First Meal At Madam Kwan, 1 Utama

One of the reasons for cancelling my Singapore trip is because I have to go to Kuala Lumpur.... I have booked the Firefly in April, it was the cheapest rate then... but alas last minute, something propped up and my family had to drive down on Sunday.  I was quite worried about the jam but to my delight, going down south was a smooth journey but not the other way round.  Many cars were seen going up north instead...
Hope coming back to Ipoh will be as smooth too!
My first meal after touching down KL....
Met up with Madam Kwan for the first time... 
Must "acknowledge" the Madam Kwan before entering... right? 
hahahaha....
While waiting for the food...
Madam Kwan's special Nasi Lemak...
Fragrant to the fullest....
Their signature fried chicken...
Nasi Briyani with Fried Drumstick
And Rojak as desserts...
A satisfying meal.... 
To burn our calories, we lingered in 1Utama for some time... 
My girl is most happy to do that!

  2. I've read mixed reviews about the place - one very bad one about the outlet in Mid Valley. Always thought it is a HongKong franchise, with a name like that. A friend of mine likes it, said it'ssome kind of nyonya food place. Will try next time I go to KL.

  8. It has been a long time since I ate at Madam Kwan. Their most famous dish is the nasi bojari. Are you sure it is briyani and not bojari in your photo?

    1. I believe it is bojari and not briyani that you ate. The fried chicken rice meal is exactly the same as the nasi bojari I ate last time.

    2. But i thought it is briyani rice? Is it the one with the fried chicken?

      Delete
    3. The name of the dish with fried chicken is nasi bojari. I am not sure whether the rice is cooked in a way that it could be called briyani.

      Delete
    4. In the menu, for nasi bojari the rice is just described as tri coloured rice.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
