Sri Paandi, Sri Grand City is another legend. Legend in the sense that it has been in this area for the longest time and can be considered as our favourite restaurant as well. Usually, Sri Grand City is our choice when catching up with friends for tea break, over the spread of goodies like vadai, karipap, kuih-muih etc etc. Or we pop by for a banana leaf lunch. But over the years, once our tide diverted because we uprooted our roots to reside in Shah Alam, I know we can still drive to Sri Grand City, but for some reason or rather, we chose not to. Don't ask me why, I really can't nail why.
On this Sunday, I was suppose to cook but considering that I was not up to mark, my beloved imperfect soul-mate felt sentimental and emotional. He wanted me to break-away from rolling the pots and pans, we came over to Sri Grand City. Walking in, there was hardly any breather. I mean, almost all the tables occupied. Peak lunch time. What do you expect? By chance, by fluke shot as I would like to say, we spotted any empty table. The moment we sat, we were attended to immediately. Pretty much straightforward, lunch opened up with banana leaf laid in front of us, followed by serving of rice, curries and veggies of the day, rasam, chutneys, pickle, moor mullagai/yogurt chillies, rasam and papadam.
