Been watching too much of the Peranakan show on the TV.... just feel like having some Peranakan food :)
Nonya bah chang
That was the frist time I ate a dumpling that used the extract of the blue-pea flower. I think it was rather unique, though the taste was not as flavourful as the normal ones I would get from the normal stalls in food court.
Nonya Ngo Hiang
I didn't like this too much... I thought there was too much beancurd and too little fillings... even with too little fillings... the fillings were not tasty.
Nonya Chap Chye
nothing special... I doubt i would order this dish, if I ever managed to get myself into this place.
okie... my pet peeve is the taste of "been in too long in the freezer";. And this was a dish with it!!! the mixture of crab, pork and prawn were not really fish... and i did not even see much of bamboo shoots or egg that were supposed to be in this prawn and chicken stock... I think some ppl can do better with a piece of chicken stock piece.
Ayam Buah Keluak
I had a craving for this nut... Buah keluak... I just can't pronounce it.. but i looooooooove it. This was done with chicken... I basically just want the nuts and none of the chicken at all. The sauce was rather flavourful :D I think mixed with rice would be a gooooooood idea.
These were the reasons why I went for nonya food :P~ Yummy
