Hyotan Japanese Restaurant, Restoran Nirwana Maju & Big Hug Burger), or maybe, it all depends on how far we can walk or till we spot an eatery. As we walked, just like that, at this juncture, we arrived in front of Malaqa Nyonya House. Fortunately, akin a spot-on discovery because the three of us simply adore traditional Nyonya cuisine. Walking into this impressive ambiance, which indeed, resembled like the real deal Nyonya Malacca eateries (Where In Malacca), we sat, we flipped through the menu, but it took us a while in deciding what to call for. Each and every item really tempting, speak about the big, bold and cooked alongside Malaysian quintessential spices and herbs savory dishes and also, coconut milk and palm sugar loaded and screwpine/pandan leaves scented sinful sweet treats please. Oh-yum, I was already salivating, finally, we opted for Nyonya Lemak Laksa (Nyonya Assam Laksa), Nasi Kerabu for my two friends and for our after meal sweet indulgence, Pulut Hitam/Black Glutinious Rice Durian (Bubur Kacang Hijau), Sago Gula Melaka (Rose Sago Gula Melaka) and Ice-Kacang.
Soon, within lets say 5 minutes or so, Nyonya Lemak Laksa and Nasi Kerabu simultaneously arrived. Brimming attractively, broth soaking up yellow noodles, julienne cucumber, egg, tofu pok, fish cake and shredded mint leaves, laksa was a hearty filling portion. However, I was a little disappointed with the bland broth which lacked coconut milk creaminess. The vibrant sambal too wasn't as spicy as I expected, so, I called for another serving, but once I was informed that I have to pay 60 cents, hack aside. Why should I pay?
Except for the laksa, the rest of the dishes we tucked into fared quite good. Really. But communicating with the foreign workers was "heaven and hell".
