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.
Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur.
