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 ;).

Klang: Bak Kut Teh @ Restoran Thong Wei, Pandamaran
icon1 Cupnoodles | icon2 Klang Valley, Places to Eat, Selangor | icon4 09 17th, 2010| icon3Comments Off on Klang: Bak Kut Teh @ Restoran Thong Wei, Pandamaran

We went to Pandamaran, Klang to get Miharu’s City service at a Honda specialist shop here, as we had yet to eat anything for the day, we decided to venture out to shops nearby for a quick makan while waiting for the car to be worked at.

Nearby, hidden at Jalan Sentosa behind some houses and shops is a corner shop, Restoran Thong Wei selling bak kut teh. I asked the mechanic how’s the bkt there and he said, its not bad, can give it a try.

As we are approaching the shop, I noticed that the cook and I assume is the lady boss looks like a Thai lady, maybe she is Thai-Chinese I supposed. Even at the praying altar I do see Thai relevance.

Anyhow, this shop is quite popular and mainly locals, plus the prices are still friend too. If you are alone, you can order a bowl instead, as its cheaper at RM5.80 for small and RM6.80 for big. Otherwise you can go for claypot at RM8.80 per head. Rice is 80 cents for big and 40 cents for small.

We ordered 1 1/2 heads for claypot (small bone with some internal mixed) as there are 2 of us, with a bowl of yoo tiao plus 2 rices. The rice are topped with fried shallots the way I like it.

I would rate the soup as average, this is not the heavy type nor the light type but in between in terms of thickness and taste. But what is really nice is the meat, it looks fatty but when you take it, its quite alright.

The meat are tender as the small bone part always is but not too hard and dry. The skin with its layer of fats looks heavy, but when you actually take it, its smooth and nice to eat (well I did remove the access fats, but there are still quite a bit of the skin).

Surprisingly the bkt here turns out better than I expect and we had a decent brunch thanks to it.

Its been more than 10 years since all of us worked together in the old company and when Jack sent out a mail calling for gathering, everyone turned up except for the few whom have “migrated” one way of another.

We wanted to have a beer session but since food is quite important as well, we decided to have a proper dinner before our beer session. I asked Ah John the local worm to recommend a good and affordable Chinese dishes dinner in Puchong and was pointed to Restoran 8 Road (just beside Thong Kee and below Hotel Orkid).

As KC was the first to arrived we left the ordering to him. First up are some lala cooked in herbal soup served in claypot, the soup is very tasty and full of flavours.

I personally liked the chicken very much, just simple poached chicken and chopped up but served with a sauce of chopped Chinese parsley, garlic, soya sauce.

The braised pork belly is ok but a little too big for the serving, too much meat for me there.

The frog legs stirred fried with dark soya sauce and dried chili is rich in flavours but yet the frog legs are tender, very well done.

I think everyone enjoyed the dinner very much as we cleaned everything up in like minutes. The dinner for 8 of us cost about RM147.00 for food and RM65 for some starter beers, so pricing is reasonable but most important of all, the food is very good ;).
