Food is one of the most powerful connective tools we have. We build our bonds with friends and family over dinners, we go to restaurants on dates, we prepare food for others and with others. Food connects us to the world. Whether it’s a particular meal that reminds us of home comforts, or simply sustenance to get us through the day, food is never meaningless.
Food evokes memories and associations that are just as powerful as other cultural products, if not more so due to the fact that they stimulate all the senses.
At 3 Sekawan Restaurant, food doesn’t just bring back memories, it creates them too.

The beautiful setting, with Malaysian touches, and complete with lots of memories filled with various spices, herbs and ingredients, was such a lovely, relaxed space within the restaurant to dine.
This is Calvin and Vivian’s first restaurant venture and as you walk into the gorgeous restaurant, it really feels like you have walked into someone’s house. The Malaysian batik concept print table cloths, the decor and even the music is all just so lovely and you feel instantly relaxed.
Sure, a cup of piping hot tea or coffee is a delight anytime of the day. But, nothing can match the priceless moments you have shared with your friends over a just a cup of tea or coffee at Restaurant 3 Sekawan. So, if you want to relive those chai/coffee moments with your friends, then don’t worries. You can recreate those moments here at Restaurant 3 Sekawan. The endless chatter over a cup of iced Kopi-O is surely a match made in heaven just like you and your best friend, wouldn’t you agree?
The extensive menu runs from East to West, One of the most popular dishes is the Nasi Lemak 3 Sekawan, a wholesome reinterpretation of nasi lemak, without coconut milk, combining pandan-infused brown rice with ayam rendang, poached egg, house-made sambal & caramelised onions. The rice itself may be a little less flavoursome than regular nasi lemak, but consumed with everything else, it remains a worthwhile experience that conveys many of the pleasures of a nasi lemak platter, but notably with Restaurant 3 Sekawan’s own distinctive ingredients, heartily portioned.
The greatest attraction to me was the space, how it was recreated from the original sitcom, “4 Sekawan” with the cool chill-out vibes. I could imagine getting a couple of friends to hang out for coffee and long chats to talk about the good old days.
