    To many, Asian Rice Pot at SS5 offers one of the best Malaysian indulgence, packed with curries, rotis and yours truly, thosai. Made to be thinner than most places, it helped in terms of crusting the edge a tad quicker, giving it that nice contrast of texture between the edge and the core. The taste of the thosai too is noticeable, but subtle enough to enjoy with some amazing curries!

    Tips

    Several types of curries and mint sauce are provided.

    Things to expect

    A warm and cozy atmosphere.

    Lassi.

    Known to be one of the best spots in Petaling Jaya to relish curry fish head and banana leaf rice. However during breakfast hours, their thosais does stand up as the best seller. The crepes come in various flavour profiles but one that is simply too yummy to resist is their rava version. The batter is liberally loaded with green chillies, onions, curry leaves and mustard seeds, then made to crispy perfection on the griddle. The portion is pretty huge and the flavours are spot-on, especially when it’s dunked into series of curries that are nothing but savoury. Bloat up your tummy amidst a modern and warm backdrop.
