Nancy's Kitchen

My first try Peranakan Food (Nyonya Cuisine) at Nancy's Kitchen and I am quite satisfied although I have waited 30 minutes for them to open. At least, I am their 1st customer of that day ^^

Lets check what I've ordered... :)

Pie Tee (Top Hat)
Ok...This Pie Tee is nice... can order as your starter if you like :) ....

Close-up shot of Pie Tee

Popiah (Spring Roll)
Popiah skin is a bit too thick and not much filling... This 1 can be skipped.... Let's see what is next...

Sup Itik Tim
 Sup Itik Tim also known as duck with salted vegetable soup. According to Nancy's menu, duck soup cooked on slow heat with salted vegetable and white wine, giving the taste of sourish to the dish. :):):) Nice try :)

Deep Fried Squid
Normal dish which I think you guys can skip. Go for more authentic Nyonya dish will be a great choice.

Cincalok Omelette
Fried egg with fermented shrimp (cincalok). It is a simple and nice dish to those who loves cincalok. :)

Babi Pongteh
My favorite dish among all...  Babi Pongteh is pork with bean paste. Sounds like pork in slated yellow bean cooked with preserved soya bean with dark sweet soya sauce (kicap manis), sugar and other ingredients to create a combination of sweet and savoury taste. Inside there are also potatoes and black mushroom. It is great to eat with white rice. Bravo :):):)

Sek Bak
Sek Bak is Peranakan Braised Pork, where pork is marinated with lemon grass, cinnamon bark, infused with various spices and simmer for hours with black soy sauce. As for serving, pork is cut in thin slices, bean curd and hard boiled egg. As you can see from the photo, this dish is a bit too oily.

Onde - Onde

Ang Ku with green bean filling

Pulut Inti

The Nyonya kuih is beautifully made and is very fresh. Erm... I would say besides the colorful Ang Ku, you won't regret with the Nyonya kuih especially their Onde - Onde...Hm.. I miss it so much...

Great restaurant that I will visit again for sure to try out others in their menu :)
