One of the more popular JB restaurants with a perpetual queue specializing in fish curry. Served piping hot in a claypot, the curry was complex with its mix of spices and rich seafood flavours. A good level of spice that was addictive without being too numbing or rich.

Served with crispy taupok that soaks up the curry, and various vegetables - cabbage, lady finger, long beans, and tomato. The sea bass head had dismal amount of meat, but what we could scrap off was fresh and tender, enhanced and not overpowered by the aromatic curry (just wished there was more!).

Have the curry with a bowl of rice and it’s so satisfying. Worth sweating it out in the non-air conditioned section of the restaurant (p.s lucky ones might get seated in the newer air-conditioned section).

For those who don’t want to make the journey/ queue in line, frozen curry packs of this famous gravy is being sold in Singapore 😂 .

If you are a fans of curry fish head that can't eat very spicy but love that fragrant of curry powder, do not miss this shop. They served only 1 dish, that is the curry fish head. Possibly due to they concentrate on 1 thing, and they made it real good. Fresh fish, abundant of beancurd, some vege and generous curry soup. A small portion is good to go for 2 small eater. Price: RM20 per small pot exclude tax, Food: 8/10
Oops, and there are a few other curry fish head shop at this area. Some has similar name, but I never tried the others. Just this for now, and it is the most crowded one for the 3 shop I pass through. They open until 4pm only and expect some queue.

We can't guarantee there won't be a line when you drop by for a meal at this restaurant, but we can say that wait is worth it. Pro tip: They are actually open from 8am, so come for brunch. Have their famed Curry Fish Head (from RM20), where an addictive broth brims with delicate flavours from spices. Burppler Mr. Digester gives a thumbs up for the soft and flaky fish. Pair this with a bowl of White Rice (from RM0.70) or two, and you're set for the day.
*Take a 2-min walk (235m) from City Square

After braving a 3.5 hours journey across the causeway, we were lucky that there's no queue ar Kam Long! Finally tried the fish head curry here. Its consistently creamy, generous amount of veg and beancurd skin!!! and the fish is tender. Would go for the fish tail next time as there'll be more meat.

Medium fish head - 40 ringgit.

It may sound crazy, but at 8am, there was alr a long queue outside Kam Long Curry Fish Head 🐟

Made with a variety of spices from Malay & Indian cuisine, the curry is super flavourful & addictive. The fish head is very tender too. Super love ❤

For those who frequent JB to eat, Restoran Kam Long Curry Fish Head is definitely one of the eateries you should have tried before or at least know about. Just a short 3 minutes walk from JB City Square, you couldn’t possibly miss the perpetually long queue right outside the stall during peak hours. Since they open for business at 8AM, having curry fish head for breakfast might actually be a good idea to avoid the queue 😂.

Perfect for those with a low spice tolerance, the curry gravy was addictive and can be slurped easily without a cloying feeling. A firm thumbs up 👍 to the soft & flaky flesh of the fish head that absorbed the curry flavours really well, and also the beancurd skin which soaked up the yummy gravy thoroughly 😋. #whatisdigestingJB
