    If you're lurking around downtown KL for a good curry fish head, look no further. Restoran Kari Kepala Ikan that is located at Jalan Pudu serves amazing curry fish head that leans slightly towards the Chinese style. The gravy is slightly thicker thanks to the use of coconut milk and the overall balance of the curry is more sweet-savoury than spicy-sour. A fresh and firm grouper's head is also used as the star of the dish. 

    Tips

    No reservation, do come early to avoid queuing.

    Things to expect

    A standard Chinese 'dai-chao' dining experience with delicious curry fish head.

    Best with

    Hot tea.

    Although Lau Heong Seafood Restaurant's curry fish head is pre-cooked, it still is pretty damn good. Served with a plenty of vegetables and tofu puff, the creamy and mild curry certainly does go incredibly well with rice. Also, do add on additional brinjals and tofu as it helps with soaking up the flavour. Aromatic, rich in flavour, creamy are just some of the tasting elements in Lau Heong Seafood Restaurant's curry fish head. 

    Tips

    Definitely do try out their fried chicken.

    Things to expect

    Chinese 'dai-chao' dining and limited seating.
