Ravi's Banana Leaf.

As extracted from The Black Goblin.

Sorry for the long holiday on food stuff, its been a while i have not written anything about food or seriously about the basic thing that i love in my travels which is food.When visiting Kuala Lumpur, if thats the right term for me to say, one finds lots of cuisines that you may choose from, however it still depends on the traveling individual as to how daring his / her taste buds can get to the locale food fair.

One of this cuisines you find popular in Malaysia would be Indian food or famously coined for as "Banana Leaf".. I stand corrected on this. Many will claim that they serve Authentic Indian food and have the best tasting, I wouldn't really know. I have never been to India yet, the closest place i got in proximity to India is the city of Lahore in Pakistan, which is 50km from Amritsar India.
There is a new place to satisfy one's pallete for exotic Indian cuisine, the shop is called "Ravi's Banana Leaf", located at Dataran 3 Two (32 Square) 19/1 Petaling Jaya.

Ravi's has quite a list of gastronomical delights on their menu, having flown in cooks (most important of all) direct from select states of India, in order to deliver a variety of specialties known in parts of the country to their patrons. There are a few personal faveforites that i am able to mention, a known signature in their menu is the "claypot prawn masala." (i don't want to get technical on the recipe, all to say it's heavenly spicy)

Something I have not seen in other banana leaf shops that i've gone to, this makes Ravi's unique in comparison to other shops. The breakfast line up is a must get to try, features the famous Roti canai to the tose, which is served with a selection of pesto sauces and the traditional dahl, and assortments of curry gravies of your choice.

What to expect at Ravi's, a sure guaranty of freshly cooked food and nothing of yesterday's left overs, expect their waiters and kitchen staff eager anxious to get you what you want from the menu, (you may be surprised to later find out you've been waited on by the owner, i wont mention names. I've had a few short chat's with the owner, a very nice and humble natured person), expect a little of confusion sometimes on orders with some waiters (language slang difference) which i'm sure will be gone in no time.

Remember as i've mentioned, majority of Ravi's staff were brought in from India, to serve authentic cuisines of the country, expect the confusion with waiters as temporary and a reason for one not to come back to this place. "Expect the place to be packed specially during lunch", expect to cue up for a table by lunch... (Malaysian saying, "when there is a cue, the food is good") expect pricing to be reasonable when benchmarked local pricing in the area (for a feast like this i find it cheap)
for those clueless on what "banana leaf" dinning refers too, i need not say more... so the next time you got a craving for this stuff, whether you are around Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya ... you got to try Ravi's Banana Leaf ... bet ya its worth the trip. (also have a go with the "mutton varuval" and fried fish tenggiri) till next time, i'm out of here..
