Those who have been to Kuala Lumpur will know this famous Malaysian food chain of restaurant called Madam Kwan, which serves excellent Nasi Lemak and other Malaysian dishes from all the different races.
According to sources, the former chef of Madam Kwan has packed his bag and came to Singapore to open a similar concept restaurant, named Grandma's. Although they are famous for their Nasi Lemak, we decided to try something different today.
We love how generous they are in giving us not 1, but 2 bottles of tap water. It's a drink all you can feast! If only all restaurants can learn from them.
I like the thick gravy from the Claypot Tofu (S$8.90), especially when mixed with white rice. The tofu was not the usual circular egg tofu, but a softer silken square tofu which has been fried and stewed with seafood and meat.
White Rice (S$1.50 per person)
Special recommendation for their Beef Rendang (S$9.90). The rendang is not too spicy, and my tongue tells me that there are lot's of spices in this dish. The beef was really tender and not too dry.
Had this Dumpling Soup (S$10.90). There were only a few dumplings inside the soup, and so we won't recommend ordering this.
We like the Chendol (S$3.90) and Bubur Cha Cha (S$3.90), all served cold. Though the chendol was good, but the red bean was of inferior quality. My opinion is that so far, the Penang Cafe opposite of Novena Church serves the best version of Malaysian chendol.
