Fish Head Noodle Soup - Taman Midah Food Stall, Cheras


The popular fish head noodle soup for me is always the famous one that you can get at the Taman Desa area which have branches at Pudu, or near Salak Selatan area. My mom though claims that the fish head noodle soup that caught her heart was the one near Cheras Leisure Mall. The shop was called Kaki Bola (not sure which road). I have not yet try it out and would like to try it one day.

Surprisingly, I found two stalls selling fish head noodle soup on the same row at the main road of Taman Midah, Cheras. Last time there were only one. My friend decided to try it out from one of the stalls (the older stall). This stall is situated just in front of the Magnum 4D shop. This stall not only sell fish head noodle soup but also Tom Yam noodle soup and char kueh teow.


The soup was not bad. This stall put lots of ginger into the soup which makes it full of ginger flavour. I find it not bad as I love ginger. :) Overall, I would say that the fish head noodle soup was just okay. What spoil the bowl of noodle was the fish. I don't really like the fish they put in. The fish was meatless and not crunchy. Only one piece of the fish was with meat and the rest were bones. I think fish plays quite an important role in the fish head noodle soup, don't you think?


On the other hand, the other stall sells only fish head noodle soup. A few bottles of the "siu heng" wine, evaporated milk, and rice vermicelli was displayed on the stall's shelf. This stall looks more "professional" I would say because they only focus in selling fish head noodle soup. I didn't try that stall because was too full to try them.

Yeah... it's really irritating when there are too many bones in the fish.

You should try the one at Pudu, ADAI Fish Head Village, if i remember correctly, the one near Pudu Plaza. There is a 7-11 at a corner and the shop was few block away. You should check it out. Business hour start from afternoon. Price are slightly high but anyway it is good food..

I agree with you. Fish head noodles should contain a bit more fish la. The soup looks rather..hmm...creamy?

This is definately NOT Kaki Bola fish head restaurant! Can tell by the bowl and plastic utensils cos Kaki Bola uses only ceramic ones. Check out this site for review on the REAL Kaki Bola restaurant: http://kaizophrenia.blogspot.com/2006/10/restoran-kaki-bola_29.html

Cookie, you shd really try the XO fish head at Kaki Bola. too awesome to put to words
