Dinning at Madam Kwan's

Kuala Lumpur has tons of many interesting food choices and one of the famous ones that is well-loved by the locals and tourists is Madam Kwan's.

I have my list of food places to visit in KL but this restaurant seem to have escaped my radar. Luckily, I, along with my daughter got invited to join a dinner hosted by a friend's cousin. We all agreed to meet at Madam Kwan's in Suria KLCC.



After a quick research, I got excited at the prospect of dining at Madam Kwan's. I've been craving for some beef rendang since arriving in KL so that became an inspiration.


Our host ordered for us and chose Malaysian favorites.

Malaysian Satay, mixed 21.90 MYR. This is beef and chicken satays which tasted very flavorful of peanut and curry and other spices. It also comes with a serving of steamed broken rice squares which is similar to our puto and pineapples.


KangKong, 18.90 MYR. Perfect pair for meat dishes as it balances out the taste. This is a bit spicy and will make you want to eat more rice.


Cantonese Style Noodles, 23.90 MYR. Malaysian cuisine is as diverse as ours and has many influences. However, Madam Kwan's stays true when it comes to serving Cantonese Style Noodles. It's not something I would've have ordered in KL but it is very delicious.


Nasi Lemak, 21.90 MYR. This is another popular and a must-eat dish when one is visiting KL and Malaysia. There are different ways of cooking Nasi Lemak and I've only tasted it twice so I really can't compare. But Madam Kwan's Nasi Lemak has that burst of wonderful flavors and aroma that one would just happily dig in and enjoy the food.


Beef Rendang, 18.90 MYR. This is my favorite! Not because I was craving for it but it's really, really good even if I am beginning to sweat from the spiciness. What I love about this dish is that it must've been cooked in coconut milk and other spices and that made it very tender and flavorful. Best paired with a serving of piping hot rice. ;)


Here's a picture of our group before dinner was served. And we attacked it with gusto! Thank you Rommel for the dinner treat. :)



Overall, we are all happy with the dinner at Madam Kwan's. Each dish was carefully presented, and the service was also superb. Thank you also to the restaurant staff for allowing us to stay even past closing time since we arrived late.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.
