Cavalock and The Nyonya Dinner Insolation

Mind-blowing lamb shanks done Nyonya style was the promise and Sri Nyonya was the destination. All seven of us Uber-ed and Grab-ed our way to the middle of nowhere in Petaling Jaya Kuala Lumpur that evening and was duly rewarded with some truly excellent home cooked Nyonya dishes.

Apparently the prized lamb shank is a house specialty that ain't on the menu and is something you gotta order in advance. And since one of the guys drops by at least a couple times a year to the restaurant, he kinda knows the old folks behind it and was able to make the call. As tender and tasty as I hoped it would be.

Everything else that came before and after that was great too. So this has got to be one of the most quaint eating joints that I have ever been too. Old photos, furniture and deco that reminded me of my old family home. Wish I could show more interior pix than food pix but there are people in the pix that may or may not take too kindly to me posting them.

I can't get enough of the dessert. Traditional chendol with I believe just the pandan green jelly noodles, coconut milk and gula melaka. None of that other red beans or fancy stuff. Then there's the exquisite spongy gula melaka cake. You see eight pieces and there were seven of us, guess who had the last piece? :)

Now the above first pix was taken before dinner and after dinner when we stepped out, the entire surrounding area was cloaked in freakin' pitch darkness. Except for a minimart further down that lonely stretch, the restaurant was only light source around. It really makes sense to Uber or Grab your way around KL cos no way you gonna wave a cab down in this part of town.

Oh, and speaking of the old family home, here's a look at our new "old" DB box or distribution board box. Renovation is almost done and I hope to post more pix real soon.
