Masala Wheels @ PJ Old Town: Briyani Sundays

A friend told me about Masala Wheels in PJ Old Town, suggesting that we visit them for their banana leaf rice and briyani. I set a date with my BLR partner-in-crime and come Sunday, I checked their Facebook page to look for their address and opening times and realised that they don't serve banana leaf rice on Sundays!

Despite the boo-boo, we went ahead and visited the restaurant for their Briyani Sundays. We arrived just after 12, so it was easy to secure a table. The setup here is pretty basic, with a blackboard listing "Today's Menu" as well as some of their dishes on display.

Menu at Masala Wheels

On Sundays, chatti briyani is available along with a variety of chicken, mutton and fish dishes. There are three types of briyani on offer, namely mutton (RM16), chicken (RM13) and vegetarian. We went for the mutton and chicken. The briyanis are served in earthen pots which you can scoop out onto your banana leaf "plate". The portions were pretty generous, we shared two pots between 3 adults 2 kids... it was just nice and we didn't leave feeling stuffed.

The briyani was well-spiced, though a little sloppy in parts. The mutton one came with two big chunks of mutton on the bone while the chicken came with a drumstick as well as a boiled egg each. On each table, there are raw onions, chicken and fish curry which you can help yourself to and eat together with your briyani. I liked adding some of the curry onto my briyani, which I feel enhances the taste.

We also ordered a mutton varuval (RM8) and chicken 65 (RM6). The mutton was tender and flavorful and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the chicken too.

*Note: Banana leaf rice is only available on Mon-Sat during lunch. In the evenings, they serve nasi lemak.

Opening times: Mon-Sat 12pm - 3pm; 6.30pm - 9.30pm. Sunday 12pm-3pm.

Price: Total bill RM57, including 7 drinks.

Location: Masala Wheels, 2, Jalan 1/3, Seksyen 1, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. (Street parking available)
