Kau Kau

Brunch for two at Nyonya Color, Midvalley Mall.  

Nasi Lemak Beef Rendang - MYR13.75 nett. We have eaten this here a few times but this dish has never appeared here. I must have missed writing about it. A decent nasi lemak. The portion of rice is much smaller than a few years ago.

My favourite roti jala (was mentioned here previously) - soft and doughy. Roti Jala with Curry Chicken - MYR11.60 nett. There are two pieces of chicken in the curry - a whole drumstick and a small piece of thigh meat on bone with some potatoes. The curry is on the salty side. I wish they would just sell me the roti jala without the curry chicken because I could just eat those on their own.

We also ordered a glass of hot Teh Tarik (Pulled Milk Tea) - MYR3.70 nett and requested for it to be "kurang manis" (less sweet) and "kau kau"  (to be thick with a heavier tea taste). Total price: MYR29.05 nett.

All the Nyonya kuihs (minimum price is MYR1.17 nett for a small piece) in the glass shelves are calling to me but with limited stomach space, I could only look at them sadly because it was either them or roti jala and the latter won.

    1. In BM, roti means bread and jala means net. This is because when you unroll the roti jala, it has lots of holes like a fishing net.

  4. Haha. Roti jala is better and tempting than the nyonya kuih. Lol.

    Nasi lemak any day for me. And I also love my teh tarik just like yours.

    1. What is an "agency brunch"? I don't work for an agency. I only ate the roti jala and one drumstick. The other piece of chicken meat I gave to my friend. Roti jala is very light, not heavy at all so I can finish eating all 5 rolls.

  10. I noticed from your postings that you are quite a small eater. I've only dined at Nyonya Colours once. Somehow I dont really like it there and prefer Penang Flavours (in 1U) but I don't know if they are still as good as I have not been there for quite some time now.

  12. Wahhh.. really not cheap for a piece of kueh hor? That day I just didn't want to look at the price, if I did, I would end up eating less than what I have ordered... hahahaa...

  13. oh I thought at first glance those yellow rolls were bread but in closer image it seems like a rolled omelet , dough or pasta or something.. it looks great though

  14. We had Nyonya Colors in KLIA 2 and it wasn't nice at all. My better half told me it's nicer outside the airport so maybe it's just the kitchen at the airport branch.
