Banana Leaf Rice At UMAC House, Petaling Jaya

Quite some time ago, Mamarazzi saw a blog post by The Ranting Cynic about a hidden Banana Leaf House in PJ

Been meaning to try out that place but.....oh well....only recently did we managed to drop by. Kinda secluded. It's operating from a Bungalow right opposite the road from MAHSA.
 

One set of Banana Leaf Rice(BLR) cost RM5. Quite cheap as compared to others nearby there. Moreover it comes with 5 types of vegetable and heard that on certain days they have more than 5 type of vegetable.

Mamarazzi loves the way they cooked the vegetables. Suit her taste well. But the curry can be a bit fiery . So if you can't stand too much of spiciness, do watch out. Spicy but nice.


Had chicken Varuval. Forgotten how much was that but taste good enough. Meat was tender and well marinated.

Two days later, we came here again with my Kaw Kaw. This time they had fried chicken to go with the BLR. Hmm....not bad. Mamarazzi like it coz the chicken meat doesn't have blood coming out when she cut it. Sometimes when she had fried chicken in BLR, the meat would still be reddish though it's well cooked. Might be due to frozen chicken meat or something


Anyway....Papa ordered Manggo lassi. 

Taste good. RM5 only leh for such a big glass.

Hey! wait up....I managed to get their brochures. The BLR only available day time from 11.30am to 3pm. Then evening they will serve, Western and local favorites like nasi lemak, iddiyapam, Mutton Burger and etc.

    1. It's called Banana Leaf rice coz they put the rice on top of the banana leaf instead of on top of a plate.

      The rice will be either white rice or parboiled rice :)

    1. RM5 kira cheap lo...most now are RM5.50 RM6 and a certain restaurant even charging R<10 per set on weekends. Weekdays RM7 per set.


      So when see this one only RM5 plus the food was good....if course go again la.

      For BLR is most important is the curry la. If curry ngum the taste then the BLR will taste good

      Delete
  11. looks good leh, Uncle SK sure cannot be satisfied with just the veggie only, but will sure order one meat.. the fried chicken seems like a good idea for him.. and then the mango lassi at only RM5 for that huge size, cheap leh.. okay, so already know what to order next time going there!! hehehe~~

  21. The Mango Lassi sounds really good. I love mangos but sometimes they are way too sweet for my body.
