Whether you are visiting Malaysia for the first time, or are a Malaysian, I recommend for you to make your way to PappaRich at least once.
Since 2006, PappaRich has been recreating Malaysian dishes rich in tradition, values and flavors. Many of my friends enjoy going to PappaRich as you can pick from an array of Malaysian delicacies all under one roof. In fact, their 2 new dishes are from Chinese (The Braised chicken) and Malay (The Mee bandung) heritage.

I was invited to be one of the first to try their latest dishes at the PappaRich Scott Garden outlet.
I'll do away with the small talk and get straight into each dish.
1. PappaRich Mee Bandung
Mee bandung originated from Johor, but Papparich has added their own twist to this dish.
PappaRich's Mee Bandung's uniqueness lies in its gravy.
The gravy is created with its own blend of spice and ingredients. It has a very aromatic smell and when eaten together with the noodles, it creates a balance of taste and texture.
How to make any Chinese girl happy: Tasty noodles!
Accompanying the dish are the traditional prawns and hardboiled egg with the addition of fishcakes. Each mouthful with a bit of everything soaked in the gravy is to die for.
2.PappaRich Braised Chicken Rice
The Braised Chicken Rice was the favorite of the two. Best paired with a hot drink for the ultimate homely feel.
Next up, I had a blast from the past. My grandma used to cook the exact dish when I was younger and I loved everything about it.
The PappaRich Braised Chicken Rice is exactly what PappaRich embodies - homemade food reinvented to taste like it just came out from your grandma's kitchen.
This is going to be my favorite dish at PappaRich, apart from their Beef Kway Teow.
This dish is served with the chicken thigh lightly fried and left to braise in delicious chicken gravy before is it served. The rice and Hong Kong Sawi that the dish is served with is also drizzled with the same chicken gravy.
I can't rave enough about this dish. My only qualm was that it wasn't boneless chicken that they used, but to each of their own. This is definitely a must try when you visit PappaRich- a true Chinese homemade dish.
** The Mee Bandung and Braised Chicken Rice is only available in certain PappaRich outlets but will we served nationwide by teh 22nd of May.
