Indian Fish Head Curry

I’m not sure about you, but I am a big fan of spice, strong flavoured and rich food which is why I love Indian cuisine. Just thinking about Briyani with Fish Curry and Dhal is already making me drool, so let’s dive into 10 Indian Fish Head Curry restaurants in Singapore.

1. The Banana Leaf Apolo

If you have never been to Banana Leaf Apolo, they actually serve food in fresh and clean banana leaf which has its roots from India. They serve a variety of North and South Indian dishes such as tandoori chicken and mutton masala with their signature dish being the Apolo Fish Head Curry.

My favourites from this restaurant would be the Fish Head Curry and Palak Paneer which goes very well with some Briyani rice. The fish is very tender and juicy while the Palak Paneer was really creamy and rich in flavour.
