Lunch At JM Bariyani In Bandar Baru Bangi

The title kinda rhyme, doesn't it? Hihi

On Monday, Feb 15th which was the second day of the Chinese New Year we went around Bandar Baru Bangi looking for a good place to have lunch. We had wanted to go to Miyagi Restaurant (a Japanese restaurant) there but like many other outlets around town, it was closed.

Not wanting to have lunch at the many franchised kopitiam outlets scattered there, we went to JM Bariani house to eat briyani instead.
 
Don't know what happen to my photo taking skill, this shot in front of the shop was supposed to include Raimie. LOL
  
 
 
The interior of the restaurant. There's a smoking area outside for those who insist on smoking during/after their meal. Free wifi available here but with the hustle and bustle of the place, this would be the last place I'd do any surfing. 

Service was fast and efficient, so no fault there.
Drinks - sirap, sirap bandung and iced lemon tea. Zaini said if you want to eat briyani, it is only proper to drink sirap. You think so? But damn expensive sirap at RM2.50 per glass.
 
  
I wanted to eat briyani gam but it is only available on Wednesday. I settled for a Ayam Masak Merah briyani set and Zaini went for the Mutton briyani set. The rice was flavourful and fluffy. The chicken was tender and juicy. Zaini said his mutton was just so-so. 

A set for me was not enough because I was still a bit peckish afterwards. So if you are a big eater, I guess you'd better opt for the "Hidang" options instead of the set (or buy two sets!)

A meal for three was just a bit over RM30.00 so it wasn't that bad.

  6. @Bengbeng,
    This dish isn't exactly cheap in KL either.
    The rice is indeed nice. Raimi also doesn't take curry. He just ate the rice and keropok too. :D

  12. But may I ask, why the Malay community like to drink sirap? And what is sirap actually made from? Sorry for my ignorance!

  13. @foong,
    Sirap is essentially sugared water with red colour. :D
    But it is nicer to drink homemade ones because we put pandan leaves in there when boiling it so there's a nice aroma to the syrup.

    Why is sirap bandung calld sirap bandung, BTW? XD
