No quotidian rite in K.L. is as instantly satisfying on so many levels — social, culinary, tactile — as digging with one's hands into all-you-can-slurp heapings of rice, dal and curried whatever, offered at the many Tamil establishments trademarked by using fans of banana leaf in place of plates. Most tasty and typical is Raju's Restaurant, tel: (60-3) 7956 1361, in the satellite town of Petaling Jaya, where the flakiest roti canai flatbreads are eagerly gobbled in a tree-shaded outdoor lot mornings and lunch.
