Fresh fish and crispy noodles
Oh my, I dropped by Chinatown today and immediately headed straight for the Chinatown Complex Hawker for my lunch. Initially I was walking around and trying to see what was nice to eat, when I suddenly remembered that it had been ages since I went to this stall that sells really nice fish head noodles and crispy "san mee". I was glad that it was still there and in the same place.
Sitting down while waiting for my "san mee" made me recalled how my family would usually come here for dinner after visiting my grandparents who were living here like 20 years ago. That time, this stall was really popular and it was always crowded when we go for dinner. As it was slightly more expensive than normal during that time, it was not something that we would eat everything, but something that I looked forward to.
I cannot remember how it actually taste like anymore, and it was nice to go through the old taste again. As I tasted the crispy noodles soaked with the black and slightly peppery gravy, the taste of the old days slowly came back to my mind. The sauce was still as flavourful as before and the crispy noodles were deep fried only upon ordering. The fish was very fresh slices.
For those who like steam fish head, I saw that there are 3 different styles here, hong kong styled, black bean sauce and one with chillis. For a mere $13, the fish head portion is pretty big but I am not sure if it was half or the whole head. I would probably come back for this again next time.
