So, its Klang? The famous Klang, specifically, within this area, where you literally bump into aplenty Indians who will either be busy shopping or walking around for whatever reason only they know best. This part of Klang, Jalan Tengku Kelana, of course is a famous shopping galore. Make sure you bargain, knock the price to deepest down, trust me, you will win, but you know what? After my own experience of shopping today after a lapse of few years, I realize that its the same things, over and over again in most of the retails. Mainly if you intend to buy sarees and punjabi suits, or even costume jewelleries and what not. I had to shop anyway since I come this far, instead of heading elsewhere due to time crisis. Saree sorted and the tailor, despite me practically like begging him for my blouse to be ready within a few hours, he just couldn't accommodate. Looks like I have to made another trip in three days time, meanwhile, after sorting out my shopping, I decided to lunch.
I know and I have also been told that eateries in this part of Klang are not a clean pride. Maybe you can still eat, but the moment you walk to the sink area to wash your hands, oh-my-god. The pong can kill you. Additionally I think you should forget about using the toilets. To tell you the truth, I was quite vary about Beekay's Corner Curry House as well (back lane, half a shop). Then again, there was no way I could have held on to my hunger till I got into my car and drove to another area with my shopping partner. So, I told myself. Let me risk it because such akin home style eateries sometimes are the best food delight. Into Beekay's Corner Curry House, honestly, its just another ordinary Indian eatery. Same ambiance, tables and plastic chairs, and same dishes, curries and banana leaf meal. The corner section where food is kept didn't look really pleasing, I managed to close my eyes and we went ahead and called for our banana leaf lunch..
Banana leaf atop rice, 3 side dishes, chutney, rasam, papadam and curries. The standard fuss free meal, simultaneously arrived the other two dishes. Picturing in such Indian eateries I think is not something usual? Seeming the staff and the few other customers wouldn't stop staring at me. Why? Honestly, I don't know. Thank god nothing unwarranted took place. You know how this Indian staring at another Indian can trigger anger and hatred for no apparent reason? I too didn't want to aggravate anything. Just a couple of pictures quickly, prior to digging into my meal.
What's my verdict? Banana leaf meal by itself is a decent meal. Basically, a meal to kill your hunger. I'm fine. I eat basic food anyway at home. Mutton parathal/curry fared reasonably okay. Curry powder and spices elevated, mutton put my teeth and jaw to good exercise, and the attu kudal/goat intestine curry trended behind. Almost the same fairness, spices and all that supposedly nice, but still, what a rough and tough bite.
The pulled tea/teh tarik we sipped into after our meal, what shall I say? You just know it. You know its made with tin tea leaves. Those commercial tea leaves supplied to Indian restaurants which want to keep their cost low. I am really not sure if RM35.00 was worth for this lunch. To say its special, of course not, to say it's a decent meal, I will agree.
