My First Dinner At Nyonya Treats, Johor

DEPARTED FROM IPOH AT 12.40 NOON and landed in Johor around 2pm... very punctual this time, Malindo brought me safely to the grounds at Senai Airport right on time.  Collected my luggage and out to the open air, looking for my friend's car and in no time, we were off to Tun Aminah for a quick lunch.  I was feeling ravenous by then, maybe due to some turbulence on the plane at one certain area, it caused me some anxiety that added to the hunger.

Fast forward.... I had a proper meal during dinner.  We went to Nyonya Treats in Taman Perling, I requested to go there for the Stuffed Fish which I dearly miss.  But to my disappointment, they were all sold out and we had to settle for something different which was not what I expected....
  Looking through the menu, every dish looks so appealing and appetizing... 
I wrongly ordered this Claypot Assam Fish... it was too spicy for my liking... 
And the color of the curry is not that appealing though they have lots of ingredients inside... 
This Or Hiang is not bad... oh, did I spell this out right?
Cincaluk Omelette 
Tapioca leaves.... 
Stinky beans in sambal which is a bit too bitter for my liking too... 
The five dishes for the four of us... 
The only thing that feels right for the night... 
Durian Cendol... 
Don't know why this time round the food was just so-so... 
Maybe the cook was not around?  hmmmm... 
Anyway, I had a nice time catching up with my friends.. 
Food might not be up to expectation nevertheless...
as the saying goes, it is the company that counts!
Fee Great to see them again!!

  3. Wow, from Penang, now to Johor. Lots to eat, nice! Too bad the sambal is bitter else the petai would be very tasty. I also cannot eat too spicy food else I would love to eat the assam fish. The cincaluk omelette should be very tasty if it is not too salty and the vege fan su leaves is tasty too.

    1. The omelette is nice, i think sambal belacan might be overfried thus the bitter taste...

  4. I love nyonya! Did not like one expensive place we went to in Penang, all of us, a big group, all cousins, went and we criticised everything from top to bottom. Went to my old-time favourite in Melaka, didn't quite like it also - not the same anymore. But I did come across one nice one in KL. Sure would love to try any in Johor should I get the chance. How long will you be there? I fly over, jalan jalan cari makan?

  6. Maybe because of GST, that's why the food quality deteriorate. (Still blaming it after so many years now because it is convenient to do so)

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
