I was food spotting in Taman Sutera Utama when I stumbled upon this scene. The sign board says fish and soup and since I wasn't hungry, I thought this would do just fine for a quick lunch.
So I pulled over, and got down from the car to take a closer look. I was pleasantly surprised that Fei Biao 飞镖 Famous Dart offers fried fish in the milky kind of soup - my favourite style of fish soup that I have not seen in Johor before.
So I ordered this RM7.80 bowl of fried fish soup with thick bee hoon (rice vermicelli) - the way I am used to back in Singapore.
As you can see in the picture, Famous Dart's fish soup is garnished with cut spring onions, tomatoes, slices of green ginger, and shreds of preserved cabbages. What is not in the picture are small bits of grilled salted fish, and pork crackles.
It comes with five pieces of this fried hefty chunk of breaded fresh fish meat.
The fish meat is super fresh. I could only taste its natural sweet flavour and feel its soft, juicy, tender and smooth texture. It has none of that tasteless, flaky, dry and stiff feel we sometimes get from stalls that use frozen fish.
The milky soup is just the right consistency - not too watery nor too thick. It has just the correct sweetness and flavour. The traces of pork lard added to the creamy flavour of the soup.
Famous Dart 飞镖 Fei Biao's fried fish bee hoon soup is as good as any of the best that I have tasted.
If only this also comes with those fiery hot cut red chili paddies. I love the masochistic pleasure of burning my tongue with those fiery hot cut red chili paddies and then dousing it and soothing the pain with milky soup and tender chunks of fresh fish. Never mind, that's just me. Ignore.
