Nyonya Food At Nancy's Kitchen In Malacca

THE VERY NEXT MORNING, we three ladies continued on our road journey to Malacca.  This is the first time I drove solo, meaning no alternate drivers except my two female passengers who would be in charge of the directions, ie. holding my Handphone with Waze on!  LOL... No Waze means losing our way around, it also means no road trips by ourselves.

Left Sg Buloh around 9.30am and reached Malacca town around noon, just nice to have our lunch.  On the way, there were drizzling and heavy showers at different places but Thank God, we reached Malacca without any hitch.  Waze led us all the way to Nancy's Kitchen, our journey was very smooth, no wrong turnings whatsoever.  So.... ladies, do not fear... if we retirees can do it, you also Can!  LOL...
Upon entering, the ground floor was full with patrons...
We have to adjourn to the second floor.... 
Seated right in front of this cupboard which we used to have
during our younger days.... 
For starters, we ordered a set of Pai Tee... 
They received our Thumbs UP!
As for the dishes.... Nyonya Chicken Curry with Keluak... 
Keluak is some kind of a nut, black in colour, to enhance the taste, I guess....
Nyonya Acar... Green chillies stuffed with papaya... 
Vegetarian Dish....
Stuffed Sambal Fish....
Meal for three hungry ladies.... 
And a Bowl of Cendol to end the meal.... 
The total cost came to around RM60...
No pictures of us three because of our tired looks... LOL....
After our meal, we continued our journey on the highway down south...

  1. I love Nyonya but not many authentic Nyonya cuisine in Kuching. Pai Tee. I can have many of them.

  2. Keluak in curry? Never tried that before - I think the one I had, also in Malacca, was with fermented beans, tau cheo. Can't say I liked it a lot.

    As for the pai tee, here, we used to buy the shells or casings and we usually have the same stuffing as popiah filling - can't buy those anymore so it has been a long time since I had any. :(

  6. The ayam buah keluak looks weirdly different than the normal peranakan dish. I've not dine here before.

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 …
