SS20 Fish Head Noodles, Damansara Kim

When Bollywood Queen returned recently for a short weekend break, we popped over to SS20 for some fish head noodles.
I wanted to try this stall for sometime already, just that I went to another fish head noodle place instead while searching for this stall :p
So nothing will deter me from getting here this time around..
Decent crowd, we got our seats quickly and ordered..
Some baby spinach soup with fish paste..
I really enjoyed this. The baby spinach was tender, not fibrous and sweet. The fish paste had a firm, yet springy texture- lovely to bite into.
There were a few types of fish noodles that we could choose from; I opted for the soong fish head with mixed of fried and fresh fish head, with lai fun.
I find the noodles smooth and springy, however, the soup lacked the aroma I was looking for. The soup was rather diluted, the wine fragrance was missing and lacked that bit of sour plum kick. The fish head was fresh nonetheless, the fried versions were tastier than the non fried ones. Soup wise, I feel the Fish & Noodles just a road away fared better.
SS20 Fish Head Noodle is located at Gerai 20, Medan Selera MBPJ, Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya.

Hey I'm just about to blog about this too... TOTALLY agree about the soup. I liked that they used lai fun but the soup didn't really have the wine punch to it! Disappointed really!

Dear thenomadGourmand,
Thanks for the write out at your blog

Dear 550ml jar of faith,
I notice that it seems that the soup wasnt a real kick to you due to wine wasn't enuff. We used to put heavy dosage on the wine where as there are feedbacks saying that the wine was too strong and cant taste the original broiled soup taste. Most of our customers like the original soup taste because its originally broiled for long hours instead of MSG soup like what is served in the market. You can request to add wine to your noodle when you are making your order.

Dear UnkaLeong,
As for noodles soup and spinach soups are cooked differently. For your information, each and every orders you try there, the soup taste will be slightly different depending on your orders
