We were in Taman Tun looking to have some banana leaf rice for lunch, and keyed in the coordinates to the local Sri Paandi franchise. Try as we might, we could not find Sri Paandi and chanced upon this fishball noodle shop.


we didn't get the reference to the 60s

right along the main road

set meals part one

set meals part two

their signature dishes

tasteful decor

Brendan had the signature Fishball Noodle Soup with Rice Vermicelli; Cat tried the Stir Fried Lemon Chicken Rice while I sampled the Homeland Fried Rice.

Brendan quite enjoyed his bowl

I had the homeland (?) fried rice

Cat's lemon chicken with rice

Perhaps we had our heart set on banana leaf rice but the dishes were pretty mediocre, not that there was anything wrong with the dishes nor was it bland but Cat and I thought it was just so-so. Brendan enjoyed his Fishball Soup so Cat and I guess we erred in ordering the set meals; in hindsight it was our own fault for ignoring their signature dishes. If you're ever here don't make the mistake we did and stick to their Fishball based dishes.


woot!

The damage? Including a round of Luo Han Guo drink (from the fruit Momordica Grosvernoir, botanical name: Siraitia Grosvernorii) for Cat and I and Iced Lemon Tea the total came to a respectable RM26.30; the everyday food for the everyday person indeed.


what used to be Sri Paandi

After lunch we decided to give Sri Paandi one last try (for future reference) and discovered that the restaurant has transformed into Restoran Istilah… darn!
