Win Soon Fish Head Noodles @ Kuchai Lama, Kuala Lumpur

>> Apr 11, 2010

This was the first place that I ate in, in Kuchai Lama. We used to joke that Geoh Soon's father owns the place, after all, its also called Ah Soon Fish Head noodles.

Anyone, I was short of places to go, so I decided to head over to Win Soon for a bowl of fish head noodles.

The lunch crowd here can be a killer. Be prepared to queue up if you're here during lunch hours. Normally we are given a paper to fill in our order while waiting. On the bright side, food comes extremely fast upon sitting down at a table.

Note: Pictures were taken using my phone, hence the quality.



Win Soon Fish Head Noodles

I went for the fish head noodles whereas my friend went for the fish paste.

Fish Paste Noodles

Both the fish head and fish paste noodles were priced at RM7.50 per bowl. The noodles here taste quite good. However, I feel that a good amount of MSG have been added into the soup. Do not that one would most certainly feel very thirsty after this. Lard fritters are also used to give the soup a nice flavour

All in all, good taste, lots of MSG, not that healthy. I do drop by occasionally to indulge in some of this guilty pleasure. I doubt the food served here is anything close to healthy, but then again, healthy food tend to taste like crap.

On a side note, we happened to stumbled into Wong Choong Han, the ex-world number 1 badminton player. Jien was brave enough to go up and ask for an autograph. I am not sure if he still has it, but it was good fun.

Note: I am certainly not a fan of MSG.


Restaurant Rating: 7/10
Pricing: About RM10 per person.

This restaurant able to conned so many people into paying service charge as the waiter and waitress conveniently tell you to write down your own order and go to the counter yourself to paid.

What kind of services they charges for if u put your own order and the waiter refuse to take the bill to you?

Haha.. so many soh chai and soh lui in the restaurant.

@Anonymous: I didn't know they charge you service charge... A meal on average cost about RM10 which I find rather fair..

Are they priced so high becoz its a prime area?

With that crowd & high MSG content, I think I prefer Goon Wah or Ah Kiew Fish Head.
