Nyonya Colours, Bukit Tinggi

Having noticed that their outlet in 1U was doing so well, decided to try their branch in Aeon Bukit Tinggi when I spotted it.

The decor is quite pleasant with colourful tiles and mosaic and the hand painted stools.

The Bubur ChaCha, available on Friday and weekends only. Had lots of ingredients, and quite a fair bit of coconut milk. All kinds of sweet potatoes, yam, beans and chewy sago-like-consistency bits.

Hak Lo Mai or Black Glutinous Rice dessert. Very tummy warming but also very starchy and filling, so I couldn’t finish it in the end. What a pity…

Can’t remember the name of this kueh, but it’s similar to Put Zai Kou, just the salty version which tasted ok. Would have enjoyed it more if it was heated up I think.

Otak-otak. It was served to me cold, which was probably why I couldn’t really enjoy it. I prefer it warmed up at least so that I won’t feel jelak with the creaminess of the coconut milk.

The Mee Jawa was better than I expected. Blanched noodles with bean curd, bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, potatoes and prawn cucur. The cucur dipped in the thick gravy was yum.

Nasi Kunyit with Curry Chicken. They were quite generous as the curry chicken had 3 big chunks of chicken in it. Very creamy and went quite well with the turmeric rice.

Nasi Lemak Pandan with Chicken Rendang. The rice was lightly tinted green by the pandan juice which didn’t really added much flavour to the rice. It was fragrant alright, but i thought normal Nasi lemak was also cooked with knotted pandan leaves and coconut milk. Served with the chicken, sambal, ikan bilis, peanuts, mango kerabu, half a hard boiled egg and some cucumber slices. I thought the kerabu was a nice touch but I’m probably biased coz I love all types of kerabu. Decent, but nothing spectacular overall.

Desserts were good but as most of the food here is pre-cooked and heated up before serving, I can only deduce that its popularity is due to the wide range of Nyonya kueh they have and for convenience’s sake. Even then, some of the kuehs are overpriced in my opinion. But when you take into the account that the location is in a shopping complex, i.e. higher overhead costs, the prices are justified. I haven’t tried most of them as I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but couldn’t resist the onde-onde on a separate occasion and it was quite good. Bit on the small side though πŸ˜›

    Nyonya colors also in The Gardens right?
    they’re everywhere.

    but I cant bring myself to try, as RM1 for such a small piece of nyonya kuih is expensive!!!!

    maybe someday …. but i’ll go for the mains instead …

    epicuriousgirl says: yup, they’re expanding quite fast. i guess their overhead is also much higher than your usual outside kuih stall hence the higher price tag.
