Cheeni's Banana Leaf @ Sri Hartamas
November 8, 2016
Cheeni's is helmed by a husband-&-wife team who honour their culinary heritage: Hubby specialises in banana leaf rice & south Indian recipes in a tribute to his late mother Cheeni, while his wife seeks to serve Peranakan recipes from her own family. For now, only the former is available; expect Nyonya-style nasi ulam, ayam pongteh & buah keluak to emerge later.
This new restaurant is off to a satisfactory start - a daily-changing assortment of meat & veggies can be selected for your banana leaf rice meal, which may include the likes of mint squid, mutton varuval, fish head curry, tauhu sambal & brinjal kuttu. Our flavoursome meal for two, complete with textured, fresh-tasting components, plus two protein sides & lassi beverages (one subtly tinged with beetroot, the other with pomegranate), clocked in at RM52. Not a bad bet for banana leaf hunters.
