What’s the similarities between currency exchange and nasi briyani? Well, for one, visiting one of these outlets is always a good idea before heading overseas for any amount of time, and of course, they’re also associated with the Indian Muslim communities in the country.

Briyani rice is often cooked in a big pot and served on a plate, but at Taman Andalas, you’ll find the appropriately named Bamboo Briyani Taste & See doing things a little bit unconventionally, and yep, you guessed it right, the nasi briyani here is cooked in bamboo container.

While lemang is cooked by placing the rice in bamboo over fire, this briyani is prepared by having the rice in bamboo, covered with a piece of banana leave, and then steamed. It is also during this time that the taste of meat and fragrance of briyani rice come together.

The ingredients available includes lamb, chicken, fish, vegetarian, and so forth.

Well, my go-to when it comes to briyani is always lamb, and I’m happy to report that over here they certainly did it right. The lamb was tender, flavorful, and definitely went well with the briyani rice and the curry added to the mix.

You do also get a bit of salad and some lady’s fingers on the side, which was welcoming, though I was hoping they come with the full compliment of a banana leaf sort of condiments instead.

A portion of lamb briyani is priced at RM 12, while other varieties go for a bit cheaper. Personally, I think it is definitely worth a try for any briyani or even banana leaf rice fan.

Discuss : KY eats – Bamboo Briyani Taste & See, Klang

  1. Oh my! Cooking it in bamboo will surely bring it to a whole new level.

  2. Looks so nice! but I stay so far away from Klang leh. tapau please

  3. I would never have guessed those two connections 😉

  4. Haha how in the world can you connect biryani and currency exchange? I would have never put them both together but now come to think of it… wow.

    Bamboo briyani is new to me. I must try this when I visit my friend in Klang in the next two weeks.

  5. I’m not fan of Briyani Rice or Banana Leaf Rice but I like Indian style curry mutton!

  6. I’ve never had bamboo briyani. It’s great to see you eating briyani with your hands…nothing quite like eating BLR and Malay rice with hands…extra tasty (but I only do that if I tapau home…hehe!) ;D

  7. kekeke rosberg

    The idea must be from Swak and Sabah where lots of meals are cooked in bamboo in the jungle. But ah uncle KY only eat in air conditioned coffee shops in KK #lol #kek

  8. KY, I love this dish had Taiwan style rice dish cooked some what this way too.

    • Vickie: Ooo I didn’t know there’s a taiwanese version.

      • kekeke rosberg

        Is cooked by native Taiwan island people. All Pacific islanders incl Iban and Kadazan originate from this place #realfacts
