At least 3 types of cuisine intersect in Kuala Lumpur: Chinese, Malaysian and Indian. In our turn, we crossed paths with each of them, but the most pleasant culinary experience we had was at the Annalakshmi vegetarian restaurant, located on the ground floor of the “Temple of fine arts” cultural center, a community space that hosts various events specific to Indian arts .
The restaurant is part of the cultural center, being managed by its volunteers.
I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s heaven for vegetarians! Food is served from the menu from Tuesday to Thursday, and from Friday to Sunday there is a buffet in the evening, starting at 6pm, with “all you can eat” type service, for Apr. 18 RYM/person (apr. 20 Ron). Monday is closed.
You are guaranteed to have a culinary treat, especially if you love the aromas and spices specific to Indian cuisine. And if you’re not familiar with them, it’s a great place to get started on Indian food. Not all the dishes served are spicy, so you have plenty to choose from, if you are not a “spicy” fan. There are also dishes close to the European taste, such as salads or various other snacks. Desserts and drinks are also ordered separately, extra-buffet, and their cost is added to the standard price of the buffet. They have low costs, so it’s worth it. And fruit juices are brilliant!
The cultural center “Temple of fine arts” is located in the Little India area, not exactly on the paths usually beaten by tourists in Kuala Lumpur, but it is definitely worth looking for and trying at least once! We were taken here by our friends who live in Kuala Lumpur. And we pass on the recommendation, because we know it’s worth it!
