Madam Kwan’s – VivoCity

17/8/2013 – Originally an outlet in Kuala Lumpur, Madam Kwan’s has now came to Singapore! Me and X decided to visit this place after 2 months of its opening (to avoid the crowd).

The Nasi Lemak ($13.90++) is one of the signature dishes. The coconut rice was very aromatic, the chicken curry, ikan bilis and acar were full in taste. The quantity was somewhat lacking though.

The Nasi Bojari ($18.90++), also one of the signature dishes, was what I preferred over the Nasi Lemak. The rice tasted great, the chicken was tender, the assam prawns were spicy enough and the beef rendang was great. The quantity was enough as well.

The Cold Lemon Tea ($3.50++) tasted refreshing. Contrary to other places, this place separates the sugar syrup so that you can decide how sweet you want your drink to be.

The Black & White ($3.50++), which is basically soya bean drink with grass jelly. The sugar syrup is given for this too.

The Banana Fritters with Ice Cream ($8.90++) is a refreshing dessert to end off with. The banana fritters were not crispy, but sweet and soft to chew on when accompanied with the vanilla ice cream.

A place to consider if you want to avoid the crowd around the area (though I would rather go to the one at Kuala Lumpur because of the price difference).
