Last weekend, after a failed trip to Kanna Curry House (it was closed for Thaipusam), we ended up at Madam Kwan's. It's been quite a while since I have eaten there and my first time at their Mid Valley Megamall outlet. Madam Kwan originally started out as Sakura Restaurant along Jalan Imbi which was famous for their Nasi Lemak and Curry or Assam Fish Head. I have fond memories of eating there for special family treats as I loved their nasi lemak.
A few years back, they rebranded and opened new outlets under the name of Madam Kwan's which offered old favourites from the Sakura menu plus new ones like the ever famous Nasi Bojari. What stood out with these restaurants were their interior designs as they were all done up in ultra modern contemporary and clean lines design. Suddenly, it was hip and happening again to eat Nasi Lemak. Their first outlet in Bangsar did roaring business among the expatriates and everyone hangs out there. What I love about all their outlets is their speedy gonzales service. Once you order, food is delivered to you pronto. Not only is their kitchen well run, the service within their restaurant is also fantastic as the waitress will be topping up your ice water all the time.
KS had his usual Char Kuay Teow(RM13.30++) which came so fast as it was the first dish to arrive. Didn't manage to ask him whether it was nice but he polished it quite quickly. I did manage to get the low down on the myth regarding BMWs which are reputed to "bring more women" to their drivers. Sadly, he busted the myth as he claims he has not managed to strike lucky with his latest acquisition.
G had the chicken and mushroom rice (RM13.90++) which looks great. He was on hand to deliver wedding invitations so we now have a road trip to savour Ipoh delights early March.
Splashie Boy had the chicken mushroom with noodles (RM12.60++) which he liked. Essentially the same as the rice, it comes with flaked chicken and chinese mushrooms.
I always have either Nasi Bojari or Nasi Lemak here. The Nasi Bojari(RM19++) is huge as it comes with a fried chicken maryland, assam prawns and in my case, curry chicken. Usually it comes with beef rendang but I prefer it with chicken curry which I always replace. I love their assam prawns as they're crunchy and full of flavours. The chicken is nicely fried and juicy while thei curry chicken is nice and creamy with the coconut milk.
Before you leave, don't forget to take their calling card which is in the shape of Madam Kwan's image holding her famous dish. To read more about Madam Kwan and to see her real image, click here for the Goodbites article.
