Mention Jalan Tiga fish head, everyone in town would know it's referring to the famous cheung tzing fish head (steamed fish head with preserved soy bean and black bean sauce). However this original stall has since shifted to Jalan 5. Since they're so famous, another stall opened on the opposite side which is Chong Yen (Steam Fish) Food Stall. This time we dropped by Chong Yen to give it a try.
The fish head here are done 2 styles which are steamed with ginger and garlic or with the preserved beans sauce. I opted for the latter and I find the sauce is too salty but bear in mind that I'm used to a less salt diet since young. Capt'n Hook is not very fond of this as he's not into bony fish but he ate those flesh part that I dug out for him.
Then Capt'n Hook must order his Hakka Char Yuk (Hakka braised pork belly). Errmmm sad that this is not as great as my mom's nor Leong Meng Fatt Yong Tau Foo or Leong Ya. The original stall is way better too.
We did not order our greens as we were afraid we can't finish our food but they put a plate of blanched choy sum on our table. Since it's quite a small portion, we just ate them up. This is mediocre only.
The food overall here seems to have gone down a little down the drain as compared to the other time I've ate but that was some years back. I can't recall the exact amount I've paid but it's around RM34 for the food. I guess a visit to the original stall would be in the order soon!
Oh yeah if you're a fan of Chong Yen, do take note that they're shifting to Jalan 4 and will be operating from there 1st December 2010 onwards.
