We accidentally discovered this newbie on our way to Tujoh Cafe. As soon as we learned that they serve banana leaf rice here, we changed direction of course, lol. Big Leaf has been opened for the past 2 weeks and from the looks of crowd pouring in during lunch hour, this may be a neighborhood favorite soon enough.
Banana Leaf Rice, RM 8.50 + Chicken Varuval, RM 8 + Tenggiri Fish, RM 10
Food was pretty good. The Banana leaf rice comes with white rice (they only offer white rice for now, no Indian/brown rice), curry of your choice (chicken, sambar, salted fish and crab) and 3 vegetables (cucumber, bittergourd and cabbage). Depending on the server you get, he’d put very, very little vegetables on your leaf, sooo little that your can scoop it up with a tablespoon. He perhaps has not been to many indian restaurants to know that such small serving size almost never happens, lol. Requesting for more was easy though, he did not put up a fuss while unloading more vegetables onto my leaf.
For the curry, I opted for chicken. I liked that the curry was thick however, it lacked something. Tastewise, it was a little low in spice? I think. No biggie though because where the curry lacked, the fish and chicken varuval made up for it as it came with plenty of flavors and spice. Overall, it was ‘sedap’. I enjoyed the food. I surpisingly ended up farting soo much the rest of the day and guess what the fart smelled like?? Durian!!! How on earth does indian food translate to my fart smelling like durian, I may never know, lol but it sure was potent. Powerrr ooooo! Ummm, this is TMI, huh? Best I stop now. 🤣🤣🤣
