The usual fishead curry is either cooked in coconut milk or 'asam'. The one found in Orkid Tropika has a slight twist to this favourite Malaysian dish, the gravy is a mixture of coconut milk and MILK. Why milk? It is healtier and also reduces the rich feeling/taste of too much coconut milk. A chat with the proprietor, we found out that the brand of milk used was also critical in this dish of his.

The Fish Head is HUGE, only half a head in the photo, can easily satify 2 to 3 persons...!!! When we ask, the owners said that was the normal size they serve. The fish head is not only big but meaty too. Lots of fish meat and Omega 3. Not only that, the food there is very economical, fishhead, deep fried sotong and vegetable only cost us RM 40 to RM50. Damn cheap!!! But it has been a year since I last went there. Should go there again!
