The Banana Leaf Apolo’s fish head curry, is a tangy spicy dish that will truly satisfy. I feel that I had to rectify that I had only tried this perhaps one or two times and since this place is so lauded by Anthony Bourdain I had to blog about it. So far I haven’t had better fish head curry. The sweet lassi is excellent too and a great complement to the spiciness of the curry. I’m so glad they didn’t reduce the spice level as I like my food really hot. Been having chilli since I was a toddler so I’m used to it.
The fish was really fresh but as with all fish dishes be careful not to swallow the bones. I’ve had many a bone down the throat incidents and it’s no fun. I guess it’s why I rarely have fish (not counting fish and chips of Filet O’ Fish of course)
I wouldn’t recommend the tea here. I’ve had better at places like Samy’s Curry.
To see the Singapore segment, fast forward 6 minutes into the video of A Cook’s Tour. Bourdain will make you so hungry the way he’s eating. So funny too, the banter with his cheeky host. Gosh I do love watching the original show.
