it was just 10.45am-ish. didn’t stop the long queue.

these people no need work. i guess 80% from singapore?

the queue was constant, i guess until sold out la….

fish head was small RM$22 medium RM$33 large RM$44.

we had 11pax. there was no large tables. even for 5 or 6pax we probably wait long time even when it reached our turn.

so we broke into 3 tables = 4, 4, 3.

& we ordered 2x small for each table, so total 6 orders of fish heads.

i supposed 2 small gave us more curries, veg & taupok than 1 large? they do top up the curries if you need.

this like a super efficient factory operation. they do several 100s claypot every day i think.

the fish head did not look super fresh. taste also, but they were fresh & not stale, sweet & firm enough just not super fresh.

this like a RM$22 (S$7) fish head shared by 2 including veg & taupok, so can’t expect everything la…

curry was like ready like huge pot. so just scoop curry & veg into the right size claypot, add the fish head, bring to the back to heat over stove for 5 to 6 mins, top with taupok, and voila! its on your table…

love the curry…really shiok delicious…yum yum…i basically drank the curry. finished the 2 pots on my table.

slightly less thick & intense as my own (maybe that’s how i should do it), quite similarto the fish head curry at hup choon.

tau pok, veg also very nice.

fish meat quality couldn’t really complain like i say. still sweet & firm.

not much meat though, so got to take sparingly, got to think of the next guy..next time will order fish head & fish tail.

only that next time don’t know whether want to come here & queue 1/2hr+ or not???

one friend’s bil lived in JB. he came to fetch us to bring 1/2 the group to ksl plaza. he doesn’t go to kam long, maybe most JB-ites don’t only singaporeans..he said there are so many good fish head curries & with aircon…

kam long was a great experience first time la…but of course we need not really eat a RM$22 fish head curry, just a very good fish head curry will do, and if got aircon & no queue better still wad!

factory production may not be poetry in motion….

super efficient system…the economic theory of specialisation in full display, just one menu = fish head…
