The food at Nasi and Mee touches upon known and slightly unusual Southeast Asian dishes. There is a strong Malaysian influence, as the owner is a fourth-generation Malaysian. Some of the best things to try here are the rendang curry with roti jalla (a pancake made with flour, eggs and coconut milk), the wok-fried sambal okra and prawns, the chicken and prawn pad Thai (which is absolutely delicious), and laksa curry and jasmine rice. The rendang, which is available in beef and chicken, is not atypical to what you would get in the city. The curry is drier, and the spice levels are not overpowering – delicious!
Pan Asian cuisine is turning a new leaf by becoming more approachable to the diners. It has created a huge fan base for itself since it has become more widely known to the entire world for its aromatic depth and natural refreshing ingredients. The Pan Asian world has moved beyond Chinese fare and has stretched to include other fascinating cultures as well. The best example of this is one of Bengaluru’s most popular restaurant, ‘Nasi & Mee’. This charming ‘Asian canteen’, as they define themselves, is a great place for friends to catch up over lip-smacking food and cheerful joyous ambience. The restaurant is part of Koramangala circuit and is surrounded by a pack of trendy upmarket eateries similar to itself. The food is superb here so go at your leisure and take your time with it.
