rif and I have been patronizing this fish head curry stall for many years. He started eating this when he was a kid and introduced me to this stall when we started dating. Prices haven’t changed much since then, and I hope it remains this way.
This is the only place I can go to when I’m dead broke, order a large plate of rice with a fried chicken thigh, beansprouts and fish curry gravy, and walk away just RM3 poorer. But if you order the fish head, be prepared to pay more.
Had a meeting is Bangsar so I popped by for lunch with a colleague. I was lucky I didn’t get curry stains on my off-white top. Since it was just us two, we shared a small fish head (RM25) and two fried squid (RM6 each) with white rice and beansprouts. The squid is awesome stuff. Juicy, chewy and well spiced from the curry powder marinade, it was insanely addictive.
We didn’t get the jenahak fish because the head was too big and that dish alone was RM50. #nomoney They claimed we got ikan kerapu, but it didn’t look or taste like kerapu. This fish was grainier and the flesh wasn’t as flavourful. Oh well, I guess I need to round up more makan kaki to attack the jenahak next round.
The experience of eating under the tree can be a challenge for some, especially if you’re not accustomed to the humid weather. There is no fan to keep you cool, so if you don’t want to sweat it out, I suggest you have your lunch to-go.
Or suck it up, eat your lunch al-fresco and walk into TMC’s ice cream section and enjoy your free air-con there. They do a pretty mean version of fried chicken, prepared in batches. Make sure you catch a fresh batch.

Verdict: I wouldn’t say this is the best fish head curry I’ve eaten, but the fried squid is good stuff!
