MADAM KWAN’S @ MEGA MALL

Advertisements

If you’re at Mega Mall @ Mid Valley Malaysia, you may have a lot of choices for food. So I decided to give this Madam Kwan’s a try and I was in for some surprise… Click to enlarge pics.

The restaurant is just outside Jusco on level 2 in the centre of the mall... if I can remember clearly...Service Counter
Ambience
Pretty good Penang Char Kway Teow
Super Famous Nasi Lemak - From the left is sambal ikan bilis, cucumber, curry chicken, hard boil egg, and fish floss. I would prefer the ikan bilis to be the crispy ones with peanuts, sambal chilli on the side, sunny side up to replace the hard boil egg. But this is Malaysian style lah, but everything is very tasty.
Looks at the rice... grain by grain... very fragrant of coconut milk.
Achar by the side... not too bad but the ones at Punggol Nasi Lemak (Upp Serangoon) is a lot better.
chunky curry chicken... 2 pieces of super thick gravy curry chicken thigh meat. very nice.
Juicy Chicken Wings! Very nice and juicy when you bite into this mid section.

Rating: 4.5/5. Service not too good. Quite a shame cos they have many branches in KL and food is pretty good.

Taste: Very good. High class Malaysian local cuisine lah… But it’s good.

Portion: Average. Extra rice will cost you… forgot to take a look at the price.

Price: Total abo0ut RM$40+ for 2.

RTE: For the Nasi Lemak and I wanna try the other Nasi dunno whathat uses 3 different kinds of rice.

Location: Mega Mall @ Mid Valley centre wing

TO-RICHO GUO SHI (KWAY CHAP) @ Old Airport Road Hawkers’ Centre

Advertisements

It was my birthday so I decided to have my lunch at this famous kway chap place at Old Kallang Airport Food Centre. Famous from Blanco Court, this stall needs no introduction. Reason why I’m featuring this is because the food is very tasty, they are a lot cheaper than their counterparts like the Macpherson one and the food quality is a lot better. On top of that, the lady taking orders is very friendly! I love Teochews! ;P

Long queue during lunch time... Well,, they are only open during lunch time lor... Be prepared to queue for 15mins, but food will be served shortly after you place your orders
This is th Kway which you will be eating with the dishes below. I can eat like 3 bowls of these.
Spare parts from the pig. Used to be a very cheap delicacy but because of growing demands, the prices are like it is now... Butthis stall does it so well, there is hardly any smell and very very tender.
Braised Pork Leg - Super tender and lean for me... This plate cost only like $4. Love it.
Salted Veg (Chye Buay) - Used to be unwanted also like the spare parts.
Nothing is left behind for the rats... ;P

Rating: 5/5

Taste: Very tasty, very tender, very traditional. Those who have gout should avoid this. Maybe like once a month is fine. 🙂

Portion: Good

Price: Wth 5 bowls of Kway and all the dishes, the bill came up to about $11+ for 2 persons. Very reasonable.

RTE: Many times already. No time to feature only 🙂

翠绿Fried Kway Teow (Beach Road Hawker)

Advertisements

Was a little hungry after my performance at Jurong Point on Sat so I was driving along Beach Road then I turned into the place to check out some good food. I know the claypot rice is famous there but they were not ready yet. So I was on the upper level and walking around and found this pretty famous char kway teow place. I know I’m not suppose to feature famous ones but they are affordable and no pork/lard for my muslim friends!

This stall at #01-91 near the middle staircase, needs no introduction. Too many features… too many rules hanging in front of their stall… Self-service lah, no extra plate lah, no extra chopsticks and spoon lah, extra cockles how much lah, etc… Hence the whole bloody stall front is crowded with a lot of reading crap while you wait in the queue…

I was there at about 4pm hence during that time not many people so I was next in the queue. I sat right in front of the stall as you can see from this pic.

See all the signs of the stall…

So I ordered my $4 plate it came after a 5 mins wait. Their signage claim that they use superior stock to fry their kway teow… hence I have to try it. When my plate of char kway teow was ready, I was asked to stand up and walked over to the stall to pick it up myself even though there were no one else in the queue… for this, I’ll discount the stall a lot on their rating.

Veg on the char kway teow... like the one in Pasir Panjang. Ok portioning only for $4...

This shot is for my cockles friends... 12pcs in the $4 plate...

 

Rating: 4/5 (Would have been 4.5 cos of their poor attitude. Too famous perhaps?)

Taste: Quite good. Not too sweet. Cockles were fresh. Kway Teow was tender and nice. Somehow without pork lard, the taste is not as fragrant as it should be. Will try to feature the other one at Pasir Panjang… I believe that’s original.

Portion: Not very big plate for $4. Sad. After that you might have to order the Goreng Pisang Raja beside it… it’s very nice. 🙂

Price: $3 or $4.

RTE: Maybe if I have nothing else to eat at Beach Road Hawker Centre.

Blk 17 Upp Boon Keng Market

It’s been a while since I’ve been to this old market for some of the good food here. I’ve arranged 2 friends to meet me here before we head on to May Day’s DNA concert in Singapore Indoor Stadium. The place can be accessible by walking from Kallang MRT Station also.

One of the must try here is an old couple’s Penang Char Kway Teow at #01-08. The stall is just right in front of the carpark when you reach the market.

Quite a big plate with whole prawns
damn nice

Rating: 5/5

Taste: If you have tasted the Penang Char Kway Teow in Penang, this is the closest you’ll get in Singapore. It’s damn good I tell you! Not too salty, not too oily, prawns are fresh, kway teow is tender and the fire control is perfect. No cockles for this one.

Portion: Very good for the price!

Price: $2.50 per plate only…

RTE: You bet! 🙂 Old couple no recognition from those commercialised rating programmes… So we must support them lah. 🙂
