I remembered having my Nirwana banana leaf rice in a late night 4 years ago after my bf (now husband) came back home from his work in restaurant, and we went to there for supper, but I cannot recall how was the food.
And this is the crowd in the restaurant. there was a long queue from the entrance till the road, where the staff do booking and faster making pre-order as the customers are waiting for their tables. We ended up have a quick Japanese coffee at the cafe next to the mamak.
And here we go, nasi briyani, chicken thigh, crispy bitter gourd that is not bitter at all, and other vegetarian dishes. Hey, did you know that we can refill the vegetarian fillings? Crap, because I do not know. (=.=)
the normal banana leaf rice costs RM 8-9, chicken briyani rice RM 13
Oh ya, I always love Papadum, a thin, crisp disc-shaped food typically based on a seasoned dough usually made from peeled black gram flour, fried or cooked with dry heat.
My baby ate a bit of briyani rice, white rice, papadum, dahl and the bitter gourd! And yeah, 1-year-old baby eats whatever we eat, as long as it is not too oily, sweet, or salty.
My favourite milk tea, yeepee! just tell the staff less sweet please, if not I will get diabetes very soon!
And asides from the normal banana leaf rice, these are the other dishes that we order: dry curry mutton RM 8, fried squid RM 10, and fish sambal RM 15. the one I like the most is the curry mutton.
After that, we head over to Palazzo to indulge ourselves for some sweet desserts and coffee.
Hmm, and then as we drove around Bangsar area, only we realize that there's at least 10 banana leaf restaurant at the neighborhood area! Which is nice? Probably you have to look for honest reviews, and also to check on the crowd.
