My brother and I had our first dine-in together at Kadei by Manchula. Yay ! How I long for banana leaf rice!
When we got there we were quite pleased that not many tables were taken.
My order but no banana leaf hah..hah...
But it's all right. Understandably at a time like this, the restaurant did not stock up on banana leaves.
The Mutton Varuval was good but not as good as I remembered it. The fish curry gravy that accompanied my meal was very tart, but in a good way.
My brother's order was thosai.
That was a good meal, my tummy was very satisfied!
Spicy beef pho? Never had that. I sure would love to try even though I prefer clear soup.ReplyDelete
Never mind no banana leaf, here no leaf, no nothing!!! I asked and they thought I wanted my order served in a plate lapis with banana leaf, so stupid!!! Kuching, they have a few nice places, not here - not even one. So angry!!!
I didn't miss the banana leaf and if given a choice I would prefer the plate. Well, I do hope that in time to come there will be a banana leaf restaurant in Sibu!Delete
There are benefits, eating food served on a banana leaf!Delete
Me too! I miss banana leaf rice.ReplyDelete
The flower was pretty. Some kind of lily I think.
I think it is some sort of succulent plant like a cactus.Delete
Ah, banana leaf rice. You didn't banjir your rice with all the curry gravy of different types? Wah, the spicy pho sure looks spicy 🔥🥵 so I cannot eat it.ReplyDelete
I only asked for one type of curry gravy.Delete
Maybe it's not a case of not having stock of banana leaves...but a case of hygiene in times like these as people has become more concerned about cleanliness and food handling. I believe the curries were also served to you separately as opposed to leaving those 3 or 4-in-1 containers containing curry on your table for you to self tambah. P/S: I like the plant too...very pretty It has this icy frost look on it...like an ice plant...lol! Is that some kind of cactus plant? ;)ReplyDelete
Yup, the curries were served separately. Nowadays, restaurants don't leave sauces like ketchup on the table anymore for hygiene reasons and I hope it stays that way. Imagine the number of hands touching the bottle. I never thought of it that way before the pandemic!Delete
I also think that plant is a cactus.
Sedap giler....i will flood the rice with lotsa curries!ReplyDelete
Banjir the rice hah..hah..Delete
For the first time I saw bitter gourd was cooked this style in a BLR restaurant, usually wis fried version.ReplyDelete
What a pretty succulent plant!
Wow, that spicy pho, I would like to try by just looking at its appealing appearance. From Starling Mall food court?
Yes, the spicy pho is from Starling Mall foodcourt.Delete
I used to love being served the curry rice on banana leaves. It's fun and traditional feeling but it doesn't make the food tastier or yummier. Actually not many restaurants use banana leaves nowadays and I thought the supplies got lesser due to trees being cut down.ReplyDelete
The plant is really pretty. One glance it looks like a fake. I want to find them and grow in my empty fish bowl.
I touched the plant and it was real hah..hah... Can plant indoors for decoration.Delete
