Last Friday, my colleagues and I did this thing I only do once a year: drive out of the office for lunch. (In 2012, it was dim sum in Kuchai Lama) Last Friday, our five minute's drive took us to Jalan Gasing. On the menu: banana leaf rice at Raju's!
The staple at our lunch was a heaping mound of grainy and lightly salted rice, slathered in curry and dhal, coupled with a few vegetable dishes, some poppadum and the extra-special deep fried bitter gourd (which sadly wasn't that great that day). On top of that, we also ordered these amazing side dishes: deep fried sotongs with onion rings, fragrant fried chicken, mutton curry, succulent prawns in spicy sauce and some fried fish. It was a lip-smacking lunch!
The bill for 7 persons came up to RM150 (including countless drinks and two fresh coconuts).
