The Banana Leaf Apolo @ Little India

Wil Sen didn't enroll in Student Exchange Programme in India just to gain insights into foreign cultures and unforgettable overseas experience, he's gonna be the ambassador of the well-known Indian cuisine to all of us. :)

And so after church with him and Emilia, he suggested to have lunch in The Banana Leaf Apolo in Little India.

Papadums were served as appetizer while waiting for the dishes to come.

South Indian Vegetarian Meals (Rasam, curd, sambal, vegetable korma, karai gravy, pickles) @ $8.00

Out of all these only the potatoes on the left favored my taste bud.
The rest... I found them hard to be eaten with usual expression - they just tasted weird to me, even for the fish curry.

Apolo Chicken Masala (on the right) @ $5.00

Briyani Rice with Vegetables @ $3.50

Plain Rice with Vegetables @ $3.00

Gobi Manchurian (Fried cauliflower sauteed with oriental spices) @ $9.00

I honestly don't think I'm cut out to rate the food because apparently my taste bud and stomach aren't designed for Indian cuisine. However Gobi Manchurian was awesome for me, although my tongue couldn't actually take the spiciness. Ya I know I'm a rare Penangite with low spiciness tolerance.

Emilia and Wil Sen seemed to have a sensational lunch. So if you're into Indian cuisine, try it out, and there're a lot more genuine dishes in the menu that we didn't order.

Plus, papadums and water are free and refillable.
