Saravana Bhavan never disappoints me, whether I'm at their branch in Chennai, London, Dubai, Singapore, or here in KL.
My fave eatery in PJ New Town is clean, bright and bustling. What we tried this evening:
- House special vegetarian thali set, where 10 types of curried vegetables, pickles and yoghurt-based condiments surrounded a bowl of fluffy white rice, with a chappati bread on the side. It's a veritable vegetarian's dream;
- Paper dosa, served with white coconut chutney, mint chutney and dhal curry dips. The dosa was to-die for: crisp, golden-brown, fragrant, shiny with ghee & outrageously tasty;
- Vegetarian briyani rice. This dish paled in comparison with the 2 earlier dishes, though still good - generous portion of saffron-tinted rice studded with cashewnuts, peas, carrots & other vegetables, perfumed with cumin, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon & other aromatic spices. The side-dish of cucumber-onion raita complemented the rice perfectly.
