A Sneak Preview Of My First Menu - "Malaysian Monday 93"

Finally my menu is ready and this is a sneak preview of what's on offer. I will reveal the full menu in the next few days so please stay tuned!

Meanwhile please come say hello to me at Little Nyonya @ rear of building 818 Burke Street, shop 2. All 3 hungry tummies readers and blogger friends will enjoy a 20% discount if you mention the magic words - 3 hungry tummies that is! See you then!

P.S above is ayam goreng sos bunga kantan (crispy chicken with ginger flower sauce).

Announcement! - I officially left my job on the 10th of August 2013 having spent almost 10 months cooking the food that I know and love best. Unfortunately the lack of support from skilled staff and management's direction (or lack of direction)  for the restaurant have made my job untenable. 

It is all good on my end; my new job does not required me to work on nights or weekends and it is only a 10 minute bike ride from home leaving me plenty of time to cook and blog again! 

Assam pedas (spicy fish stew with eggplant and okra).

Kerabu betik muda (Nyonya style green papaya salad, pan seared quails with tamarind and chili glaze)

Ayam goreng Nyonya (chicken first poached in an aromatic coconut sauce then deep fried and served with the reduced poaching liquor and achar).

Sambal terong goreng (fried eggplant with homemade dried shrimp sambal)

Sambal bendi (blanched okras with homemade dried shrimp sambal).

Sambal sotong (calamari and green beans stir fried with a spicy and tangy sauce).

Ikan bakar (baked fish with sambal and lemon wrapped in banana leaf)
