A sumptuous Indian fare would never go wrong with a wholesome Thali meal, Havana Kitchen has both vegetarian and non-vegetarian versions. For those who are in the mood for more sides, go for the extra orders. The Kerala Fish Stew- Fish Moilee offers a complex combination of flavors- spicy, sour and savory. Do not look down on its pale-looking color, the dish is cooked with heaps of Chilies, making it packed with flavors. It is a good side order to go with any curries as the acidity cuts through the creaminess. For Mutton, the Chettinad Mutton does not disappoint; while some may find the dish a little heavy on spices but for those who enjoy it, they will appreciate the great depth of flavors.
For those who prefer lighter option, go for the Egg Kothu Parotta; a Tamilnadu street food with flatbread cooked with spices. While the dish is enjoyable on its own, it is best shared amongst a few (may get a little monotonous after a few bites). The dish is also served with Chicken Curry. A popular Malaysian choice, Havana Kitchen's Chicken Biryani is amazing. Not only that the rice is expertly cooked with beautiful flavors, the portion is humongous for a mere RM16. Each Chicken Biryani consists of a Chicken Drumstick and a small portion of Chicken Thigh; it is served with Onion Raita and Curry Sauce.
