One of the many foodie in Malacca that we wanted to try so badly is the nyonya cuisine. We found one which is located right at Jonker Street, a shop next to Jonker Boutique Hotel.
Anak Nyonya Restaurant was packed with patrons when we reached at 7pm
we were seated at a back lane alike next to the kitchen.
Browsing through their menu, we ordered 4 dishes plus one soup for the four of us. (all small portion)
As for drinks, they highly recommended the pineapple juice so we tried one priced at RM2.50. I thought it was nothing much to shout about. It’s sweet but lacked of taste. Guess which one is??
Answer: left (the other one is jasmine tea)
One of the must try Malacca delicacies is the pong teh chicken priced at RM10. The chicken is well marinated and the potato was cooked until soft. The gravy was flavorful with a hint of sweetness.
Tamarind fried prawns at RM18. I liked how the asam coated each of the prawn but sadly, it was slightly overcooked.
Cincaluk egg at RM7. Crispy at the edge and soft in the inside but was a tad too salty.
Baby kai lan with shrimp paste at Rm10 which was a lil spicy and got its flavor from the shrimp paste.
Salted vegetable duck soup at RM12 was nothing but salty. It was super salty that we can’t take it.
Of all the above, we all voted pong teh chicken the best. We are actually not quite sure if the people of Malacca like salty food but the cook has been very generous with the salt portion.
Total bill came up to RM66.60 inclusive of tea at 60sen and rice at RM4.
