During my trip to Taiwan, I met a lovely pair of couple, Nono and Jennifer that I find out they loves food too which is good, then only towards end of the trip realize that his mom actually sell Curry Fish Head nearby my house at Penang, happens to be I was at Penang for a day and drop by at the coffee shop Restaurant Satu Dua Lapan Lapan which is situated at Paya Terubong nearby Permata Sports Complex. Besides the Curry Fish head, there are many other food which is available at the coffeeshop that worth to try and do not put high expecation.
By the name of the stall itself ‘Curry Fish Head’ is a must order which is their signature. According to Nono, the fish were bought daily and choose by his mom to bring back therefore, freshness is ensure.
When the curry fish head is served, I just cant wait to taste it, with the look itself already temp most of us, flaming red color curry, fresh big fish head cook along with it. I love the curry taste, a bit spicy, sour at the end of the tongue and a bit thick in curry with the fish head steam perfectly and cook along, just as I prefer it to be. Definitely this is recommended!
Besides the main dish, his mom is equip with some excellent Nyonya cooking skills too, that cook some side dishes for the day differently to go along with the curry fish head, what we have today, you might not get it the same menu tomorrow, might be repeating the following week or other combination as that is not her main focus.
A simple ‘Fried Vegetable’ that been cook to aromatic and preserving freshness of the vegetable. I finish half of the plate.
‘Fried Chicken’ fried to crisps on the edge and soft on the inside. Dip it with chili sauce is good.
‘Tau Yew Bak (hokkien)- Braised Pork in Soy Sauce’ consider one of the best dish you would not want to miss if you find the right stall. Pork leg and meat had been steam quite some time and I just prefer it to be longer a bit so the skin and meat is softer, after all, curry mix with tau yew, and taste good!
If you have strong taste bud, then you would not want to miss this, ‘Asam Prawn’ fried in a hot wok, with a few asam cook along that makes it very a bit strong in taste but after you peel off the skin of it and eat along with rice, its flavorful~ Recommended
With a stall like that, to cook a nice food is something that I look forward and it was a great dinner organize by Nono and with total damage of RM47 for 4 pax, its definitely a great value. Definitely I will be going back for more especially the curry fish head and only at that time I realize that KL have not much nice Curry fish head compare to Penang.
