Woo Pin Fish Head Noodles, Taman Danau Desa


Fried Fish Head Noodles

I don’t remember when I started liking fish head noodles my mum being a big fan, would buy a packet home for me whenever she eats it. I think the word ‘fish’ put me off as a kid so this wasn’t something I would go for, growing up.


Piping hot and delicious

Now that I’m older, I’ve become quite a fan of fish head noodles. More of the noodles and broth, less of the fish head. I don’t fancy picking fish bones from my teeth and at the rate I eat, I might choke on one.


Lunch crowd

We ordered a bowl of fish head noodles and fish paste noodles (RM8 – small, RM10 – large), plus a plate of fried fish cake and fuchuk (RM9) to share. A large bowl contains quite a generous amount of vermicelli and ingredients – fish, tomato slices, preserved vege and shallots.


Fish Paste Noodles

I liked the fish head version better than the fish paste noodles, although, the latter was a lot easier to eat. The fish head noodles had a tastier broth and it was more aromatic. I ate this with some sambal belacan – fiery and full of oomph.


Kick-ass sambal chilli


Mixed Fried Platter

The fried items were nothing to shout about; I ordered them as nibbles while waiting for my noodles. But service was efficient so we didn’t need to wait for longer than 10 minutes.


It’s best to get to Woo Pin by noon as the place gets crowded pretty quickly. Alternatively, you can opt to share tables with strangers to minimise waiting time. Between Woo Pin and Goon Wah’s fish head noodles, I prefer the former as the broth is more flavourful.

    Just came back from Taman Danau Desa branch a while ago.. Extremely disappointed.
    The service is extremely suck and slow.. Came earlier and placed order but food not being served.. Waited so long, approached the waiter , he then came back and said the staff overlooked then no apology at all. Checked when the take away – fried fish with fish paste mee hoon is ready, been told to wait as still cooking.. The worst part was I only realized that they gave us the wrong item- a Fried fish with boiled fish head & yuen choi ( bayam) without mee hoon.. Sucks!!!! Price increase from RM5.50 till now RM9.00 over the years, mee hood small portion, soup taste& fish paste size not standardized!!! Over-fried fish pieces … disappointed!!

    Their fish head noodle very salty…..very thirsty after eat. I will feel very thirsty through out the day.

    I recommend you guys to try Moon Kee (Section 17). Near by SS2 Mall or seapark round about. Once you have try their fish head noodle, definitely you won’t go back to Woo Pin Fish Head Noodles (Taman Desa)
