Curry Leaf Restau­rant 1273-1275, ground floor, Jalan Rasah, Serem­ban (06 762 8758).

De­li­cious cur­ries from North­ern and South­ern In­dia are the main draw for pun­ters at this restau­rant. One of the best ba­nana leaf shops in town, it’s still go­ing strong after 14 years and it’s re­cently opened a branch in Da­mansara for the city folks. There’s an air-con­di­tioned area for those who wish to dine in com­fort. Go na­tive and es­chew cut­lery to eat like a lo­cal. Veg­e­tar­i­ans can try the palak pa­neer, a mix­ture of cheese and spinach. It’s enough to con­vert even the most diehard car­ni­vores.

NEW Nasi Kan­dar La­wood Jalan BBN 6/1G, Desa Cem­paka, Ban­dar Baru Ni­lai (06 850 2511).

The lunch crowd at the dingy-look­ing Nasi Kan­dar La­wood is noth­ing short of in­tim­i­dat­ing, but you’ll soon see the point after brav­ing the heat and the queues. The ladies of the fam­ily chop the fried chicken in a no-non­sense style; you’ll just have to tell them your choice of chicken breast or drum­sticks and ‘sep­a­ruh’ or ‘penuh’ (mean­ing ‘half’ or ‘full’ re­spec­tively) de­pend­ing on how hun­gry you are. The crispy and juicy fried chicken pro­vides a per­fect bal­ance to the gravy-flooded rice. This re­ally is some of the best Nasi Kan­dar out­side of Pe­nang.
