After checking into our budget hotel we wandered around the vicinity looking for a place to have lunch and chanced upon a quaint little restaurant selling 1Nyonya dishes.

1Straits-born Chinese

We walked in and were suitably impressed with its simple yet tasteful décor which reminded me of my late grandmother’s kitchen.

final parting shot

Like the ambience and décor, the dishes had a distinct homemade feel about it right down to the crockery and utensils.

nostalgic

As we dined, the proprietress entertained some people who were interested in the furniture and fittings. Intrigued, we asked her if she sold furniture as well. Stifling a laugh, she explained that Yeti Nyonya Delights will be closing down soon and she was hoping to dispose of all its furniture, fixtures and fittings possibly lock stock and barrel.

Ah, what a shame. This turned out to be the first and last time we got to enjoy the almost homemade wholesome dishes at Yeti Nyonya Delights.
