Nyonya Colours (Empire Subang)


Empire Subang (Serai EmpireOle-Ole Bali and Lameeya) frequently I visit either for shopping or lunching with friends and today, another "makan-makan/eating" with the three friends I have not seen for a while. Upon walking into the mall, deciding on the eatery was the biggest "mission impossible" as each had their own preferences. So, up and down we walked along the rows of eateries and then somewhat agreed over Nyonya Colours.

Even so, ordering took quite a while but eventually we did at the self-service counter. As we sat outside facing the car park area and main road, drinks were served - fresh sour plum juice, Milo ice, teh tarik and Roselle juice. Except for the captivating sweet-sour juice made with Roselle flowers, the rest of the drinks, oh-well, you like you order. Thereafter within another ten minutes, came the mains - asam laksa, dry curry mee, nasi lemak pandan special and nasi kunyit ayam.

Asam laksa - sour spicy fishy broth with noodles and topped with red chillies, cucumber, mint leaves, thinly sliced red onions and ginger torch bud, I triple loved. In fact, at par with those authentic ones from hawker stalls.
Dry curry mee - thick creamy vibrant gravy with noodles, chicken, bean sprouts, tofu pok and garnished with red chillies and mint leaves, delicious and satisfying especially the spicy and coconut milk flavoured gravy.
Nasi lemak pandan special - well, special must be the light green pandan flavoured rice, accompanied with chicken rendang, sambal/chilli gravy, cucumber slices, boiled egg, fried anchovies and peanuts. Taste-wise, the friend didn't rave but said that this popular Malaysian dish will be appreciated if you are nasi lemak lover.
Similar to the asam laksa, nasi kunyit/turmeric rice with curry ayam/chicken was another truly pleasurable dish. The friend didn't say exactly why but I sort of gathered that the fluffy rice and the Nyonya style curry must have worked well together.
We then called for the rojak buah, - an eclectic mix of local fruits crispy fried keropok and topped with crushed peanuts and the calamansi lime. These we mixed together and after tucking in, we liked the flavours.
Nyonya Colours I don't mind returning again ( RM51.00) for the asam laksa, nasi kunyit ayam and rojak.
