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! ;)
