When you tell somebody about a Hunan restaurant, always begin with the steamed fish head. Hunan Mao’s most famous dish is the spicy fish head. The fish head will be large, probably from an enormous carp or similar freshwater species, thus comical, and it will be frosted with the chopped blend of dried, fresh and fermented chiles that give Hunanese cooking its reputation for head-snapping heat. The head is surprisingly meaty.

Warning: Be careful with the small bones! But the bigger you ordered the lesser bones you will get!

There is a unique way how to eat this fish head, the waiter gave us plastic straw when she serves the dish on our table, and she told us that this straw we can use for sucking on the fish fats! Yummy!
