Mango chutney

I like to eat banana leaf rice (MYR7.50) and when I read about the tasty mango chutney at this place, I had to go and eat it. The mango chutney is right next to the curry gravy on top of the rice. The skin is still on the mango and I ate it as well. Taste quite like the pickled mango skin I used to eat when I was a little girl but sweeter and I can detect a slight glue taste to it so I did not quite like it as I thought I would.

Mutton curry - MYR10

\
Papadam and deep fried gourd - part of the banana rice meal

Deep fried gourd up close.

Nasi Lemak fried chicken - MYR6.60

Mango Lassi - MYR6.20 - sweet and I can taste lychee syrup - so strange

We did not sit upstairs where air-cond is available

This is the popular place due to the affordable price

No service charge but GST = yes.
The MYR2.50 is for iced Nescafe coffee. 3 of us ate banana leaf rice so that accounts for the MYR22.50 shown in the receipt above.

  1. My mother used to make awesome mango chutney but just last year when I asked her, she said she has forgotten how to make it already as she lost the recipe! Sobs. My hubs doesn't like indian food so I can never drag him to eat here. I've eaten banana leaf meal ONCE and once only with my colleagues decades ago :(

    1. So sad to hear your mother has forgotten how to make the tasty mango chutney. So your husband is a true blue Chinese food guy? Hopefully Ethan or Ayden will accompany you to eat banana leaf rice next time. :)

    1. Since it is sweet and sourish, it will taste like mango jam on bread I guess. :)

  4. Wow, the drink price is almost same as the rice???

    Just look carefully, I guess you've type wrong on the price, is RM2.50, instead of RM6.20

    1. No, that MYR2.50 is for iced nescafe coffee. The mango lassi reallly costs MYR6.20

  5. When I eat banana leaf rice, I hardly bother to find out what's what for the side dishes. I just eat whatever they serve me.

    Hmm, the price seems okay though...

    1. Small Kucing posts that mango chutney is only available on Fri and weekends so I went during weekend just to eat the mango chuthey. Yes the price is very ok since you can ask them to top up the rice and curry I think.

  13. I love banana leaf rice! All those little bits of condiments make it so appetizing. I love mango chutney and there is also a mango curry that I had many, many years ago. That was really good but I haven't been able to find it yet.
