Banana Leaf

There are many special theme restaurants in Canton. Banana Leaf is one of them, which is focus on Southeast Asia food. Actually it’s my fist time to come to Banana Leaf, and Banana Leaf really gave me a surprise. 😆

Indian, Filipino, Vietnam, Thailand… there are too many different kinds of food waiting for us~ I hope I can try all of them at one time. But with my poor wallet, we’d better keep our heads clear. After a careful discussion, we made our order. Yep, a mix style feast~ Vietnam Big Shrimp with Plum Juice, Indian Durian chapatis, Meat slice Coconut Juice(I don’t know it belongs to which country style, but really tasty~), and Chinese broccoli. Make your mouth water, isn’t it? 😛

I think the most attractive of Banana Leaf isn’t only these fascinating food, but also the special Southeast nation ambience. The waiters, waitresses and cooks are very passionate and humorous. Ever the security guard who comes from Philippines often amuse the costumer such as playing a little magic show.

There is a special group of people playing music and dancing from here and there in restaurant. Sometime they would sing their nations’ music and dance, and sometimes the English songs, even Chinese songs 😆 Wherever they go, the laugh and applause would come along. Here is a small video clip that shot by my cell phone. Though it isn’t very clear and the point of view is not good, the singers and dancers really gave us a very good impression.

    Good show, isn’t it?!
    they did make us happy though they are not professional.
    But do you know why is it called Banana Leaf without any dishes relate to banana?

    The banana leaf is the “plate” of choice for auspicious occasions such as weddings and meals with special guests in South India. After washing their hands (there are no utensils provided unless you ask!), people sit on benches set up under a circus-style tent known as a shamiana that provides shade from the hot sun at outdoor weddings such as ours. Once the guests are seated, an assembly line of servers will go from guest to guest, placing dish after dish on each banana leaf. Typical fare will include a snack such as the traditional vada (a traditional South Indian lentil-based donut, much like falafel), a mound of steaming white rice, a prepared rice dish such as a biriyani, chapathi, dal (split yellow lentils), rasam (a clear tomato broth), sambhar (a lentil and vegetable stew), a crispy appalam (which some of you may know as papad), a number of different vegetable dishes, raita (yogurt with vegetables), pickles and and several sweets. Everything is eaten directly off of the leaf with the right hand, which can be quite tricky for the banana leaf novice!
