Kuih-ing at Nyonya Colors

Walking aimlessly in The Gardens, my valuable weekend was not filled with any beneficial activities. I refused to leave as I was waiting for my nerves to detect the impulse of hunger. As I walked to the lower ground floor of The Gardens, my eyes began to feel hungry. Yes, you're right! I'm saying that my eyes were feeling hungry. The lower ground floor is basically a food street where restaurants and eateries of almost all types of cuisine can be found here. I had always wanted to dine at Tony Roma's but I discovered that there wasn't a soul when I inched my feet near the main entrance of the restaurant. I did not like to be given too much attention for I would be the only customer should I decide to eat there. Hence I looked around and saw a crowd-pulling eatery on the other side. Hmm... since I'd not try the food at Nyonya Colors, why not give it a try?

  1. Hi Ming, nice blog you have. And I love your stylish eloquence too.
    I have always loved Nyonya food, reason being my mom was one, 5 generations, with some pirates and opium smugglers genes mixed around somewhere.
    By the way, this place in Taiping?

    I used to go to Taiping on business, wayyy back in the '70s. And remember that main road with a big tree, next to it a coffee shop with a store selling the best pop pia this side of the Suez Canal....
    And Taiping Lake Gardens, that old, colonial restaurant and coffee shop...yes, Taiping brings back memories....

    You have a pleasant week and keep a song in your heart, best regards, Lee.
