I first heard about this fish head noodle at SS20 (Damansara Kim) place from my ex housemate Kerol, and soon after that, on masak-masak. Since these two ladies are known for their culinary exploits, I knew that this is surely a place that will not disappoint.

So together with Horng, Kerol, and TBG (who didn’t eat cos she was on diet) we made our way to Damansara Kim one Saturday for brunch.

The fish head noodle stall is located at a municipal food court (in this case, MBPJ), which translate to plastic tables and chairs under tin roof. However, the good news is that there are plenty of electric fans blowing everywhere so it was actually quite airy and pretty comfortable.

Unlike other stalls in food courts around the country, the fish head noodle at ss20 actually provides a menu with photos of each dish offered. Here you can order Soong fish, Haruan (snake head), mackeral fish paste, and even salmon.

I ordered a bowl of Haruan fish head with meehun. The fish came in both deep fried and fresh slices and I liked them both. The soup had all the ingredients you’d expect in any proper fish head noodle – tomato, spring onion, ginger, deep fried shallots and garlic, preserved vegetable, and evaporated milk.

The noodle springy, the fish was fresh and tasty, and the soup too had all the proper mixture of taste – sweet, salty, savory all at once. I actually liked it quite a lot despite my natural preference to the fish head noodle with clear soup (Penang style).

A bowl of fish head noodle starts from RM7 (Soong fish and fish paste) to about RM 9.50 (Haruan). Side orders of fish slices and fish paste without noodle goes for RM 12. Cendol in a glass and other drinks are also served here. As with a lot of MBPJ food courts, this place is pork free.

  16. thenomadGourmand

  17. KA,
    I’ve heard of it, perhaps I should!

    Looks like I’m gonna be too busy this weekend, haih!

  18. is this place halal? if so, i must go.

  19. didn’t read through the other comments but there are way better fish head noodles in taman desa and jalan kuchai lama.

  20. rita,
    Pork free, but not certified halal

    I guess I’ll just have to try them out to know, thanks. 🙂

  21. fish slices FTW. easy to eat.

  22. Lyrical Lemongrass

    I normally get my fish head noodle fix in KL. Must try this place too since, like you, I’ve heard lots of amazing things about it.

  23. Myhorng,
    Yah, much easier than fish head.

    Lyrical Lemongrass,
    Make it happen! 😀

  24. King Kong

    I haven’t tried penang style fish head noodle. But I really like fish head noodle with evaporated milk.

  25. wah…delicious….is better than the one i had recently at damansara kim too…

  26. less bones? i dun prefer fish head noodles because of the bones >.<

  27. King Kong,
    They’re slightly different but I do like em both

    oOo interesting. emm


  28. hmmpphh…over rated this place…
    pay so much , so little noodles and fish..
    taste also nothing great ler…

  29. physio,
    Ah, but I do like the soup and the place. True, the noodle’s a bit less and it is a bit pricier than other places. 🙂

  30. would like to say…having tried fish head noodles in taman desa, kuchai lama, jalan tiong nam & jalan alor…this has got to be the least desired one…
    agree with physio…over rated…and pricey too…for it’s type of location…

  31. clothes,
    I had the one at Taman Desa too and yah that is good, but I do still like this one though. 🙂

  32. Christopher

    Got one good Fish Head Noodle at Subang Jaya. Cassian kitchen cafe. they only serve with fried fish fillet. they put in evaporated milk and it’s a halal cafe. price is just about right for their environment.
    can find them on FB.

  33. Christopher,
    thanks. 🙂

  34. […] out of your head. You’re welcome.) While Malaysia is the only country with dedicated fish head dishes, fish “offal” — the bits of head, tail, and spine that are usually […]

  35. Have you tasted ah kiew tom yam & fish head noodle in Seri Kembangan or Serdang?

    The soup tastes good. Their top sellers seem to be fish head beehoon noodle and tom yum sea food noodle. I think they also have fish paste noodle.

    I have seen some customers mix the 2 for a more exotic taste.
