Ah Koong Restaurant is started in 1987 by Mr Tan Ooi Koong in serving the most authentic fishballs. Mr Tan continues the philosophy of his father, and staying true to retain the recipe of making authentic fishballs only from fresh Wolf-herring fish (locally known as Ikan Parang). In the early years, Ah Koong Restaurant was first opened at Johor Bahru with just only five tables. Today, Ah Koong Restaurant has expanded to a total of six outlets, mainly in Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor with over hundreds of workers.
Mr Tan strongly uphold the commitment of using the best selected ingredients, as well as providing the highest level of customer service. Therefore, Ah Koong's fishy stuffs are daily made from freshest local Wolf-herring and Yellowtail fish. For quality guaranteed, Ah Koong's fishy stuffs are made and prepared in Ah Koong's factory under strict hygienic condition. The ready-prepared fishy stuffs are then sent to the respective outlets in the shortest time in order to ensure our customers still get to taste the prime top quality of fishy stuffs.
In these few years, Ah Koong's authentic fishballs have attracted many customers from all over the land and have also won the good reputation among them. Hence, we would like to express our gratitude to our loyal customers from their endless support. Ah Koong has specially designed two types of food-freshness packaging: Vacuum Packaging and Seal Packaging due to popular demands of customers for buying Ah Koong's fishy stuffs as their homemade dishes or steamboat ingredients.
Ah Koong's crispy fishcake which has always appealed to many customers is another start of Ah Koong's specialty. Ah Koong's crispy fishcake with all the authentic ingredients has a nice textural treat, with its golden brown surface, decently crispy coating and bouncy centre. A crispy sound escaped from mouth, followed by the wonderful chewy mouth feel with every bite on it. Aside from springy fishballs and crispy fishcakes, Ah Koong Restaurant serves an astonishing array of fishy stuffs and seafood as well as various types of noodles for our customers to make their own choice. Their favourite dishes will be served in a clear soup made from chicken bones and anchovies. Ah Koong's clear soup is cooked for at least 4-5 hours to fully develop the great flavour.
