Ah Lye Curry Fish Head @ SS 19, Subang Jaya

It was a Sunday night, a Mother's day night where I was out for a catch up session with Nai Shan and Mei Mei rather than my Mum as she was busy with an outing with her friends. Initially, we were clueless at that point of time on where to for dinner and kept wandering around for food.

Then, Nai Shan popped up with a suggestion to have asam fish. Mei Mei and I were alright with it, but again the question was where to? So, I asked Mr GPS device for some recommendation and it brought me to this stall, Ah Lye Curry Fish Head, located somewhere deep in the residential area of SS 19 Subang Jaya.

It was presumably crowded since it was the night of Mother's Day and we were lucky enough to get the last vacant table. It kept me wondered though is this place packed during the normal weekends?

One thing that I was really pleased with was the short waiting time for our food to be served. Looking at the crowd, we were surprised actually that the food came to us after barely 20 minutes of wait.
Stir Fried Lettuce with Spicy Bean Curd (RM 7)
Thought it consisted some hint of "wok hei", it was lacking the essential spicy bean curd flavour. It tasted more like a normal stir fried rather than spicy bean curd fried.

Sweet and Sour Pork (RM 10)
A good sweet and sour pork should have the pork deep fried long enough for the mild crisp on the outside before being drizzled with gravy. Unfortunately, this was the opposite and the pork were very soft. Also, the essential accompaniment of red and green peppers were missing.

And the stall's signature dish, the curry fish head.

It was very average and nothing really to shout about. In fact, I find the curry taste a little too tangy and could have been better with more sweetness lingering in. Good point was that it consisted very little cocunut milk, a plus point for those diet watchers.

The bill came to a total of RM 45.40 which inclusive of drinks and rice. A decent price for a dinner that consisted a claypot of curry fish head. They have other signature dishes to offer as well, namely the Assam Prawn and Bake Salted Chicken. Perhaps you could try them out should you visit them next time. It is very unlikely for me to return to this place just for a dinner though.

Stir Fried Lettuce with Spicy Bean Curd: 5/10
Sweet and Sour Pork: 4.5/10 (non-halal)
Ah Lye Curry Fish Head: 5/10

Atmosphere: 5/10

Price: 5/10
Verdict: A very average Curry Fish Head that has nothing really to shout about.
