Madam Kwan's, KLCC

I've always wanted to try Madam Kwans but never got the chance to do so until recently. Madam Kwan's originally started out as Sakura in Jalan Imbi. A place which I have fond memories of. So it was nostalgia that brought me and ST to Madam Kwan's outlet in KLCC for lunch one day.

It was a Saturday afternoon when we were there and the place was packed to the brim. Luckily it wasn't too long before we got our seats. On my mind the must order item is the Nasi Lemak so we ordered that. The other dish we ordered was the Curry Laksa. We didn't have to wait long for the dishes to arrive.

Curry Laksa (RM12.30)

The Curry Laksa was thick and all "santan-ny" but it was far from fragrant and aromatic. The sambal belacan was quite flat as well.

Their signature Nasi Lemak (RM14.20)

Oh man what a disaster the Nasi Lemak turned out to be. Their rice tasted more like normal white rice. The chicken curry was as so-so. The sambal was lousy. I'm starting to wonder why people like Madam Kwan's. The road side stall near my house serves better nasi lemak than this and it's about 4 to 5 times cheaper.

Ice Campur (RM6.50) and Cendol (RM5.80)

There's really nothing much to say about these two drinks. They're not particularly good.

Maybe I was too harsh on Madam Kwan's. Lot's of people seem to love them. Personally if I go somewhere that charges that much for Nasi Lemak it had better be extraordinary. Otherwise what's the point? I don't think I will ever go back to Madam Kwan's. They're just not worth the money. Plus the waiters at the KLCC branch are quite stuck up.

ST just mentioned that one of her colleagues said this blog has become a baby blog. That's not exactly true but here's a cute picture of Kit Yi taken 2 days ago. She's 3 months old now and more fun to play with than before :)

KFC Con Job: The Triple XL Burger

I need to learn to stop trusting advertisements from KFC.

Coming in at 7 inches the KFC Triple XL burger certainly looks the part. The sad part is when you open it up and you realise you should have ordered the Snack Plate instead.


It's pathethic. What we get inside is basically the same piece of meat we get in a Zinger burger only flatter and split into two. It taste much like the Zinger burger too. For Flying Spaghetti Monster's sake, don't get this. Save your money.

Short and Quick: Beard Papa has Green Tea Puffs!

Spotted a new flavour from Beard Papa at Pavillion. Green Tea cream puffs in addition to the vanilla and chocolate ones. RM18.00 for 2 vanilla, 2 chocolate and 2 green tea puffs in an outdated Christmas themed box. Green tea not that great. Original flavours better :)

Check out my old but still relevant review of Beard Papa's.
