Sam’s Kitchen and Sam’s on First

By on February 2, 2011 in Food with 11 Comments

Piping hot rice is gently scooped onto freshly cut banana leaves, with savoury rasam, spicy chicken curry and crispy papadom.

Eating as the locals do, with their hands, is a messy but delicious experience. The banana leaf rice is eaten with several choices of condiments such as vegetables, pickles, moru, chutney, rice crackers, sweets and chips for a delightful meal.

Top it all off with aromatic masala tea or local teh tarik for a hearty fare at Sam’s Kitchen.

This quaint restaurant, tucked in a corner of Taman Maluri in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur serves traditional Southern Indian cuisine. Dishes here are specially prepared with the flavours of Karaikudi, by professional chefs with over 50 years of combined food service experience.
