Onam Special...

Yesterday was Onam festival....something like Deepavali but this one is for Malayalees.
So, Ms.Dinner Date (as the name suggests) and I went for a dinner at Kerala Cuisine in Little India, not knowing the fact that Kerala Cuisine have been shifted.

So, we reached the place around 7.20 and went straight to where Kerala Cuisine (KC) used to be..and found Appolo's Banana Leaf Restaurant instead. She tried calling couple of her friends before the confuse us with the direction. Then I asked a lady from the souvenir shop...she was friendly....but she wasn't helping me. Then I walked over to another souvenir shop and asked the uncle who showed me the right direction. Thanks uncle.

So, we went to KC which is now located at basement of the newly opened Tekka Mall. Surprisingly the place wasn't crowded. We walked straight to a table and sat happily waiting to try their Kerala food. She was dying for it.

Within a few seconds, the waiter came over to our table....

Waiter : Onam Sathya.
Me : What is that?
Waiter : Onam Sathya?
She : Happy Onam to you too.
Me : Oooh....you are wishing me happy onam is it? (talking to the waiter). Happy Onam to you too. Whats special for today, since its Onam?
Waiter : Onam Sathya.
Me : Wait, Onam Sathya means food is it?
Waiter : Yes.
Me : (thinking) say so lah....how do you expect me to know your language!
Me : Ok ok, get us 2 set please.

Ha ha ha...

Anyway this is what we ate. It was sweet and had a lot of taste to it, compared to south indian meal which I'm used to.....


Our main course.....

side dishes....

After our meal we ordered tea and to our astonishment KC doesn't serve hot drinks!...mmm I wonder why? National Security issue perhaps....

Since Ms.Dinner Date needs tea right after her meal...just like guys who like to smoke right after their meal, we had to walk to Komala's Villas to have our tea.




The tea, not Tea Loni!


After the tea, we walked to the Komala's Snacks & Sweets shop to buy laddo, pal goa, halwa and murukku. (sorry no pictures)....

When the shopping is done, its time to get back home. The thing about Little India is that, its so difficult to get a cab around this area although you will see hundreds of them.

And we were home by 9.15! Phew.....Happy Onam to all....

p/s : Saw this interesting score board erected right in front Caltex House, Raffles Place. Check out the 3rd name on the WOMENs leaderboard. mmmm..wonder how it found the hole!
