Grandma’s Restaurant (Nex)
The last time I went Kuala Lumpur, I have tried Madam Kwan’s and totally fell in love with it. The Nasi Lemak, Curry Vegetables, Brinjals and Chendol were so good that I am craving for it every now and then.
So when I got to know that Grandma’s dishes were whipped by a former chef from KL’s Madam Kwan, I went to have my lunch there.
Before I went for lunch, I did my workout in the gym so I told myself that I should eat something lighter, or else the calories I burnt will go to drain. But it was a mistake, because we ended up not ordering the specialties of the restaurant.
I ordered Seafood Hor Fun, it was not bad, had nice wok hei. But I kinda regretted later because I think I can get something similar with a cheaper price at zi char stalls.
The best penang laksa I had in Singapore is definitely Penang Seafood Restaurant at Aljunied and being of big fan of this, I guess there isn’t any other local stalls comparable to Penang Seafood Restaurant.
The broth here is too thin, instead of having shredded fish, we have a few fish slices. The “hae ko” (虾膏) wasn’t enough and for the price we paid, the amount of thick noodles was way too little.
And because we weren’t full, we order a plate of Tahu Goreng to share too. Grandma’s rendition of Tahu Goreng is abit different, instead of having a thick sweet sauce with peanut, they used bright red chilli sauce.
I knew I didn’t do justice to the restaurant, I would still want to give it another chance. I will be back to try the Assam Fish Head, Nasi Lemak and Cendol!
