When it comes to fish head noodles, I’m often pretty conflicted. I mean, I love my seafood, but at the same time I am not one who likes to mess around with fish bones in a soupy dish. Sometimes it’s just too much trouble.

The perfect solution? Fish head noodle style but with deep fried fish fillet instead. This is one of the options you can get at Restaurant 6868 at Taman Kobena, Cheras.

Restaurant 6868 resides in one of the older shop lots at a relatively quiet part of Cheras. The two shop houses have seen better days, but the premise is rather cozy and hygiene standard is decent.

The menu is written on the wall, you can choose from “normal” Chinese Carp fish head noodle, Ma Yau fish head noodle, “4 Kingdom”, yin yeong, fish paste, and more. Prices are from RM 7 to RM 16 each bowl, a small bowl of Chinese Carp fish head noodle cheapest, and big portion of Ma Yau at the other end of price spectrum.

instead of fish head, we chose "ma yau" fish filets, fried suikao too

I had a small bowl of Ma Yau fish fillet noodle (RM 10) without the evaporated milk. It came with 3 chunks of pretty good size fillets. They were deep fried and fragrant, but what made it so much better was the sambal belacan that came with the fish, it was spicy and very addictive! I think I had about 3 extra servings of those belacan.

The version with evaporated milk were very good too, if you’re the type of prefers it that way. Big portion with Ma Yau fish costs RM 16 but you get 5 pieces of fillet instead of 3. I think we’ve decided that ordering big with less noodle might be the way to go next time. :D

these guys ordered the big bowls at RM 16 each, normal portion is RM 10

We also ordered some deep fried suikao (RM 1.80 each) for sharing and they were of good quality and packed with ingredients as well. You can have these with the accompanying chili sauce, but I prefer to down em with even more sambal.

I shall go come back here and perhaps try their fish maw soup next time.

  4. this one i love! never go again since i shifted out from cheras. >.<

  5. looks good! this makes me wonder about something silly though, whether anyone in kl has ever choked on a fish bone at one of these eateries and tried to sue the fish head noodle shop for financial compensation. or maybe we’re just not that kind of people, heh :D

    • Sean: As our dear leaders would probably have said, suing is not our culture. :X
