Restaurant Goon Wah XO Fish Head Noodle 冠华XO鱼头米 is one of a hidden gem in Kuchai Lama. Located slightly off from the main area or directly opposite KFC drive thru is a place where you would want to consider to pay a visit.
Came here during lunch time and it is pack with hungry goers. It was so hot that the lady owner introduce their signature lemon asam drink, and ended up I ordered 2 glasses.
There are 2 signature item that you must not miss in here is their Claypot Lou Shi Fun and their XO Fish Head Noodle.
IT is quite different compare to any other traditional Claypot lou shi fun that I have eaten. Pretty unique and I am loving it. Filled with bits and chunks of park lard, dried shrimp and with their special marinated mince meat. After you mince it all together, you will have an even taste. Texture of lou shi fun is slightly chewy to my liking, not too salty yet very fragrant. To make the taste extra punch, add in their special home made chili. It is spicy and pairs very well.
This is their in house specialty XO Fish Head Noodle . Serve in pippin hot claypot, filled with yam slices, milky soup base, fried fish head in it. A perfect bowl to start off with as their noodle is unique with it silky smooth texture yet slightly thinner than laksa noodle and light chewy. Soup base is like from a “tong dai” clear soup base with hint of sourness, milk flavour and flavour is just right.
End our meal with their Guinness chicken wings. Perfectly cooked and marinated where it is caramlise, fragrant and regreted did not order more. These are the 3 dishes that must order if you do come to this outlet. Our total bill is around RM 52.
Quite a nice place for a meal.
