It was another evening at Madam Kwan's. Yes, my partner and I have revisited a few times.
On one of our visits I gave the Nasi Bojari another chance and may I say that I was so glad I did. Now I understand the allure of Madam Kwan's signature dish. A vast improvement to the one I had earlier.
While waiting for our food, my partner and I had another debate on the rose. Real or fake? So the poor rose was molested (petals and leaves rubbed) and yet we could not tell. So my partner asked me to check the stem and yes, there were thorns, so this had to be real. Haiz...like got nothing better to do.
My partner could not decide what to eat, so he settled for the fried rice (which he had before). I tasted a bit and it was very good but a little salty. I love the smokey aroma which I can never replicate at home.
There were sliced chilies in the fried rice and he painstakingly did this before eating.
My Char Koay Teow did not arrive until 10 minutes later. But it was worth the wait.
This to me was excellent. They were very generous with the prawns too and it was a substantial serving. The price was also substantial hah..hah...
As usual, I sapu my partner's chilies including the ones he isolated on his plate.
We ordered only one drink, the Barley Lime. Very refreshing and slightly sweet. The reason for only one drink was this.
The Ais Campur@Ais Kacang. We had been dreaming of this since seeing it served to other customers on our earlier visit.
The ice shavings is quite coarse and surprisingly it was not too sweet. My partner commented that the ice kacang in Penang tastes better. I am sure of that even though I have yet to have ice kacang in Penang. This was was not remarkable.
There was not much liew in the ice kacang. Just a few bits of red beans, cendol, strips of cincau, one attap chee (which my partner showed me through his teeth hah..hah..) and bits of cashew nuts.
I spied a customer sitting behind my partner having cendol (I want!) and not only that, the couple sitting beside us ordered the rojak with soft shell crab (I also want!!). My eyes are so naughty. So I guess, we will be coming back to Madam Kwan's, won't we?
