This & That Including What Ails

Nonya Treats@M’s Place

on June 28, 2015

After my walkabout through Electrical Lord’s assets, I landed up at Chong Boon Hawker Center, along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10.

Lunch time and I had my family with me except mum. She had visitors at home.

Lunch menu was exciting as there were lots of yummy eats to choose from.

Bak Kut Teh, claypot Pork Trotters, Hokkien noodles….the best choice of the day for my bro and dad was Kway Chap.

Kway Chap is a plate for 2 comprising mixed items like a hard boiled egg cooked in soua sauce, pig intestines, pork, doufu and pig skin braised in soya sauce served with a bowl each of flat white noodles.

Reasonably priced at $7 for 2 pax. Dad said the chilli was spicy and vinegary which matched the food perfectly.

I settled on a bowl of doufu curds without sugar! I was saving for a bite of nonya kuehs at M’s place after.

I had also asked her to kindly boil barley water for me.

In the center is ondeh ondeh – little balls of sweet potato flour wrapped over gula melaka or brown sugar and rolled over freshly grated coconut.

The wedges of green pandan chiffon cake was soft and springy. Literally, you can squeeze it and compress it into a ball and eat it. My favorite!

The green long spring roll is actually kueh dadah made of a crepe like texture wrapping coconut shreds cooked in gula melaka.

The yellow pieces that you see in the photo I took is Kueh Bengkar – tapioca cake.

It is always fun to catch up with M and her family.

It was my weekend therapy before I start my hectic Monday again!

Thanks you kindly for a lovely afternoon tea of nonya delights M 🙂
