Nyonya cuisine

We usually go for Nyonya food in M’lcca.  It’s more authentic there.  Dh’s father and forefathers were Straits Chinese, so we are used to eating this type of food.  And the best is always from home.  His Ah mah used to cook all the dishes and since she’s been gone, Ah May, the cook, does all the Nyonya cooking for us when we go to M’lcca.  I wished we went to M’lcca more often when the grandma was alive so I could have learned from her.  I’m not familiar with this cuisine at all. We often frequent Nyonya Suan’s or the restaurant next door, Peranakan Antique Restaurant. But 1.5 weeks ago, we tried a newly opened restaurant serving Nasi Kemuli-special rice with typical Nyonya dishes, like sambal veggies, prawns or sotong, chix curry, pong tay(chix), fried chix.  Was pretty good but Halal though, so no pork.  I wasn’t like “wow” about it.  Dh said he was quite impressed.  Tastes pretty authentic according to him.  I thought it was pricey(Rm 45 /head for nasi kemuli) and the dishes a bit too sweet.  I still like Nyonya Suan’s better.  The cendol there is to die for.  NO other restaurant can match theirs.  Anyways, he’s pretty gung ho about it and wants to try it again when we are in M’lcca.  This new restaurant is called Amy’s Heritage Nyonya Cuisine at the Bunga Raya area.
