It was alternating between raining cats and dogs, and light drizzle when we got into Kuala Lumpur today. We were just in time to join the lunch crowd at the famous Anuar Fish Head Curry stall at Lucky Garden in Bangsar. It's also known as Bangsar Fish Head Corner. (Pardon the rain drop on my camera lens 😂 )
Action at the serving station was frenetic with the long line of customers queueing for Anuar's fried chicken, squid, Cincaru fish and bean sprout.
The fish, chicken and squid are freshly fried at this forty year old stall.
After getting our food, we sat down with dozens of Anuar's customers. This place is always packed elbow to elbow during lunch time.
Then it started to pour. Luckily, we already collected our food by this time.
Our lunch - two plates of rice with fried chicken drumstick and squid came to RM13.
I asked for the soft starchy clumpy rice to be flooded with fish head curry ("banjir" as locals say in Malay here).
The fried chicken drumstick marinated with spices was fried to a deep reddish brown outside.
The fried chicken drumstick was mildly spicy and aromatic on the outside. Inside, the chicken was tender and juicy, and there was still some natural chicky sweetness. I can't recall better Indian Mamak style fried chicken than this.
I also had a fried squid (sotong) which was meaty, tender and naturally sweet with slight spice flavours.
4-Star (out of 5) Bangsar Fish Head Corner in KL is a nice place for lunch. Parking though is quite havoc during peak hours - so be prepared to wait or walk a little. The food is freshly cooked on the spot. Spice flavours are mild, so we can also appreciate the natural taste of the ingredients. The star is the fried chicken. Prices are competitive. (Needless to say, I need to come back for their famous curry fish head.)
