6 modern eateries for memorable biryani in KL

Biryani restaurants have been part of KL’s culinary landscape for decades, but here are six relatively young eateries that also make a memorable biryani.

1. Flour at Bukit Damansara

Flour’s biryani is impeccably prepared to convey soulfully nuanced flavours and moist, fluffy textures, balanced with chunks of beautifully marinated chicken. Eat it on its own or with some raita; it’s one of Bukit Damansara’s best bets for RM18 – this is knock-your-socks-off, no-regrets biryani.

Address: 69-71, Jalan Medan Setia 1, Plaza Damansara, Damansara Heights, 50490 Kuala Lumpur.

2. Nadodi at Jalan Yap Kwan Seng

16. Nadodi-min

Nadodi’s 21st-century biryani is constructed with Tamil Nadu-cultivated starchy short grains, yielding a texture that edges slightly toward that of risotto, served with tossed onions topped with a spheroid that bursts open with yoghurt (inspired by Bangkok’s Gaggan), plus aubergine in peanut masala gravy.

Address: First Floor, The Mayang, 183, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, 50450 Kuala Lumpur.

3. Qureshi in KLGCC

Terrifically tender marinated lamb in saffron-scented, subtly spiced biryani rice is a highlight at this upmarket restaurant whose founders belong to the family of Indian Master Chef Imtiaz Qureshi, an illustrious member of a lineage of kitchen maestros who’ve served India’s top rulers over the centuries.

Address: East Wing, Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, Kuala Lumpur.

4. Meat The Porkers at Solaris Dutamas

Meat The Porkers proudly professes to be the home of siew yoke biryani its flagship Hyderabadi Dum biryani boasts tender slices of roast pork belly buried in warm rice, showered with crispy crackling, served with raita and gravies. The result: A sensible juggling of grains and meat that remains faithful to the enjoyable essence of biryani while conveying an effective twist to this familiar carb-loading experience.

Address: D1-G3-5, Publika Dutamas, 1, Jalan Dutamas 1, Solaris Dutamas, 50480 Kuala Lumpur.

5. Indian Spices Village in Brickfields
