I enjoyed it…

I saw the photograph of the fish soup in front of the stall when I was here that afternoon and it sure looked so good. I made up my mind right away that I would drop by there to give it a try – after all, it is just round the corner from my house, very near! Unfortunately, it had been raining quite a bit these past few days and I was not able to make it till yesterday morning.

To be frank, I was a little bit disappointed when it (RM6.50)…

…was served – it seemed a lot nicer in the aforementioned photograph.

I thought I saw freshly-made oval-shaped fish balls (like those freshly-made minced meat ones) and in the end, I only got two factory-made frozen ones from the supermarket. Actually, they can easily make their own nowadays – we can buy the fish paste (from Jakar, Sarikei) and roll them ourselves.

There were some sliced fish fillet…

…and thankfully, they were nice, no smell, nice fish texture so I had no complaint about it and yes, I loved the meatballs!

Normally, for fish or fish ball soup, I would ask for tang hoon (glass noodles) to go with it but I did not see that in the list, only mee (noodles), bihun and kway teow and I opted for the latter…

It was nice but I do prefer tang hoon. Perhaps I did not look carefully – I must make it a point to do so the next time I drop by here for this.

Yes, you can bet your bottom dollar that I shall be back there again soon for more of this…

…because I enjoyed it so much, the soup especially. It was love at first sip and believe you me, I had to refrain from asking for a second bowl!

In case you are wondering, this is in this BIG food court and it is the stall at the back, the one to the right…

…where I once had the lor mee and the mee sua and both weren’t too bad either. This is the left half and there are two more stalls in the section on the right, this one and the kampua mee stall – the rest were vacant and sadly, the whole place looks like this most of the time, almost deserted…unlike those days before the pandemic.

GRAND WONDERFUL FOOD COURT (2.309601, 111.845163)…

…is located along Jalan Pipit, off Jalan Dr Wong Soon Kai, on your right. You can also go in via Jalan Pipit from Jalan Pahlawan – go straight ahead till you get to it on your left.

  1. Usually photographs are for illustrations purposes only. Never put too high hopes of what you see in the photographs is what you get when you ordered it. Your bowl of kway teow with the clear soup must be real good that makes you wanting to go back for more. Thankfully you enjoy what you have.

    In those franchise restaurants, yes but not at the food stalls in the coffee shops. Here, they simply take the snapshots using their smartphones and print for display so usually, they are not really nice. What you see is what you get…unless they take the photos from somewhere else, not their own.

  2. I would enjoy such soup too. As long the ingredients are fresh and no fishy smell, I am up to it. True, tang hoon taste better with all those fish balls and slices.

    Very nice, so refreshing. I do enjoy clear soups so much! Bihun should be good too but I think tang hoon is the best.

  3. Photographs can be deceiving. The bowl of noodle with all the ingredients look very delicious. I too prefer tang hoon or mee sua. Sometimes they may have tang hoon but you will need to ask. Hope there will be an increase in the number of stalls in this food court.

    They only need one good anchor tenant to draw in the crowd. Too bad they lost the Seremban guy before – his dishes were really good. If he had been given more publicity, I am sure the place would have been a lot more popular. This stall is worth promoting too – not bad, the things I have tried. Next time, I’ll ask for tang hoon.

  4. I saw two pieces of tomatoes there and the soup does not look oily at all…..

    I’m glad they did not put a lot of the tomatoes – there was just a hint of the taste in the refreshing soup. If it had been too strong on the tomato taste, I might not have enjoyed it so much. No, not oily at all, another plus point in its favour, very nicely done!

  5. Restaurants do not do themselves a good service when they advertise photos different to what the consumer receives.

    Indeed! Who’s bluffing who? They may get away with it once, never again! These days, one can just google and get the best pictures from there and use though it may be a bane, not really a blessing.

  6. Wish I have something like this in the morning available.

    I had something like this again today, very nice too…but RM10.00 plus RM1 for the noodles of my choice. I think I’d much sooner stick to this one, much more affordable and just as nice, if not nicer.
