Ampang Ruz Aladdin Restaurant | Johor Briyani Gam

Last Sunday when I told my sis that we were invited to try Nasi Briyani at Ruz Aladdin in Ampang (Kuala Lumpur), she was teasing us "Are you going to eat Nasi Berani to become braver?". All of us burst into laughter! In Malaysian language, 'Nasi' means 'rice' whilst 'Berani' can be translated as 'brave' or 'bold' which has a similar pronunciation as 'Briyani'.

Interior of Ruz Aladdin - Johor Briyani Gam
Nasi Briyani or Beriani or Biryani is a common foodie term for most Malaysians but little I know about its origin no doubt the good ones are fabulous. Initially I thought Briyani was Malaysian's native food but in fact it was originated from Middle East (Arab States) and made popular in India and Pakistan by Muslim travelers and merchants.
Signatures of Ruz Aladdin
From Wikipedia, Biryani or Briyani is a set of rice-based food with spices, basmati rice that are served with meat, chicken and vegetables. Although there are many variants at different geographical locations, the main ingredients used usually include ghee, peas, beans, cumin, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, coriander, mint leaves, ginger, onions and garlic. The dish is also accompanied with beef, chicken, goat, lamb or shrimp and also served with curry, korma, dal or hard boiled egg.
Complimentary vegetables gravy
At Ruz Aladdin Nasi Briyani Restaurant, there is a special term to order the dish with hard boiled egg. It is called with 'Gam'. I did not ask the restauranteur but now I am wondering why?
Complimentary side dishes - Salad and Crackers
Among the chef's recommendations are 'Briyani Kaki Kambing (Goat Leg)', 'Briyani Ayam Masak Merah (Chicken with Red Gravy)', 'Briyani Udang (Shrimp)' and Briyani Sotong (Squib).

We opted for a few sets from their top of the lines.
Briyani Gam Ayam Goreng (Fried Chicken)
Briyani Gam Ayam Masak Merah (Red Gravy Chicken)
Briyani Gam Kaki Kambing (Goat leg)
Each serving is relatively huge for a petite lady like me (bragging I guessTongue out!) but if you were there with empty stomach, I bet you'd finish it all by yourself.
Drooling...I am hungry!
Located in the heart of Ampang, Ruz Aladdin is usually packed during lunch. Go early or weekend as the crowd is more spread out.

Besides Briyani, Ruz Aladdin also serves Western, Noodles and Arabic food. Thanks to JH and P for recommending this restautant, I would love to go again in future!

I used to patronize a Briyani johor restaurant at Ampang Point business center, which I didn't really care to remember the name. The food was simply marvelous with generous servings. I especially adored the lamb dishes. Is this the one ?
