Chatz

PARKROYAL Kuala Lunppur this time teams up with Chef Debbie Teoh to bring the Nyonya dellight for our dining pleasure and experience throught lavish biffets, interactive cooking classes for kids and a la carte selections of Chef Debbie’s creations. When the word Nyonya cuisine speaks to my mind, my wildest imagination was reflected onto many delicious and flavoursome dishes like Tamarind Prawns, Chicken Kapitan, Otak-otak. Ikan Peruk, Ayam Buah Keluak and many more.

Pie Tee

We were lucky that night as we were invited to dine wth the star, Chef Debbie Teoh. Having crisp pastry casing filled with stir fried crab meat and finely sliced yam bean was definitely a hit for all of us, the diners. Pie Tee, I had four of them. I was truly convinced. How can she do it? Yes she definitely know the way to work into my taste and desire of good food. . . . . bravo to the chef!

Hu Pio Soup
Hu Pio Soup

In my imagination of Nyoonya food would be encased with slight fresh herbs in taste and fragrantness, slightly hot and a hint of light spiceness. The next dish was the one, a Hu Pio Soup, a fish maw soup cooked in nyonya way. I was informed that this soup will be served during festive season and a must in every nyonya kitchen. I just love how Debbie infused the soup with homemade prawn balls and cabbage, carrot and chicken stock. It was refreshing in taste, does give a real kick!!!.

Salted Fish Sambal

“Now, now behave my diners”, I told my neighbours from left to right as I laugh to myself. They were excited with Debbie’s Salted Fish Sambal, so was myself but I kept my silence. It was really good, I would have them in a seal jar and take in home safely tucked into my fridge. Innocent me. I like how she played with taste and flavours, It truly did a good justice in preparing a chuck of salt fish meat like Kurau fish soaked into a home pound chili paste. Debbie it was really good, it infused into the my bowl of white rice without any of doubt. Beautifully imagine.

Sambal Goreng

Sambal Goreng, stir fried chilli paste, a unique name but yet it was a greyish dish, not red at all. I was left with a surprised. It was not hot either. Cleverlly churned by Debie this old time delightful dish using shrimps and a slight hint lemongrass, shallot, garlic, cashwetnut, green chilies and thick coconut milk. It was fabulous, tasty and flavoursome.

Kapitan Chicken
Kapitan Chicken

I just love the nyonya curry called Kapitan Chicken. It had been my family request whenever we dine out at any Nyonya Restaurant. A dish filled with fresh turmeric, candlenuts, shrimp paste and red chili paste that can play into your mind without any hesistation. Here Debbie cooked it so deliciously well! I like it! 😉

Steamed Lady Fingers

I love Debbie’s Steamed Lady Fingers, tenderly soft in texture but what makes it so deifferent would br her sauces, I just love her sweet hinted taramind sauce with a wee bit hotness in it. Kudos to Chef, fabulously done! Just filled with simplicity!

O'giou Jelly

I like this scraped ice topped with kalimansi jelly. It was such a good way to finish the meal. Limey with a touch elegance in taste. Lovely.

Seri Muka

If I see Debbie, this dessert called Seri Muak will filled me with smile. I was soft, silky and smooth and yet with a hint of sweetnes, definitely on of my most desireable dessert list. VERY irresistable! . . . . . I truly had an awesome taste of Nyonya from remarkable Chef Debbie, you must try them too!
