Fish head curry
A Singaporean dish, fish head curry is a fusion of Indian and Chinese ethnic cuisines. The head of a red snapper is simmered in a curry with an assortment of vegetables such as okra, eggplants, snake beans, cabbage, etc.
Restaurants generally serve the entire fish head in a pot or on a plate which some people might find freaky!

Something to serve up on Halloween?!

MALAYSIAN STREET FOOD

Sotong Bakar (Grilled squid)
The dried squids are first toasted over a charcoal stove and then stretched into long strips in a roller that  somewhat resembles a pasta machine. The stretching tenderizes the meat.
 
Smoky, crispy and tender 🦑  Absolutely delish!

  2. A different meaning for crossing the rainbow bridge ;)

    The fish head staring up... I think that would freak me out.

  5. I usually love your food photos and want to taste all dishes. But this time I'll pass on that one :)

  6. Dearest Veronica,
    Oh, would love to taste a piece of the thinned and crispy squid. What an idea to do it that way!
    One often wonders who was the first person for inventing that treatment...
    That Malaysian Rainbow Bridge is amazing—one that exists for real, not just the saying of e.g. pets that went over the Rainbow Bridge when they pass on.
    No, fish head is not my favorite. Our friend who traveled along with us to Jakarta when we both went to work, ate the fish head at a Chinese restaurant in Jakarta where we all ate with our boss and his wife. It was considered an honor to do so... Well, he's been stationed in Vietnam too as a Colonel so he knows a lot about Asian foods.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  7. That rainbow tunnel is a superb piece of art. Love the patterns there

  8. I love the rainbow tunnel! The red flower is so pretty too - it looks like coral!

    I don't like seafood so I wouldn't have that curry - the fish head does look a bit scary too, haha!

    Hope you are having a wonderful day :)

  10. Foto yang sangat indah Kak Veronica....head fish begitu menarik perhatianku...kepala ikan bersantan adalah yang paling nikmat untuk hidangan...dan karinya memiliki kuah kental yang sangat cantik

    aku juga menyukai foto foto bunga merah itu. Di tempatku sering kusebut itu sebagai jambul flower..

  27. Hello, and good morning from a very wet Portugal. It is a pleasure to see your photos. The food looks delicious. I wondered what the triangular hanging food was. I would definitely try the Squid, because I have never eaten it this way, and I would love the fish curry. Hake head is considered a delicacy here in Portugal, and some say the tastiest part of the fish, so the Red Snapper will be also very tasty. The red flower is beautiful, and the Rainbow Bridge is spectacular. Gives one a happy feeling just looking at it.
    All the best.

    Buena semana.

  40. That rainbow bridge is so pretty! I love seeing and learning about all the different foods that you eat since they are so vastly different from those we get here in New England.

  41. I have to admit I couldn't get the fish soup past my brain although I admit it may be delicious. It's just a little too real for me!
    But that rainbow bridge is astonishingly beautiful. I could spend a good deal of time there just relishing the colors.

  43. That rainbow bridge was amazing, Veronica Lee, but speaking for myself, the Fish head curry would not be for me and that fish head would be perfect at Halloween.
