Warisan

Having replaced a museum at Dataran Merdeka, Restoran Warisan showcases Malaysia's culinary heritage in a stately setting.

Nasi lemak with beef rendang. Won't exactly linger very long in the memory, but tasty enough to evoke a simple sigh of satisfaction.

Soto ayam, brimming with a fairly flavorsome mix of nasi impit, potato patties, groundnuts, beansprouts & onions in a broth that wasn't as greasy as feared.

Kuey teow kerang. Not terrible, but this needed much more 'wok hei' & cockles to become the char kuey teow of our dreams. At least it wasn't watery though.

Laksa Penang with fish gravy, prawn paste, cucumber, onions, chili & boiled egg. A curious concoction that combined elements of both assam laksa & curry laksa.

Ayam kampung kunyit. Savory, but slightly too stringy.

Rojak buah. Gosh, why did we even order this? Never liked it anywhere, never will.

Pulut tapai, sweetly fermented. A love-it-or-hate-it creation.

  8. Negative on rojak buah for me too! Practically a criminal admission since I'm from Penang but I like my cut fruit fine on its own, thank you very much! :-P

  10. ulric: heh, you're right, i haven't noticed it before. still not quite tempted, but i'll definitely take it under recommendation if i spot it! :D
    min: on the other hand, i must say i really like the "indian rojak" that's common in my hometown of malacca: potatoes, hard-boiled eggs, crisp cucumber, bean curd, all doused in a lovely sweet-nuty sauce! =)
    qwazymonkey: heheh, all the "buts" are a bad sign, i admit. i'm not sure i'll ever return here, unless someone wants to visit dataran merdeka :D

  11. Now this doesn't look like a typical place that you would usually visit... the food doesn't look very impressive, neither was the description :P Plus, except for the nasi lemak, I am not attracted to other dishes. Hehe ..

  12. iamthewitch: heheh, yeah, i agree, i wasn't a fan of the food here either. i guess i was more interested to visit this place for its ambiance, which turned out to be OK only :D

  14. Missyblurkit: oooh, I didn't realize there were different versions of soto ayam. To be honest, I wasn't even sure whether it's a Malaysian or Indonesian recipe, heheh :D
