Fish Head Briyani @ TTDI, Taman Tun Dr Ismail

Putting a head-turning spin on biryani, Fish Head Briyani's speciality is what its name promises - a fleshy, moist & market-fresh fish head is the buried treasure beneath the rice, taking up substantial space within the pot, in a total treat for fans of fish head (our serving cost RM43 nett). Note though that FHB's biryani recipe is relatively mild-tasting, unencumbered by the heavy spices & seasoning that some might crave of biryani. The rice can be enjoyed on its own, complemented by raita, acar & papadum, since the grains themselves carry no fishy flavour. But if you prefer the more typical variations, the restaurant also offers chicken, mutton, egg or vegetarian biryani (RM8-RM18).

  1. What an ingenious idea...putting fish head into briyani (instead of the usual fish head curry we're all accustomed to)! ^.^ Is this the first? Coz I've not come across it before! ;)

    1. Contact.ewew: ya, i've not seen fish head biryani elsewhere, but since i don't really roam around the biryani restaurants, i'm not sure if a few other places might already have done it. i was definitely intrigued, and it's good that the outlet's name openly announces its main attraction :)

  2. I would love to try that! Have had bryani with chicken, beef and lamb...never with fish.

  5. This sounds like a Nasi Bryani revolution using Fish head!
    Frankly, fish is my top favourite meat over chicken, ducks, goat, cows & pigs! LOL

    1. Twilight Man: ooo - i guess fish is quite versatile cos there are so many different kinds of fish, some quite distinctive in their own way :)
