If I had to pick a place to savour a sumptuous banana leaf meal. It certainly has to be at the "hidden colony", that's what I call this place.

Fast becoming an open secret, this place is housed in an actual single-storey corner lot home. The porch area, unusually, has shelves of pottery on sale but don’t let that distract you. Head straight to the ‘converted’ rooms (past the friendly grandma with her wok of boiling oil) for your banana leaf fix. The basic banana leaf rice (RM6) comes with rice, 3 types of vegetables, acar and pappadoms, all served on a banana leaf. You can choose to have either parboiled or steamed rice, topped with one of four types of curries

The decor is basic but you’re not here for the ambiance. You’re here for the steaming curries, fluffy parboiled rice, crispy, crunchy fried seafood and chicken and the tonguetingling crab rasam. Have one helping, rest for a bit, and have another.

So what are you waiting for?
