Best Banana Leaf Rice in Kota Kinabalu

Written by Updated ago

Banana leaf rice is quite an odd craving that most people will have. Though it's not entirely surprising as the meal consists of various vegetables cooked in different method, plenty of rice and of course, curry as well. These are the elements, along with some side dishes for the willing that makes banana leaf rice so special. There isn't a banana leaf restaurant that offers the exact same sort of side dishes, which makes things even better.

    Sri Latha Curry House has been claimed by many as one of the most under-appreciated restaurant that offers a great banana leaf rice. Being a bare-looking place, not many would expect Sri Latha to excel in anything - especially when it comes to banana leaf rice. Fortunately, all their efforts are not gone to waste as good food shall prevail. It's simple, hearty and affordable. One should also try the butter chicken as it is a great pair to the banana leaf rice.

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A cozy place with comfortable chairs.

    Teh tarik.

    K Sanba's Curry House

    K Sanba's Curry House is also another great place to get your daily fix of banana leaf rice. Though their portion may be slightly smaller in comparison to some others, their choices and flavours do match up. Their version is also noticeably spicier than  others, which gives you that really nice kick and adrenaline. Complex flavours, lovely variety, not-so-sinful-portion and a dish well remembered.

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A clean and well-maintained place.

    Roti & Chaai may sound like a place for roti canai (which isn't entirely wrong but it's more towards naan), but it's also a place for nasi briyani and banana leaf rice. They're initially famous for their briyani, which promises a complex range of flavours that is guaranteed to excite. Similarly, the banana leaf rice comes with vegetarian side dishes that excels in texture and flavour, while the choice of curries are diverse.
