 Located at the far end inside some low cost housing flat, this corner restaurant boasts of good fish head which may seem ironic given its location. Or perhaps its location is precisely how they managed to keep the prices on the relative low side.

 Home made steamed bean curd topped with fried shallots RM 10
It's like  a cross breed of soft silky tofu and Japanese egg tofu. Slightly firmer than the latter but less eggy taste, the kids would probably enjoy this much. The fried shallots give it a nice crunch and saltiness to an otherwise bland dish.

 Fish head curry RM 42
I think this only comes in one standard size and for 2 pax (without rice), it was a rather substantial portion. They were generous with the vegetables e.g. long bean, egg plant and ladies finger. The fish itself was not just all bones; it had enough flesh to enjoy with the creamy and thick curry. Definitely not your watery mamak curry fish head variety.

This is a no-frills dining and it can get rather hot even at night. So be sure to wear something light and be prepared to sweat it out.
