Restoran Kepala Ikan Segar @ USJ 4, Subang Jaya

>> Sep 1, 2010

If you're looking for a relatively cheap meal around USJ, you should check out Restoran Kepala Ikan Segar. The dishes here range from RM10-RM30. The owner idea was to serve up tasty food at a cheap price.

German-style Fried Pork Knuckles

The knuckles are coated in a thin batter and deep fried until crispy. Accompanied with that slight sour yet sweet sauce, this dish is really a delight. I will order this dish every time I frequent this place.

Hot Plate Tofu

This place really does a very good hot plate tofu. I would go as far as to say that the tofu here is even better than the hot plate tofu at other bigger restaurants like Overseas Restaurant. The tofu is nice and soft, and comes served on a hot plate coated with egg.

Steamed egg with century egg and salted egg

The combination of of the saltiness from the salted egg white with the nice different texture of the century egg, the harder salted egg yolk and the softer steamed egg really made it a good dish.

Steamed Fishhead with Garlic

The big head carp head was alright. I don't really fancy eating fresh water fish as they are easier to culture and I have no idea what the fish farmers feed them. This fish was reasonable.

4 types of Vegetables cooked in Sambal

This is one of my favourite vegetable dish around. The vegetables here were crunchy and tasty.

Bitter Gourd with Salted Egg Yolk

I am not a big fan of bitter gourd. I don't mind eating it but I wouldn't say its enjoyable. For me, this dish didn't work. The bitter gourd didn't go well with the egg yolk.

All in all, this is a friendly neighbourhood restaurant that serves up cheap and tasty food. The food may not be that healthy but an occasion indulgence is alright I guess.

Pricing: About RM20 per person

Ah, I remember seeing this place and wondering that it has survived throughout time. Think this is a branch as I remember seeing a similar one in Paramount. Looks like good old Chinese comfort food.

@boo_licious: nice seeing you here.. I don't think it is a branch though.. Apparently this owner took over from the previous owner in 2007 but he retained the chef.. The owner is actually an engineer.. He's the dude sitting at the cashier..

@Joe: ahaha, sorry man, I'm not a bit fan of bittergourd.. Its one of those things that I would eat for the nutrients rather than for the taste..
