Penang - Best South Indian Breakfast at Sri Ananda Bahwan

klyeoh | Sep 22, 201105:30 AM

Sri Ananda Bahwan is my fave breakfast joint in Penang's colorful Little India - they serve the crispiest dosas, the fluffiest roti canai (Malaysia-speak for paratha), the tastiest upumas, the softest idlis and the puffiest pooris in Georgetown. It's also got a comfortable air-con dining area, which sets it apart from other Indian restaurants serving South Indian breakfasts in that area.

My latest "food find" in Sri Ananda Bahwan (lost count of the number of times I'd been there) was the Kottu Parotta - paratha bread, choped into small pieces & fried with peppers, onions, chicken, egg & spices, including curry gravy. It's a mish-mash of textures & flavors - in fact, watching the cook prepare the dish on the huge hot-plate was an experience in itself: a noisy clanging of 2 metal spatulas he held in his hands against the hot, flat metal surface as he chopped the paratha & ingredients like a possessed adrenaline-high teppanyaki chef gone berserk.

One of my fave dining spots in Penang :-)
