Ocean Curry Fish Head

Every once in a while, I'll make the trek down to the Raffles Place area for lunch. This was one of those rare occasions when everyone could make it - guess it helped that we started planning this way in advance... impromptu lunches never quite work out with us, does it? :)

This place is apparently quite popular, and thank goodness *someone* got there early and reserved a huge table for the 8 of us (you're the best, Ennie!). Ordering of food was also left to the same person, her being the mother hen of the group...

The star of the meal - the Curry Fish Head :


I seldom get to eat Curry Fish Head so was quite pleased when I found out we were eating this... it was the Chinese-style fish head, that tends to be less spicy and more sour than its Indian counterpart. No complaints about this - tasty and lots of meat. What I also love about curry fish head is eating all the other stuff in the curry - namely pineapple, brinjal, ladies' finger etc.

With that many people, just one Curry Fish Head is definitely not enough.



Some of the other dishes we had were Sweet and Sour Pork...








and Chilli Prawns...







For the vegetarian in the house, and to ensure that we omnivores have a balanced diet, we also ordered Tofu...








Chai Por Omelette...








and Heng Cai (sweet potato leaves).




As usual, I was berated for eating too little... I will remind all present that I was one of the last ones to finish eating (and it was because of my endless picking of the practically bare fish head) AND a few of us (me included) even proceeded to have dessert after lunch. So THERE! :P

P.S. Thanks for the photos, Joni!
