Best Nyonya Kuih in PJ

Written by Updated ago

If you ask any Malaysian or Singaporean what they would like to have for tea, they would probably say Nyonya Kuih. If you are not familiar with the term, it is actually a selection of small desserts and munchies instigated by a Southeast Asian community – the Peranakan folks. Which leads us to the next question – who are the Peranakan people? This community were once a part of Malaysia and Singapore and the men is called as Baba while the women are referred to as Nyonya. What makes them unique is that they are basically Chinese people who embraced local cultures (Malay) into their lifestyle which includes language, fashion and architecture.

    Pulut Tekan is one of the famous Nyonya Kuih in Malaysia and you can enjoy a full plate of it here at Little Mums by Mum’s Place. The hint of beautiful blue hues in the pulut tekan is actually from ‘bunga telang’ and not from additives food colouring. That definitely manage to attract customers’ attention. This dish has been the crowd’s favourite due to its delightful homemade Kaya. Just by the colour of it, you can tell that the Kaya is not some cheap kaya sold at the supermarket. Its smooth texture and not-to-sweet flavour goes well with the pulut and make you fall in love with the dish instantly.

    Tips

    Limited parking space and full house during peak hours.

    Things to expect

    Peranakan delicacies with an extra level of spiciness.

    This family-run business offers a variety of Nyonya sweet delicacies using recipes that have been passed down from one generation to another. Savoury Pumpkin Angku is one of the bestselling items offered at this petite stall. The ‘kuih’ is made of sticky rice flour cake with a different type of fillings, in this case - Pumpkin. All of the Nyonya Kuih served here are homemade including Chiffon Cakes, Assorted Puffs, Yam Cake, and many others. The fact that they are using natural colouring, natural flavours and no preservatives, is probably one of the main reasons why their items are always quickly sold out.

    Tips

    Come early because the items served are quickly sold out.

    Things to expect

    Delightful homemade Nyonya Kuih made using family's recipes.

    A’Han Nyonya Kuih

    As a family run business for decades, this shop is well known among the PJ neighbourhood. The interior of the shop is simple and not much of a décor. The concept is also straightforward – walk in, selects your favourite ‘kuih’, pay, and leave. The sweet delicacies offered here are a bit expensive but with the good, tasty and consistent flavours, it is value for money. Some of the highlights of this shop include the Pulut Tai Tai (blue-tinged glutinous rice served with coconut jam/kaya) and Rempah Udang/Pulut Udang (a savoury mix of spicy dried shrimps and grated coconut stuffed into glutinous rice roll, then wrapped with banana leaf).

    Tips

    Come early to avoid disappointments. Their 'kuih' are sold out pretty quickly.

    Things to expect

    A simple and humble shop that provides up to 20 selections of Nyonya Kuih.

Not only these little gems are pretty to look at with range of appealing colours and shapes but they taste absolutely amazing. It’s something uncommon looking at patrons leaving the restaurant empty handed, thanks to this delicious kuihs
