Before I start my food review, let me tell you some of the history of AK Noodles House so that we are more aware on how and where the products came from. Mommy said Ah Koong Restaurant started in 1987 by Mr Tan Ooi Koong in serving the most authentic fish balls. Mr Tan had continued the philosophy of his father to retain the recipe of making authentic fish balls only from fresh Wolf-herring fish (or known as Ikan Parang) and Yellowtail fish. It first opened at Johor Bahru with just 5 tables and now AK Noodles House has expanded to 6 outlets mainly in Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor with over hundreds of workers. At here, you can visit their outlets at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Tropicana City Mall, Main Place USJ 21, Evolve Concept Mall and DC Mall.
Using the best selected ingredients, AK Noodles' fish stuffs are daily made under strict hygienic condition before sent to the respective outlets in the shortest time to ensure we still get the taste of the prime top quality of fishy stuffs. Fish balls are 1 of the ingredient in the Steamboat package that I love most because they are authentic and purely made from fresh sea Wolf-herring fish, no preservatives and no boric acid added and it is in vacuum packaging. It is also prepared by combining traditional handmade and modern machine-made technique to create extremely smooth and springy texture.
Besides the steamed fish balls, they had fried fish balls and five spices (Ngoh Hiang) as above. You got to try this out as it is delicious and fresh. Fresh prawns are must to have for steamboat. The prawns given were large and juicy.
We were served with fresh Mackerel Fish too. For fish lovers like my Daddy, he finish all the fish fillets up in just seconds. He likes the taste and the sweetness of the meat. Fish is a very healthy dish too to provide us some proteins, Vitamin D and Omega 3.
Even though I don't like to eat vegetables but the freshness of the Vege Ball, makes it delicious and I don't even knew that I am eating vegetables instead. A good way to help me eating some vegetables without force for health.
The next ingredients at AK Noodles House's Special Steamboat package include my Mom's favourite Yong Tau Foo. Each pieces were quite large and were generously stuffed with AK fish paste. My Mom enjoyed her favourite Chilies, Brinjals, Ladies Finger, Bitter Melons and Tau Foo.
Fish maws (Chinese known as Fa Kau) is the commercial term for the dried bladders of large fish like croaker and sturgeon. It has no fishy taste and absorbs the flavors of the soup. For Chinese, it is considered as one of the big four delicacies of the sea. It is a good source of collagen and helps in blood circulation. Best to eat with soup or steamboat.
Bean curd skin, vege roll, dumplings, egg, Vit's noodles and vegetables were included in the package. I love to eat the noodles with eggs and my favourite foo chok. Simple and nice.
And my dining table was full of Steamboat fresh ingredients from AK Noodles House. This big portion is for 5 persons which priced at only RM158.90 nett. If you had a bigger family, then you can opt for 8 persons food which priced at RM254.30 nett.
For take-away, do get it from their outlets at Tropicana City Mall, City Square Johor Bahru, One Utama Shopping Centre, Main Place USJ 21 Subang Jaya, Evolve Concept Mall and DC Mall. AK Noodles House website is at www.aknoodles.com.my and facebook page at www.facebook.com/AKNoodlesHouse.Official.
I enjoyed eating AK Noodles Steamboat because the ingredients used indeed very fresh and the most important is, my favourite fish balls are there. The soup is make from the combination of chicken bone and anchovies which are indeed sweet with yummylicious taste. It is one of the best Steamboat meal that I had ate and will definitely recommend all my readers to take-away the Steamboat Special package by AK Noodles House.
