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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
