Home Made Fish Head Noodle, Kota Damansara

Lazy saturday, a fine morning when I met up with my high school friends..
We went for some 'serious business' before lunch..and when it's time for lunch, Dragon girl suggested fish head noodles. Since it was just a few hundred metres away from our current location, we agreed immediately.. it's always nice to have other people suggesting place to makan :p
The restaurant looks so cheerful and bright; it's has more of a dessert/ cafe decor rather than fish head noodles.
Ordering was prompt, obviously we were here for the fish head noodles; though there were quite a big range of food to select from.
While waiting for the noodles, we decided to order the BBQ pork shoulder special (RM6.30)...
Served like satay skewers, it tasted deep fried rather than BBQed. The pork was well marinated nonetheless; tasted very similar to fermented beancurd marination. Tender and juicy, this was quite good to snack on.
And here's the star..
The deep fried fish head noodles, RM8.50 (you can choose for fish slices too)
It's served standard with 4 big chunks of deep fried fish head, lots of chopped tomatoes, and preserved vegetables (ham choi). The soup had a tinge of orange, different from the usual milky white that we were so accustomed to. This soup was thicker and skewed towards the sour side; I guess the added a lot of plums to their soup base. If you have always like the light, sweet flavours of fish head soup, this might be too strong for your liking. As for the fish head, it had a very crunchy exterior but the meat was sweet, moist and springy; unlike most places which serves dry over fried fish slices.
Abner on the other hand wanted to have rice, hence he ordered the fried rice with shrimps and preserved vegetables (mui choi) RM7.90.

The rice had ok wok hei and the rice was nice and fluffy. I thought the rice would be salty from the preserved vegetables, but surprisingly, the tastes were very light. Good for those who prefers a less heavy flavoured rice.
Home Made Fish Head Noodle is located at 8-1 & 10-1, Jalan PJU 5/5, Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

maybe they are using the sweet/salty type of mui choi which is great with braised pork belly! never really thought of fried rice with it though, so that's really interesting!

The soup looks so creamy. I used to taste excellent fish head bihun at Negeri Sembilan. Now the quality deteriorated so much. *disappointed*
