We were invited by our good friend - actor, model, entrepreneur and restaurateur Alan Yun to his newly opened Nyonya restaurant - Tranquerah @ Red Carpet Avenue, The Strand Encorp recently. Alan Yun also co-owns another restaurant - Pin Xiang in Damansara.
Alan Yun was very generous and ordered over 10 mouth-watering and appetite-whetting Nyonya dishes for my family and I to feast on. We finished almost every dish and left the restaurant feeling really satisfied *BURP*! There will surely be another round of makan at Tranquerah very soon. This time it will be with a group of my blogger friends and Alan's celebrity friends. It will be a eat-and-blog session, something which iLike!! Did I tell you that one of my secret ambitions is to become a food critic cum food writer? Oh, who does not like to get free food all the time, a reward that comes with the writing eh?
So here goes the pix of the scrumptious dishes...
Pink kebaya (watermelon, lychee, strawbery with yoghurt),
Green kebaya (Lime and apple),
White kebaya (lemon juice)
Our very first dish was Top Hat - the hat was very crispy and fresh and the turnip very delish. Every single strand of turnip was wiped off from the plate!
Ikan Cencaru Sumbat, delish!
A must-have at Tranquerah - authentic Ayam Pongteh, a traditional Nyonya chicken dish cooked with lots of shallots, herbs, spices and potatoes. Very delish! We liked this dish so much that we even 'ta pau' the left over sauce home, tee hee hee!
Sambal stinky beans aka petai with prawns.
Gerang Asam Fish, another lip smacking dish
Kerabu cucumber and Cencaluk egg omelette
Deep fired crispy sotong rings, very delish too
Cendol with shaved ice and gula melaka and fresh santan. Top notch taste, love the fragrant gula melaka. Really sinful delight!!
Bubur chacha, very rich with lots of aromatic gula melaka and fresh santan, perfect for those with a sweet tooth..
Mee Siam - this dish is a signature dish of one of the local celebrity chefs...
Check out the assortment of decades-old Nyonya style window frames hanging high up on the ceiling
Traditional batik print moulds attached to the wall as decor.
