the good ones are fabulous. At first, I thought Briyani was a Malaysian's native food but in fact it was originated from Middle East (Arab States) and made popular in India and Pakistan by Muslim travelers and merchants.
From Wikipedia, Biryani or Briyani is a set of rice-based food with spices, typically basmati rice that are served
with meat, chicken and vegetables. Although there are many variants at different geographical locations, the main ingredients used usually include ghee, peas, beans, cumin, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, coriander, mint leaves, ginger, onions and garlic. The dish is also accompanied with beef, chicken, goat, lamb or shrimp and also served with curry, korma, dal or hard boiled egg.
At Ruz Aladdin Nasi Briyani Restaurant, there is a special term to order the dish with a hard boiled egg. It is
called with 'Gam'. I did not ask the restauranteur but now I am wondering why?
Among the chef's recommendations are 'Briyani Kaki Kambing (Lamb Shank)', 'Briyani Ayam Masak Merah (Chicken with Red Gravy)', 'Briyani Udang (Shrimp)' and Briyani Sotong (Squib).
We opted for a few sets from the chef's recommendation.
Their serving is generous, considered huge for an Asian lady but if you were there holding an empty stomach, I bet you'd finish it all by yourself.
Located in the heart of Ampang, this restaurant reminds me of a bubbly friend who is no longer on this earth. She suggested that we met at this restaurant for a farewell lunch before we left for TX. Never expected that was our last lunch together. I still remembered she told us that Ruz Aladdin is usually packed during lunch. Go early or visit on weekend as the crowd is more spread out. Besides Briyani, Ruz Aladdin also serves Western, Noodles and Arabic food.
