Occupying a prominent spot in Glasgow’s West End, Banana Leaf serves Malaysia-Chinese Cuisine using only the highest quality ingredients!
Chinese merchants and traders have long been linked to the Malayan Peninsula in the South China Sea. The Chinese brought with them not only their skills, culture ,languages and customs but also the various provincial styles of Chinese cuisines. Chinese Cuisine in Malaysia is varied, but it is generally milder compared to Malay or Indian fare. But thanks to the influence from this multi-ethnic country, Chinese cuisine in Malaysia has taken on a spicier touch, often reinventing classic dishes.
At Banana Leaf, recipes which have been passed down through generations are made with the freshest ingredients. A selection of starters are the perfect introduction to the fare on offer, with favourites such as fried squid rings and salt and chilli tofu cube with peppers and onions. Specialities like venison served on a sizzling plate grounds these flavours in a local context, and the flavoursome rice and noodle creations delight the taste buds. The vegetarian and gluten-free options on offer make it a truly versatile menu so there is something for everyone.
By using traditional method, Banana Leaf’s food is evocative of a long and complex history, with bold flavours which transcend borders and tell their own stories. Try it out for yourself, from the comfort of your own home!
