PJ: Lunch at Sri Nyonya Restaurant

My sis buzzed me one afternoon as she wanted to take me to a good nyonya restaurant in PJ, so we made arrangement and the family was there for lunch on Sunday. I soon realised that this is Sri Nyonya, which was one of the very popular Nyonya restaurant located in PJ in the early days.

In business for 24 years, Sri Nyonya serves up Authentic Penang Nyonya cuisines and you can find out much more at their website.

The owner, Mr. James Kuok explained to me that they put in alot of effort to ensure hygiene in the restaurant, where it is fully netted and air conditioned to be fly-free. What also impressed me is their passion of cooking Penang Nyonya cuisines where they stay true to how the dishes are supposed to be with authentic ingredients.

Greedy as usual we order a whole lot of signature dishes which are the beef rendang, lamb kurma, nasi ulam, kerabu paku, ikan gulai tumis, ju hu char, fried chicken and prawn omelette. You can really see the authentic-ness and amount of effort required in each of these dishes… bravo!

For dessert we tried both the cendol and also bubur pulut hitam accompanied by some Nyonya kueh. As we are not fans of sweet-ness, we are glad that the desserts are not too sweet but yet retaining all the flavours in them.

I noticed that the shop had 2 set of coffee machines plus the Lavazza sign and I asked James if they serve it here and he gladly told me that he have been enjoying and making these true coffee since the 1950’s. James took the trouble to made me a cup of cappuccino while explaining the process along the way. I have to say that the cappuccino if good and milky rich.

Overall, the food here is great, James and the family that runs the place is friendly and passionate plus there’s great coffee to finish the meal off. For those whom had miss the good taste at Sri Nyonya, its time to look them up again ;).
