Pavilion KL's Granny: Grandmama's Flavour's of Malaysia

I am always in search of great tasting local dishes whenever I travel so having stumbled upon Grandmama's during my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur made my eating spree memorable. Haha eating spree ;)



Grandmama's is tucked at the 6L of Pavilion Mall in Bukit Bintang. I'm not even aware that there are restaurants in that part of the mall. And lucky also because I was feeling quite famished after my whole day seminar. The restaurant looks nice specially with its comfy chairs and relaxed interiors. Feels like I visited someone at home.


The menu has a lot of mouthwatering choices but I opted to get my fave Fried Chicken which is a popular Malaysian dish. I've tasted numerous fried chickens in KL, from street vendors to restaurants and I am still excited to order it.

The dish I ordered is called Nasi Ayam Istimewa. It has fried chicken, buttered fried rice, an egg, a serving of shredded beef cooked in coconut milk (so good!) and prawns in chili sauce and onions.


And guess what? This is one of the meals that I've had since visiting Kuala Lumpur. Just thinking about it makes me drool! Hahaha. The fried chicken has that perfect crispy skin and juicy meat. How do they do that? The buttered fried rice itself was a revelation as well as the beef cooked in coconut milk. I almost didn't touch that because I was full already. Very generous serving portion. And the prawns are delicious in a spicy way.


Can't wait to try the other dishes when I visit KL again. Who wants to join me? My treat! ;)



I also love the restaurant's name- Grandmama's as well as the logo! Kick-ass motorcycle riding granny. Wow!

PS. I'd also like to commend the staff because upon ordering, I decided to go to the nearby loo. Some establishments would've cancelled or waited for me to get back before preparing my order but they didn't. Thumbs up!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
