As you would have most probably guessed – YES, the briyani is served in a coconut 🙂 However, whether the coconut juice played a role in making the briyani more delicious – that I do not know, or perhaps it is just a case of serving the briyani in an empty coconut? That seems appealing enough, right? It sure was to me, lol, seeing a coconut that was filled with briyani and ooo, the delicious aroma it exuded – yum.
Before we get into the food details…..
The restaurant is located in Kampung Baru Ampang. I’ve been to Ampang plenty but never ventured into this part of town. The eatery is located in a business area? It kindda reminded me of the messier version of Damansara Uptown? Plenty of 3,4 storey shop lots with plenty of eateries and other forms of businesses. The restaurant itself is pretty simple, nothing too fancy like Flour or Anneh. Bright colors, minical decor and pretty spacious. During my time there, I noticed that pretty much all races paid a visit – Indians, Chinese, Malaysia – you name it and this was pretty awesome because I usually see this occurring when the place is slightly more fancier.
Chicken Briyani, 14.90 ringgit
The briyani was delicious. You would not need any curry or anything else. The rice is a lil soggy, sort of like when there is some curry/gravy in it? Yea, it is all mixed up nicely and served in a coconut. You would get spicy, flavorsome briyani rice + tender, meaty chicken thigh + 1 egg, with thairu and papadum on the side. I loved it. It sure was delicious. If there was anything I wished was different – rather than one piece of chicken thigh, why not a few smaller chunks of chicken meat? Other than that, it was all good.
I had to share this dish with my partner and for lunch , sharing did not do it for me. I wanted more lol.
Nyonya Fried Rice, 7.90 ringgit
This dish came recommended. Upon tasting it, I now know why. It is kind of hard to describe how tasty the fried rice was, words just could not do it any justice. The rice may look simple but boy did it taste really good. Good in a way that it sure did leave a lasting impression on my mind. This totally beats fried rice served at most of the mamak and indian resturants. You’s get a mix of everything – beans, chicken, prawns, carrots, in generous servings. Literally every mouth you’d take, some either a chicken in it or a prawn. It was a lil spicy but addictive. That is all I have to say. Do give this a try, really worth it. I just hope the same chef that cooked my dish, cooks yours as well, lol.
Would I head here again?
I most certainly would. Perhaps not as often as I would like because it is quite a distance to reach, but I would definitely pay a visit again.
