Madam Kwan's isn't a new restaurant.
It's not been refurbished neither has it been taken over by new management. Daniel still works there and the decor, while contemporary, is still very current and aging really well.
I'm reminded of Coliseum every time I come in here. But it's Coliseum if it had been refurbished.
The food is honest. The prices still good and it's dishes we grew up with. Exotic local food or being different is not the point.
Allan had Nasi Lemak with beef. You have to ask for this one. It defaults to chicken curry otherwise. And you MAY have to have a word with the manager to make it a special request.
I had Chicken Rice. Given that I now feel 10 sizes too big for my spirit I thought it was time to be a bit more disciplined with myself. But instead of guilting myself into not eating, I try and keep it as casual as possible. More of eating habits in a later post.
I was quite proud of myself. 1/4 cup of rice and the skin of the chicken all stripped off. And when I finished it, along with the cucumber and large shitake mushrooms, I found I was actually full.
And it was really, really yummy!
So all in all still a good value proposition.
