How have you all been?
I miss you all =D
I really do miss blogging and getting in contact with you all.
***Sending out LOTS of HUGS***
A little while back, I had the opportunity to try some of our local nyonya cuisine.
***Drooling just thinking about how it tasted like***
The very famous Baba Low's 486 which serves Peranakan food
is now available for us KL folks to enjoy.
Baba Low's 486 is located at Lorong Kurau, Bangsar.
I find Lorong Kurau to be a nice and cozy place,
hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
A wonderful place to enjoy a nice quite meal.
Now we do not need to travel all the way to Melaka to enjoy Baba Low's mouth watering food =D
Very laid back and simple interior.
Because of it's simplicity, it does give me a very homey traditional feeling.
Their menu spread.
Old school black board and chalk writings =D
And for those who have problems visualizing the awesome dishes,
they also provide pictorials.
Yay! I love menu with pictorials,
especially if it is your first time there,
pictures really help.
Ooo..and little stars or small chef hats to signify recommend
dishes are also always helpful =D
Some of their mains
Nyonya Laksa RM 7
Delicious bowl of warm goodness!
Very appetizing bowl of noodles that will bring out your appetite.
This Nyonya Laksa does not have the especially thick soup base.
I rather enjoyed the citrus taste of the laksa which comes from lime,
it does give the bowl of laksa a refreshing taste.
Popiah Kulit Telor RM 4
Popiah is a wrap containing turnip, cucumber, bean sprout, coriander, shredded eggs.
The popiah skin is like a really thin but soft version of crepes.
I find the popiah to be so so only but still consider to be good.
Not too salty or too wet that it will break the popiah skin.
Mee Siam RM 6
Delicious spicy fried beehoon served with
shredded eggs and cucumber with fish cakes.
If you are a fan of spicy, you have to try this =D
* I do recommend to eat it while it is hot,
otherwise it will not taste as good
Tauhu Sumbat RM 3.50
Tauhu Sumbat literally translate to stuffed tofu.
Fried tofu stuffed with cucumber and turnip strips,
drizzled with a sweetish chilly sauce.
Personally, I found the dish to be slightly bland,
however, the tofu is fried to the optimum texture which is quite nice =D
Mee Goreng Nyonya RM 7
Nyonya styled fried noodles served with shredded eggs,
pineapple/cucumber sambal salad.
I actually quite enjoyed this dish.
Because it is nyonya styled, it has a pinch of sweet sourish taste to the noodles
which I rather enjoyed.
Cendol RM 4.50
Thirst quenching mouth watering bowl of shaved ice
drizzle with coconut milk and gula melaka!
I absolutely love their cendol.
For me it has just the right amount of gula melaka,
not bland not too sweet.
Ahhhh... Just perfect for the humid Malaysian weather!
I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for
some good local peranakan cuisine that is gentle on your wallet =D
My must have pick:
Nyonya Laksa and Cendol
