Banana Leaf Rice @ Restoran Kanna Curry House, PJ Sec 17
Kanna Curry House at PJ Section 17 is one of the famous Indian restaurants to go for Banana Leaf Rice. I was introduced to Kanna by a close friend of mine who rates it as one of his favorite places to go for Banana Leaf Rice. And I trusted him because we share a similar opinion when it comes to food.
The restaurant is huge, occupying two shop lots and you can also opt to sit at the outdoor area that is nicely shaded with mature trees. Trays of marinated seafood is the first thing that greet customers who enter Kanna Curry House.
The marinated seafood is freshly prepared upon order by deep frying them. The fragrance emitted when the seafood was deep fried was really alluring and we couldn’t resist ordering a portion of squid.
Most of the people dining at Kanna Curry House would have their famous Banana Leaf Rice. I think I saw all of the customers had it on the day we were there. Once you confirm with the waiters that you are having Banana Leaf Rice, you will be given a large sheet of banana leaf with three types of vegetables and papadum.
Those are the basics and eaten just like that traditionally because Banana Leaf Rice is actually a Indian vegetarian meal. But you can always opt for other extra dishes like fried chicken, fish or curries that would be charged accordingly. Anyway, I bet most of you know enough about Banana Leaf Rice so I am not going to elaborate more.
Like usual, three types of gravies are available for you to top up as much as you like. Typically the gravies are fish curry, chicken curry and dhal.
Each of us had an extra fried chicken thigh and we shared a portion of mutton curry. I felt the fried chicken thigh was absolutely delicious for its succulent meat, which had a rich flavor of the spices. Very recommended for first timers or for those who are not that fond of curries. The same couldn’t be said for the mutton curry though, it was nothing to shout about.
Then our sotong goreng came. The portion surely looked huge but it was not all squids you see on the plate. It contained a lot of of sweet onions too. Their shapes were so similar you wouldn’t be able to differentiate them until the bite. Overall it was OK, we were not really taken by it.
The bill came to a total of RM50-60 for three person, not cheap but reasonable considering the amount of food we had. There were some other things that we had but I didn’t show like the deep fried dried chili, which by the way was nice. You gotta give it a try while you are here.
As for the food, I reckon Kanna Curry House’s Banana Leaf Rice is not bad if taken with the delicious fried chicken. But when it comes to curry I feel there are much better ones in Penang.

Ever since I tried Maria’s excellent Western food and cakes, I have not been able to find another restaurant that serve such high quality food at a good value they are offering. Being a family business also means that they are personally involved in choosing the best ingredients as well as the cooking. Like for

Located at the heart of PJ, SS2 is Nyonya Restaurant – a three decades old and pork free restaurant serving authentic baba nyonya cuisine since 1974. Although the current owner is the fourth, changes have been minimal and the dishes are still faithfully prepared according to the original chef’s recipes. I like to start off

A recent visit to Q Wok Nyonya Curry House at Taman Bayu Mutiara near Autocity had us delighted over the good and affordable home cooked traditional Nyona dishes.

Not long ago I popped into Petaling Jaya for the weekend to meet up with my friend who stays at Aman Suria. Not far away from his house (walking distance in fact) is Betty’s Midwest Kitchen, a restaurant serving American styled food specializing in Midwest cuisine ranging from soups, sandwiches, to pork chops and burgers.

If you are a frequent shopper at 1 Utama you would have seen Bar B.Q. Plaza‘s advertisement showing on the screens. Their funny and catchy advertisements never fail to make me stop to watch them. Despite that, I have always been skeptical about Bar B.Q. Plaza. Maybe because their barbecue concept is very much similar

At Sungai Buloh there is a chain of Chinese Restaurant being operated by three brothers. They are all successful and always draw crowds from nearby townships for their cheap and tasty signature dishes. Being brothers, you would think that they offer similar dishes but that’s not the case. Jeff Lee Kitchen is operated by one
