Goon Wah Restaurant (Claypot XO Fish Head Noodles) @ Kuchai Lama

Goon Wah is an extremely popular restaurant at Kuchai Lama that specializes in their Claypot XO Fish Head Noodles, a dish they proudly claim as a self-creation. Goon Wah initially started out as a buffet catering business for functions. But their dishes are so good even for catering standards they decided to convert the shoplot into a full fledged restaurant.

We decided to try as many dishes as we could so the dishes’ portion are kept to a minimum. The minimum order for the XO Fish Head Noodle (in person’s portion) is 1, followed by 2 then 5. Shown here is a two persons’ portion, quite big actually to be shared among 4-5 pax just to get a taste of it.
Compared to the other fish head noodles I have had before that are usually sweet, Goon Wah’s version tastes more towards salty by heavily utilising salted vegetables. The soup is quite clear without too much of a milkish appearance too. Delicious with soft, smooth and flavorful chunks of fish head, this is simply a must try. And you should be happy to know the soup could be refilled at FOC.

Cao Cao BBQ Lamb and Wantan Mee @ Jalan Kuchai Lama

In Kuchai Lama there’s a hawker stall called Cao Cao specialized in selling BBQ Lamb. Yes, you’re seeing this right, the hawker stall actually shares the name with a Three Kingdom’s warlord lol.
It’s a rare sight if you ask me because usually when lamb chop is mentioned, it’s associated with either Western Food stall or restaurant. When I first heard about it from a friend, it was surprisingly cheap @ RM6 per portion, and most importantly it was said to be quite tasty too.

I think I was too late to try the BBQ Lamb when it was at only RM6. The night SL and I went, the smallest portion was selling at RM8 already. It was served with some chili and mint sauce for dipping.
