Nasi Briyani @ Super Bariani Gam, Batu Pahat, Johor



Since we were in Batu Pahat on Saturday, Nasi Briyani or Nasi Bariani as how the locals spell it was the obvious choice. It's been ages since I visited Batu Pahat hence I was totally lost. Only vague memories I had was my dad taking us to eat at a place near the hospital. Luckily, the Rotarian whom we earlier met lead us to this particular place near their office. His first suggestion was Power Bariani which is further away but he took us to this one since it would have been a long journey with traffic.

This place has been featured by the local cuisine show, Jalan Jalan Cari Makan as they received a plaque from them which is proudly displayed in the restaurant. After chatting with them, I found out they're somewhat related to the Bariani Power House located in Section 13, Shah Alam which we had at Subang Jaya's Ramadan Bazaar. No wonder the food looked similar as they use large steamers on slow fire to keep the rice warm, coloured rice for decoration and a topping of raisins.



I must admit my tastebuds this time was biased as I was super hungry and this was my first proper meal of the day. Meals during the whole day was just half boiled eggs, coffee and kaya toast which we had at Lenga town. However it tasted really good to our hungry tummies. The lamb which I had was tender and fragrant with spices. The rice I felt was not as fluffy and fragrant compared to the nasi briyani sold at the Taman Tun Dr Ismail Ramadan Bazaar. Maybe it could be because it was cooked much earlier during the day since they have been opened for the whole day.

Since there was such a big group of us eating there, we helped the restaurant finish up their food for the day. Thanks to the Buaya group as they picked up the tab for the meal. If you wish to try their food, there are plans to open up another outlet in Johor Bahru. Alternatively head to their friend's place in Section 13, Shah Alam which serves the same type of Nasi Beriani using a similar recipe.

Never tried Super Briani before. Never bought it from the S.Jaya Pasar Ramadan. But pernah try the one from JM Briyani. The shop in S.Jaya was just behind our Malaysian home in Subang jaya. Sure miss all the good food now... Bilalah boleh balik Malaysia.

Claude-Olivier - it's a popular dish in Msia as you get it everywhere.

sher - the lamb was really nice and tender.

flower - have tried JM Bariani too and it's good. We usually eat that whenever we visit Tesco Shah Alam as they have a branch there.

meiyen - sorry we didn't have long to chat that nite, guess we can organise something else another day.

you are very lucky indeed. I was there two weeks ago, and I was looking for Beriani Power in Taman Sago in Batu Pahat. I found the place after 45 minutes only to find out that it was closed. Apparently they are not open for dinner.

Have you tried Bangi's Briyani Gam place.. I recommend !!

bernsy - I read abt the Bangi one from another friend's blog. Heard it's worth a trip down there.

the colour in the rice derives from Saffron, kind of 'luxury' spice. And it is not mainly meant for deco but for the taste and benefits.

rush murad - thxs for the tip. Saffron is pricey stuff as I read abt how they farm it.

I like the one at Peserai. As described in this blog

Saya masih belum mencuba nasi beriyani gam di Batu Pahat. Nampaknya sedap. Lawati blog saya: Malaysian Food Blog

I’ve just eaten here today. I prefer the one here, and I’m declaring it the best beriyani in the whole wide world.

Md Shah’s is really really good too, but it’s too overpowering without any acar.

I think the rice being less fluffy is a characteristic of beriyani gam.

nampak sedaaap sangat la nasi dgn daging kambing?...terliur.
Ada satu restoran beriani Johor di Ampang Point KL yg saya biasa kunjung. Bes giler lauk dia terutama gulai kambing. Sekali hidang banyak pulak tu.

Uolzz tak mau bukak cawangan di Perak ke?? Ipoh, Taiping, Lumut. Come to Sunway City, Mdn Gopeng, Greentown business Center in Ipoh please. :O
