Fish Head Curry @ Restoran Kari Kepala Ikan (Jalan Pudu), KL

We came here because a friend was waxing lyrical about a fish head curry nearby to Sek Yuen. The restaurant’s name “Kari Kepala Ikan (Jalan Pudu)” is simple, but the tagline says it all – Fish Head Curry is indeed a favourite food of Malaysians.

The curry here is prepared the Chinese-style, which means the gravy is thicker with coconut milk, aromatic and the taste inclines to savoury sweet with a spiciness instead of hot and sour. And as per the standard across most of the FHC restaurants, the firm and fleshy grouper head is used.
At RM30 per serving like this, I think the price is quite high and it’s the main gripe I have. In places like Kepong and Puchong, you could easily get a significantly larger portion for RM25 or less. As for the taste, I thought it somewhat met expectations and the fish head given was fresh. But overall it was hardly anything impressive considering the intense competition of FHC in KL.

Heun Kee Charcoal Claypot Chicken Rice @ Jalan Yew, Pudu

Not long ago a reader suggested me to try Heun Kee Claypot Chicken Rice at Pudu. It is true that I haven’t blogged about a good claypot chicken rice for a long time so I guessed, why not. As it turns out, not only the recommendation was spot on, I was glad to find out that their claypot fish head curry is very delicious too.

Even though the smallest order is meant for 1 pax @ RM9, the portion is large enough to be shared comfortably between two people. Heun Kee does not skimp on the ingredients as you could see the rice is topped with generous amount of chicken meat and Chinese sausage. A small plate of salted fish is provided separately and mixed according to your own liking.

The unmistakable aroma of charcoal with a whiff of rice wine greets your senses as soon as the claypot hit the table – inviting you to dig in. Compared to the other claypot chicken rice I had previously, the notable difference for me is in the rice itself. Here, it is cooked to a light and fluffy texture so soft that you don’t need to dig hard to stir the ingredients around. The most savored part of the dish is no doubt the crispy part of the rice at the bottom of the claypot, which tastes extra flavorful but not burnt or hard.

F4 Fish Head Restaurant @ USJ, Subang Jaya

Now, before you get the idea that this fish head curry restaurant belongs to the now-defunct Taiwanese boy band F4, let me just tell you they are not the owners. In fact, this popular restaurant used to operate at Chan Sao Lin before moving to Subang Jaya – not sure how long ago though. Like many of you I am also baffled at the name choice of “F4″ but I think we could all agree it is rather catchy and easy to remember lol. Like Brother Yat, F4 Fish Head Restaurant is pretty hidden within the Subang Jaya Industries Park, one of the least places you would expect to find good food.

Also, this is the place you would want to come as early as possible especially during weekends, as you can see the crowd could get really crazy even they are almost as big as a multipurpose hall.. Service during peak hour is not an issue because they are quite efficient, but finding any free tables could be a problem.

Fish Head Curry @ Desa Aman Puri, Kepong

It was a rainy evening, which was also the best time to have something warm and spicy. If it came with soup, that’s even better! So, I searched the Internet for good food around Kepong and I came across this Fish Head Curry stall, Ho-HoBi in Desa Aman Puri. It had good reviews and was also featured in 8TV’s HoChak. I watched that particular episode online and decided to try it because it looked really good! Moreover, Desa Aman Puri is only 10 minutes away. So, there’s no reason not to go!
