One night while on the way to the usual SS2 square for dinner, we spotted the “Fresh Coconut Asam Prawn” banner under the Nyonya Restaurant with a pretty appetizing picture of the said dish. Having not a clue on what to eat, I decided to try out the place.

cleaned and air conditioned environment with simple deco

The place serves traditional Nyonya food, chicken, vege, seafood, and also including several different types of kuih. The setting is pretty clean and comfortable, with simple no-fuss decoration that creates a pretty decent dining environment.

the fresh coconut asam prawn and petai with dried oyster

As there was only two of us, I decided to try the advertised asam prawn, and the sambal petai with dried oyster to go with rice. The asam prawn came in a fresh coconut but the serving wasn’t very big, in total there were perhaps half a dozen medium to big size prawns. Basil leaves, pineapple cubes, and brinjal are the other main ingridients that makes up this pretty decent dish.

The sambal petai was absolutely delightful. Stinky petai with some good size dried oysters fried in sambal with onion. It was pretty spicey but goes down very well with rice. I just wished the serving was larger though.

are you feeling hungry? *droolssss*

The dinner cost about RM 50 for two, which was a little on the high side. It is a nice place to bring diners who likes to try local food in a nice, quiet and clean environment, such as your mother in law or that European friend of yours. If it’s just me, I’ll go for the Asam Prawn at Kelana Jaya instead.
