Ricksha Sources Majority Of Its Ingredients Fresh From Local Farmers
Seafood from Kuala Selangor and vegetables from Cameron Highlands – Ricksha only gets ingredients fresh directly from dependable suppliers. For example, their jumbo prawns offered here are wild caught and not farmed!
The Banana Leaf Rice set comes with a selection of four vegetables, and nine types of curries such as Chicken, Mutton, Fish, Prawn and other Vegetarian curries. Now, here are some dishes that you must try with your meal!
You can’t go wrong with Fried Chicken and Banana Leaf Rice! Their version is marinated with fragrant masala spices and deep fried, then chopped into pieces and fried again. Another staple dish is the Mutton Varuval that’s spicy, aromatic and tender to the bite.
When it comes to seafood dishes, try out their signature fried shrimp dish called Wild Caught Jumbo Iraal Pakora. Using the same huge prawns shown above, it is diced and deep fried with spices like Kashmiri chilli, curry leaves and more.
