Curry Fish Head

$22.00 · 5 Reviews

Signature curry fish head ($15, originally $22), fresh fish head in a rich pot of curry that wasn't spicy even by my standards. Food here was pretty decent but thought portion was a little small. Hot pot beancurd, salted egg sotong, fried rice and we learnt that Hong Kong horfun= lotsa gravy. (Missing here: prawn paste chicken, lightly battered but very fragrant!)

Located in HillV2, this modern zi char eatery churns out homely, wok-hei ladened dishes that you can enjoy in the comforts of a fully air-conditioned space. Jiak, which means 'to eat' in dialect, can accommodate large groups and prices are affordable, making it the perfect spot for a weekend family gathering. Get the signature Curry Fish Head ($22) that is great for sharing among four — fresh fish head bubbling in a lusciously rich curry sauce made for ladling over white rice. Originally priced at $22, it goes for $15 if you order any dish (other than rice) on the menu — truly value for money indeed! Complete your meal with mainstay zi char dishes like Hotplate Beancurd (from $10), Salted Egg Prawns (from $18) and Claypot Golden Chicken (from $10). The sweet and spicy Mee Goreng (from $5) served in a claypot is great to fill your tummy, perfect for a solo meal if you're in the area!

Curry Fish Head ($15)

This claypot of curry fish head had us crowding round it like a bunch of school kids getting excited over the recess bell! Curry was still bubbling when served! Thick, lemak golden curry gravy coated every mouthful of my rice! I made sure of that! Meat from the fish head was definitely fresh and claypot was also filled generously with the usual suspects ie. brinjal, taupok, long beans, cabbage and ladies fingers!

@jiakmoderntzechar is currently having their signature fish head curry on promo at $15 if you order any other mains on their menu (U.P. $22) so grab the chance now!


Tried the $15 fish head curry promo (with any dish purchase). The fish head was substantial and the curry was rich and smooth, and not too oily. It's also not too salty which I liked. Chock full of other ingredients like tau pok, eggplant and ladies fingers, this was really value for money. Their business was booming on a Sunday night and the manager/owner managed it really well. Also tried the speciality chicken dish ($10) and was loved it as well! Definitely a nice place for comfy tze char in aircon for those hot days.


Prices are surprisingly similar to a Kopitiam Tze char. They are having a promo for fish head curry at $15 (usual price: $22). Decent Tzechar fare in a comfortable setting at very reasonable prices!
