuchai is rather far from my place >.<

Was there in Kuchai a few times, but the dark ambience of the place reminded me of the casual kopitiams. Ended up at Nippy, Chicken Hotpot etc instead.
Maybe should give this a try someday.
