    Ah Lye Curry Fish HeadNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Close to amazing is what we would rate the fish head curry at Ah Lye Curry Fish Head. Comparing to other Chinese-style versions of fish head curry, this one is definitely spicier. The gravy is thick and beautifully seasoned with spices that gives the dish a well-balanced aroma. Here at Ah Lye Curry Fish Head, they use large cuts of fish head that provides chewy skin, thicker fish lips and cheeks. Even though the portion of the dish are not super big including the aubergines, okras and tofu, but its delightful taste will make you forget the little flaws. And for some reason, this cuisine will remind you of the Nyonya-style curry.

    Tips

    Lots of parking spaces but at night it can be quite dark and dodgy, so bring along some company.

    Things to expect

    A modern Chinese restaurant in a suburban area.

    Fish head curry catered at F4 Fish Head Curry Restaurant is served in a big curved metal pot. The texture of the curry is not concentrated and the spiciness is milder compared to the usual ones. It tastes slightly sweet possibly due to the generous amount of coconut milk used in the gravy. Here comes the most important part of the dish – the fish. The fish head has a tender and smooth meat which proves that they are using fresh fishes. The pot is packed with long beans, lady fingers, tofu puffs, and cabbage. Cooked until soft, the veggies have completely absorbed the strong essences of the curry. Now you just need a plate of warm rice and indulge yourself with one of the recommended fish head curries in PJ.

    Tips

    Do come at night when the more experienced chefs are cooking.

    Things to expect

    Warehouse-like restaurant.

    What once started as a bare basics stall in Brickfields back in 1969, today is an imposing and elegant establishment at Oasis Ara Damansara. Embellished with exposed brick walls, buoyant colours and posh ornaments, the interior definitely sidesteps from other Indian restaurants out there. The menu comprises a medley of North and South Indian dishes, therefore be spoilt with choices but never leave without trying out their signature curry fish head. Generously portioned, the curry is loaded with eggplants, okras, long beans and a huge portion of fresh fish head. The balance of flavours are spot-on and the fish flakes off the bone with ease, definitely worth ordering extra rice to mop the bowl of spicy goodness clean. Also, a list of wines just notch the flavours a degree further. 

    Tips

    They do have set lunches too. Check out their Facebook page

    Frisson Coffee BarPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Garoupa and red snappers are usual suspects for curry fish head, but Frisson Coffee Bar has brought this dish a whole new level by introducing salmon into the scene. If you find that to be off the beaten track, there is more to come. How about devouring the fiery dish amidst a chic and hipster backdrop? Unlike other contenders in the list, this cafe certainly begs to differ, in a good way. Served piping hot, the salmon head is crammed in the bowl with assorted vegetables and paired with mounds of turmeric rice. The dish certainly tastes as good as it looks and the portion is pretty generous, meant to be shared between two to three persons. Another rule to live by is storing some space for desserts and wash down the heat with a glass of iced coffee.
