By now, those who followed me on Twitter would have known that Saucer suffered from a week-long stomach infection a couple of weeks ago. So, once he was well and healthy, we decided to go for something that was not too harsh on the stomach, yet appetizing enough. We decided on Village Fish Head Noodle at Kota Damansara.
Village Fish Head Noodle
We went on a Saturday afternoon and found the place to be rather empty since it’s still new. I loved their fuss-free, one-page menu which made ordering so much easier. The most expensive item was priced at RM15.
That’s me in white blouse!
The owner, who’s also the chef, gave us some recommendations on what to order. The fish head noodles came in a few variants, depending on what ingredients you wanted to go with the noodles. There’s a choice of prawns, abalone or just plain fish head on its own.
Fresh Prawn and Fish Head Mee Hoon (RM15)
The first dish we ordered was the Fresh Prawn and Fish Head Mee Hoon, which came in a rather large bowl with thick and aromatic soup. I loved the texture of the vermicelli noodles which could withstand the test of time. *LOL* We took quite some time to take photographs of the noodles and by the time we ate them, the noodles were still firm without being soggy. The soup was slightly sour due to the tomatoes, yet savoury with the taste of fish head. Of course, there’s a hint of milk in it too, but you could always opt for the non-milk version of the soup if you’re lactose intolerant.

The Fresh Prawn and Sliced Abalone Mee Hoon came with 2 halves of a large fresh prawn. The prawn was fresh and easy to remove from the shell. Not to forget was the fish head, which gave so much flavour to the soup. The fish head was deep fried, so the edges were still slightly brown and crispy. Though I’m not a fan of fish head, I enjoyed this thoroughly, and drank most of the soup as well!

Apart from the noodles, we were being adventurous that day and ordered some side dishes as well.
Of all the side dishes ordered, my favourite would be the Fried fish paste tauhu (bean curd) and the Friend wan tan. The bean curd was a homemade recipe, with a mixture of fish paste and some vegetables. They were good even without any sauce! I had at least 3 pieces of them myself.

The Fried wan tan was also marvellous! The skin was just thin enough to result in extremely crispy texture. Pretty addictive too!

The deep fried meat ball turned out to be a little soft inside, and upon inquiring, we found out that the pork meat inside was mixed with tuna. How unique!

At the end of it, Saucer was a happy man, to be able to eat normal food after days of porridge and bread. We liked the soup and the noodles, so we’ll definitely be back again for more.
