Ocean Curry Fish Head

Had lunch with a few of my colleagues at the outlet of Ocean Curry Fish Head along Telok Ayer Street. They have this other outlet along Toa Payoh which packs in the crowds every day.

Fish Head Curry

This was undoubtedly the star attraction which drew us there. Although I don't really take take curry, I couldn't help but appreciate the freshness and sweetness of the fish meat as well as the slightly sourish and appetizing taste of the curry. However, at $26 a pot, its a little pricey.

Stir Fried French Bean

I fancied this dish quite a bit. The beans were fried with dried shrimps and pepper, which gave it a nice slightly salty taste with a tinge of pepper. The beans weren't overcooked or undercooked as well. A great dish!

Sweet and Sour Porkchop

This was normal, but what I liked about it was that unlike normal sweet and sour pork, this cut was different and had little fats in it, making for a healthier eat.

Braised Tofu

Sliced Pork

The Braised Tofu was very normal, to the point that it became forgettable. The Sliced Pork, on the other hand, fared slightly better as the meat was slightly chewy due to the presence of bits of fats and thinly sliced, allowing the flavours to soak in.

Lunch for 6 pax cost $62, inclusive of drinks and rice. A little steep if you ask me, but the food is decent, so you might want to give it a shot.

Rating: 6.5/10 (7.5/10 for the curry fish head and French bean)

They have moved to Blk 92 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, #01-264 Singapore.

Today, I just went to Lor 8, didn't notice that they have moved away.

I ordered a curry fish head for $18.50. Their curry fish head SUCKS. Never go lor 8 for curry fish head again in my life.

Still this Ocean curry fish head is the best..!!!!!

Was surprised that there old location at Lorong wasn't crowded at all. I was told that my favourite Ocean curry fishhead has moved to Lorong 4. The new curry fish head at the Lorong 8 is just not worth ordering. So please go to Lorong 4
