Mohd Shah’s Baryani is so famous that people from all over Malaysia will stop over to eat.
(Before I go on, I realise that the spelling Baryani, Bariani, Beryani, Beriyani is all different in all the different photos! I guess they can’t determine which is the spelling they want, so they just hamtam everything lah. Each signboard put one different spelling. haha….)
You all should know by now, mum and I have this hobby of going around eating and tasting food. Adik from UK balik, of course we bring her to eat Nasi Baryani lah.
The stall is founded by owner Haji Mohd Esa’s father, Mohd Shah in 1986.
Anyway, the stall is located at Kompleks Niaga Benteng Peserai. It’s right opposite the Putra Specialist Hospital (prev known as Southern Hospital). From town, cross the bridge over the Batu Pahat river.
After driving in, you would see this signboard. How to miss? Even if you don’t know which stall it is, take a seat, then look where everyone goes. It is that stall.
Anyway, at the entrance you will see this sign. (ey, people leh, no queue ah?)
Or people queuing like this. (macam ini baru betul kan?)
The moment you walk into this simple stall, you will see pots and pots of mutton and chicken and of course the Nasi Baryani.
This pot is almost empty.
When the guy saw that I was taking photo, he said, take this pot instead. Wah. another huge pot of kambing.
How much does it cost, you will ask?
This is how it looks when the guy scoops it. The meat below, and the rice over it.
Of course they are also known for their pickle / Acar Buah. It’s tasty I tell you. This is what I ate. Nasi Baryani Kambing with a bottle of Jeruk.
The drinks next door, and the nasi you pay at the counter just inside this shop. So, you can order your drinks next door first, then order the food here, then pay together. Or pay first and then go next door. It’s all the same….
