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..

  5. For real, you want to leave Malacca without savouring peranakan food. That's not the ReanaClaire I know of, hahaha.....Food looks good especially the popiah, cendol,cincaluk omelette & the greens.

  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

  10. Lucky all of you decided to stop for lunch, and a delicious lunch at that. Wouldn't feel nice to be travelling on an empty stomach. Cincalok Omelette sounds so tasty!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
