I spent my birthday dinner in Banana Leaf in Greenbelt 3. I don’t know, I just miss eating there. I just loved the ambiance and the food there so the food that we ordered were the “must tries” in Banana Leaf.
We ordered Roti Canai as an appetizer. I can probably say that’s it’s like crepe but it’s much thinner. The curry sauce adds to the flavor that really gives you a headstart on what to look forward in the Banana Leaf experience.
For our main course, we ordered 2 entrees: Chicken Curry and a pork dish ( our apologies, we forgot to take note of the name of the dish). The Chicken Curry was a bit spicy which really is the best Chicken Curry we’ve tasted ever. It doesn’t really look good in the food presentation but it gets its redeeming value in the taste. Super yummy! It’s really best to pair it with white rice. As for the pork dish, it’s really good because I can taste different mixtures of spices which I really couldn’t determine what. It’s thinly sliced and I believe it was roasted. It also has a sauce where you could dip it, the sauce tastes a bit sour but that is the right match for it.
These are my ratings for the whole Banana Leaf experience:
Ambiance: 4/5 stars
– The lighting is good, it’s not really that dark and it’s not too bright. They actually have a yellow light and they have mirrors as their walls just to make the place look bigger. You can really feel the Singaporean feeling because they use the actual banana leaves for diners to use instead of plates.
– need I say more? 😉
– the place is a bit pricey but like I said earlier the redeeming factor is the quality of food. Chicken Curry Php 200+, Roti Canai Php 78.00 and Pork dish Php 200.00 +. Spent Php 668.00 for those 3 dishes, plus 2 cups rice ( and tax too 😉 ) There isn’t much Singaporean restaurants around right? So that’s fine.
– The place looks neat and organized.
