Mr. Mak Fish Head Noodles @ Restoran Kopitiam Que-Up, Subang Perdana Court 2, UEP Subang Jaya

One fine Sunday, I was sitting at home reading The Star newspaper (which I always did without fail every weekend) before I spotted a write-up featuring this stall located in UEP Subang Jaya (I fondly refer this as Taipan area). However, I didn't get to visit on the same day due to shortage of time. My plan was shelved for a few months before I've got the opportunity to come to this area again. The thought of horrendous jam which was a nightmare which deterred me from coming here for the longest time.

To cut the story short, opportunity came one day when I had something to do in Taipan area. After that, my brother & I went to search for this place. I had no idea on where Subang Perdana Court 2 was... so it took me quite a while to locate it. Luckily the traffic was still bearable at that moment. Mr. Mak had just shifted his business here from USJ 16. I had the chance to talk with Mr. Mak (the owner, of course) for a while to check on his recommendations.

We started with a plate of deep fried fish fillet. According to Mr. Mak, he only uses ikan jenahak (anyone know the English name for this fish?) for all his fish dishes. Lightly battered and deep fried to perfection, the fillets were not oily at all and were very crispy. The plate was licked clean even before the main dish was served.

The fish head noodle came next... I was surprised to see the bowl filled with various seafood, particularly the two huge prawns. The soup was done just right with a dash of sweetness due to the usage of evaporated milk (which is used in most fish head noodles in Klang Valley). The presence of prawns and other seafood further enhanced the sweetness of the soup, making it a delight to eat. Oh did I forget to mention that the seafood was fresh too???

I thought that my brother's choice of tomyam seafood noodle was just ordinary. The soup was a tad too sour to my liking but the ingredients were fresh though.

Leo's verdict - Total bill came less than RM30. I simply love their deep fried fish fillet and of course, the fish head noodle. Never mind that you just want the regular fish head noodle or with seafood, it was still warrant a trip to eat here. Parking shouldn't be a problem as the kopitiam was located under the apartment area. The only thing that you should worry is the traffic :P

I LOVE this stall - used to eat the noodles when they were still in USJ16!! Always ordered a huge plate of their fried fish fillet - damn yummy!

OMG ... overflowing with seafood. Good good ... One thing I like bout KL's fish head noodles is the use of evap milk, or fresh milk.

Here in Ipoh (and Penang also, as far as I know) only the usual soup with salted vege is served.
