Most Malaysians love Indian style curries and the best place to savour them is at many Banana Leaf restaurants that are scattered round KL and PJ (for city folks). I am a big fan too although I usually refrain myself from having second helping on the rice. LOL! I will cover the first one here for a start, and will post more when I visit more banana leaf rice outlets.
A very well know place for B.L.R. lovers around Petaling Jaya’s old town, this place need no introduction. I was a bit surprised at first because it looks more like a house than a restaurant but was glad to finally come to this place to sample their food as I was recommended by many friends to check this place out.
Here is the full spread! Top row: the three dishes mentioned earlier, a cup of home made yogurt, Crab Rasem (yes you heard that right; I’ve been told it’s the best crab rasem in town), and a glass of warm water. Then you have the standard three types of vegetables and a mango pickle. Rice, with lots of fish and chicken curry and some popadam. All in all, one of the best Banana Leaf Rice I have tasted. Best for: Sambal Prawns and Crab Rasem.
