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.

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.
