Debate rages on the Underwood Hills Nextdoor about the best neighborhood takeout. We’re a Malaya household. This is partly because Malaya is a very solid, consistent restaurant that offers some intense and flavorful Malaysian and Thai food in addition to Chinese-American classics. But, it’s also because that’s where we first ordered from when we moved to the neighborhood.
The Rama curry is so good because it’s well-rounded, with spice, sweetness and a smooth, full-bodied texture that comes from coconut cream. It is a simple pleasure, and even though it may not be super healthy, it feels like it isn’t too bad for you, because it incorporates spinach and lean chicken.
