Madam Kwan’s – a restaurant where you cant go wrong when you are there. The restaurant which is showcasting the best of Malaysian delights where they have one of the best curries, rendangs and of course my favorite Nasi Lemak. Being that, we often see Madam Kwan’s with her smiling face in her hat and also glasses. Madam Kwan Swee Lian – the 83 years old lady is still up at the crack of dawn every day to oversee the food preparations in the central kitchen and a familiar sight at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur Outlet during the day with her friendly figure, large framed glasses and the signature hat.
Paying tribute to the grande dame who speaks Cantonese and Bahasa Malaysia, the family-owneed business has published a biography sharing Kwan’s life story while featuring her favourite recipes from her childhood as well as from Madam Kwan’s.
Written by her granddaughter, Catherine Foo, “Madam Kwan: Her Untold Story and Beloved Recipes” tells the tale of how a tenacious and enterprising beauty salon business woman with no cooking experience moved into the restaurant business to eventually build a successful enterprise with her son Rudy and daughter in law- Rudy and Maureen Ooi.

These 25 recipes will be coming with the classic favoriteswhere yu can have those delicious Hainanese Chicken Chop, fragrant Petail Prawns, Creamy Curry Fish Head and also the iconic Nasi Bojari.
