25 years Kam Long serve one of the BEST Curry Fish Head in JB! 金龙加哩鱼头

25 years of business. It has now passes his business to second generation. But they are still doing very fine now.
What is so special for 'curry fish head' in this restaurant?
I believe that it is very well known among the food lover in JB and Singaporean that it is one of the BEST in town.
In this restaurant they only serve curry fish head with white rice.
They serve the dish with 2 types of fish.
1) 红鸡鱼 - Red snapper - you should opt for this fish if your want to eat it for its meat
2) 红斑鱼 - red spot grouper - this fish is more pricier compare to the 1st option, this fish meat is lesser but it taste more sweet.
So both option is easy for you to choose.

It's curry is made up of spices, lot types of curry spices which cooked to perfection. It is not as sweet as others type of curry fish gravy (those is cooked in using lots of coconut gravy). Thus you won't feel sick of the curry is you drink too much. For example this pot is finished by me and my wife.

They are now has a few outlets in town. They sell their gravy to them as a form of franchise. I was hoping that someday they will come out with packaging and sell it in the supermarket so that i can have it every week.
