Ah Wang Steamed Fish Head @ Old Klang Road

This time promoting the all time favourite steamed fish head for me and my wife at Old Klang Road. Ah Wang Bak Kut Teh & Steamed Fish Head is located just along the Old Klang Road beside the New Pantai Expressway Flyover. Although the shop signboard indicate both Bak Kut Teh & Steamed Fish, you can forget about ordering the Bak Kut Teh. It's not good at all, unless you suddenly fancy some Bak Kut Teh in the middle of the night, or else stay away.

I normally do late dinner here and there is no single time that I come without at least 80% of the tables occupied, imagine that. Yes, it's that famous. Yes, the food is good. They shop only open after 6pm and I heard my friend said it close at 4am. Not sure how true, never bother to verify =P I love this place because it's near my house. When we are hungry, we just drive off, take a seat and order our regular without thinking. The food is served in less than 10 minutes, finished it within 15 minutes, and off we go. A quick, healthy and relatively cheap dinner.

The photo is taken when we have finished our dinner, and just look at the crowd. It's almost 10pm.

As you can see from the photos, this place is actually street side set-up so don't expect good hygiene. It's clean enough for a pleasant dinner though, and of course, it's not air conditioned. The only thing that we love is the Garlic Steamed Fish Head, other than other recipe of Asam Style and Chinese Bean Sauce Style.

Highlight of the day, and I think we eat this once every month (I only spent 5~6 days a month in KL only). No matter what style of recipe you are ordering, the smallest serving is RM21 as the photo. It's enough for 2 person, but don't order any other thing, unless you are really hungry. Opt for different recipe if you have more people, it's not bad, just that I prefer the garlic style.

The fish is very fresh without muddy taste. The fish flesh is smooth without much bones, and if you fancy fish belly, this place promise you the most saliva dripping experience, ok, a little exaggerated, but it's that good. Important advice, eat when it's still hot. Once it turns cold, it's not that nice anymore, personal preference maybe. Must try.

A must have of special mixture of supplement sauce. Here is how you do it. Throw in little Chili Padi (just enough to give you the spicy taste) then cover up with plenty of garlic. Circularly squeeze the black thick soy sauce till all garlic is covered and final touch it with light soy sauce and stir slightly. We love it this way =)

We complete the dinner with a plate of cabbage with oyster sauce and it's only RM5. The vegetables is very fresh and crispy. No complain.

It's advisable to order the Yau Char Kway and they will serve it with the Bak Kut Teh soup, eventhough you don't order the Bak Kut Teh. The Bak Kut Teh soup is little mild to my liking, prefer the Klang strong herbal type. But a nice addition to your taste bud to the already superb steamed fish head. Anyway, it's only RM1.00, so your choice.

Normally our dinner with arrangement above set us back RM29.00, and I think it worth every cent. It's cheap for such a good quality fish head and the service is very fast. We never spend longer than 10~15 minutes for the food, and even with such fast turn-around, the shop is still pack! Crazy.
