At Grandma's, you will be spoilt for choice with the array of wholesome local dishes - just the way Grandma used to cook it. Savour the popular Nasi Lemak, with its splendid aromatic rice and accompaniments or the tasty curry or assam Laksa, tuck in to the famous Char Kway Teow or simply indulge in the popular chendol. You need not go far to have a taste of Singapore flavour.

    Singapore's Version of KL's Mdm Kwan's

    This Paragon branch is the 3rd outlet of the chain of Grandma's Restaurants, the pioneer being the one at Orchard Parade Hotel.

    1) Nasi Bukhari ($14), savoury pilaf rice with fried chicken thigh, half a boiled egg, and sides of beef rendang and prawns with sweet onions. The chicken thigh was fried very well, crisp on the outside but retaining its juiciness on the inside.

    2) Ipoh Kway Teow in clear broth with shredded chicken and prawns ($8.80), The soup was predominantly very light. I love the smoothness of the kway teow.

    3) Claypot Beancurd ($8.80), braised deep fried egg beancurd with squid, prawns, pork slices, cauliflower, snowpeas, and garlic. This had a homecooked taste to it.

    4) Chendol (promo price of only $0.60): This was slurpalicious. Green jelly, red beans, coconut milk, atap seed, and bits of sago, slathered in rich and sweet gula melaka.

    5) Sago Gula Melaka ($3.80), pearl sago drenched in coconut milk and gula melaka. This was served cold. Very yummy.

      Excellent spot for local food~

      Had the opportunity to come here for a lunch meeting, but that means I didn't get any shots of what I ate or glimpse of how much it was :I

      Simple dining chairs accompanied by mostly square tables occupied the basic-decorated place. Service was polite but can be inconsistent: our meeting kept being interrupted either by staff too eager to clear our plates or us trying to catch their eyes for top-up of water and the bill.

      For such a nondescript place, the food I have to say was really good and totally changed my opinion of hotel F&B outlets serving local food, most of which I've tried are yucky and overpriced.

      Here' what my boss ordered:

      Stir fried long beans - came hot off the wok with just the right amount of crunch, topped with excellent shrimp paste.

      Rendang beef - I am very sensitive to the 'beefy' smell but this announced itself only after my 2nd piece. Very tender and clean of whatever smell I didn't like - now one of my favorite beef dish!

      Onion prawns - Generous sized prawns stir fried with onion strips in a tomato-ish sauce. Good!

      Otah - Surprisingly average; and I would have liked chunkier pieces of fish in it instead of a fine mash.

      Assam Fish Head - Came in a huge portion served in a buffet-style ware, this was simply excellent with rice. Very fresh fish, plenty of lady fingers, and a whole lot of the spicy-tangy sauce kept me happy.

      (the names of the dishes may not be what is reflected on the menu because I didn't get to see the menu at all...)

      The serving of rice was big but I finished everything :D Was sniffing my nose throughout lunch because of all the spices but it was worth every bit of it. I kept myself balanced with a side order of a young coconut.

      Came to know that the place is more known for its nasi lemak, assam laksa etc....that will be my order on my next visit :D
