Stay inside…

Last Sunday, we went out for lunch. I asked my girl what she would like to have and she said she would want to go for the nasi biryani here…AGAIN! I said we were there just the other day but she insisted – she loves the nasi biryani from the North Indian chef so much, more authentic than elsewhere, she says and she doesn’t mind going for it again and again.

This round, she went for the butter tandoori chicken curry biryani

…which, of course, took a while as the guy cooks the biryani rice from scratch upon order, not like most places where they cook one whole tub and scoop to serve to you when you ask for it. He also cooks the tandoori chicken fresh and uses it to cook the butter chicken curry – that is why you get the lovely fragrance of the tandoori-cooked meat in the dish. Needless to say, you will need to wait a bit but it is well worth it.

I saw that they had quite a lot of new dishes in their menu including some korma chicken or lamb and I requested for the latter with biryani rice…

…to try. It was very nice, completely different from our Malay kurma meat dish which, I feel, is something like their opor ayam

…on their Indonesian menu. Of course, my missus had something from that, with a special request for it to be super extra spicy, their mee nyemek

…and yes, it was good, something like our mee mamak.

We were served this seafood mixed vegetable dish…

…on the house to try and yes, it was great. It had a tomato-based gravy though – personally, I would prefer curry.

Yes, they have not put out the tables and chairs outside because of the SOP so once again, we had to sit inside. I am very sure you can tell the difference in the photographs, the current ones and those before, taken when we were outside where it was much brighter.

I forgot to ask for the cashier’s receipt so I do not have the itemised prices of what we had. Anyway, the bill came up to RM70.50, inclusive of drinks – I had their very nice Indian ginger tea and my girl had their iced lemon while the mum had sky juice. I did not have anything smaller so I paid using a RM100 note and the kind and generous boss gave me a discount on the bill and passed to me RM35.00 change. Ain’t that nice?
