Masala Wheels @ Petaling Jaya

Masala Wheels started as a food truck that sold South Indian & Sri Lankan specialities in the city while also offering free meals to the homeless. This year, it launched a full-fledged eatery in one of PJ's old residential neighbourhoods, dishing out banana leaf rice on weekdays, home-cooked temptations by a Sri Lankan matriarch Saturdays, & earthen pot biryani Sundays.

A basic banana leaf rice set that costs RM8 is more than sufficient to satiate cravings for curry-soaked grains & tender spiced vegetables. After adding substantial portions of crab, mutton varuval, & crispy fried chicken & bitter gourd, the bill should clock in at RM30. The food is capably prepared, conveying easy-to-recommend flavours that are pleasantly mild & mellow.
