Home Food Reviews Kafe Beriani Gam Putra

As mentioned in my previous post, rif took me to the famous Kafe Beriani Gam Putra. It took a few wrong turns and a phone call before we finally found the place. The place is quite dusty due to its location next to the highway. It was also very hot that day, so we ate really quick. I hate sweating like a pig when I’m not working out. o_0One has to line up and select the Beriani Gam from the giant pots aligned in a row. They offer a variety of berianis including beriani kuda (horse). The rice is wrapped with a muslin cloth and steamed together with the curry. We decided to share the Beriani Ayam Kampung, which I was told is one of their best sellers.Despite being steamed, the rice did not clump together. The spices from the curry add flavour and aroma to the rice, and the steaming process makes the rice slightly sticky and creamy. A set comes with acar, some papadam and a bowl of dalcar. The gravy was thick, sweetish, spicy and not overly oily. The chicken, slow-cooked in gravy, was tender and had a good aroma of spices. It tasted delectable with the rice. (I got a whole chicken leg, but it got buried under the pile of rice =P) Made with bits of lamb fat, the dalcar was seriously good stuff. My bowl had a nice piece of fat, which was buttery and full of flavour. Absolutely divine! I wanted to help myself to another bowl, but decided against it as I was terribly stuffed (I had a plate of beriani rice in my tummy already). T_T

The bill came up to RM16 – RM14 for the Beriani Ayam Kampung and RM2 for limau ais. Super expensive, considering it’s just a roadside stall. o_0 Oh well, at least I got my beriani gam and it was damn satisfying!

Ambiance: 1/10
Price: 4/10
Food: 8/10 (halal)
Verdict: Delectable beriani gam, not so pocket-friendly prices.

Been here once on the way back from Cyberjaya, and I enjoyed it thoroughly! But after this meal, I became strangely, rapidly averse to ghee, and now, I can no longer take biryani. Don’t understand why!

PureGlutton April 25, 2009 - 6:39 am

Have no idea where this is, lol! But rather expensive hoh…ya, the kuda got me stumped for a while too!

CWF April 25, 2009 - 1:10 pm

Didn’t know such place exist when it is so near to my uni.. lol… the “Kuda” surprised me..perhaps they might had sourced them from the Equine Centre from my uni which is nearby.. :P

Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy April 25, 2009 - 2:04 pm

Hey BB; great meeting you today. Am sorry I couldn’t stay and chat for longer. Had my baking class to get to. You take care of yourself. And hope to see you soon.

Sapuche April 25, 2009 - 5:54 pm

Wow, sounds like an interesting roadside stall (though I could do without the dust; you always have to cover your food when a big truck roars by). I’m curious about the beriani kuda, and also the muslin cloth steaming technique. And look at that dalcar! I’m crying with envy! Waa!

Bangsar-bAbE April 25, 2009 - 6:50 pm

Sapuche – Haha…we don’t need dust coating for the rice! More reason for you to visit KL!! =D

Nigel – It was really nice meeting you and Allan too! Yes, hope to see you soon! ;)

CWF – It’s quite hidden, so you have too lookout for the signboard on the highway.

Waaa….take from the Equine Park?? Don’t think so lar! *_*

PureGlutton – Yalor.. really expensive! Hehe…I wonder if it’s tough to eat! =P

Timothy Low April 26, 2009 - 2:12 am

You seem to cover a lot of area in Bangi. You work around there?

Bangsar-bAbE April 26, 2009 - 9:08 am

No lar…so happened I went to both the beriani places in one day!

ling239 April 27, 2009 - 2:35 pm

Bangsar-bAbE April 27, 2009 - 6:41 pm
