A touch of Nyonya influence by Debbie Teoh @ Park Royal KL

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

This was the most satisfaction Nyonya dinner I ever had! Every meal was so authentic and I could feel the hard work of Chef Debbie Teoh. She is true-bred Nyonya who hails from Malacca, whose father is a Baba from Malacca, whilst her mother is a Nyonya from Penang. So, there are both Southern and Nothern Nyonya styles in her recipe.

Before the dinner began, I had a chat with Debbie. She told me that the meal she prepared for us, all the ingredients were prepare by herself and most importantly, every single ingredients were fined cut by hand. It took almost 1 day to prepare all the ingredients. WOW! I can't wait to try her cook.

Back to the tradition - beca, teh tarik...

Have a glance at the dishes that prepared by Chef Debbie.

Let's start with the appetizer.

Pie Tee
This is the most delicious pie tee I ever had. The ingredients in the shell was shredded carrot, jicama, fried shallots, minced prawn & crab meat.

We were given a chance to DIY our Pie Tee. The pie tee shell was so crispy and you could just eat it without adding any ingredients. Just eat it this way. It could be snack too :) yummm...

Steamed Lady Fingers
A very simple vege dishes yet healthy. 2 different kinds of sauces were prepared - sour bean sauce and a garlic soy sauce. I prefer the sour bean sauce more. This dishes reminds me of my mummy. She always prepared steamed lady fingers for us. For the sauce, we just dip with the normal soy sauce which normally found in supermarket.

Kapitan Chicken
You gonna add another bowl of rice after tastes the kapitan chicken. This dishes has brought out the taste of Nyonya - the chicken was not too spicy and the gravy was nice to mix with white rice. Highly recommended for this dishes.

Sambal Goreng
YES! This is sambal goreng. Debbie told us that sambal is not supposedly only spicy and red in color. Some kaffir lime leaves, "belimbing assam", prawns, chestnut, chillies and coconut milk to prepared this dishes. It was my first time tried the Nyonya style sambal goreng. This is so-authentic!!

Hu Pio Soup
(Fish Maw Soup with Prawn Balls)

Normally, this dishes will be prepared during Chinese New Year or wedding. The soup taste good with the great ingredients in the soup. What we had in the soup? prawns balls, fish maw, cabbage, carrots & jicama. It was our pleasure to try this soup although it was just a food tasting session :)

Steamed White Rice
Don't miss out this!! All the yummylicious dishes should pair with a bowl of white rice and I'm sure you will add another bowl :)
