Jin Hua Fish Head Bee Hoon 金华鱼头米粉
Good food is always worth the wait, not just having the patience to queue up at the stall but the patience starts right at the car park, the jam packed car park and number of cars waiting for the limited parking slots are simply out of proportion. However, everyone was well prepared for the wait, looking forward the subtle taste of the assortment dishes right at the Maxwell food Centre. The food attraction at the Food Centre is just like a super magnet alluring the public to her charm and making everyone fall in love with her, as do the glutton family.
Waiting and queuing was the game in this food centre, whoever feverishly craved for good food would likely be rewarded. We went for the Jin Hua Fish head bee hoon, as the stall never failed to attract the long queue during peak and non-peak hour, a clear testament of the popular food. The fish head bee hoon is of Cantonese style, with the broth being a whitish base enriched with evaporated milk. Though, I prefer the broth without the milk to allow us to really taste the original sweetness and flavor of the soup.
The soup was milky rich, tangy, tasteful and blended well with the noodles. Perhaps the richness of the soup was too overwhelming that half way through the meal the palatable bowl of noodle was substituted by the cloying feeling. The fish slices were fresh and nicely fried to perfection, with the smoothness of the white noodles; providing the patron a bowl of noodle with great satisfaction.
Of course, the glutton family never settled down with just the fish head bee hoon, we had so much of the good foods at the food centre that all our waist lines were stretched over the limit. Before we headed back home, my glutton princess almost throw all of us off the chair by suggesting we continued with a café visit for some desserts…truly lives up to be our glutton princess…sigh..
