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.
We walked in and were suitably impressed with its simple yet tasteful décor which reminded me of my late grandmother’s kitchen.
|we didnt't know|
|this was going to be...|
|our first and last time here|
|memories from the past|
We ordered the 2Sambal Sotong Petai, 3Chicken Pongteh, Nyonya 4Chap Chai and omelet.
2squid fried with a mixture of red chilli, garlic, shallot, and petal (parkia speciosa)
3chicken fried with a mixture of shallot, garlic, minced salted bean paste (taucu), gula melaka (palm sugar) and dark soya sauce
4vegetable mixture of wood ear fungus, dried shiitake mushrooms and dried soya beans sheets stir-fried with pounded garlic, scallion (white part cut into rings) and preserved soya bean (tau cheong)

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