In tropical Malaysia a simple roof as rain protection is sufficient to run an (outdoor) restaurant. This Indian Street Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur has been around for over 30 years. The specialty here is lamb curry, cooked at home and brought in big pots to the restaurant. At the restaurant location there is also a wok (on the right of the photo) where rice and noodle can be fried on the spot. The bananas and chips hanging from the ceiling are self service and paid by item.
