Woo Pin Fish Head Noodles, Taman Danau Desa

Gary and Candy has been, for the longest time, trying to get me to try the fish head noodles at Woo Pin. Somehow, I was very busy for many, many weekends...and finally the sun, stars and moon aligned and wahlah, here I am at Woo Pin :p
It was saturday brunch time and Woo Pin was packed, packed, packed! The number of people waiting for tables was rather intimidating, but surprisingly, we got our tables quite quickly. But since it was so crowded, we had to wait a while for our hot bowls of goodness..
And 30 mins later, here's my fish head noodles..
When it comes to fish head noodles, what the pull factor for you? The soup, the fish or the type of noodles used? For me, it's the soup, and I definitely feel that this was Woo Pin's selling point. There's subtle differences to fish head noodles soup; some are skewed towards sourness, some strong with wine and others, extremely milky. Woo Pin's version was milky- no wonder the kids were slurping down the soup like there's no tomorrow. The milkiness was very aromatic, the distinct flavour of milk gave a lingering fragrance in the mouth. The noodles were served with 4 large chunks of fish(head) meat which Candy said was much less as they used to served about 6 pieces of fish meat.
We shared a bowl of yut wat with spinach..
Quite nice but rather fishy. Mask it with the ultra yummy chilli sauce if you cant stand the fishiness. The yut wat (fish paste) was compact and full of fish flavour, gives a good bite.
Woo Pin Fish Head Noodles is located at A37, Plaza Danau 2, Jalan 109F, Taman Danau Desa, 58100 KL. This is how it looks like, dont be confused with all the sign boards, Woo Pin's signboard is the green banner. Available from 730am- 10 pm. Closed on Mondays.

For me, it's definitely the milky soup with a tinge of sourness from the tomatoes and salted vege.

It's very very hard to find a good one here in Ipoh, trust me.
