What is Banana Leaf rice?

The simplest way to say it is you put rice on a banana leaf and of course it goes much deeper than that. First, you will need a rice on a banana leaf, not forget about rasam for appetizer and yogurt that is good for digestion. Adding on with some papadom for more crunchy texture, also with 3 side veggies too. Lastly, in Bananabro they have a total of four type of curry best served together with the rice.

In Bananabro, you get to sit in a spacious dining space which I really like. It is located at the East Entrance of Berjaya Times Square. If you are in the mall, just try to locate Hero Market and walk to the end near to the Bus Ticket counter. You can always park your car near to the East side too!

All of their banana leaves are also stamp with their BANANABRO logo too.

One of their signature drink here. Every one of us loves this Teh Tarik Lawa, it not only looks pretty but tastes good too! Compare to the normal teh tarik drink, this drink is not too sweet or heavy for me. It just balances out the sweetness of the Teh Tarik. It was rare for me to actually love Teh Tarik so much!

My first try on Lassi drink! In Bananabro, you can enjoy 4 kinds of Lassi drink from original flavor to soursop flavor too. My favorite was Original and Strawberry. Not everyone loves the sour taste of Lassi but for me, I kinda love to drink sour and cold drinks. It is so refreshing and chilling too!
