A couple weeks ago we continue our journey in the exploration of Minang food within the KLCC vicinity, and this time around it’s Restoran Grand Garuda Baru at Kampung Baru.

The restaurant is rather big but with pretty simple decoration. It seemingly sits between the old school type of shack like Masakan Padang at Jalan Raja Muda Musa and the higher class establishment like Puti Bongsu. One good thing though is that it is air conditioned, and plays some pretty funny sounding MTV if you’re not familiar with Minang language (sounds like a cross between Malay & Japanese)

As of the food, it’s typical Padang dishes. We had the famous ayam pop, the beef tendon that must not be missed, and the daging salai (smoked beef) that’s so crunchy I wish they come in a plastic bag so I can bring them to cinema.

The tempe, sambal chili, terung (eggplant), and nangka were pretty delicious as well. it was pretty satisfying overall.

The bill came to be about RM 30 ish per pax, which is pretty decent for the type of food we get.

If you have a big group, Restoran Grand Garuda should definitely be in your short list for Padang food.

Discuss : KY eats – Nasi Padang at Grand Garuda Baru

  1. wow that’s a lot of food! Is that banana shoot?

  2. Gotta KIV this place! I love nasi padang! Used to go for that in Singapore in the early 70’s, absolutely yummy – my kind of cuisine.

  3. KY, never had this kind of food before but hope to try it. Seem very spicy but maybe it not. Do you eat it with rice?

  4. heheh, it would actually be kinda fun to smuggle in a bag of daging salai to chew on while watching mad max 😀

  5. joyceanne

    I want tempeeeeeeee!! Kk has no tempe at all you know.

  6. I had been here! And the sambal hijau is not spicy AT ALL to my disappointment . I was heaping it to my plate and I said to my husband.. it is like I can only feel the texture but taste nothing.

    But apart from that I do like my ikan keli berlada. It is marinate nicely.

    • dils: Hahaha, I guess sambal hijau is dependent on season, I find it usually less spicy when it’s been raining alot.
