Malabar Palace, The Best Taste of Indian Cuisine

  When people heard of Indian food, first thing they will think will be: oh my god, super spicy hot curry! Well, time to change your mind and concept though. I was part of the thoughts because we always end up at Mamak, mostly known as authentic Malaysian Tamil Muslim cuisine, where the food is pork free or halal. Mamak the word was also created at Malaysia, amazing? Mamak was well known at Kuala Lumpur, because it operates 24 hours daily, and yet the food is cheap, you can eat a pita or bread and drink a glass of caffeine drink using three ringgit Malaysia I would say, but of course, we ourselves already know, the food was mostly unhealthy and fattening.

Then, not long ago, few years back, we have new creation of authentic south Indian food, where the marketing plan will be – to serve the Indian food on banana leaves. It runs business similar to Mamak, but if you noticed carefully, most of the Indian restaurant do not runs 24 hours like mamak does. If compared with the spices, I would say southern Indian food is not too bad though.

So, now here goes the third category, where I believe, more and more people want to change the thought and mindset of Malaysian towards Indian food. Some people who understand the aroma and the real food ingredients with recipes from Indian start to come in and explore the Malaysia market. After understanding the taste bits of the Malaysian, they combine the cuisine from India and Malaysia, and guess what? You will be shocked in how remarkable the taste will be.

Spicy? Not really. Fattening? No. Unhealthy? Not at all when you know more about the food.

  So what is it? Everyone curious to know. Come over to this very young chef, Chef Shinith’s restaurant –Malabar Palace. What makes it is like a palace? Mostly you feel like eating like a king or a queen. Even some VIP came over to check out the palace, so would you give yourself a chance to experience the good food around?
