Yummy Yu Tao Mai

One of my favourite yu tao mai (fish head noodles) is located near Wisma Sime Darby, KL city centre. I cant recall the name of the restaurant/road, but its along the same road as Wisma Sime Darby. We call it the "Back Lane" restaurant coz its really located at.. yup, the back lane...

Its not like usual fish head noodles where you get fish slices(instead of fish head) which is usually deep fried till its shrivelled and dry. The soup does not have the usual accompaniment of preserved veg and sliced tomatoes.. all you get is the sweet fish stock boiled with fresh water fish.. They use fish head, chopped into large pieces, fried quickly ("go yau" in canton) before boiling it. What you get is good fish soup, yummy fish head chunks with plenty of fish fats(mind the bones though), some greens and spring onions.

As there were only 2 of us that nite, we cant order any other dishes as their yu tau mai serving is freaking BIG!! They also serve dishes (tai chao).. some dishes I enjoyed is "or jien"( so far the best I've tasted in Klang Valley), steam fish head (teo chew style, a very popular dish there), pineapple spare ribs and their veg(stir-fried, any veg)..

Location: same road as Wisma Sime Darby.Turn in from Jln Sultan Ismail, take the 3rd turn on your left. The road goes slightly downhill, the restaurant is on your left (their entrance is the back lane).
Note though, the hygiene level is not too good. Price: RM 16(i think..) for the fish head (one size). Noise level: Very noisy. Chinese style tai chao. Some locals bring thier expats friends over for dinner...
