Fish Head Noodles Soup

Lunch is Fish Head Noodles Soup...So blessed to have one last fish head in the mind works overtime. Told the meat eater, let's have fish head noodles soup for lunch. He said no problem as long as I pick the bones for him. So I gave him the meaty part. That's how much his wifey loves him 😜. I tried to replicate the taste from the famous fish head noodles stall and also our favourite. Taste is almost there but my soup is not milky in looks coz I didn't boil the fish bone long enough. The soup comprises of fried fish head ( I kept the meaty part last) Napa cabbage, tomato preserved salty Vege,  sour plum, and Chinese rice wine. Lunch taste good when one is exceptionally hungry.

I am so proud of myself, taste good even the meat eater says it is good
