Following my Indian friends, we ventured into Karaikudi Restaurant in Little India, Penang. It is a well decorated air-conditioned Indian restaurant in the street full of Indian shops. Karaikudi is actually a city name in Tamil Nadu state, just north of Kerala.
Of course, we had our Papadam before our main courses arrive.
Briyani is a family of primarily South Asian rice dishes made with spices, rice (usually basmati) and meat/vegetables. We focused on Briyani individual lunch during our first visit. The Chicken Briyani (RM9.50++) is nice and comes with tender pieces of chicken cook with basmathi rice and spices.
If you wanna challenge your stomach, you can order Karaikudi Special non-Vegetarian Lunch (RM16.00++), which come with soup, plain briyani, Indian Bread (Chapati), Chicken or mutton side dish and one scoop choice of ice-cream. For ice-cream, however, I received a yogurt instead, which tastes slightly sour. The curry chicken is nice.
While we almost full with the main courses, here come the eye-catching dish…. (* drum sound *)… Sizzling Brownie (RM10.00++)!! It is freshly baked chocolate brownie with a scoop of vanila ice cream topped with chocolate sauce and cashewnut served on hot sizzling plate. It is extremely yummy and we managed to finished it. Recommended.
The first visit is surprisingly not so spicy, which is good for me.
