Best Fish Head Curry in Ipoh

Written by Updated ago

Commonly served in a claypot filled with a delicious melange of vegetables, a good pot of fish head curry should have a rich depth of flavour, alongside a perfectly balance between the spiciness and milkiness. The gravy should also be worth fighting over for, as it is a common practice to overdose one's steamy rice bowl with this rich side. Put all these together into one hearty meal and there is really no need for extras or condiments. Whatever the reason may be, we're confident that you will enjoy this list of the best recommended fish head curry in Ipoh.

    Assam House is one of the few rare halal places for a good set of curry fish head. More specifically, asam curry fish head. Served in a piping hot claypot with a good load of tofu puff and lady's finger. The curry too has a rich and robust flavour, which is extremely addictive. Slurping on the remaining soup doesn't sound so crazy after all. 

    Tips

    Set lunch for 2, 4, 6, 8 pax available.

    Things to expect

    A rather old looking restaurant.

    Best with

    Oyster Sauce Baby Kailan and iced lemon tea.

    San Chai Restaurant's curry fish head has been rather well known to locals for its rich and spicy flavour. Done so with a giant portion of groupa fish and a good blend of fiery-sweet spice, the dish will require either additional water or perhaps a side of toasts. Served with a good load of lady's finger, onions, tangy tomatoes, tofu puff and a handful of mint leaves. 

    Tips

    May be close on alternate Mondays.

    Things to expect
