[FOOD REVIEW] Barnana Leaf Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur by Masala Wheels

Check out this delicious plate of Briyani Banana Leaf
Being in food heaven a.k.a Malaysia, one of the most popular dishes that we have here would be Banana Leaf. It may be a struggle to find the best Banana Leaf that Kuala Lumpur has to offer, but I've stumbled upon a very unique place within the heart of Kuala Lumpur called Banana Leaf Restaurant by Masala Wheels located just next to Red Sirocco Hotel. Skipping all the hassle, let me share with you a review of what this store has to offer. Scroll away!

The shop is located right nextto Red Sirocco Hotel
The humble menu of what they have to offer
Now, you may see and heard of the basic Banana Leaf, but what if I told you that you can enjoy Briyani and Banana Leaf at the same time? Well, surprise! Instead of the usual banana leaf, this restaurant offer Briyani served in Banana Leaf. YUMMY! There are 3 varieties to try namely, the Vegetable Briyani, Chicken Briyani, and Mutton Briyani. Also, let me just highlight this to you that the Briyani exlusive is available every Sunday ONLY.

Vegetable Briyani - RM12

Vegetable Briyani 
Starting off with the Vegetable Briyani, I must say that this was surprisingly one of my favorite Briyani that they had to offer. Despite it being vegetarian, it's very rich in flavor and very much enjoyable with curry and dhal that is also served with the dish. Not to forget, it's only priced at RM12 per serving and the best part, it's always served hot! So when the Briyani touches the banana leaf (that serves as a plate), the aroma just fills in the air to give you a little teaser of what is going to fill your stomach.

Chicken Briyani - RM18

Chicken Briyani
Especially for chicken lovers, the Briyani rice is actually cooked with chicken leaving the rice grains to be packed with the essence of chicken. Personally speaking, I was surprised to find the dish being very generous with the amount of chicken. The spices of the chicken actually went really well with the biryani dish and I would have to highlight that the chicken was really tender thus really enjoyable to indulge into. The flavour was not at all too strong, and it had just the right amount of flavour within the dish.

Mutton Briyani - RM24

Mutton Briyani
And last but not least would be the Mutton Briyani. I was expecting the spices within this dish to be pretty similar to the chicken biryani, but I guess I was wrong. When I had a bite on the Mutton Briyani dish, im surprised to find that the taste of mutton was all over each grain of rice. The portion of the mutton wasn't as much as the chicken, but I guess it does fills the tummy pretty well when youre hungry considering mutton is a little more on the heavier side when it comes to digestion. If you love mutton, then this is a must-try!

Always served with a clay pot where the Briyani is prepared and served on banana leaf
Nothing beats enjoying Briyani with a glass of Teh Tarik Ice
I guess to conclude my visit here, I would have to say that I love the presentation and the taste of the food! The biryani is served in a clay pot being poured onto your banana leaf plate, accompanied with a whole egg, fermented onions, curry and dhal for you to enjoy. Im usually not a fan of curry from the typical 'Mamak stalls', but their curry is definitely one of a kind. It's very rich in flavor and trust me, you'd have no regrets dining here! it's reasonably priced and won't burn a hole in your pocket. The menu is pretty straight forward and what they offer is what they take pride in. So, if youre looking for some good Briyani Banana Leaf in Kuala Lumpur, I recommend you try this!
