Indian Vegetarian @ Hare Krsna, Brickfields, KL

Some days when my feet get itchy, I wander around unfamiliar places to search for good food. During one of my jaunts to Brickfields, I found this great Indian vegetarian place situated in a lane off the famous restaurant New Lay Sin along Jalan Tun Sambanthan. This small lane houses quite a few Indian places but Hare Krsna was the one which everyone made a beeline for.

After tasting the food, I could understand why people were packing this place. It was just simple Indian vegetables cooked in curries but everything tasted so good. Set up like and economy rice place, you pick and choose three vegetables for your metal platter to eat with rice plus pappadums and it only costs RM3.50. They had a selection of curries - bittergourd, deep fried lotus root and my favourite, their home made vegetarian kofta. If you want extra kick to your food, add their mango pickles which you can find at the table.

On Fridays, you get free Payasam for dessert. I first ate this when I visited Annalaksmi and loved this luscious dessert ever since. It's filled with sago pearls, slivered cashew nuts, raisins and lentils. They also add turmeric powder to the dessert to give it a sunshine yellow appearance.

The dessert looks yummy but it's kind of scarily bright!

Hmmm. To think that I've been in Brickfields for over 10 years and I've never been there. Food looks good. :-) I'm a big fan of payasam too.

I used to go to Paradise Hotel for a buffet vegetarian lunch. I think I paid RM15.00 per pax. I wonder if it is still available. The hotel is along the main road in Brickfields, quite near the traffic lights. Quite an interesting spread.

J - lots of turmeric powder which is good for us.

lyrical lemongrass - yeah, Brickfields has so many nooks and crannys esp at the back streets.

strozze - hope you will try it.

foodcrazee - work must be busy!

bayibhyap - I did see a hotel near Seetarams but can't remember the name. Maybe that's Paradise Hotel. Will go check it out one day.
