It will be about a week before my next posting..So here's one before leaving to KL tomorrow..!!
Nyonya Food is considered a popular cuisine in Malaysia..Nyonya Food originated from the Baba and Nyonya Era, when it was during the Japanese Invasion in our country, Malaysia..
The Nyonya's during that time are well known for their cooking skills as they are responsible to cook delicious food for their husbands, the Baba's..

Nyonya Breeze brings a wide selection of Nyonya dishes..and located around office and town area..The restaurant are always packed with customers at all times..especially during
weekends..Recently, when my dear friend Sandra came back from KL, I recommended Nyonya Breeze to she was in the mood for some Nyonya Food..

Kari Kapitan

Kari Kapitan ( Up Closed )

This is one of my favourite dish..!! Kari Kapitan is made up of thicked savoury curry chicken, coconut milk, kaffir lime leaves and lime juice..

It has a sweet and salty gravy..the spiciness are mild and it is slightly creamy..For those who is not able to take spicy food..they are recommended to order the Kari Kapitan..
The sweet and tender chicken makes is easy to consume..especially for children..

The small portion of the Kari Kapitan will cost only RM12.00 and the Large portion will cost RM16.80.. 

Spinach Vegetables

Apart from all the oily food..and meat..we should practice a balance diet of food..So we add on another dish which is the Spinach Vegetables also known as Bayam in Malay..

Egg Belanda ( Up Closed )

Now here is a dish which Nyonya Breeze customers should order..the Egg Belanda..

Egg Belanda is prepared by adding fried eggs to a sweet and sour gravy of tamarind extract,onions and chillies..It is then finished off with sprinkles of deep fried onions..
Although there are chillies in one of the ingredients..the dish does not taste spicy at all..just sweet and sour..

The Egg Belanda will cost RM3.60 per plate of two eggs, additional charges will be charged for extra eggs..

Potato Sago

Potato Sago

For desserts..we decided to order the Potato Sago..which is also known as Huan Chu Sago in Hokkien..
The potatoes tasted sweet and I love the chewy Sago which is the transparent round jelly..
Their dessert changes everyday..So be sure to ask the waiter for the dessert of the day..!


As for and mum ordered the Crysanthemum which costs RM1.30 per glass, another two drinks are the Ginger Tea ( RM 2.00 ) and Nutmeg ( RM2.00 )..
