Kovai Spice @ Petaling Jaya
My sister recommended Restoran Kovai Spice as she had it before with her friend and she commented that their food was excellent and very good on price. Therefore we decided to have it for lunch. Kovai Spice is located at Kelana Jaya, Petaling Jaya. We were greeted at the entrance and the staff seated us in the 4pax table. Once seated, the staff gave us the menu. After flipping through the menu, we ordered Masala Tea, Gulab Jamun, Mushroom Pepper Fry, Prawn Briyani, Egg Briyani, Thali Meals and Fish Pepper Fry. A couple of people occupied the restaurant when we arrived at 11.20am however most of the tables are reserved for lunch later on. The ambiance of the restaurant was good to enjoy the meal.
Masala Tea was damn good so I ordered an additional cup of it. Must try in Restaurant Kovai Spice.
Masala Tea @ RM 3.90
Briyani was irrestiably delicious. It tasted exactly same like the one I had in India. Yum, I have requested my sister to take away for me whenever she happens to be dine here in the near future. The staff told us that the briyani will be cooked separately and the special ingredients (Chicken, Prawn, Egg, Mutton) will be added at the end before serving to the customer. Hence, whatever briyani you have ordered will have the similar taste except the special taste from the ingredients. For Prawn Briyani, it was served with the fried prawn and onion raita at the side and while for egg briyani, hard-boiled egg is placed on the top of it.
Prawn Briyani @ RM 16.90/Egg Briyani @ RM 9.90
Fish Pepper Fry is my sister’s all-time favourite in Restaurant Kovai Spice. It’s quite spicy yet tasty and delicious curry that pair well with the rice.
Fish Pepper Fry @ RM 17
Mushroom Pepper Fry is very delicious by all means. It’s my all-time favourite in any Indian Restaurant.
Mushroom Pepper Fry @ RM 9
Thali Meals was yummy. I loved their spinach, vadai, payasam, rasam and tomato chutney. Actually, everything I tried tasted good and I just loved it.
Gulab Jamun tasted so good that we ordered an additional 1 to share among us. Soft and spongy Gulab Jamun that just melts in the mouth.
Gulab Jamun @ RM 5.40
Overall, it was an excellent lunch and all of us really enjoyed it. The food was excellent and very good on price. Definitely will be back again.
