Always plenty of vegetables – 4 types
Crab and salted fish curries
Crispy Fried Bitter Gourd with curry leaves
Acha Curry House did not only serves the normal fish, chicken and dhall curries but instead, they opted for a more unique approach which includes salted fish, onion, and crab curry, which somehow works splendidly. Ask any customer, they wouldn’t have any regrets. As for me I love the salted fish curry and have yet to try the onion curry.
Another great addition to have with their banana leaf rice is the ikan bilis sambal which gives you a great burst of spice and flavour with just one spoonful, although in a weird way you’ll want even more when sweat starts pouring out of your glands. The fried bitter gourd are also great as they are always crunchy.
Their fried tinggiri fish as well as their mutton maruval also deserve honourable mention.
We finished off with a glass of Iced Moru(buttermilk with spices) which was very refreshing for a warm day.

A typical banana leaf meal consists of white rice served on a yele sapede (banana leaf) with an assortment of three vegetables, pickles, a selection of curry dishes such as meen kari (fish curry), koli kari (chicken curry), dhal (boiled lentils) and papadum (Indian crackers). Accompanying dishes for the banana leaf rice include lamb, fish, chicken and beef dishes; the chicken masala and deep-fried squid is especially good here.
It will usually be crowded no matter what time it is, so waiting for a table is norm. There’s a reason why it’s crowded more often than not and that’s because the food is good!
The best way to enjoy your banana leaf rice is to dispense with any form of utensils and dig in using just your hands. Use only your right hand as the left hand is considered to be unclean and reserved only for bathroom activities. Sometimes I don’t understand why some people still insist on using fork and spoon.

Claypot Seafood Curry Mee
Mee Hoon Kueh
Fried Pork Ribs with Yam
Sri Choon Keng is one of the oldest operating restaurant left in Pandamaran. Had been operating for 32 years since 1978. It become famous as this restaurant is visited by Prime Minister of Malaysia during the Chinese New Year national level open house in Pandamaran back in year 2009.
Been to this restaurant many times already and I like their claypot curry seafood noodles & mee hoon kueh. Another favorite of mine is the fried pork ribs with yam. As usual they also serve most of the common seafood dishes.
