Banana Leaf Rice @ Bangsar

Today I want to introduce an Indian food call Banana Leaf Rice. Some of you may have already tried the Banana Leaf Rice. So far I tried 2 times only and both also at different restaurant. I personally prefer the second restaurant that I went to eat the Banana Leaf Rice which I will introduce today.

The Devi's Corner @ Bangsar

The Devi's Corner

There is a restaurant call Devi’s Corner in Bangsar Baru serves Banana Leaf Rice. That day, my friend came to find me for lunch and she wanted to try the Banana Leaf Rice in Bangsar. So we decided to try it in Devi’s Corner. They only serve Banana Leaf Rice at 1st Floor of the restaurant. The ground floor of the restaurant is just like the normal Mamak stall.

Banana Leaf Rice of course must have a banana leaf placed in front of you. They will put some rice at the center of the banana leaf then they will put some side dishes beside the rice. You can check the picture below to have a look at their side dishes that they serve. After that you can choose different types of gravy to put on top of your rice. That day I choose their curry gravy. This is the standard Banana Leaf Rice which cost RM 6.

For those who want to have extra dish like chicken, fish or mutton, you can order it seperately and eat with the Banana Leaf Rice. That day we ordered one chicken and one fish to try. The chicken and fish were very nice. The chicken and fish cost RM 11.50 in total.

Farewell Dinner@Victoria Station for Jun and Tan

Victoria Station

Victoria Station

Last Friday my office had a farewell dinner at the Victoria Station in Bangsar for 2 interns, Jun and Tan. This was my first here in Victoria Station and the feeling in the restaurant is very good. Nicely decorated and got 2 mock up train in it. We actually sit inside one of the train enjoying our dinner. Victoria Station is popular for its steak (mainly beef but they do serve chicken and seafood). I can’t eat beef due to religion so I had lobster and chicken set. The lobster is so nice and make me want to come here again next time.

A lot of people like to come to eat here. During lunch time, the shop is packed with people especially on Monday and Friday when he sells Curry Mee and Prawn Mee. You have to come early else the owner will say “Bo Liao” (in Hokkien means No More). They offer in 2 sizes small and big.

Little Penang@Midvalley

Last few days I went to Little Penang restaurant in Midvalley to have to my dinner there. This restaurant offers one of the best Penang food in Kuala Lumpur. I went there with one of my friend. We ordered Chicken Nasi Lemak with Ayam Kari Hantu (Ghost Chicken Curry), Cendol and ABC kacang. The nasi lemak is very nice with thick curry gravy which have a very nice aroma in it. The Cendol and ABC kacang is very smooth. I love the food there.

My Today’s Meals

Today I ate Tempura for lunch in tempura restaurant and cook spagetti with tomato sauce myself at home. I like the tempura here because it taste nice and is fresh… They only fry the tempura after you order it. The tempura set I ate today just 500 yen which is the cheapest. They got a lot of varieties including vegetarian set. Below are the pictures of my meals…. hehe.

What do I eat for my daily meals here in Japan?

Today already 7th day in Japan. I getting used to the environment here… I’m sure you all wondering what do I eat everyday and how much is one meal here in Japan. There’s way to save here if you know how to find cheap and good food. In Kawaguchi, you find tons of restaurant here. Until today, I tried their italian restaurant, Japanese curry rice, Obento (set lunch), Taiwanese restaurant, Hong Kong Restaurant and McDonald. Usually for lunch I will go to restaurant to eat and for dinner I will go to supermarket to buy Obento to eat. Wondering why at night I go buy Obento to eat? Because they don’t keep overnight their Obento that they cook that day. So they will give discount on Obento and a lot of Japanese buy Obento at night for their dinner.

Their Obento price is ranging from 350 yen up to 600 yen and eating in restaurant ranging from 700 yen up to 1200 yen per meal. 350 yen Obento consider very cheap here if you are earning Japanese Yen. The best way to save money here is to cook yourself. Today I went to supermarket to buy spagetti and sauce to cook spagetti myself to eat. I calculated that 1 meal just cost about 150 yen if I cook spagetti myself. So it is all up to you whether how much you want to save here. Below are some photos on Obento that I ate.
