Lunch at Saravanaa Bhavan, Jalan Sultan

Was in the area for a couple of errands and since the car is parked, we decided to drop by Saravanaa Bhavan for lunch as was passing by and had always been curious about the place and had no excuse to come until recently.

The menu is extensive - my eyes got a little crossed just going through the menu. I probably would like a couple more minutes to study the menu proper before the waiter came to take our order. If nothing else, service was prompt, but that's probably because we were either early, or it's just not that busy...dunno lah. There's water jugs and cups on the tables as well as bottled water. If you don't mind paying for bottled water, then go nuts, cos the other one's complimentary. 

Long story short, ordered banana leaf meals (RM10.40) because I couldn't think of anything else. Mind blown when everything came: rice and papadam in a separate bowl, topped with dried chilli with everything else (9 dishes, including dessert) on a tray, each in its own container. As someone who doesn't like having food touch each other but not overly obssessive about it, this I like. Ordered a dish of Mushroom Manchurian on the side (RM13.50). Enjoyed most of the dishes, even though I have no idea what they're called, janji sedap (as long as it's delicious). I even finished the rice, which is miraculous all in itself.

Banana leaf...

In case anyone's wondering: No service charge, just the 6% GST.
