[Penang] Banana Leaf Lunch at Sri Ananda Bahwan, Little India

My fave Indian eatery among the many one finds on the island. Sri Ananda Bahwan started in Butterworth, but has grown into a chain spanning Penang (4 outlets each in Province Wellesley and Penang island), Kedah, Ipoh, KL and even Chennai, India. This outlet in Penang Street, Little India, is my fave spot.

  1. South Indian-style chicken curry:

  2. Spiced fried fish steaks:

  3. Crisp-fried battered bitter-gourd chips:

  4. Scenes from Si Ananda Bahwan restaurant:

  5. Sweets galore at Sri Ananda Bahwan:

  6. Penang’s smallish but bustling Little India district has an authentic South Indian/Tamil feel to it:

“Food is a pretty good prism through which to view humanity.”
