A sneaky dinner at Fish Head on Morphett Street which occupies what used to be British India. The drawcard was the Indo-Malay food offerings, namely satays and kang kong. The satays aren’t worth raving about; there wasn’t much meat on the skewer and the meat veered on the overcooked and dry side of the scale. We went ‘baller’ and ordered the lobster tail which was flavourful and the meat juicy and firm… and what’s a dinner at Fish Head without an actual fish head! We happily mopped up them sauces and sambal with a basket of garlic naan. Mmmm… sambal.
