If you’re a thosai addict like I am, then you need to check out Asian Rice Pot. This place does the most awesome Ghee Thosai on earth. It’s so crispy, yet soft and flavourful, I would go so far as to say, one of the best in PJ for just RM2.50.
One of the places we love to visit in Pudu, for some carbo loading, is this place we call, the “Pudu Chinese Indian Rice”. Run by a friendly Chinese lady, you would mistake this place for authentic indian rice, except that the cook is Chinese. Cumi, in his youth, before his intolerance to caffeine developed, […]
“No no no.. it’s Devi’s upstairs.. that’s where you want to eat!” (wiggles head.. & speaks with a thick Indian accent). That’s what my hardcore banana leaf eating friends tell me. And yes, there is a difference. The upstairs and the downstairs. The reason why we hardly eat at Devi’s is because we are inexplicably […]
Talk about reaching Nirvana.. at Sri Nirwana Maju! Why does vegetarian Indian taste so good? Heck some say it tastes better than the real deal.

From the garish Bollywood posters to the flower sellers who are busy stringing jasmine flowers non-stop to meet the demand, you know you have arrived in “Little India”, Brickfields. Every corner you turn there are shoppers haggled over […]
Kashmir Cafes can afford to be complacent. It has a steady stream of clientele and the place is normally packed for lunch and dinner. It’s one of the few restaurants I know that does banana leaf rice in a superbly clean, comfortable and air-conditioned environment, that passes my test. I’ve eaten enough southern Indian food in […]
That familiar entrance.. How many times have we crossed that threshold.. How many people have we brought to visit its eating hall.. We Malaysians are a lucky lot. Here in our multiracial community, we have exposure to all sorts of cuisine. Chinese, Indian, Malay.. you name it, we have it. Some of these ethnic cooking […]
There’s a lot to like about Chutney Mary’s, a small restaurant located on the trendy Bangsar strip, known as Jalan Telawi. The dramatic use of color — red, purple, green, orange, gold — gives the place a bright, contemporary look that is also quintessentially Indian. The food is good, the price though on the high […]
