Precious Old China at The Central Market, Kuala Lumpur

ABBEY: You know what a restaurant looks like in movies where it is dimly lit and the gangsters will come and occupy the whole place? That’s the feel of Precious Old China restaurant at second storey of Central Market. Not that it is terrfying or scary but you’re like in a movie. 

The restaurant is packed with big groups of people. You can see old wooden chairs, tables and cabinet and a bar is located at the left side of the entrance. But just press a button to get your order or bill. 

Now, that is “new” stuff. I got Nasi Lemak. It has blue-white rice (mimics the china porcelain) and the chicken is curry chicken not fried and chicken lobak; all for (MYR12.80). Nothing much with the rice except for the color. But the curry chicken curry is delicious as well as the lobak which gives more flavor after dipping in sweet chili sauce. 

You can pay via card but the bill must have a minimum of 50MYR.

WILL: When we arrived in KL Malaysia, all I want is to taste their local food with curry. So for our first meal for our trip at Central Market, I ordered Nyonya Laksa at Precious Old China. Well, of course Abbey went for the blue rice of Precious Nasi Lemak. 

It totally made a difference when you sprinkle kalamansi or lime. It gave a spark. The soup is creamy, noodle itself was cooked to its perfection. Tourist are flagging this restaurant for a good reason. 

'Till our next visit!
