House speciality: Chicken Candlenut (RM10)
Chicken Candlenut is Nancy’s signature dish and this was a dish that didn’t disappoint. The dish had lemon grass in it and this gave the gravy extra “oomph!”. There’s a lot of meat in this and I could happily have eaten just white rice with the slightly spicy gravy. This was the best dish of the lot.

Pork Ponteh, RM10 (S)
Babi Ponteh, they are equally good. But we opted for Ayam Ponteh. I've never tasted any Ponteh, so I do not have much expectation but i'm totally excited about these Pontehs ever since I watch 'Little Nyonya' on TV. From the colour, I was expecting something like Bak Kut Teh, but I was wrong. The gravy was thick, and the chicken was tender. This is not spicy, just nice for kids and adults. And again rich flavour with aromatic spicies which you may want to dry up the whole bowl of gravy.

Cincalok Omelette.
A very tasty with the fermented shrimp adding a subtle dimension to the omelette.

Vegetable, RM8.00

Pai Tee. Price-RM4.50 for 5 cones (in 1 serving)
Crispy top hat case, Pai Tee is eaten together with stir-fried sengkuang, fried shallots, egg and parsley.
