Swee Kee Fishhead Noodle House, or more commonly known as "Ka Soh" by regulars, is one of those old-school restaurants that's been around for ages. Most of their customers are regulars who've been eating at the restaurant since the 70's. While their food is generally familiar, comforting and still quite delicious, old-timers generally acknowledge that the quality has definitely dropped over the years.
The Deep-fried Seafood Beancurd ($8.50) was a nice combination of mashed seafood paste and beancurd constituents, battered and fried to a golden crisp on the outside but retaining moisture inside.
The Stir-Fried Kailan with Garlic ($6.50) consists of crunchy greens coated in a garlicky sauce that's both aromatic and delicate.
The Sliced Fish Noodle Soup ($5.90 for the 1-person portion), while substantial and fragrant, was lacking in depth of flavour. That said, the fish slices were fresh and plentiful.
