Auntie Aini Cafe Nilai
It was lovely experience to have a chance to lunch at Aunty Aini’s “Secret Garden” Cafe out here in Nilai under the invitation of Chef Norman Musa who is currently back in Kuala Lumpur for his cookery espionage. It was an hour drive out from the city on a chilled down Saturday morniing that brought us to this fabulous and beautiful garden. Auny Aini is a famous self-taught cook who specialised in the “Minang” cooking. Her favourite dishing out cooking would be fresh turmeric coconut cream “Masak Lemak” based dishes.
