Restoran Shui Kee @ Jalan Alor, KL

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.

FooDcrazEE said...

Unknown said...

gosh, u guys have a KaSoh also in KL? Wonder if it's connected to the Ka Soh restaurant in Singapore too, the top-selling item also being that fish beehoon milky soup?

babekl - the one nxt door is said to have nice curry noodles but no one was eating it at all so very suspect.

tummythoz - They were packed at 3pm! Strange as it was the only place full of people at that hour.

ejaz-kajum - sounds good. Read yr blog it's at perdana view condos. Must admit that I rarely wander up Dsara Perdana though. Once it's up, let us know and we'll toodle over to do a very annoymous review.

kampungboycitygal - no idea as I usually eat at the Ka Soh in Medan Dsra i.e. behind Victoria Station/Jake's Charbroiled.

foodcrazee - can't expect you to eat at places mah, you're stuck up that big hill!

cath - really? Don't know if connected or else my brother would have mentioned it.

Ha ha ha... this noodles really quite nice, but I hate the bones so much!

Babe_KL said...

the nice curry laksa hv shifted to further down the road. the shop is the intermediate corner, name of kopitiam is dimsum something. the stall name is sister's noodles

boo_licious said...

puspha - thxs! I am hopeless in memes though.

tekko - I know! I hate them too and have to eat slowly.

babe - thxs for the tip.

c a r c a r said...

aih... i shall not come here and comment any more... boo_licious cannot see carcar's comment..

sob sob...

boo_licious said...

ooops, very sorry carcar. I think I had to retype my comments the 2nd time round and I missed yrs.

Spore hawker food is always nice esp if you know where to eat. Don't think I have eaten fishhead noodles there though. Where's a good place to try out?

c a r c a r said...

oh...i see i see.
hmm, there is one hawker centre near my work place is selling a pretty good fishhead soup. the aunty very frenly :)
they add the 'hua diao jiu' at the very last stage, so it tasted nice.. and if u request for more of it, they gave it freely, hehe and they have seaweed on top of it too.

c a r c a r said...

oh ya, forget to say thanks. for coming back again to reply me, i sound so 'xiu hei' previously, pai say :P

you are a very good food photographer, and writter.

*thumbs up*

boo_licious said...

carcar - no problems! Spore does have great food - think near Holland Village there is a famous XO fish head noodles rite?

This is Gel Mariscotes, Researcher of GMA Network Inc.( Mel and Joey) Philippines.

This September, we are celebrating the 4th anniversary of our program hosted by the award winning broadcaster Ms. Mel Tiangco and comedian/ singer host Mr. Joey De Leon.

In our anniversary episode, we plan to visit four Asian countries ( Macau, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore)

In line with this, we want to ask if you could help us to get the contact number of the RESTORAN SHUI KEE owned by a Filipina named Jane Manalo-Tan. We want that restaurant to be feature in our show.

Our tentative schedule to go to Malaysia is by last week of August or first week of September.

We are hoping for your favorable response.

Thanks and God Bless!
