Fish head noodles-Win Soon café – Kuchai Lama

Come to think of it, milk is such a weird ingredient  to add to a Chinese dish, don’t you think, not that I am an expert in Chinese cooking, but it just seemed odd.. I wonder who ever came up with this idea of adding milk into the soup ? must have happened by accident guar ? if this was the case, what would have happened if it was Ribena, or Kicapoo that ‘dropped’ into the soup ?

 

We were at Win Soon on Sunday at about 2pm, where you would expect the lunch crowd to be over, but even at that hour, it was still packed, we had to queue for about 5 minutes before we were shown to our table. The waitress came by and we place our orders, I am not in favour of milk in my soup and am watching my cholesterol level,  so I ordered the fishpaste + fish (RM6.80) and the others ordered fish paste + fish, other options include prawns noodles. On the menu, you have a choice of broad or thin of noodles, but we were told that only the thin noodles were available    . The interior of the eatery is  airconditioned,  dimly lit and  cozy , bamboo shades at the sides were lowered to keep out the sun.

 

With the big crowd, you will  expect a long wait and frankly it was not a short wait.  it was  almost 20 minutes when the noodles arrived.

 

We find the servings of fish paste and fish in the noodles to be generous. The fish paste texture was just  right and the fish were fresh. I am happy with my soup but the others who ordered the soup with milk commented that it was a wee bit sweet and camouflaged  the original taste of the soup

 

 

 

After devouring the noodles, we found that we were all sweaty regardless of the aircon, well, I don’t mind to sweat for food..

 

Location: From Old Klang Road, turn into Kuchai Lama, and head towards the DBKL office at Kuchai Lama, go pass DBKL until you reach the end of the office blocks then make a right and on immediately on your left you will see the shop which is the corner lot . Address : Jalan Kuchai Maju 9, off Jalan Kuchai Lama. It’s open from 9 am to 10 pm

    Hey Toon,
    yeah, i prefer Win Soon compared to the Woo Pin version too ( but then again, i like Goon Wah’s version better to this 😀 ) – as i find the soup at Woo Pin a bit too salty for my liking but then i have friends that prefer the Woo Pin version, so i guess everyone have their preference lorr

    Went to Win Soon Fish Head Noodles @ Kuchai Lama recently after a long absence to that eatery. I was in for a rude surprise. There was this Chinese lady who was running the place like a mandor. There were 4 of us and I ordered 2 bowls of the fish head with fish paste noodle and a plate of Vietnamese prawn roll to be shared among the 4 of us. When the food came I asked for 2 empty bowls. The Chinese lady gave us only one and said that the small bowls are for children. She told me to eat out of a plate. I glared at her and told her that it’s ridiculous to eat soup noodles out of a plate. After much grumbling she finally brought one more. I also asked for more chilly sauce from at least 3 foreign waitresses but no one brought them. I guess chilly sauce is also a controlled item in the eatery too.
    Well that will be the last time I am going to eat there. Furthermore the quality of the food has dropped.
