During Hari Raya, around my housing area in Taman Sri Sinar, I found that not only Malay or mamak restaurant closed for the holiday but most Chinese kopitiam there also closed for a day. I think this is because almost all their workers are Indonesian that also celebrate Hari Raya. So, they have to give a day off to their workers.
Since my usual kopitiam was closed for the day, I'll have to look for other eatery. At first I plan to go to my favourite Vietnamese restaurant (Ka Hing Special Vietnamese Flat Rice Noodle Restaurant) nearby but then I noticed a new eatery opened next to it. It's been quite a long time I didn't passed by this side so I didn't know there's a new place here.
Restoran Fam Cham Mei (返寻味) literally means come back for more after you've tasted it once. It seems that they specialized in Fried Fish Head Noodle but they are also selling other fish related noodles such as Seafood Noodle, Mud Carp Fish Head Noodle, Raw Fish Head Noodle, Crispy Fish Fillet Noodle, Fish Paste Noodle, Fish Maw Noodle and also fried and soup dumplings.
What caught my eyes is of course the the Fish Maw Noodle because not many restaurants are selling it like this way. So, I ordered a bowl of Fish Maw Noodle soup. I've given an option whether or not to add vapourized milk into the soup. I chose the former, which I regretted because added milk will make me not able to taste the natural taste of the soup.
Nevertheless the Fish Maw Noodle (meehoon to be correct) is not too bad. Still I can taste the unique taste of the fish maw. The soup is not too salty or sourish like some other fish head noodle soup that I've tasted before. I woould come again to eat a bowl without the milk. Should taste a lot better to the already nice bowl of Fish Maw Noodle.

If you can take spiciness, be sure to put or dip some of their homemade chili sauce. It is very hot. I started perspiring and my nose started too be runny, which is a good thing because after that my breath is a lot easier. I have a mild sinus problem. It's better than eating wasabi.

I also ordered friend dumplings as side. It's nice but nothing to shout about.
Fried Dumplings (RM 5 for five pieces)
It's a blessing in disguise after all when my usual kopitiam closed. Which enabled me to discover a new eatery just 10 minutes walk from my place. I would surely come back for more as the name of the restaurant meant Fam Cham Mei (返寻味).
