Assam Fish

$3.50 ยท 2 Reviews

This curry rice stall takes the route of a lighter curry gravy, which isn't always preferred when it comes to the indulgent Hainanese stalwart. But as Tastemaker Ice Blossom discovered, the dish that draws the crowd is actually the Assam Fish ($3.50 with curry rice), mackerel fillet in zesty assam gravy. She deems the sizeable slab they serve to be "fresh and sweet, with a great firm succulent texture.", so it's no wonder this is one of their top sellers. To keep it from getting muddled up with curry sauce, the fish is typically served in a separate dish.
Avg Price: $5 per person

I joined the snakey queue at Kheng Nam Lee Curry Rice (#01-53) which obviously sells curry rice. BUT there's a twist. This stall is famous for its Assam Fish. You will see every single customer ordering at least one big slab of this. They usually place the assam fish with the gravy separately for you to enjoy. The fish is super fresh and sweet with a great firm succulent texture. ๐Ÿ‘ #BurppleSeahImFoodCentre
