This one weekend, Hubs and I decided on a food trip to Seremban. We started with brunch at a banana leaf restaurant and ended the day with a Lucky King Bun takeaway.
Curry Leaf Restaurant
Eating with your hands? It's the stuff of heaven. Leave the spoon and fork aside. I'm exaggerating but truth be told, there's nothing quite like a meal of rice and curry on banana leaf enjoyed without the taste of stainless steel and the awkward twists and turns of a fork to cut out a piece of meat from fried fish. Use your fingers - it's the most authentic and easiest way to eat. When in Rome, do as the Romans do ...or we could go with -- 'It's a free world.' Whatever makes you happy.

We paid just a little over RM30 for two banana leaf rice sets, mutton, fried fish, and drinks. The set comes with a basket of papadum and would you believe 8 side dishes? That's not counting the gravy. I was bowled over by the variety and the generous portion!

After we finished our meal, they served us a bowl of payasam. It was a delicious dessert that I would have asked for seconds had I not been full.
We reached the place at 11.30am. It was good timing and we avoided the crowd. The restaurant was full from 12PM-ish.

Lucky King Bun
Again? Yes, again! We had a goal to try all three varieties of the bun. It took several separate trips to achieve this but I'm happy to report that it's now 'mission accomplished'. Chicken Curry, Pork Curry, Dongpo Pork - been there, ate that!

The RM40 price tag on this bun is no surprise considering that there are two meat dishes wrapped inside.

What's next on my bucket list? A trip to Kampar, my dad's hometown, to try out more huge Curry Buns. Who's with me?
