my OPS bro WM has been waxing lyrical about this fried fish head noodles & thai wanton mee at beach road. so this morning we decided to meet for makan there at 10.30am on 4.2.2018.
like early time for me & no customers but they said they sold out the fish head.
deep-fried fish head can be very nice but often they are boney & no much meat, so i don’t miss it much unless i know it is good…
this fish belly soup as it turned out was very good! nice batter, fresh fish & thick cut about 6+1smaller pieces.
the broth was so very tasty, lots of ooomph! & the noodles were really interesting, lite a very tasty yeemeen perhaps al dente??? anyway very nice la & not common like the thick bee hoon (which also nice, i like).
not sure the name of this fish noodles stall…they also served tomyam fish noodles so maybe it’s the same owner as fatty thai…
like this fish noodles best this morning…
the thai wanton noodles was also good…
it looked no different from our wanton noodles…there were 2 crispy & 2soup wanton…the char siew was better, more flavourful than most wanton mee..& they gave lots of vegetables & lar pok (crispy lard)..
& the special was some spicy thai chilli powder..it looked a small teaspoonful, but it did add a subtle quite wonderful flavour to the noodles..maybe can get this powder & do at home..
very enjoyable bowl of goodness..
i would take this again.
since we were there, decided to share a S$3 char kuay teow..
it was good too, not exceptional, completely competent..
enjoyed it too..
a great outing this morning, like brunch just enjoying a few noodle dishes together & chatting & sharing.
(closed sunday, monday till 8pm)
