Kuala Lumpur - Banana Leaf Lunch at Sri Nirwana Maju



Having really enjoyed our banana leaf thali and Bakti Woodlands, we were eager to try something similar at a different place.



While Brickfields is more traditionally known as the "Little India" of Kuala Lumpur, we found that a lot of places we were interested in were showing up in the nearby Bangsar neighborhood instead. We made the short trek out there one day to have lunch at Sri Nirwana Maju restaurant.

We both had the banana leaf lunch. This was not a strictly vegetarian restaurant - the sauce for the rice had chicken, fish and veggie versions.



The star of the show for us was the red-colored vegetable pictured above. Not sure what the veg was - maybe some sort of squash (the red was an added color). It was coated in a delicious batter and fried to a nice crispiness.



We also got piece of fish - which we think was horse mackerel. Tasty, and a nice accompaniment to the meal.



The place was doing a brisk business inside and out, and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
