Jin Wu Men Restaurant 金五们 @ Icon City, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

Jin Wu Men Restaurant 金五们 is one of the latest additions to Icon City at Bukit Mertajam... occupying a big space on the upper floor unit. The menu is in fact simple and straight-forward... offering fish noodles with a variety of toppings to be added. Apart from the classic broth, there are options like Tomato soup, Mala and Milky soup etc. While most toppings are nothing out of the ordinary, some can be quite interesting and uncommon. The prices however, are on the steeper side and offer lesser value in return. The place is comfortable though, if you don't mind paying a little more.

Tomato Soup with 3 types of Add-Ons (Rm 19.80)

San Xian Soup with 3 Types of Add-Ons (Rm 19.80) and Extra Shrimp Paste (Rm 6.80)

Signature Fried Fish (Rm 12.80)

Sour Plum Juice (Rm 15.90/ 2 pax)

The Tomato Soup is one of the most-ordered soup bases; we decided to try it with Squid Flower, Minced Meat and imitation Abalone slices. The Tomato soup was thick and rich, with a balanced medley of sourness and sweetness but it was a little monotonous towards the end as the soup became almost too thick. San Xian Soup on the other hand, was more tummy-comforting. It was like any other classic clear soup and worked well with the Mi Xian (thick Vermicelli Noodles). We washed down with a serving of the Sour Plum Juice... which was very refreshing and delicious. Our meal for 2 pax came up to be a little less than Rm 80.... not exactly sure if we are willing to pay that amount next time though (for this spread).
