fishball noodles in Yong Peng…
Yong Peng, a quiet little place which took around 45-50 mins to reach from JB via the NS highway, has always been associated with express buses stopping by for a break before continuing the journey down south or up north. However, when it comes to food, it’s also linked with the foochow dishes and fishball noodles. If you drive into the town area (which is just a main road with shophouses in between), you will notice many coffeeshops/restaurants offering these dishes. I always stopped by for a helping of either one when going back to JB.
Here’s the fishball noodles. The soup is clear and it’s sweet and I don’t feel any ‘ajinomoto’ added. The fishballs are also soft and tender. It’s superb when you dipped it into their home-made chilli.
Normally, the folks always order fishcakes as a side dish. The meat is also tender, the skin is crispy and overall, it was very appetizing. You definitely want to finish the entire plate, after you took the first bite!
Last but not least, this is the place I ate and heard that this is the famous one.
