When talk about Nyonya food it's remind me to someone. Who said I don't like Nyonya food? Prove me wrong! Nyonya cuisine is in my 3rd list of food hunting after Japan and Western Cuisine! SS2 is another place that I like to go for the food hunting around PJ other than Damansara Uptown. Why not? it's only 10 minute drive from my house. If I recall back, this is the 1st Nyonya Restaurant that I went around PJ.

I was been informed that Nyonya Restaurant has been renovated in August 2007. The restaurant full air-conditioning and it's make the customer feel a comfortable dining experience. They claim that they was serve a Nyonya cuisine since 1974 and of course as one of the oldest Nyonya restaurants in the Klang Valley.

Honey Chicken @ RM14.00
The meat tender and the chicken not too sweet. Quite nice but the portion too small and expensive. The chicken marinated well with honey. Can see from the picture where it's a little bit dark which is I believe that's too much honey and they fry it too long. The real honey chicken should be golden brown.

I ordered their set lunch which is came together with (choices of curry chicken / rendang beef, spicy squid, acar, soup and dessert)
It's only cost me at RM12.90.

Rendang Beef
Actually I choose curry chicken but it's came out rendang beef. WTF!
Both also I cant eat but at least chicken better than beef =.="
The rendang a little bit spicy and oily! Do not get cheated by the appearance! The meat just little and the rest is rendang sauce.

Spicy Squid
Another spicy and oily dish. For me the squid was ok ok only. It's a little bit like rubber and came in small cut but of course mix well with the "sambal".

Acar
I love it. The acar. It's a little bit sweet and it's really nice to eat it with a bowl of rice.
Not much to talk about it. Still like the my grandma homemade acar.
My grandma normally make acar from different vegetables such as carrots, cucumber, yardlong beans and cabbage and mix with the vinegar and add a little bit dried chillies.

Soup
This is not soup! It's chicken broth!

Cendol @ RM3.30
It's looks simple but tasty! I love Nyonya cendol if want to compare with mamak cendol. I still remember my last cendol that I had is during my trip to Malacca last 2month!

Like other cendol stall, this restaurant serve the shaved ice with palm sugar, cooked red beans and top it with coconut milk. The green cendol is made from pandan leaves. This green cendol all short-short one XD

Sago Gula Melaka @ RM3.30
Since I choose a set lunch, this dessert came together with the main course, The sago gula Melaka taste not failed but the sago itself failed. From the picture you can see by yourself that it's firm. So, when you had your sago, you need to bite it. I think it's just came out from fridge. From what I know the sago texture should be silky and "tender".

Our drinks
Fresh Lime @ Rm3.00, Orange Juice @ RM3.50 & Jasmine Tea @ RM1.20.

Overall I will vote:
6/10 for the service. Friendly but I order Chicken and they gave me beef. I cant eat beef. At night all my body itchy!
7/10 for the food quality and quantity of the food. One of the Nyonya restaurant that I went that serve decent Nyonya food that simple but nice.
8/10 for the environment. Cosy interior and comfortable.
