Ka Soh Restaurant

Ka Soh Restaurant, fish head noodles, foodie trail,
I never liked fish head noodles until I tasted it at Ka Soh Restaurant. An old school, no nonsence but only good food place with a few branches, our fave is still the branch in Imbi area. There’s plenty of parking within the grounds itself so lunch or dinner, its no surprise that this place is often packed.

There’s plenty to choose from the menu but some of the must haves are as listed on the bunting that greets you at the entrance of the restaurant. One advise I would give is to visit Ka Soh with a few more friends because chances are you will want to have more than just one dish. 

The acar RM5 at Ka Soh is easily one of the bets in town. Housemade and it reminds me a lot of the acar that I grew up eating in Penang. Crunchy, spicy and slight sour with a lovely bite from the generous toss of ground peanuts and sesame.

A must if one were to dine at Ka Soh alone, the fish head noodles are a must. While the soup looks creamy, rest assured there is no milk in it. The creaminess is a result from the slow boiling of the fish head bones resulting in a rich creamy broth. The price is a tad steep though. RM136 for this bowl for 4 persons but its all pure goodness of fresh fish both plain and fried with coarse meehoon and a generous serving of green vegetables.

A simple stir fry but terribly addictive is the Lotus Root with Macadamia Nuts RM16. Sliced lotus root, celery and sweat peas cooked creamy and savoury fermented beancurd. I must say that Ka Soh is rather generous with the macadamia nuts which isn’t cheap. Highly recommended.

If you love frogs, then the steam frog with essence of chicken (RM26 for the frog and RM10 for the Essence of Chicken). The dish arrives piping hot and the bottle of essence of chicken is poured onto the frog right before we start eating. Tender pieces of frog and its delicious sauce calls for a bowl of white rice.

Of course our white rice also comes in well to compliment Ka Soh’s (signature) steam fish dish. The plate of Steam Song Fish Head with Black Bean Sauce is priced based on market rate for the fish. Our plate is RM45 which I deem as reasonably priced. Steamed just right with a right mix of black bean and chili, eat this while its still piping hot. I do wish that the fish was also served with some tea lights to keep the dish warm because it actually did turn cold really fast in the Ka Soh’s cold restaurant.

For those who love Prawn Paste Chicken RM21, look no further because  one of the best ones in town is in Ka Soh. Well marinated and deep fried for a crispy skin, this is finger licking good. This also proved to be popular with both old and young as we observed from the tables around us.

After all these year, Ka Soh still whips out homely food. Service is reasonably fast and definitely very friendly waiters. Highly recommended if you are looking for a place to dine with the elders. Not the cheapest nor the most expensive but I would certainly say value for money.
