Sri Nirvana Banana Leaf Lunch

After my mani and pedi at Sommerset, I went to
to Sri Nirvana for lunch as I saw many people at the sidewalk
or rather 5 foot way

 first a banana leaf was slapped on my table
 then one of the many foreign workers came with a pot of rice and gave me some
 next he dished out three types of vegetables
 I supposed they came with the whole package
 ready with a pose for me
 then he came again with three types of curries: fish, chicken and dhall
 then, he came with chillies: glazed whole chilies and sour cream long beans
 there! a meal in itself, but I had pre ordered fish!
 close up of the whole chilies and long beans
 chicken curry and fish curry mixed together because he said the boss won't allow separate plates like I requested.  Small bowl of sour soup 
 my fish, papadum and drink came
 ikan tenggiri (mackerel) that costs more than the main vegetarian set meal
 Isn't that a bit too much for one person? 
the vegetarian set itself would suffice for me
 crowded: even though it was already 3 oclock!
 even though it was busy, one of the owners(maybe the son)
came to serve me quickly, asking me whether I had placed my order.
unlike other busy joints which are too busy they do not
care if you patronise their place or not
 close up of the vegetable dishes: okra in deep fried crispy batter: my favourite
 cabbage in santan with carrots and sawi seeds (mustard leaves seeds)
 cucumber in salad dressing
 I had a table to myself but not for long, a couple came to sit at my table, due to lack of space
 do join me, so I don't have to eat alone, won't you?
 I did not use my fingers, I asked for fork and spoon
 I also asked for a refill of the long beans
 finished! I "ta- paued" the fish and papadum, (doggy bagged them)
The couple who took my table: they had double of the fried fsih and had an additional
double serving of fried crispy sotong (squid)
Restoran Sri Nirvana Manju Sdn Bhd
My bill: expensive for vegetarian rice
and a piece of fish!
