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..
