The Nyonya 'One' , SS2 Pasar Malam

I had come across this nyonya nasi lemak stall when I first stumbled on it at Taman Connaught's Pasar Malam (on every Wednesday) and had blogged about it back in Nov 13, 2006. Since informing me that they will be coming over to SS2 pasar malam on Mondays too soon, I have been looking forward to having my usual dose of nasi lemak and after waiting for almost a year, they have finally set up stall here in SS2 Pasar Malam recently.
Stall
Some of my pics of the rendang and chicken curry didn't turn out well. However, I would like to say that what makes this stall special are mainly two things. One is that they actually have Australian Lamb Rendang (RM5/USD1.50 a portion) if you want that as an additional side dish.
Pre packed Nasi Lemak
Secondly, what's different is that the pre-packed small packet of nasi lemak (RM1/USD0.30) has rice with only a slight hint of coconut milk and fragrance from pandan leaves. There's no egg, no cucumber, peanuts or the usual sambal that one gets. Instead, there's only one topping on it, this......
Special topping
It's a spicy delicious mixture of dried chillies, deep fried shallots, dried prawns, garlic and bits of lemongrass (I could be wrong...)! Open the packet and mixed this topping well with the rice. It's really good enough to even eat it on its own. They even sell bottles of this topping (RM10/USD3 a bottle). I've eaten the topping with normal steam rice and even on plain chee cheong fun!
Fried Chicken Drumsticks
Of course, you can still have other things if you want. Apart from the Australian Lamb Rendang, there's Portugese Chicken Curry, Chicken Rendang. There's also Fried Chicken Drumstick!
Skewered Fish Balls
For some more snacks, you can get a stick of these skewered home made fried fish ball for RM2/USD0.60 where they will sprinkle some chilli powder on it if you want it spicy. Springy and nice!
Tom Yam Vermicelli
You can also pack some Tom Yam Bee Hoon (Vermicelli), done economy style (RM2/USD0.60). No meat or vegetables but flavourful nevertheless.

To locate this stall, head towards the side where you'll pass Hong Leong Bank and then you'll see MJ Cafe. Take the left road and walk along the stalls on the left side. You should be near to this stall when you see the OSK Investment signage in the back area of that stretch. They are also at the Cheow Yang pasar malam on Thursdays. If you still can't find them, call Nyonya Leong at 016-6411851 for directions.

Ooooh! The pictures are beautiful.

These "snacks" remind me of my summers in Thailand as a child. Just about every day we'd go get breakfast and lunch from the street vendors down the road from my auntie's house.

I like having pre-packed small packet of nasi lemak ;P tho just topped with sambal... it's good! ^^

jason said...

This is something different from the usual nasi lemak. Maybe I just buy the topping then add in other condiments (customize my nasi lemak). But that have to wait till I have a kitchen. Hahahha!

tankiasu said...

Eh that's strange. They are at a pasar malam near my place too every Monday. Hmm..are they jumping ship?

UnkaLeong said...

kampungboycitygal : And which area/stall do you go to, since they are at quite a few locations?

anonymous : Wow! Looks like they are everywhere!

meiyen : Also at other locations, so not necessarily must go to SS2 to get them. Aiyah...required to consume RICE, before that never?

jason : Sure, they are not in Yulek??? Go to T. Connaught then.

judy : Beanshoots? or Beansprouts? Or do they mean the same thing?

Tummythoz said...

The Nyonya One has opened a restaurant in Sri Petaling opposite the Shell petrol station. I went there for the first time yesterday and was greatly disappointed. Their menu is very limited and exactly the same as what is offered in what you have mentioned they offer at pasar malam. While in a pasar malam setting, the variety is enough, in a restaurant it is too limited. We were there at 1.00pm for lunch and ordered pineapple fried rice and rendang. And both were not available because the food is not cooked there....Drinks also limited. Had to go to 7-11 nearby to get my kid a canned drink which they said they had run out of. Not many patrons, even at night for dinner when I pass by....They may do well in pasar malam but I guess they lack the restaurant-running ability....

Anna : Sorry to hear about your experience, I guess they need to learn/still learning.
