Fish Head Noodles

It's time again. A week of secondary. And an annoying week of primary 24 hours, 7 days a week on-call support. The standard life of anyone in the IT support line. My last dinner before jail time was fish head noodles with UnkaLeong. *Lucky lucky* because I will be skipping the noodle makan'ing session coming Sunday (jail time ma).

I have no idea how to get to this place, but it's along Jalan Raja Laut, turn left at the junction opposite of the PAS (yes, the political party) building. Ong Lai is on the left, BSG (back street) style.

When I took a sip of the soup I didn't quit figure the taste. Nice and clean, ... but something else. Then UnkaLeong mentioned the Chinese cooking wine. The usual fish head soup I have is with tomatoes and preserved vegetables. This version didn't have any of those, but it had extra chunks old ginger just enough to kill of the fish smell but not spice'n up the soup.

Potato leaves with belacan. This I really like though I found it a wee bit oily. I also like it because it wasn't too spicy. Some vegetables fried with belacan can turn out like vegetable with sambal!

The bill came up to RM35 in total for the noodles, vegetables, and a pot of tea for two which I found reasonable. I'll definitely come back for more of their fish head dishes. I just love the fact that they use fresh BIG fish heads with a lot of fish fat. *yum yum*

Edited: Ohh I just came across TummyThoz's post on Ong Lai. Makes me want to go back even sooner! I need to escape the jail!

Jail? What jail?


i used to go there everytime.
Few yrs back, Lydia Sum ate there too.
I loved that place a lot. That place was basically there since my mum's era...i think..
But the food there has just become quite pricey and the the quality is not as great anymore...
but the steam fish head is still very nice...that i must insist!!!

i think i makan here before when i was a kid...the most memorable part being the rundown setting and ohh...the fascinating drains...dunno whether still there or not...interesting food too.


Aiya, missed this out :(
