Reviews

From the Burpple community

Established in 1983 by Mr Tay Cheng Siong, this chain blends economy rice and zi char styles, offering a sort of Modern Chinese Peranakan cuisine that commands a premium. And a philosophy of - 'If the food is good, they will come'.
.
The menu changes depending on what ingredients they get fresh from market, but there is typically a range of about 20 dishes or so.
.
The crunchy Stir-Fried Napa Cabbage is clean-tasting, with fresh vegetal sweet flavour. Their signature Oyster Sauce Squid has large bouncy pieces with herbal salty sweet flavour.
.
The signature Chicken Curry has tender potatoes and bone-in chicken chunks, with a pleasant savoury spicy flavour that has a good fiery kick, but fades quickly. The Soy Braised Egg has a springy texture with eggy salty sweet notes.

The best part about Ocean Curry is that they are primarily a cai png stall. You therefore get to pick from a myriad of dishes at the counter and at really affordable prices (as compared to a tzi char stall).

Our favourite dish was their salted egg prawns. Yes, they aren't served piping hot but the prawns were plump and juicy and the salted egg sauce simply divine. We would also recommend their sweet and sour pork too!

The 3 ladies in my life (Granny, the Mother and Miss K) are bonded in their love for one dish, curry fish head.

For their signature curry fish head, Ocean uses the more premium ang go sai fish (white snapper / sea bream) which is more tender and moist. Their curry gravy is also rather unique. You can taste the distinctive notes of the masala spice blend of Indian curry in a rich creamy coconut-based Nonya curry. We are not usually fans of Indian curry but this was more subtle than overpowering.

We have been checking out various options but when it comes to convenience, taste and value for money, Ocean Curry Fish Head is our hands down winner (thus far)!

Arrived at 5.30 in the evening and there was already a long queue but it moves pretty fast. Oceanus is a Cai Png stall that also serves piping hot curry fish head in a claypot. Service was fast. The fish head curry had a lot more flavours from spices compared with others that I have tried. Not over powering spicy hot. Still prefer the Assam Fish head curry type for the tangy taste.

This cai fan is great!!! I was very happy with the large selection of food offered and picked 2 vegetables and a pork dish covered in a yellow sauce which I initially thought was salted egg. Unfortunately, it turned out to be (nacho?) cheese sauce and that was very disappointing. That said, I still enjoyed my lunch very much because the vegetables were delicious and the curry gravy was very rich.

A pot of bubbling hot and spicy fish head curry was what we needed to make the best out of it. A good one to be exact.
