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. :(

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
