Fish head curry is not the only way to enjoy this part of the fish that is truly for fish lovers.

I once ate steamed fish head at a zi char stall that used an ang ko li (red snapper) fish head.

You could say it was love at first taste. I was taken by the simplicity and clean flavours of the dish.

For many foodies here, the name Ka-Soh is synonymous with sliced fish beehoon soup and prawn paste chicken.

For me, it also brings back memories of sitting at a five foot way in Chin Chew Street waiting for dinner at Swee Kee Eating House, its original name, in the 1980s. The street does not exist anymore as the area has been redeveloped as China Square.

Ka-Soh, which is Cantonese for daughter-in-law, was what everyone called one of the serving staff. She would give you a tongue-lashing if you asked why your food was taking so long to come, so we were all in awe of her.


3. LISTEN: Singapore pop music
