魚鱻魚湯專門店

January 6, 2019:

After the bowl of dan dan noodles, we headed straight for a fish soup noodles place called 魚鱻魚湯專門店 we had seen while exploring what was offered in the area. This type of cuisine is my mom’s territory. While I love the fish soup itself, my mom loves the stringy rice noodles.

This place was packed with a constant stream of customers. You eat on these blue plastic stools and pay at the front cashier when you are done.
One of the staff was so nice to carefully explain and simplify the menu and options down for us when she saw us struggling/taking a longer time to order than most others.
My mom got a bowl of fish soup with rice noodles, 扎肉(Vietnamese sausage), and 魚鰾 (swim bladder). We also got a side of green steamed choi sum veggies.
I haven’t had fresh fish swim bladder like this in probably 10 years. We just don’t eat this in Toronto anymore. It was sooo freshy, soft, tender, yet gooey at the same time. It was so good. 😁
The Vietnamese sausage was thicker and more fragrant than the ones I’ve had in Toronto. It was interesting but quite good. Appearance-wise, it looked very bland actually.
The rice noodles were not to my liking at all since they were so hard in texture. The fish soup was amazing — so flavourful and simple and clearly devoid of any MSG.
A neighbouring diner was eating a bowl of fish noodles with the entire steamed fish in it! Tail, head, bones, and all. The rice noodles (or you could also choose rice) was served separately. It looked like such a wholesome and “ching” option. If we return again, I want to try the whole fish soup as well as their fried fish skin. 😀
