Briyani is an Iran-derived recipe of rice with spices and occasionally with vegetable, meat, fish, lamb, poultry and etc. Brought by merchants and traders to South Asia, it has grown in varieties, elaborations and flavors for generations now in various countries.
Hence, no surprise, you may commonly find Briyani as one of the rice options offered at Nasi Campur / Nasi Kandar places. However, those though common to most, is not exactly the real thing.
The name says it all, Tetra House of Briyani serves more than a dozen of Briyani Rice flavors and occasionally, one or two daily Briyani Specials. Apart from that, dishes like the Apam, White Rice with Traditional Dish Options were also available. Not forgetting some local favorites like Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng and many more.
Located along Jalan Batu Nilam 4a, Bukit Tinggi Klang, in a shop lot that looks like any other, the place isn’t anything to shout about. That’s till you walk in. An Apam making counter over on the right, next to the cashier counter, and right next to that, is two notice boards. Regularly updated, one of the board will constantly have new meaningful ‘Wise Sayings’ about Life and it’s value, while the other board would show their Daily Specials, which is often the attention of many.
Friendly staffs and patiently explained their menu to us. However, we waited quite long for our Briyani to be served. Maybe because it needs long time to prepare, am not too sure.
I have ordered Chicken Briyani (RM11). A generous portion of rice and chicken cooked in Kurma sauce. Served together with crispy poppadoms, dhal and the sourish diced vege in yogurt.
Steven ordered their daily special Briyani – Tetra Chicken Briyani (RM11). The chicken cooked in Tetra Signature sauce gave the kick. Love it!
