A Peranakan Lunch At Nancy's KitcheN, Malacca

MY MALACCA TRIP WAS SPENT relaxing and going for my meals only.... While the rest of the family went shopping, I spent my time in the hotel room and waiting for them at the lobby when we checked out.  I could only strolled along the hotel area, there were a few shopping outlet within MY walking distance, H&M is one of them.  But I did not end up buying anything, could not find anything that suits me, the designs and the prices, none caught my eye.... hahahaha... 

We thought of skipping lunch and headed straight back to KL but whilst doing so, a shop caught the driver's eye.. He suggested that we should try Nyonya food before heading back.  He must be pretty hungry, actually I was hungry too... I only took a light buffet breakfast in the morning.... The shop which caught his eye was none other than Nancy's KitcheN!  This shop was mentioned in the tourist booklet we read in the hotel...

Authentic Peranakan Food... 

The shop was fully occupied... but thank goodness, we managed to get a table upon entering...
Otherwise we have to climb the stairs to the second floor....
For appetizers, we started off with a Nyonya Popiah...
I like it... Sweet and nice... 
And the thick santanic cendol...
My sister said it was the BEST so far!!
Peranakan Otak-Otak.... 
Four angles beans.... Very spicy too...
 Cincaluk omelette... 
Peranakan Curry Chicken....
Fried Rice.... 
Our Peranakan Lunch at Nancy's KitcheN....
Bill came to around RM70 plus plus drinks with beer.... 
Feeling much satisfied after an authentic lunch, 
we proceeded on our journey back to Sg Buloh....

  2. Must not leave Melaka without eating authentic nonya food, right? All the dishes look nice. I love that type of popiah very much!

  4. I love the otak-otak the most.. When my kolik balik kampung to Melaka, I sure ask him to buy me a few blocks of otak-otak, just like in the picture.. Then I just thaw, and steam on top of the rice cooker.. Sedappp..

  6. I love nyonya food but so far, the ones I went to in Malacca and Penang had been disappointing. I went to Mako, it was so good years ago but not anymore. :(

  7. I hear a new word Kolik!Yum! Yum! Yummy! I always love everything inside the Nyonya Menus. They are very tasty and appetizing until China folks also love them like heavens.

    I am following your footsteps to travel while we are still able and capable. i realised that my legs and pockets are most important. LOL

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
