Naughty Nyonya's @ Desa Sri Hartamas

Peranakan pleasures sashay into the spotlight: Naughty Nyonya's cheekiest creation might be its fried chicken skin coated in sambal petai (RM22), a flavourful, diet-be-damned combination that we haven't seen in regular eateries. If you're visiting for lunch, the midday sets offer reasonable value for a full-service restaurant like this - RM20 gets you a big bowl of Nyonya laksa, with fresh prawns & an even fresher spice mix in a mellow broth, plus a couple of pai tee & a choice of a soft drink, coffee or tea; the nasi goreng ikan masin with acar set is RM18. If you need dessert & a real drink, the salted coconut ice cream (RM12) & gin with bunga telang tonic (RM20) are both interesting choices that put a 21st-century spin on the Nyonya culinary heritage. Bonus fun fact: Portions of Naughty Nyonya's menu may look familiar; this is the sister restaurant of Bangsar's Shelley Yu's.

  1. Oh? Are they saucy too? LOL! What a cheeky name :) The food is up my alley and I will jump at the first opportunity to eat the fried chicken skin sambal petai. Sounds very sinful!

    1. Phong Hong: saucy in more ways than one! ;) yeah, the dish I wanted to try the most here was the chicken skin. I liked the flavour and the chew, though I think some customers might prefer it to be crunchier ;)

    4. Wah! You so brilliantly graduated from USM! I grew up in Minden Heights and our family home overlooked the padang & faced the flag poles by the USM wordings. Yet none of the siblings made it to USM. So stupid me, Paiseh to admit.

      Now I share that my good buddy from Melaka also got his Master's from USM and is a Professor at UM today. You are too young to know him anyway.....

    1. Suituapui: some of the spices in the sambal might spank your palate! ;) I like pai tee too ... I have fond memories of my aunt frying them at home, and me stuffing them with the fillings ;)
