B & Best Seafood Noodles, PJ SS4


I discovered this haven for fresh fish connoisseurs way back in 2008. B & Best Seafood Noodles has a lot of different types of fish on ice and it’s one of the best places to eat a steaming hot bowl of fresh fish noodles. I was with my better half and her mom over the weekend and we decided to pop in here for a slightly luxurious breakfast.

There is a wide range of premium seafood options for the taking – everything from grouper to huge prawns and scallops in the middle. The huge board above the stall lists down prices for every type of fish and ranges from RM 13 for Senangin to RM 26 for Estuary Grouper.

Red Grouper Fish Noodles

This is what my dear’s mom went for. You can opt for noodles or rice vermicelli or a mixture of the two. I personally think rice vermicelli goes better with all types of seafood due to the delicate nature of the meat but it’s personal preference. The fish didn’t disappoint, it was tender and the broth carried enough flavor while allowing the natural fish taste to shine though.

Queensland Grouper Fish Head Noodles

My better half had this one. It’s the special of the day. Queensland Grouper is just another name for Estuary Grouper. There’s only one fish head per fish so stocks are understandably limited. The fish head meat comes pre-sliced and it tastes better than regular body meat, at least for people who like fish. The texture of the flesh from a grouper’s face is a lot more pleasing – plenty of cartilage and collagen, I would highly recommend it over the regular cuts.

Napoleon Fish Noodles

I had the humphead wrasse/so mei/蘇眉 with noodles. The fish is supple and yielding with a clean aftertaste. I liked it, but I exchanged a lot of my fish slices with my dear since I preferred the meat from a fish head. This place has a smorgasbord of fishes to suit all budgets from the humble mackerel (RM 13) to the midrange mullet fish (RM 20) right up to the Pearl Grouper (RM 26).

Whole Scallops

Whole Scallops (RM 18)
I also ordered a bowl of scallops to share. You can have this with noodles too, all the options are available with add-on noodles. The fat and juicy scallops are quite good, and fresh too. I chose this over the abalone since the latter comes in packs while the scallops are the real deal. They also have oysters, escargots, clams, and fish maw.

You’ll love this place if you enjoy a bowl of steaming fresh fish noodles. They have a range of species to fit every budget and you can even opt for the dry version (soup with seafood served separately) if you prefer. The prices are slightly higher than other dedicated estuary grouper fish noodle stalls like Ah Po Estuary Grouper and Min Yee Estuary Grouper but they have a wider selection of seafood here. The bill for the three of us came up to RM 84.50 but the fish portions are larger than it looks from the shock of green vegetables floating on top.

You’ll need to go early though. I made a Google Maps destination in my previous post, which I used to get there yesterday morning – I forgot how to go and the GPS marker is confirmed correct. :)

    • Yeah, it’s really good eh? :)

      I love the wide variety of fish that’s available here. The prices are slightly higher than comparable outlets (at least for Queensland Grouper/Estuary Grouper) but it’s fresh and the portions are generous.

    • Yup, it’s a pretty good place if you enjoy fish noodles! :)

      They also serve porridge, come to think of it. You can have porridge instead of noodles if you prefer, with the same toppings – everything from white pomfret fish to whole scallops. I first found this place in 2008, when I was living around the corner in Kelana Jaya.

    • Yeah, this is a solid place if you like fish and seafood noodles! :)

      You’ve never heard of the term “better half” before? It’s very common in English speaking countries. I had to Google what “Yobo” is. Haha! I really am not into K-pop and Korean culture in general, although I’ve been to Korea twice. I would never use the term “Yobo” – not a Korean wannabe, it doesn’t come naturally to me.

    • Yeah, they have a mixed version for RM 15 too! :)

      I had that the first time, you can’t choose the type of fish you want, they’ll just grab whatever’s available (usually the lower cost stuff) and a few prawns and cook up a batch. You might get a piece of the better fish too, depending. That’s a good option for people who want’s a cross-section of their fish. White pomfret was RM 22 that day, it can be anything from RM 18 upwards for the whole fish, depending on season.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I love to eat fresh fish noodle. WIll definitely drop by if I am in the area. Don’t think I am familiar with PJ SS4 area. I usually hang around SS2.

    • Yeah, me too! :)

      I just love fish noodles. I only like this kind though, I can’t get behind the ones with milk inside (Cheras style). I prefer the fresh ones with clear stock. SS 4 is really close to SS 2 though, I used to live around SS 6 (Dataran Prima) and I’ll still drive down to SS 2.

    • Yeah, it’s really good eh? :)

      There’s a lot of vegetables here, which covers up the fish a bit, but the portions of fish is quite generous here.

    • Yeah, this is a lovely dish to eat in the morning! :)

      I’ve had it for lunch too, not as good. Something about the cooler morning weather makes this better in the mornings.

    • Yeah, I know how that feels! :)

      We’ve been trying to go early to some places too but couldn’t make it. This time we went early coz we went out at 7:30 am.
