Banana Leaf Rice @ Vishal's, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur



I realised I've been abandoning Indian food for a while with all the postings on Ramadan Bazaar. Not fantastic pictures this time round as I find I have so much trouble making it look nice when the food is all scattered all over the leaf. This place kinda appeals to me - not for their weird seating (see the review below for pictures) where they arrange their tables just like a seminar but more for their home cooked taste and the promise of no MSG in their food.

Must haves here I reckon is the fish items - they had teeny weeny Ikan Bulus that day when I dined here. Fantastic stuff as the smaller the fish is, you can crunch all the fine bones up when it's crispy. Ikan Bulus may look weird but it has a sweet fine flesh within.

Another favourite is their Curry Fish Cutlets - tender fish cutlets in a slightly tangy curry sauce. Great with lots of rice and vegetables. What's not great is their Deep Fried Mutton Chops - tough meat which will put your jaw through a work out that will exhaust it. Although this place is well hidden from the main road, it draws quite a few customers during lunchtime as it's near the temple. It's also open during breakfast time hence you can get the usual rotis, thosais and etc.
