We came in a big group of 23 family members and friends on an organised pre-Chinese New Year shopping trip to Malacca. With most of us having a Perenakan background, it was a no-brainer to be here for our lunch stop. Restaurant was crowded, unsurprising considering its reputation. Staff were busy throughout bringing out dish after dish after dish. We started with kueh pie tee which didn't come with prawns, so that seemed a little odd. But the rest of the meal was lovely. I especially enjoyed the cinchalok (shrimp paste) egg omelette, which I hadn't had for a long time, and the sambal prawn. What was interesting was that the Chinese tea came infused with pandan leaves which gave it a mild scent, not easily detectable. So, overall, quite an authentic and satisfying meal - just don't tell my Perenakan aunts who had a fun time dissecting the good and bad about every dish.
