NileGuide Expert tip:
Another must try here is ais kacang or shaved ice, with a large serving of peanuts, corn, red beans and grass jelly, drizzled with evaporated milk and red rose syrup – perfect for a hot day.

Madam Kwan's is very popular. Lunch and dinner always bring in the crowds with mile-long lines. It seems like the restaurant has found the winning formula. That's because restaurants like Madam Kwan's replicate street food favorites and bring them, out of back lanes and side streets, indoors. This way you are able to forego the hot, sticky and crowded open-air style eating for more cozy and swanky interiors. Madam Kwan's popularity is due to the endearing friendliness of the place and to its traditional, comfort street-fare. Have nasi lemak (coconut rice with condiments), char koay teow (wok-fried flat rice noodles tossed with bean shoots and shellfish, Hainanese mushroom chicken rice or fish head curry, best savored when drizzled over warm white rice. There's a lively atmosphere with a crowd made up of long-time regulars and foodies, reproducing the feel of a traditional kopitiam (coffee houses). Service is quick and efficient.
