Kuala Lumpur - Best Hyderabadi-style Biryani in Town?

  • 3

This small unassuming eatery located on a quiet street near Bangsar LRT subway station serves perhaps the tastiest Hyderabadi-style biryani rice I'd ever had in Kuala Lumpur!

Amazing place. Firstly, I'm surprised by the *variety* of biryani available on its menu, ranging from the ubiquitous lamb biryani to a luxurious giant Canadian lobster biryani (priced at RM240/USD75). Secondly, its biryani packed so much flavours, I felt transported back to Hyderabad, India - where the best biryani on the Indian sub-continent, if not the world, is produced.

I chose the (boneless) chicken biryani this evening. It came on a silver platter, in a little stainless steel pot in which it was steam-cooked. The lid was sealed to the pot with dough, pressure-cooking the contents and ensuring all the flavours and scent from the curried chicken and aromatics infuse the rice. A small decanter of intense-tasting "rasam" soup was served on the side, together with cucumber-onion-yoghurt "raita", a pineapple-cucumber pickle, and some curry gravy.

The chicken pieces were meltingly tender, the rice fragrant, spicy and phenomenally delicious!

  1. Back to Fierce Curry House and tried their mutton biryani this time - superb delectable, meltingly-soft curried boneless mutton cubes snuggled under a blanket of basmati rice perfumed/flavoured by the spices and meat.

     
    1. Klyeoh, the branch at Solaris Dutamas is also good.
