After spending a morning combing the shopping centres at Suria KLCC with time to for coffee at Starbucks on the ground floor, we regrouped on Level 4 for lunch at Madam Kwan’s Restaurant which specializes in local Malaysian favourites and traditional Malaysian food.

Nasi Bojari is from Indonesia where the rice is meant for royalty, and is layered red, yellow and white. “We can’t do it here,” said Madam Kwan. So she did the next best thing — frying the rice with bits of chicken, garlic and dried prawns and lightly tinging the rice with red, and yellow from turmeric. “It’s rice for royalty,” said Kwan, which is why the Indonesians who come to dine have not had it before. There little bursts of flavours in the rice from the ingredients in it. — NST
Nasi Bojari — a Madam Kwan signature dish that comes with perfectly blended spices of coloured rice, assam prawns, shredded beef or chicken rendang , hard boiled egg, slices of tomato and cucumber and if that is not enough there is a huge fried chicken thigh.
Aromatic Ipoh Seafood Char Kway Teow. Had I not gone for the signature Nasi Lemak this would have been my first pick seeing how I love all manners of fried Kway Teow including wet ones.
Famous Nasi Lemak with sambal ikan bilis, cucumber, curry chicken, hard boil egg (not visible in this pic), fish floss and achar on a separate dish.
Love the way the Madam Kwan's business cards are stacked. I wonder if this is arranged with a machine or manually by hand. I'd be very nervous handling the container with this many cards in my hands.
