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!!


  1. How long will you be staying there? Hope you have a great visit!!

  2. Never mind, the good company will compensate for everything. Have fun in Johor!

  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?

    1. Sure, do fly over but let me know when! Mine is not a long stay... hehehehe

  5. If Suituapui fly over to Johor, we can have a blogger meetup, kakaka...

  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)

    1. hahaaa... must find some reason to blame, right?

  7. Great to meet up with friends. Too bad the food not up to expectation. Hope they read your post and put things right. Ha ha!

  8. I am still waiting for my buddy to have free time to go Johor together

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
