Brown Sugar Paal Appam Ceylonese Chicken Kodayyal Rice Packet Jalan Sultan Kothu Chicken Roti New 2022: Oct Petaling street Pork Free Sri Lankan food in KL

The Lankan KL at Jalan Sultan, Petaling Street – Oooo yum ! (Pork free)

There is a new opening within the popular foodie haven of Jalan Sultan in Petaling Street – The Lankan KL. As its name suggest, it serves Ceylonese/ Sri Lankan cuisine. If you’re familiar with the area, you’d know that there is an array of cuisines readily available here for your choosing. Now, one can add Ceylonese into the mix.

PARKING: Parking by the roadside during lunch hour is close to impossible here. Worry not as there is a basement carpark a few doors away at 5 Elements Hotel, at a rate of RM 4.50 per hour.

The restaurant certainly was aesthetically pleasing. It was simple, yet colorful. The color tone, reminded me on the sea, ocean … which I suppose is what they were going for. Peaceful and calm it was. Customer service was good. They were more than willing to explain a dish when I was unsure what it was while also suggesting items based on my needs and preference.

First dish I went for was the Brown Sugar Paal Appam. As I am a fan of appam, naturally whenever I come across it, if possible, I’d give it a try. I got so used to the size of the appam shrinking over the years, smaller and smaller in size that I was pleasantly suprised to see a large one served here πŸ˜… It was delicious. Crispy edges with soft, gooey and dense centre with just the right amount of sweetness from the brown sugar.

The Chicken Kodayyal Rice Packet was yummy, me like. Flavorful rice with a generous portion of chicken, onion, chilli and etc. I enjoyed this dish but if I could change one thing, it would be the absent banana leaf. A ‘rice packetwould entail a dish being wrapped in banana leaf? Pretty much all the Ceylonese rice packets I’ve ordered elsewhere came wrapped in banana leaf and in some ways, it helps retain the moisture, denseness of the dish until unwrapped. It also gives out an aura of autheticity which was missing here πŸ˜” but good thing was that the dish was still yummy nevertheless.

As for the Kothu, I initially wanted Kothu Idiyappam but that unfortunately was not available for the day, so I went with Chicken Kothu Roti instead. Just like the other dishes, this too was yummy with equal part chicken and roti.

Would I head back here? Yes. I look forward to indulging in another round of appam and rice packet, kothu. Oooo and perhaps the Lamprais too.

Address: 57, Jalan Sultan, City Centre.
