PappaRich – Malaysian Street Fare In Restaurant Setting

PappaRich - Malaysian Street Fare In Restaurant Setting

PappaRich is quite big in Malaysia, with over 50 branches. You do see the restaurants around. The situation in Singapore is slightly different with four outlets at Star Vista, Parkway Parade, Suntec City and Westgate. Plus, people get confused between PappaRich with PappaMia, PappaSan and Pappa2, which are incidentally from a Hong Kong establishment.

To set things straight, PappaRich is a Malaysian grown brand, known for their signatures of Nasi Lemak, Chicken Rice, Assam Laksa, Prawn Mee, Horfun and drinks.

The owner is a successful businessman Rich Tan (seriously, the power of positive thinking in your name) currently in his late 40s, who is said to have travelled across Malaysia to get the very best street fare in his restaurant. He has done really well.

Case in point, one of PappaRich’s recommended dish in the Hainanese Steamed Bread with Kaya ($3.90) and Half-Boiled Eggs ($2.90). The bread is made according to a traditional recipe by a baker who came from Hainan province.

Well, Rich loved the bread so much, he bought the factory. Yes that is where that soft and fluffy bread you may not have thought twice about came from.

Two of my favourite dishes from PappaRich are the Super Rich Combo ($16.90) and Pappa Curry Laksa ($9.90), which I consider to be my occasional indulgence.

The former is similar to a Nasi Briyani combo, made with Basmati rice with braised beef, sweet and spicy squid, potato, hard boiled egg, lady finger and papadum. To top it up, a particularly crispy fried chicken drumstick that gives a crackling noise as you cut the skin apart to reveal juicy meat.

Papparich Curry Laksa is quite different from the usual versions. The gravy is somewhat thicker and richer, made with 10 different spices, with a saltier than spicy tinge to it. The fish-stuffed foo chok soaked in the coconut curry makes guilty pleasure, but one has to keep reminding myself to stop finishing up the gravy!

The desserts and drinks such as the Cendol and Longan Milk Honey are quite tasty, just that the price range of $3-$6 for a cup may make you think twice, considering it may cost the same up north.

Psychologically, it does feel a bit pricey to pay that much more for ‘street food’. But the comfortable spacious restaurant setting with some delicious Malaysian fare should make up for it.

  30. My fav would be the Super Rich Combo – rice is always good and definitely filling with the chicken leg!

  31. I truly savoured their Pappa Lemak with Fried Chicken Drumstick + Squid! It was really love at first sight. The chicken drumstick was fried to perfection; juicy and flavourful altogether. In addition, the sweet and spicy squid was pleasing on the palate; not too heavy, not too light, just the way I liked it. 🙂

  32. The owner sold off his PappaRoti in M'sia and came over to sg to start this.

    I love their chendol!

  37. super rich combo is definitely my favourite! the drumstick looks awesome!

  38. I go for the 'Fried Rice Special with :v Fried Chicken Drumstick'. It is a good combination having the fried rice instead of plain rice, as it will be tasteful in its own rice world, leaving the sambal to devour the drumstick in red. The fried egg will complete the yin-yang taste with the sambal/ just plain fried chicken drumstick. Ah..that's the way ah ha ah ha I like it…

  39. Pappa Curry Laksa

  80. I love Pappa Curry Laksa. :))

  81. I love their super rich combo set because it is so hearty! 🙂

  82. I love their ‘Fried Rice Special with Fried Chicken Drumstick because the drumstick is huge and it makes chicken lovers like me feel very shoik after eating them. As the drumstick is not overcooked, it taste really tender and juicy and i like it because most of the drumsticks i tried are mostly overcooked thus making it really tough and hard to eat. Also, the fried rice has sufficient spices added in it thus making the overall dish really good and the fried chicken simply compliments the dish 😉

  83. ♥ I love the nasi lemak!! esp the chilli! ♥

  84. best is the combo.a bit pricey but worth the money due to ingredients used.drumstick big and crispy..beef tender.yummy.

    It has to be the Ipoh Kuey Teow Soup with chicken slices.. The soup is so rich and delicious and the kuey teow is really smooth!

  91. I first tried the steamed bread with kaya and parboiled eggs in Malaysia several years ago and it simply blew my mind away. it was so good that it quickly soared up to the top 10 breakfasts i ever had. It will be an amazing experience to re-live that moment in one of the outlets in singapore

  92. My all-time favourite dish from Papparich is their Nasi Lemak! It is so delicious. The coconut rice was aromatic, the Chicken Wing was so tender and not forgetting all the other components that bring this dish together like the Crispy fried anchovies, Fried peanuts, Hard boiled egg, and the SPICY sambal were all perfect. Lovin’ it! (Y)

  93. I haven't tried PappaRich before, but the Pappa Curry Laksa looks absolutely delicious! Would definitely love to try it!

  94. I love Pappa Curry Laksa! <3

  95. Curry laksa,that’s the ticket!

  96. My favourite dish from PappaRich is curry laksa. The noodles of the laksa are soaked long enough that each slurp was bursting with flavour, together with a nice velvety touch to the pungent, fragrant and rich with a distinctive coconut flavour curry soup. It is curry noodles at it’s best!

  97. I love the curry laksa!

  98. One of my favourite dishes from PappaRich will be their Curry Laksa as I am a laksa lover and always love to venture out & try all the different types of laksa with different taste. I love the laksa gravy which is thicker and richer & also made with 10 different spices with a salty tinge which made my taste buds trickling & adrenaline rushing to my brain ! <3

  99. Hainanese Steamed Bread with Kaya !!! 😀 <3
