A taste of Malacca's Nyonya traditions has come to Subang this month, courtesy of this cafe that's a spin-off from my southern hometown's Ta Chi Nyonya House.
Nasi lemak, "bunga telang" blue (RM5.50 before taxes), makes for the best breakfast.
Chicken pongteh. RM6.50 for drumstick & thigh combined, a suburb-suitable rate.
Otak-otak, seafood belacan fried noodles, laksa lemak, asam pedas fish, sambal petai prawns & chap chai are among the remaining attractions. Food's fairly flavorful.
Making coffee at Malaqa Nyonya House this week: Malacca's "Coffee Prince" Vincent Yong.
Peranakan Coffee, creamy with caramel & santan (!).
Illy frozen coffee specialty, like a cross between a milkshake & ice-blended beverage.
Caffe latte, smooth & medium-bodied. All in all, a decent entry to Subang's SS15 area.
Malaqa Nyonya House,
84, Jalan SS15/4, Subang Jaya.
Open daily, 9am-10pm
