Food Review

Kenny’s Delight: Nyonya Food

Warning: Long post ahead with food.

It’s my first time to attend a review on invitation alone. XD Before this, I used to go food review with my mentor (Jasonmumbles) or I went and reviewed myself without invitation (self-invite) Hahaha

Do you know this two? Yes, they are the famous duo from Baba Nyonya show and Nasi Lemak 2.0. The one on the right is Kenny Chan who happens to be the Main Chef and Owner of the nyonya restaurant, Kenny’s Delight I’m visiting.

It’s an awesome chance for me to meet a celebrity especially one I grew up watching.

So last weekend, I grabbed a non blogger friend of mine who happened to stay nearby the restaurant to go with me. Usually, people will go and greet the owner before hand but the inexperienced me went there, sat down and ordered like everyone else. XD It could be both a good and bad move to do.

Bad as the owner/chef might have already prepare something special for you, a new dish to try or something. The good is you can taste something everyone else is tasting.

Here’s what we ordered…

The Nyonya Cendol is good. The cendol gave a very nice chewy experience, not as hard as those conventional cendols found elsewhere and I like the small mushy red bean very much. It kinda reminds me of the Cendol in Kuching and the one here do not comes with Gula Melaka too which usually overkill the great coconut milk taste.

Next, we had…

I heard from the Malaccan friend that this is a very traditional Nyonya dish/dessert. It’s a type of rice noodle served with sugar water. Initially, I thought it might turned out to be very sweet but to my surprise it’s not which is good. (I’m not a sweet loving person). The only taste comes from the pink/white rice noodles.

I ordered the Nyonya Laksa as it is a  famous nyonya dish. At first, I thought it to be Asam Laksa like the one in Jonker street but turned out it was Lemak Laksa, a variant of Curry Laksa. My friend told me this is the real Nyonya Laksa and the Asam Laksa is more of a Penang Laksa.

The laksa was served with sliced eggs, boiled egg and fried prawns. Yep, fried prawns. The prawns were fried before served, it’s so crispy, I actually ate it with its shell. Then I took the first sip of the soup/gravy. It was soo rich with coconut milk. It’s like…

hahaha okay abit over but really it was rich.

I ordered my laksa with Bee Hoon which is a bad decision as the Bee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli) soaked up all the gravy and I became bloated after only eaten half bowl. Word of advice: Do not order this with Cendol. It might be too much coconut milk for one to handle. 

I think it would be nice if they can have another option of thick Bee Hoon other than thin Bee Hoon and yellow noodle. The one that doesn’t soak up the gravy too much. Then again, that would turned out to be not original. ^^”

My friend in the other hand ordered this…

Okay.. Mee Siam.. they all taste alike

that’s what I thought..

but… This is really really good!!! *cross my fluffy heart*

I tried quite a lot of Mee Siam from around Melaka over the years here and they all tasted almost the same; dead sweet, sour and a bit spicy. The Mee Siam here is very different, there’s this bean paste flavor in it. It gave another level of taste to it. A must order if you’re here!!  :D My friend who can never finished a plate of rice actually finished the whole plate. @@

Siamese Beans Kap!!!

After our meal, I went and greet the Chef, Mr Kenny Chan himself. He was so surprised to found out I already ordered and finished eating. Hahaha… He actually thought of preparing something special like for me to try. I felt kinda bad after hearing that. ^^”

Then, he asked us to try this Rendang Chicken, a new dish that yet to be in the menu. I accepted the offer since he said it’s gonna be a small portion but turned out to be a full plate of..

Nevertheless, we tried it…and..

it was my-image-and-word-indescribable especially the Rendang Chicken.

The moment we scooped the Rendang and put in our mouth. We paused and looked at each other with a smile and kept nodding our heads. XD hahaha..the scene was very funny.

And the next thing we know, we already emptied the whole plate despite the fact I was bloated earlier from the Laksa and my friend had a very small tummy to begin with. XD

I do not know how to describe the taste. It was just there, right at the spot. Even now, my friend kept bugging me to bring her go there again for the Rendang. ^^” Let’s just hope Mr Kenny will faster include this Rendang Chicken dish in his menu. XD

. . . .

