This restaurant is famous for the Assam fish heads dish, but its stir-fried homemade tofu, otak-otak, bean sprout with salted fish, kangkung belacan and spicy sambal squid dishes are fantastic as well.
Gan: Muar, a small town in Johor (southwestern state in Malaysia, right underneath, not too far away from Melaka) is quite famous among Malaccans as they have quite a lot of good chefs from there. A couple of the more famous dishes they make are the otak-otak and Assam fish head.
Gan: Don't think it's homemade. It's probably the japanese tofu that comes in tubes to maintain a certain shape consistency. It's well made though. :-)
Gan: You want heat? This is heat!
Gan: One of the more famous food in Malaysia. Otak is a Malay word for brain (hehe.. that's what they call this dish because it looks like one). It's basically a fish+shrimp curry paste along with various spices.
