Kam Long Curry Fish Head

Kam Long Curry Fish Head is an old-school kopitiam eatery located at Jalan Wong Ah Fook, just a few blocks away from Johor Bahru City Square. It has been in business for over 30 years serving only one thing – their famous curry fish head.

After you’ve placed an order, a fish head is placed in a claypot filled with beancurd skin, lady’s finger, tomatoes and cabbage. Their signature curry is then poured into the claypot and then cooked over a fire.
