O'nya Sayang

When the word of Peranakan cuisine comes to mind, the first dish that I thought is their Ayam Buah Keluak, which unfortunately, not my dish.

So, after couple of times passing this open concept restaurant at basement area, I stopped by to look on their menu and surprisingly, there were other comfort foods that seem may appeal to non Peranakan fans.

We decided to give it a try, it was quite casual arrangement; there was a menu on every table with an order sheet. We filled in the order and brought it to the cashier counter.

Was not sure whether it was only around that shift period but I noticed, the waiting staff was elderly ladies but with good spoken English and one or two young adults. I always support any establishment who is willing to hire the senior citizens, by seeing this during our visit, I would certainly return for more.

The dishes and drinks certainly had that home made touch, it was satisfyingly good, attended by courteous and friendly 'aunties' (at least, that how I felt when being served by the staff) 

I loved every dishes we ordered and with such affordable prices for home cooked meals, it is a good option compared to other fast foods found in the mall.

It surely warrants many future trips from us after our first meal.

Very 'Peranakan' style partition, entrance to the dining area

Simple table and seats
The cashier counter, brought the ordering sheet to the counter for payment and your order tag
Simple idea but so befitting the 'Peranakan' theme
The traditional style tile
Fan shaped tag no
The sambal and archer, nice delicious archar/pickles
Home made chin chow
Recommended to try it as it was a nice cooling drink
Luo Han Guo drink with Longan

It was such a refreshing drink 
Sambal Kang Kong
It was cooked nicely albeit slightly oily
The Ngo Hiang
This was the thinnest version I've ever eaten
It was nice but I wish it was made as the normal version which has more filling 
The Bakwan Kepiting Soup 
This crab meat balls cooked as soup was certainly a nice soup, with a good clear broth
All these delicious dishes must be accompanied by a plate of rice indeed
