Nyonya Breeze, Penang MALAYSIA

5 Mar

(Gulai Tumis)

Friends took us for some Nyonya food as soon as we stepped out of Penang Airport (kidding).  I’ve read from a few food bloggers sites about this place.  Some bad and some good but friends tell us, it is not too bad.  Coincidentally, our last day in Penang, we went to another Nyonya restaurant called Mama (same street as Nyonya Breeze).  Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my camera along.  I prefer the atmosphere in Nyonya Breeze. Mama’s place looked gloomy during the day. The only negative thing at Nyonya Breeze is the service.  The waitress kept giving us someone else’s orders.  I mean, not once but several times.  Is this girl in her right mind to work on this day? Anyways, we loved the food. If I were to rate this place… 6/10.

Here are some dishes to savour on:

can’t remember the name of this, it’s like deep fried battered Popiah (anyone knows?)

Assam Prawns

Sambal Kacang Botol

Sambal Udang Petai

“Masak Titek” cooked with sweet potatoes and its leaves*

Dessert Sago*

*I can’t remember some of the dishes.

The “deep fried battered Popiah” which you mentioned above is probably chun pneah. Very similar to fried spring rolls but the skin is slightly thicker, there are generous filings of crab meat in addition to the usual popiah filings, and it is served with a sauce made from Lea & Perrins and cut chilli padi. Growing up in Penang, I used to patronise a stall at a coffee shop called “Song River” located along Gurney Drive, which sells excellent chun pneah, roti babi (thick slices of bread stuffed with minced pork and then deep fried with beaten egg) as well as loh bak.
