1. Kaki Bola Fried Fish Head Noodle
This famous fried fish head noodle has been around for a while now and has never once been empty. Their main branch is in Taman Segar Cheras but they also have another outlet in Taman Paramount PJ. The noodles are bouncy and the fried fish head is crispy yet tender at the same time. There’s no such thing as an unpleasant fishy smell to these noodles and we are in love with it!

2. Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee
Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee has several branches in the Klang Valley. If you’re a fan of Pan Mee, this is where you go to for the best. The noodles are stretchy and chewy, while its poached egg is runny (like how most of us love it: to have it smeared all over our noodles). Their anchovies are deliciously crunchy but best of all, is their chilli. Add the amount of spice you want (go all out if you’re adventurous!) and mix it all up to enjoy a spicy and flavourful traditional Chinese favourite.