Oh in case, you wanna try this restaurant, the info is all here, Kenny’s Delight. They currently situated at Jalan Laksamana Cheng Ho (a.k.a. Jalan Panjang) somewhere near Bukit Cina or the Hang Li Po’s Well area. MAP.

No worries if you have problem finding them as the restaurant will move to Melaka Raya (right opposite Library Pub) in end of March under the name, Big Nyonya.

Do keep an eye for it ^^

Oh here’s a picture of Mr Kenny Chan himself (not in Nyonya costume) and someone I asked to pretend to be me.

Oh, remember the video I share earlier? It seems like there’s a sequel or second trailer to it O_o

Farewell YellowBoy – DG Smart Plan Finale Post

GoodBye DG Smart Plan - BlackBerry Unlimited

GoodBye DG Smart Plan - BlackBerry Unlimited-1

GoodBye DG Smart Plan - BlackBerry Unlimited-2

Remember the BlackBerry I mentionend lately? Its actually not mine. Hahaha… ( How I wish its mine). Its a review unit, I got to play with and review for a month. This happens to be my first review project and it was quite a fun experience as the review item was really good and interesting.

The BlackBerry with DG Smart Plan. This plan is really cheap in my opinion, just RM58/ month and the coverage, speed and connectivity stability was really unexpectedly good.

You can try the Plan out for a few months and tested it out.  :) Or if you have any questions, you may just refer to @DiGi_Telco at Twitter or visit their Facebook.

I gonna miss the BlackBerry very much..

GoodBye DG Smart Plan - BlackBerry Unlimited-3

DiGi Smart Plan – BlackBerry Unlimited Love

BB Love story

Most of you guys know that I got my Blackberry not long ago from the YellowBoy.

The BlackBerry indeed is a fun device. Its like having a netbook in your hand basically do all most anything you can like a netbook.

There is this application called BlackBerry App World, which you can download all sort of applications for your BlackBerry. Applications that you’re familiar like Twitter, Facebook, Opera browser, Google map, Google, MSN messenger can be easily downloaded to your BlackBerry. There are others interesting applications like Foursquare and BlackBerry Messenger.

.

As for me, I use my BlackBerry on

BBTwitter

most of the time.

There is this UberTwitter application for BlackBerry which really makes tweeting very easy. With BlackBerry integrated system, it enables you just tweet away from your other folders in your BlackBerry or even your camera which I find very convenient.

With DiGi Smart Plan, I can just tweet as much photo as I like without worrying about both the size of the image and cost of it as the DiGi Smart Plan provides an unlimited access to the internet and uploading the photo took less than a minute with my EDGE powered BlackBerry.

If you guess wonder what is twitter is about. Its like a social media where you share your thoughts and say to anyone who follows your tweet. Pretty fun when you follow a bunch of awesome tweeters. :D

.

The other application I like is this

BBM Luv

Its a messaging application exclusively for BlackBerry Users. BlackBerry users can use the messenger to text each other FREE of charge (must have a data plan for this application to work, Ex. DiGi Smart Plan).

So if you sign up with the DiGi Smart Plan and you use this messenger to text your friends instead of SMS over the month, you only need to pay a fee of RM58 at the end of that month for the data service. (If you don’t make any calls) :)

That’s not it, you can even send photos and files over the messenger ^^.

.

The application that makes me love this device is..

BB browser

Yeah, just a basic browser!

Why? Because I do almost all my searching and reading with it. I can read to news, blogs and also search for any information I needed when I’m outside. With DiGi Smart Plan, it’s an unlimited access!!

And with that, I can do the thing I love the most…

BB Youtube

Youtube~~ Love love~~ Bo beep bo beep~~

Hahaha… Seriously it was fun streaming on the phone. And since me and my colleague are very obsessed on Kpop lately, we always stream MV during lunch hour over the BlackBerry.

At first I thought the streaming will be slow as the BlackBerry Curve 8520 supports up to EDGE speed only but turns out the streaming was smoother than I thought. Most of the time I just stream without waiting for buffering.

The coverage was good too, I was able to get full bar of network reception most of the time and EDGE speed in major cities area because the YellowBoy keep following you wherever you are, providing the best coverage to you.

DiGi Coverage

They will even follow you to the most “Hazard” place and provide you with the coverage you needed.

Nothing will stop them. XD Hahaha..

DiGi Coverage-1

Even this… XD
