[Kuala Lumpur] Nyonya Cuisine from 'Baba Can Cook', Intermark

klyeoh | Feb 4, 201504:15 AM    

This small eatery ensconced in the basement of the swish Intermark mall, which also includes Doubletree by Hilton, serves some of the most authentic Southern-Nyonya eats in KL.

Not a surprise, since it's a joint venture between Malaysian actor, Alan Yun, and his godparents, Uncle John and his wife, Malaysian TV chef-Nyonya cookbook writer Florence Tan.

What we tried:

- Kueh Pie Tee: very light and crisp pastry shells here.

- Ayam Pongteh: very home-cooked flavours here - slow-braised to let the "taucheo" (fermented beanpaste) and spices seep into the meat. The potatoes and mushrooms lent extra textures to the dish.

- Sambal Terung: perfectly-cooked purple-skinned brinjals, smothered with spicy sambal belachan and dried shrimps.

- Nyonya Nasi Goreng: spicy fried rice, topped with a wedge of soft egg omelette. It complemented the other dishes.

- Peranakan Ale: gingery soda, slightly sweet and perfect to douse the fire from the spicy Nyonya dishes.

Baba Can Cook offers a limited amount of Melaka Nyonya Laksa on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and Mee Siam on Tuesdays and Thursday - but they tend to sell out quickly during lunch-time. They are closed Sundays.
