REALLY GOOD
1st WILD BOAR CURRY RICE
Restaurant Sing Kee Wong, Petaling Jaya
:: Lots of curry powder, spices and curry leaves makes this a really, really good wild boar dish to have with rice. Be warned, you’ll probably need a nap after this so cancel all appointments if you intend to have this for lunch.
2nd NASI DAGANG WITH GULAI RAJA BERANGKAT
Kesom Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Special brown rice steamed with herbs and coconut, served with acar, keropok, hardboiled egg and sambal belacan. This one also came with ikan tongkol (mackerel tuna if I'm not mistaken) that has been cooked in a coconut-y gravy. We found pieces of pineapple in the gravy as well, which added a slight tanginess to the dish. Very appetizing.
3rd NASI KERABU WITH GULAI AYAM KAWAH
Kesom Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Basmati rice steamed with Butterfly Pea Flower (Clitoria Ternatea) for the flavour and colour and served with acar (vegetable pickles), keropok (fish crackers), telur masin (salted egg), kerisik (toasted grated coconut), serunding ikan (fish floss), ulam (a mixture of raw local vegetables and herbs) and sambal belacan. I picked the ayam gulai kawah (chicken cooked in a gravy similar to curry) to go with this. One of my favourite places to eat.
4th BANANA LEAF RICE
Aunty Manju's Home Of Banana Leaf, Kuala Lumpur
Very decent BLR here. The tofu sambal that they serve with the meal is good! More often than not, restaurants usually only serve vegetables with their BLR sets. Props to Aunty Manju’s for offering that with the set instead of charging extra! Word of caution, this will likely put you into a food coma so try not to schedule anything important after your BLR meal, k? 😉
5th VEGETARIAN BANANA LEAF RICE
Restoran Devi's Corner, Petaling Jaya
Quite good BLR here. The mint chutney and pickles were especially enjoyable. Curry and dhal was good too. I do feel that BLR sometimes can be a hit or miss and much of it depends on the vegetables that are served for the day. Thankfully for us everything was a hit on the day we went.
PRETTY GOOD
6th NASI KERABU AYAM GORENG
Kesom Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Last few days to enjoy this before they close for good. The fried chicken was really good, as always. And I love how they are always generous with the raw local vegetables and condiments that go with this butterfly pea flower rice. They will be missed.
7th GARLIC RICE
Rakuzen @Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya
This was tasty enough but garlic rice is low on my list of things to order in a Japanese restaurant. This went well with the beef dish.
