22 It's A Seremban Food Trip!

How I love weekends. It's either a trip out of town, the movies, visiting new neighbourhoods or a day with my closest friend. I could go on -- goo-gooing over fresh produce at the local grocer, wandering through bustling pasar malams (night markets), taking in the flowers at Lot 61 ...

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. 

Banana Leaf Rice

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.

  1. Oh yumm i want to visit seremban next time i visit malaysia just to eat at that restaurent!

    1. It's only 45mins out of the city (Kuala Lumpur) and much nearer if you're heading there straight from KL International Airport.. ;)

  2. No chance to try the banana leaf curry rice because whenever we are in Seremban, we will be eating vegetarian. But maybe I can take away the giant curry & dongpo pork bun...heehee...

    1. That sounds like a brilliant plan, Nancy ;) ..it is one of a kind!

  3. Replies
    1. Oh yes, this is definitely something you should try at least once in your life ..!

  4. The fresh buns look great, and the food looks very good, Sharon. I love the restaurant's sign, too! :)

  5. Mouthwatering!! That shiny golden bun and that dongpo pork...just heavenly!

    1. Precisely why I cannot get enough of it..! ;)

  6. Sounds like you tried some great places. But OMG, I want those buns! A bun! Whatever! They look totally fab!

  7. So many side dishes for banana leaf! RM15 each is not expeneive at all considering Indian food is expensive.

    I want the big pau!!

    1. Exactly, I don't think I can find Indian food that is as cheap in KL!

      The next time you fly into KL, Rose - Head to Seremban first direct from the airport, dapao the bun, then go to wherever or whatever you've planned for your holidays ;)

  8. Wow soo yummy! And payasam?? I never had that before, now where should I start? ☺️

  9. Buns fresh look great! I feel a little bit hungry.

  10. OMG, I wanna dig into the pork bun! Drooling now, dear! xoxo

  11. Whoa! you go Jalan jalan cari makan ni...long time never eat banana leaf rice. miss it!
