Best curry fish head in Ipoh - Up & Up Restaurant, Wisma Kinta

Add: Wisma Kinta, Jalan Yang Kalsom - Ipoh, Perak
Tel: +605 255 6478

One evening, we decided to do a 24-hour road trip to Ipoh ... :-) This time, unlike the past, it was a quality and focussed makan trip rather then my usual quantity makan trip! J's folks took us to Wisma Kinta, home of Ipoh's oldest elevator (which was not running), where we took the lift up to Up & Up Restaurant. What looked like a rather humble air-conditioned eatery, housed the BEST fish head curry I have had in some time.

Mind you, this place has been operating for over 30 years, ask those with Ipoh-roots, they know!

Divine!! Tangy, hot, firm to bite ... marvellous!

Sambal prawns were spicy and yummy ... and I was genuinely impressed how good the pickled pig trotters were!

Vegetables were fresh and crunchy ... and I am so glad Aunty Y ordered the Foo Yong Egg too, excellent.

The verdict ... a brilliant meal, and wonderful company simply made this even more amazing. We will be back, Ipoh isn't just 'hawker food haven', there are excellent restaurants too!!
