Fish Head Curry
The colleagues said that Ocean Curry Fish Head at Telok Ayer Street is good, and trotted off to tapau a portion for our lunch. Peak lunch hour in the Central Business District mean long queues, even if one heads out at 11.30am, simply because everyone else has the same idea. It took a while before the colleagues came back with a giant tub, and plenty of side dishes.
Never tried it before. The curry was oddly, not spicy. Surprisingly mild. The fish was fresh and that was sufficient. Made for a filling lunch. Ate more steamed rice than necessary. Curry and rice just go well together. The up-side about having so many dishes and humans at a table, I could pick what I want, and leave the rest untouched without having to justify dietary preferences. Nobody would notice!
Towards the end of the meal, I scooped around the tub, asked if anyone wanted more fish. They shook their heads. Wriggled my toes in absolute delight. The gelatin around both eyes was intact. Nobody wanted them. SO...ALL MINE. YUMMY.
