The Kayu Lunch In Mid Valley

Only realised there's a Original Kayu Nasi Kandar outlet right here in Mid Valley when I was trying to figure out where to go for a group lunch.

A curry fix so near!

A fish head curry head fix, summore!
Was surprised when this was brought out for us. It was HUGE! I mean, the spoon you see in the photo is actually senduk size! The plate was actually "dulang"/tray size, I kid you not!

I even asked the manager whether this was two portion instead of one. Nope, one kepala. One portion. For five people (I think it can comfortably feed 8). And we ordered more food!

Probably could have just eat this and be totally full. 
Fried chicken with lotsa sprinkling of fried onions and curry leaves. Yummy! There were squids ordered too, but I was already pre-occupied with my fish head to bother about it. LOL
A bowl of curry mutton with some veges and curry veges too. The mutton was so nice and tender. Yummmsss...

Service was fast although it was expected there'll be some communication problem with the waiters. I took the easy solution - tell them to get the manager talk to me. Ahahah...

Anyway, he was nice and helpful. Didn't give discounts when I called up earlier to check on their menu (Boo! LOL) but all was forgiven upon seeing the size of the fish heads that were served to us. The huge portions made us tapau'ed some fish head and I brought back curry mutton for hubby to enjoy with his dinner. ^^

Spent about RM35+ per pax for the lunch which to me is quite reasonable as it came with unlimited rice and drinks. We've spent RM50 for 2 pax, just for a small fish head curry lunch elsewhere...

So... ehem ehem... anyone wanna do gathering here with me sometime? Hihihi

The outlet is beside CIMB Bank *hint hint*

  2. Pak Lah and I are also great fans of this Kayu Nasi Kandar which claimed to be from Penang. I love their spices in the curries. I found the Kayu outlet behind Penang's Vistana Hotel in Bukit Jambul is so different. The outlet is huge and people queue up at near midnight which is crazy!! I tried and understood! Most of their chain outlets may not have the same QC in cooking, so it may vary.

    1. I will definitely head to this outlet at MV since our Mak Glam has left foot prints there! Most bloggers seem to influence me to try new makan outlets. Better trust bloggers than paid journalists, right? Ha Ha

    1. i don't fancy kari kepala ikan, if there is a dish like that, i will only take the curry gravy and the veggie, that already can make me have two bowls of rice, haha!! same goes to curry chicken, i tend to only take the potatoes and occasionally i'll hunt for the chicken breast only..

    2. but i manyak suka that fried chicken dei!! OMG, those fried onions and curry leaves they generously gave looked so delicious!! and i probably would end up enjoying the onions more than the chicken pieces themselves, haha~~ :p

    3. ah, i see the cucumbers and also keropok!! okay, i will settle with some rice to go with the fried chicken (plus lots of onions), the cucumber and keropok, plus a little bit of the gravy from the fish head curry and mutton~~ good and sedap enough for me!!!
