Colony is yet another venture brought to you by the same team behind Hoppers KL. Remember Hoppers? -( Hoppers KL @ Jalan Pudu – M in Loveeeee! ), Yup, the eatery that offers a selection of Appams? That’s the one. Located right above Hoppers KL, it used to be H by Hoppers – a bar, it now has been revamped and Colony is born. While the liquor section is still readily available …..
They decided to add food into the mix as well. So, compared to Hoppers, which serves mainly appams, Colony focuses on more solid? heavier? meals, ranging from noodles, meat and rotis.
The Kandy, 27.56 ringgit
I have always been a fan of Kothu Roti. Whenever I head to an indian shop, if they do offer Kothu Parotta, I will certainly order it. The kothu I am accustomed to is the kind that originated from South India, the one served here in Colony though is the Sri Lankan version, which I had no idea existed prior to this.
Upon trying it, it seem to be similar to its South Indian counterpart albeit a little dryer. The Kandy is a combination of godhamba roti + curry leaves + eggs + spices , with a side of soft shell crab. I loved it. It tasted like shredded roti canai, with dry curry and spices and egg combined all into one. If your a fan of Kottu Parotha like me, you will certainly be a fan of The Kandy too.
The Madras, 28.62 ringgit
I am certainly guilty of joining the ‘fried chicken’ bandwagon that has taken over Kuala Lumpur the past few months or so. While this hype is almost always associated with the Korean version of it, I am open to trying out anything similar. Judging from the name of this dish itself, I am sure it is evident that this fried chicken has an Indian influence to it. Upon tasting it though, it tasted similar to a Korean Fried Chicken, lol. Tasted really good though, crunchy, meaty and soft. Once you add on some of the mint chutney of sorts onto the chicken – it changes things. The mint give the chicken an extra ‘kick’ ? It just got elevated from good to really good fried chicken. Loved it.
Would I head here again?
Already did, several times and I most definitely will keep heading back there.
