Going Banana

Hello wonderful people of random blogging~

I know it has been a while since there has been any post, but what better way to start off the holidays with another food blast!

Once again, the restaurant I am highlighting today is located up in Northern California at Milpitas, CA. This restaurant has always caught my eye when I went up north and I finally had the privilege to try it.

The restaurant's name is called Banana Leaf... It looks pretty cozy and it is :]

This dish is called Roti Murtabak, which is a multi-layered bread with beef, egg, and onion dipped in curry sauce... yum~

This was the curry sauce and it was delicious!

This is how it looked with all the goodness spread on it

This was one of the poultry dishes and it was great, but hard to eat alone so you need some sort of rice to help you through this course

This is where the Pineapple Fried Rice comes in and this plate is delicious as it is inviting. It is made up of pineapple bits (obviously), cashews, shrimps, chicken and peas

This dish is called the Malay Sizzling Beef, and yes it is sizzling hot~ this was also a great addition to the combination we had

Yea, it was a lot to get through, but it was sooo good!

There was of course room for dessert! This was deep-fried mango ice cream and deep-fried banana

Overall, this was a great experience and I hope that there will be more opportunities to try more exotic food. Never be afraid to try new foods and culture because you'll be surprised how much you are missing out if you are afraid to be open minded and hearted.
