Finally, after missing this asam fish for three years, I got to taste it again at "Come and Eat" Teochew porridge shop at the old three storey flats in Stulang Laut, Johor Bahru.

I asked the shop owners what is the asam fish made of, and they showed me this fish which they called 刺客鱼 (literally assassin fish). It looked similar to milkfish.

The 刺客鱼 is cut into large chunks and stewed till soft in the large pot of salted vegetables, assam, garlic cloves, dried chili and spices.

The asam fish has the same texture as canned sardine with mushy soft meat and tender chewable bones. But, the flavour is completely different. This asam fish has mildly sourish spicy flavours with the sweet taste of fresh fish.

I like this asam fish a lot. I also like to mix the stewing sauce into the plain white porridge and it tastes wonderful.

(Note: This asam fish is available only on Thursdays. Check "Come and Eat" Facebook page on the availability of asam fish.)

Craving for "Come and Eat" asam fish satisfied, we indulged in the little shop's other popular dishes.

The "Come and Eat" simple steamed fresh fish. Different fish every day depending on the catch of the day.

We had a baby Ikan Kurau (Threadfin) which tasted just great as it was very fresh. The fish was steamed and served "as is" with no sauces or dressing, and it can't be better.

I like this braised pig skin which was soft rubbery in texture.

The "Come and Eat" boss is skillful in Teochew style braised meats. There's braised belly pork, skin and head parts like ears and snort.

  1. Hi Tony, I think the fish is not called "刺客鱼" but is "chi kak" in Hokkien - the "kak " is "壳" (shell) in Mandarin but I forgot what is "chi" liao:-)

    Perhaps someone with a better command of Mandarin can enlighten us.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
