Restaurant Saravanaa Bhavan (Jalan Gasing) Petaling Jaya

Out of the blues, we had this urge of wanting to dine out for a complete vegetarian meal. Rather than getting out there and deciding on which restaurant we should try, we were toying with a couple of vegetarian eateries among the few we were aware of. We were circling in the same issue of deciding on a restaurant  over and over and finally we thought the safest will be another try at Restaurant Saravanaa Bhavan.
Being a Sunday, parking was not difficult to come by and with minutes, we were already inside the restaurant. As most of the tables were already taken by other customers, we got moving to the table the waiter pointed out to. Serve was prompt with the waiter jotting down what we wanted to have and within minutes,our orders were rolling in.

The thali set meal came in a large platter with small bowls of a variety of dishes. Inside was rice, curries, stir fried veges, pickle, fried yoghurt chilly, a large fried papadam, and dessert.

The sides dishes and curries taste right when mixed and eaten with the rice according to my other half. Instead of a set meal, I opted for individual dishes, the vegetarian briyani which came with a bowl of vegetable raita (carrot and cucumber soaked in yoghurt) and a bowl of mushroom plus cauliflower stir fried with spices and tomatoes.
Both of these dishes were flavoured with plenty of spices and its impossible to ignore the lingering fragrances coming out of them.

Similarly, the masala tea was the same, I mean floating with the aroma of spices and frosted with cow's milk. The tea came piping hot and we had to let it sit on the table to cool of the steam. Meanwhile, we drenched our thirst with the mineral water while eating our food.
The carrot halwa came in as the finale to complete my meal and to balance off the spicy taste which was lingering in my mouth.
After one or two spoons of eating the halwa, I could not go any further because it was very sweet and thats it for me, pullstop.  I just could not help wondering whats with the amount of sugar into the halwa and how many people enjoy eating this dessert. Except for the halwa which I regretted ordering, the rest fell in place as our kind of food, what more a healthy eating out meal for which we paid about RM45.00.

Restaurant Saravanaa Bhavan is situated along the main road of Jalan Gasing and its not dificult to look for as the signboard is brightly lighted and beaming clear.
