A couple weeks ago we continue our journey in the exploration of Minang food within the KLCC vicinity, and this time around it’sÂ Restoran Grand Garuda Baru at Kampung Baru.
Grand Garuda Baru, 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)
masakan Padang in all its glory
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.
don’t forget to have this little dessert
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.
