Restaurant Aunty Manju's @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur
Aunty Manju's is a restaurant that is quite famous in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. Perhaps, many people from Kuala Lumpur may have already visited them. I too did visit this restaurant about a year back and found the food to be good. Since we were in the vicinity this afternoon, we decided to drop by again.
The Restaurant In Taman Tun Dr Ismail
This restaurant is located along Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 1, the same row where the famous Restaurant Jaipur as well as Kayra's is. The place is mostly crowded since the food is reasonably good. Since it was slightly after 2 pm, we managed to get a table rather easily. Parking is a challenge here whether it is day or night. My recommendation would be to park at the public car park that is located right opposite this restaurant.
Banana Leaf Rice Meal @ RM 8.50
Their Banana Leaf Rice Meals are pretty famous here. In fact, most of them come here for just this. The other items that are famous here are their Mutton Bone Marrow Curry, Crab Curry and their freshly fried Fish. Since we were in the mood for a vegetarian meal this afternoon, we decided to stick to their basic set. This set is priced at RM 8.50, the same as it was a year back but they had cut down on their vegetables. Previously, they used to serve five vegetables with this set and now, you only get four which was a little disappointing.
Taste wise, their vegetables were good and they were fresh. Just that the beansprouts were a little overdone. Otherwise, I would rate them at 7/10. Their Rasam was good too and my rating for this shall be 7/10 as well.
This time around, their Sambar tasted better than my last visit. It was a little more concentrated and they seemed to be generous with the ingredients. Similarly, their Vegetable Kulambu was to my liking as well. Both curries deserve a rating of 8/10.
Aunty Manju's is a restaurant that needs no introduction to lovers of Banana Leaf Rice Meals. Compared to my last visit, the curries have definitely improved and I am happy to see that the price is still consistent. However, cutting down the number of vegetables served from five to four was a little disappointing. Nevertheless, still a great place to visit for a hearty meal.
Address: 18, Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 1, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur.
