Under the milky way

Food4Thot's recent post reminded me of the fish head noodles I enjoyed so very much at the famed Woo Pin in Taman Desa.

Woo Pin is packed to the brim from mornings till about 2PM when the workers start putting chairs and tables away to make way for Ho A One's seafood steamboat in the evening, which is equally popular.

The order du jour is the standard fish head noodles with milky soup (RM6 for regular, RM8 for large). Previous visits had me hankering after for the homemade fish paste, bouncier than Beyonce! But unfortunately this time around, they had run out so we had to make do with deep fried fish head.
Everyone else on the table ordered this and proclaimed it tasty, but we all had trouble with the amount of bones that riddled the fish pieces. That just spells L-A-Z-Y, I know, for real fish head aficionados would scoff at our gripe and say it's a necessary evil.

I'm averse to milk (and all by-products betraying its lactose origin) so went with clear soup instead. Loved the engrossing sour combination of thick fish stock and preserved vegetables.

Extra heat-generating factor came in the form of the lovely house sambal.
Suggest you get here early to minimise the table-hovering experience and to not miss out on them fish paste!

One of them better ones, that's for sure. But always so crowded! I like the fish paste here too.
