Delicious Curry Fish Head at Soon Heng!

I was at the airport the other day to receive some guests from Japan on behalf of my company. Since it was near dinner time, I asked them what they would like to have and to my surprise.....they suggested that they would like to have curry fishhead at Soon Heng Restaurant at 39 Kinta Road! It seemed that they have heard so much about  the famous curry fishhead from their peers that  they must have when they come to Singapore. So off we go to try out the curry fishhead.........at Soon Heng Restaurant.....

When we reached there, we were greeted by their friendly staffs who ushered us to our table. I placed the order for a curry fishhead for five. There were so many dish offered that in the end I ordered some assam black ink squids, lemak curry chicken, ikan billis, kang kong for my guests. Before long.....I was very happy that my guests were happily tucking in the delicious food and they were full of praise for the food. The food was excellent and the service provided by the staffs were fast and with their ever smiling face!

For those who have not visited Soon Heng Restaurant... I truly recommend that you do ...cos I did... with my job accomplised for making my guests very happy on their very first night in Singapore with delicious curry fish head from Soon Heng!

Just finished lunch at Soon Heng and I'm still sitting here as I write this. Food arrived fast enough since all are precooked. The fish head curry was like a normal Indian assam curry but more diluted. It was so watery and there were fish scales in it which wasn't pleasant. It was a mix between Indian and Chinese curry and it didn't turn out well in this case. The best I liked was the squid in black ink sauce. It had flavour but the squid didn't have that springy bite. The achar and papadum came as sides and didn't know we had to pay. Anyway I heard the standard dropped; the place was not packed during lunch time. I didn't like it and I won't be returning.

Ate: Large Fish Head Curry, Cabbage, Squid in Black Ink

I suppose I'm not really in any position to comment on this place because I have long ago lost all capacity for objectivity. My family has been coming here for three generations (and that's how many generations have been in Singapore, so that counts for something). The one thing I would say is that this is one place that all taxi drivers know, and if there's any group of people who have amassed the greatest amount of knowledge about good eats, it's the taxi drivers. About the food - the curry fish head is the standard, and it's good, but it's not the main draw of this place. What you need to come here for is the curry chicken wings and the assam sotong in squid ink. The latter is absolutely phenomenal. It's so black, that it looks green - which may not make any sense in print but makes perfect sense when you actually see and eat it. Very few of the other dishes are stellar; they're mostly passable, except for the deep fried fish in sambal, which was actively disappointing.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
