Hu Pio Soup
Tummy warming, nourishing soup complete with splendid of ingredients from bouncy prawn balls, chewy hu piau, sengkuang and carrot brimming with sweetness of soup yet maintaining the texture.
Ju Hu Char
Ju Hu Char, one should never leave a Nyonya meal without this signature dish. Shredded cuttlefish, jicama, mushroom stir fried together, brimming with deep flavour of cuttlefish. Wrap a spoonful of these shredded goodness with lettuce and sambal bursted with fiery hot sensation.
Ayam Buah Keluak
A distinctive dish made from chicken chunks and a kind of black nuts called “keluak”, showcasing an indescribable flavour that you will either like or stay away from it. Imagine the sticky, gluey, earthy texture like clay.
Kerabu Jantung Pisang with Prawns
Taste-bud tickling dish beautifully loaded in mild-spicy and coconuty gravy, yet not cloying as the juiciness lends from the Jantung Pisang, or buds of banana flower plant manage to make it into a balance flavour. Not to forget the plump prawns that adds on more texture.
Melaka Ayam Pongteh
Continue the gastronomic experience with Melaka Ayam Pongteh, one of the most popular dishes in Nyonya cuisine. It is generally made from chicken, potatoes, and mushroom braised in fermented bean paste, dark soy sauce and palm sugar to result in flavourful, savoury-sweet gravy that goes really well with rice.
Penang Perut Ikan
Since the family of Chef Debbie hails both from Penang and Melaka, she understands well the Nyonya food from both the North and South region. Ths Penang Perut Ikan is utterly delicious, intense with layers of sourneess and spiciness.
End the meal with traditional Nyonya dessert- Talam Cendol, Rempah Udang, and Kuih Kasui. Chef Debbie’s rempah udang is surprisingly good, encasing savoury spiced shredded coconut within chewy soft, sticky good glutinous rice.
