At Chai Leng Park, you can find one shop (or better known as house) selling claypot chicken rice and curry fish head that will guarantee to keep you coming back for more.

This shop “Lekker Claypot Chicken Rice & Curry Fish Head” is at Jalan Gan Chai Leng, just few blocks away from Wai Sek Kai.

Lekker claypot chicken rice and curry fish head is well known among the residents and factory folks in Prai.

This shop serves one of the best curry fish head available in this area and the shop is always full of people waiting to indulge this mouth watering dish especially during lunch breaks.

The claypot chicken rice has generous portions of chickens, Chinese sausage, salty fish, onions and the rice is well mixed that you get even colored rice, unlike others which have spots of black and white colored rice.

The cook will only break the eggs on top of the claypot rice after it is cooked and before served to you, so you will get half cooked eggs.

The smell of curry fish head will leave you swallow your saliva the moment it is served. The hot curry fragrance and strong smell of fish head make you want to try it out badly…Be careful, it is extremely hot.

The taste of the curry is highly flavored and the gravy is quite creamy too. Together with the claypot chicken rice, they are the perfect match.

Even if you have finished the claypot rice, you can ask for white rice just to enjoy the curry. Also, you can just order fish meat instead of fish head too.

The taste of the curry fish head will leave you tantalizing for some time…and you will crave to come back for more.

    No, what I meant is they have curry paste that pre-pack for sale. About RM2.50 per pack.

    i have tried this curry fish head many times and one day I saw the boss carry a pail of marinated chicken in a recycled plastic paint pail. Wow...this kind of hawker using recycled paint pail...I then approached the boss and told him off that he should not be using recycled paint pail to keep his marinated chicken as the toxic paint could not be properly washed away. He than quickly moved away and changed it to an enamel pail. This type of hawker using such recycled paint pail to keep their foods, we should confront them and tell them off. They make money and yet does not want to invest just to buy normal plastic pail or pot...watch out next time and if this happen, tell these people off...

    Anonymous(9 June), I'm a fans for this stall, do you take picture when u saw that? you should prove it when u accuse somebody.
    or, it will be unfair to them.
    People may also think that you have your own interest.
