Fishball Noodles @ Heng Kee Eating House, KL

I often eat at really obscure places and this particular restaurant is one of them. I was introduced to this far flung place by my dad, the foodie in the family. Not sure how he found this place but he took us here a few times for breakfast. Ever since I was a kid, my dad was the one who steered us to roadside stalls to search for good food. If he is in a new country, the first place he visits is the local market so he can check out what is famous and special there.

Like all fishball places, you can pick a choice from different varieties of yong tau foo stuffed with fish paste, fish balls, deep fried fish cakes, deep fried wantans and my absolute favourite, the fish skin wantan ( Yee Pei Wantan in Cantonese). I love these which you don't usually get at the stalls but is easily available from the wet markets.

You can also choose from a variety of noodles and since they ran out of my favourite "rat tail" or loh shee fun noodles, I ordered kuay teow tossed in soya sauce and sprinkled with minced meat on top.

Yeah, it does look a bit like a UFO! I bet you that is what they tell all the kids to get them to eat it.

praveen - hope you like it. The place was packed during lunchtime so I guess it's popular among the locals.
