Ah Lye Curry Fish Head, Subang Jaya

>> Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Hello dear readers!

Sorry for slacking in updating of this blog...been quite caught up with the load of work at office that by the time I get back, I just don't want to do anything constructive! I can't wait to have my end-year break...hohoho...counting down the days! :D


Venue: Ah Lye Curry Fish Head, SS19 Subang Jaya
Occasion: Dinner with friends
Overall comment: The fish head/meat curry is pretty good :) According to JC, it's the best that he has ever tasted in Klang Valley. I kinda enjoyed the fried squid too, but JC's wife said that that night's fried squid wasn't as good as before...hopefully it's a one-off dip in quality only...
Halal: No

I've heard much about this curry fish head restaurant. Even some friends from as far as Sitiawan knows about Ah Lye & recommends this restaurant for some good dose of curry fish head. News of good food sure travels a LONG way! :) Ah Lye was even featured in The Star newspaper 3 years back! (that's when I sorta just started my gastronomic adventures)

Ah Lye is tucked in the quiet residential area of SS19 Subang Jaya. The restaurant is packed during peak hours, & especially during the weekends. When it comes to fish head curry, most fish head curry fans would just know their way to this place :)

JC ordered the fish meat curry instead as he finds the fish head a little too troublesome to eat (with all the bones). The curry was thick, fragrant, & not-too-spicy for the PerutBesi *lip-smacking!* I can just have the fish head curry with rice alone! You'll find generous amount of fish head/meat pieces, accompanied by okras/lady's fingers, aubergines/brinjals, & bean curd puffs/"taufu pok"...oh, lovely :)

Deep-Fried Squid
The presentation, especially the colour of the fried squid wasn't really appealing. I didn't have much faith in the squid 'til I took a bite *crunch!* Ah! It was good!! I loved it & could finish up at least half the plate (too much will give me a sore throat) by myself.

Salted-Baked Chicken
This chicken was of no comparison to the one I bought from Ipoh...it wasn't fragrant enough & the flavour of salted-baked chicken was just absent. Quite disappointing :( JC said it used to be quite good, but I guess some things just isn't the same today as it was yesterday...

Stir-fried Kailan with Garlic
It's a simple stir-fried kailan, so I don't really have much complaints.

This meal was a treat from JC, so I don't know how much the meal costs. But I reckon it isn't too expensive. If it is unreasonably priced, no one would bother weaving through the housing area just to satisfy their cravings for fish head curry! :D

Let me know what you think about this curry fish head restaurant. If you've better recommendations, drop me a note! :) Stay tuned with PerutBesi! ;)

The fish head curry was average, which came without a fish head.
The chicken we ordered was below average, mixed vegetables average. Plum juice below average.
Tamarind prawns were nice.
But what shocked us was the cook rolling tofu sheets was swatting flies with the same hand on the same table, with no attempt to clean the squashed flies off.
The food at best was below average....and hygiene is highly suspect.
Our first and last meal here.
