Pa Ka Seng seafood restaurant, Setapak. We actually wanted to eat at Peter's fish head curry but for unknown reason, it was closed on that day.
Fish head curry. RM36 for this medium size pot. Lots of vegetables and fish head pieces and meat inside.
You can probably tell from the look of it that this is the "lemak" type. I think there is no curry powder used. All made from scratch. Love the "lemak" and fragrant curry gravy! I think I have a new fave after Ah Lye in SS19! In fact, i think I like this one better but they are quite different and I don't mind either one!
The fish meat was really tender which made me think it wasn't grouper fish. But when we checked with the restaurant, we found out that small sized grouper was used. No wonder!
Green Dragon vegetable. RM16. The look and texture resemble that of Chinese chives (gao choy / kuchai) a lot, but the taste was quite different. Really yummy but not cheap!
Edit: 2nd visit.
Again, we ordered fish head curry. RM36
The gravy was totally different this time around. Not lemak anymore but a strong taste of curry powder instead.
Stir fried "shu miao". RM12
Por Lor Kuat (sweet and sour pork with pineapple). RM15
Green dragon vegetable again (RM15) because we loved it the first time around. But see what the chef added to the dish. Bean sprouts? The rawness of the sprout really ruin the exquisite taste of the green dragon vegetable and left a bad taste in our mouth.
Two visits, and completely different experience! Totally no consistency and quality control at all!
