Moms Trip – Day 1 – Lunch at Kanna in Menjalara

Looks like I might have a little time now to document my journeys around KL and Cambodia recently, so here is number 1 of the series, the first day, Lunch at Kanna in Bandar Menjalara, man I LOVE Kanna.

I always used to trek down to SS2 to eat there, but this one is closer, is just as nice and seems cheaper, I have mentioned Kanna in SS2 before, but didn’t have many pictures.

Kanna Menjalara

It’s on the opposite corner of the famous 31 styles of crab restaurant.

To get there turn in to Bandar Menjalara from the LDP, straight to the roundabout, take 12 o’clock (Straight ahead) until you reach a second roundabout then take 12 o’clock (Straight ahead) again. When you see a right hand turn with a weird building on the corner, take it! Keep going straight past the houses and look out on your left, you should see Kanna there.

Hmm lot’s of lovely food.

Banana Leaf Rice

Tasty curry (not too spicy for my Mom either).

Kanna Curry

The best fried chicken in the world evar.

Kanna Fried Chicken

Make sure you remember to ask them to chop it before they fry it, so it gets permeated with the flavouring.

And of course my favourite thing at Kanna the sotong, or squid.

Kanna Squid

Of course we polished off everything.

Empty Plates

And I have to say it was indeed fantastic.

My Mom of course loved the experience (Eating with your hands) and the wonderful food, a good first lunch for her.

    Hi Mrs. Shaolin Tiger!

    I gotta agree, your mum does look awfully young. You almost look old enough to be her dad!

    Your mom looks really young, like in her late 40s or something.

    You have no idea just how depressing a post like this can be for a transplanted Malaysian with NO access to authentic Malaysian food.

    I’ve just had a ready meal of chilli and wedges from Tesco for dinner. I will now weep softly into my apple.

    Go easy on the spicy, oily foods and coconut water for the first few days. Don’t want Mum to have the runs, innit?! 😉

    Gosh! Kannas looks just great….

    Firstly Esq,

    Welcome to Malaysia mom.

    Should try Nellis’s too the Nasi Goreng is superb but no wine on the menu or Fish Head Kari at Kampong Pandan.Price is reasonable for average Malaysian.OK mom has a good rest,
    Lucky mum, escape the cold winter.I miss winter too.

    Tea, anytime on me Esq.
