wak chai briyani rice

Johore Malay sensations

This Malay restaurant with the "Chinaman" name specialises in whatdoyaknow...!

...Xquisite multi-color beriani/biryani/briyani rice ( Indian / Middle-Eastern / Afghanistan / Iraqi et al Cuisine) and is situated non-chalantly in one of the backrow shops in the Rahim Kajai , Taman Tun ( Kuala Lumpur ) area...

...a place well known for its affluent residents , most of whom from the modern elite cream of local Malay Government / Corporate movers & shakers .

Briyani Special , the stunning lamb shank gulai
claimed to be a delight inspired from an
arts
& craft design studio in Johore
RM10 something ( inclusive royalty)

The very tasty Mee Bandung , a mee rebus / mee jawa look alike .

The sharp sting (SS) we normally associate with this kind of exotic offering tho...
...is noticeably missing

Nevertheless it is a pretty decent and clean place with some other
lip smacking ( we hope ) noodle specialties
which we shall soon be back to try

prices commensurate with the well to do neighborhood so...
...please get ready !

the basmathi rice is so tempting

Another dish that I've never eaten before.... My.. my.... a long list for me :D
While the tri-coloured rice is indeed appetizing, I know the ghee overdrive will upset my stomach so. The Mee Bandung looks a safer, more energetic bet!

Waaaa...how big a hole will a meal here burn in my wallet? =S

This is a potential place for good Malay fare. The Mee Bandung has thick gravy and it look good.

this is a standard dish in many mamak restaurants , expensive and upper class food which tend to be sweeter

This one has no scourching fire so its safe ! But there are lots of cool pubs nearby ( like Sid)

thats the problem with famous high class Muslim eateries( eg Kayu ) where many Gomen people and policemen eat for cheaper so the rest have to pay more...souhds familiar ?

worldW
we missed out on the highly recommended laksam which was not available , but the mee is fine & red
