Try Norway salmon fish head noodles if you're tired of eating soong yee fish head noodles

Norway Salmon Fish Head Noodles, despite its fancy name, is a hawker stall without a signboard. The menu is displayed on a wall -- only eight items are listed, together with colourful pictures. Side orders such as bitter gourd soup and hot & sour soup are shown on another wall. Adam Cheong, the owner, explains that salmon fish head is used in the curry fish head noodles as well. I order two bowls: the salmon fish head noodles and the curry fish head noodles. Service is pretty fast. The salmon fish head -– deep fried -- is more meaty than soong yee fish head. But the letdown is the soup. It isn’t as flavourful as that of other more famous fish-head-noodle eateries such as Goon Wah Restaurant in Kuchai Lama and Ikar in Bandar Menjalara. The curry version is a kissing cousin of regular curry mee hoon but the salmon fish head lifted the dish a notch above average. Considering the reasonable prices, Norway Salmon Fish Head Noodles is worth coming to. Rating: 3.5/5.

Parking outside the stall is relatively easy. As a last resort, you can park in Crystal Crown or Brem Mall and cross the road to the stall.
