Fish fillets Mee Hoon soup (rice vermicelli noodle soup) 鱼肉米粉

I like to eat the famous Seremban‘s Fish Head Mee Hoon soup, as the soup is spicy (the spiciness came from liberal use of pepper) and little creamy by adding evaporated milk, which I couldn’t find in any other type of noodles soup. I tried to cook this noodle soup recently but replaced fish head (not my kid’s favorite) with fish fillets instead.

I've been craving for this sourish noodles soup for a few days now and you posted it. There look wonderful. Like your kids I prefer it with fish fillets rather than fish heat. I think it is time for me to go and get some fish to cook this :)

Wah my favourite~~~~~ i will always order this when I'm out, with non fried fish, because they normally use catfish for fried ones. For non fried ones most of the time batang.

Hi Sonia
May I know what brand of vermicilli you use for soup?
I find some brands have powdery taste.
