Sri Ganapathi Mess
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Fast becoming an open secret, this place is housed in an actual single-storey corner lot home. The porch area, unusually, has shelves of pottery on sale but don’t let that distract you. Head straight to the ‘converted’ rooms (past the friendly grandma with her wok of boiling oil) for your banana leaf fix. The decor is basic but you’re not here for the ambiance. You’re here for the steaming curries, fluffy parboiled rice, crispy, crunchy fried seafood and chicken and the tonguetingling crab rasam. Have one helping, rest for a bit, and have another. In case you can’t find the restaurant, it is located opposite Sekolah Kebangsaan PJ at Jalan 1/10.
