Having visited the restaurants a few times now, we observed that the place is extremely busy on weekends, and that sometimes people have to queue outside for a table. But, thankfully the service is very good, so we usually get served within 10 minutes of placing our order. Another important thing to me is hygiene of the place, and this place definitely passes the test.
Menu with prices
One of the specialties here is the Fried Fishcake (RM5.50), which is cooked to order, so it is still warm when it arrives at your table. The fishcakes has the nice bouncy texture with a golden crisp outer layer. Plus it's not greasy from the deep frying... amazing! The gorgeous fishcakes are served with a spicy/tangy chilli sauce dip. If you look around the restaurant, you would see a plate of this on almost every table!
The fishballs here are served with a huge variety of noodles. Take your pick from hor fun (white flat noodles), tang hoon (glass noodles), wantan noodles, loh shee fun (rat tail noodles), flat hakka noodles or yellow noodles. The fishballs here at Jin Man are made from local swordfish (Ikan Parang or Sai To Yue) and have an extremely nice springy texture to it. With more than 25 years experience (since 1985) in producing fishballs, its no wonder the fishballs here are good. And Baby C loves the fishballs here tremendously, it has now become a weekend ritual to come here for her fishball fix.
I tried the Dry Wantan Noodles (RM4.00), served with a bowl of fishball in soup once. The wantan noodles were springy and had a nice bite to it.
My favorite here has to be the Fishball Tang Hoon (glass noodles) (RM4.50). The tasty soup is flavoured by tong choy (the brown preserved vegetable you see in the picture) and it reminds me of the Tang Hoon Fishball Noodles I used to have very regularly when I was younger at the Triangle Square (Sam Kok Tei) in Seremban. You have the option of adding fish maw to your noodles (additional RM1.50 for 3 pieces) and this is highly recommended. I find that it makes the soup taste a lot better!
