Here's a post about the place to eat at my workplace. This post is perhaps the only and only post about places to eat at my workplace. Where I work, which is at Aked Esplanad, Bukit Jalil, there's really nothing to eat. One coffee shop, one mamak shop, one nice little cafe and one restaurant, that's all. And seriously, if you need to have lunch at these 4 places everyday of the week, you'll run out of choices very fast.
And of all places, the only one worth mentioning is the seafood restaurant called Esplanad.
So far, we've been there for dinner once, and for dim sum once.
For dinner, here's what we ordered ...
Claypot tofu, which is really not bad.
Curry fish, which is also not bad but not that good as well.
Simple stir fried veggy.
The dim sum they have here is much better. In fact, I like this dim sum better than others that I've tasted. Here we have char siew pau.
There has always been a 'debate' as to which place serves better Banana Leaf Rice ... Nirvana or Devi's Corner at Bangsar.
I've decided to try both and here's my conclusion ...
As far as the curry is concerned, Devi's corner has very nice fish and crab curry. Not to mention that their curry, especially fish and crab curry comes with huge pieces of fish meat and crab!
As far as the sides that comes with the banana leaf set itself, Devi's corner has more sides, but their deep fried bitter gourd is really not nice, compared to the one in Nirvana.
As far as the side orders are concerned, Nirvana has nice side orders, i.e., the deep fried tenggiri, sotong and curry chicken. I definitely prefer the side orders of Nirvana compared to Devi's corner.
So my conclusion, well if I want to have a banana leaf set on its own, without any side dishes, I'd go to Devi's Corner, but if I want the side dishes, I'd go to Nirvana. The only plus point is that Nirvana offers banana leaf rice the whole day whereas Devi's Corner only offers it during lunch.
