I'm lucky again then that Miss Chicken and I were strolling past Kamendakendanularoolaroo-blah-blah one lunch time and all I had to say was "let's eat here". Done!
The "Restaurant beginning with K" offers a myriad of cuisines from Malaysia, South Indian, Indo-Chinese and also Sri Lankin, but it's hard to go past the $8.00 lunchtime Thali Plate special.
Thali is a WONDERFUL dish as you get to try a little bit of a lot of things - dahl, pickles, curry (I choose lamb and Miss Chicken goes for...the chicken), rice, poppadums and something sweet to finish with. Often I look at the little serves before me on a Thali plate and think "I won't be full after that", but it sneaks up on you and before you know it you're clutching your tummy.
|Heart shaped rice - awww.|
We also try a Lamb Roll ($1.50) which in essence is a little potato and lamb croquette. Delicious.
When you go to pay your bill at the register there is a colourful bowl of Mukhwas awaiting you. Mukhwas is an Indian after-dinner snack that serves as a bit of a breath freshener and digestive aid. I just love the flavour in Mukhaws - the are usually a mix of fennel and anise seeds - some are sugar coated and so pretty! The aroma and flavour is fantastic - a perfectly exotic end to an Indian feast.
|Scoop a serve into your hand and "bottoms up".|
