“Decent for a fish head noodle fix”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I was introduced to this place by a couple of friends and was happy with the choices available. You can choose to have it with or without milk (evaporated milk from a can). For the traditional purist, fish head noodles is not meant to have milk in its recipe. In old days, they made the soup white through a cooking technique and not with milk. Sadly, the use of milk is the norm these days and it is good to find a place where milk may be omitted.

Flavours wise, for my taste, I think the soup needs a little bit more sour in it. It didn't quite have that fragrant wholesomeness and natural "sweetness" of fish stock that I was looking for. Still, it is very decent. This shop is good in another area - dessert! Again great choices, all executed to meet reasonable expectations. Overall good value for money - you do get quite a bit of fish. Good portion sizes.

As for service, it varies depending on who is heading shop. There's an old uncle who's really nice and friendly. Always smiling, he knows how to make you feel well served and comfortable. However there is also his son who is the opposite of the father in terms of social graces and who has caused my friends to avoid the place.

There are two outlets. One is air conditioned and another is across the street is the more traditional place. I think the old place is better simply because it is usually run by the old folks.

There are better places for fish head noodles but none are within the vicinity. So, if you want fish head noodles and you are in this area, this is your best bet for a fix.
