I took some time off to pay off a saman
(ticket for a parking violation) I got on my trip to Perak a few weeks back and managed to have lunch with ST. She's been telling me about this place with Fish Slice Noodles and how expensive they are. It sounded quite ridiculous. RM15 for a bowl of noodles with fish but since I rarely get to have lunch on a working day with ST I though why not?
So what's a Fish Slice Noodle? It's exactly what you think it is. Basically it's made up of 2 components. The first being the noodle. They may be dry or with soup and you can choose from the usual suspects (yellow noodles, beehoon, kuey teow, etc...). Next you select a fish and they slice it up for you and serve it with soup.
It's located in a typical Chinese kopitiam kind of place.
We both had dry kuey teow. Nothing extraordinary about this actually.
ST had this meaty bowl of fish. Ermm... it's Siakap I think. Can't remember since it's been so long and I'm bad with fish names.
I had this delicious pomfret.
Excellent fish cakes.
The first thing I noticed about their food was how sweet tasting the soup that came with the fish were. Perhaps they boiled it with lots of fish (or fish bones). The fish were very fresh and that means tender and flavourful meat. For those who don't like meat with bones they debone the fish quite well so you don't have to deal with them. The fish cakes are rather expensive but they are good as well.
The damage was RM10 each for the fish noodles and RM5 for the fish cake. They were good so I do think the price was worth it. This place serves more than just noodles with fish. They also have porridge and some other seafood as well. They are open for breakfast and lunch. At night a different stall takes over.
