Ma Ma Nyonya Food, Taman Molek

Normally when talk about Nyonya cuisine, the first idea we will think about the origin which is from Malacca but actually it is not just in Malacca but also in Singapore too! So there are some from Singapore bring the Nyonya cuisine to the neighboring city which is Johor Bahru.
Some Nyonya kuih-muih for you to choose to take away or dine in. Every piece is sold at RM1.50. Not cheap at all.
Pulut Tatar which is best accompanied with their homemade delicious kaya. It is a glutinous rice with coconut milk and Butterfly-pea flower which makes the color blue. The flower is also being used in making Nasi Kerabu. The flower name in Malay is called Bunga Telang.
Kapitan Chicken @RM16.80
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - To be honest, this is the best among all dishes I have ordered because of the curry with full of coconut milk taste in it and it is not too spicy. The chicken meat is not too hard to chew. Very soft and just a few bites you can swallow them easily. Good for old folks.

Cincalok/Onion Omelette @RM10.80
Outlook: 1/5
Creativity: 1/5
Taste: 1/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 1/5 - Worst of all. Salty and pricey! Just onion and eggs cost you more than RM10. 

Sweet Potato Leave Sambal @RM12.80
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - The sweet potato leave and the sambal somehow doesn't blend well. I just do not taste any spiciness in it. 

Ruby @RM3.80
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Not sure what is the red color thingy is made of. But the yellow color is the jackfruit. Still ok but it is not a must try.

Mama Cendol @RM3.80
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The brown sugar is pretty unique taste of their own and that's the highlight of this cendol. Others are pretty common especially the green cendol jelly itself is too big and hard.

Overall, I do believe they may be the best place to have a Nyonya cuisine if you are craving for one in Johor Bahru but definitely they are not the serving for the best Nyonya cuisine that I have tasted so far.

Total Damage: RM52.50
Ambiance: 3/5
Service: 3/5
Food Serving Speed: Very Fast
