Next, we are served with the Roasted Duck with the Ginger Herbal Soup where the soup is full of frangrance of the roasted duck with a slight salty taste with it. The soup is reallyy delighting which is alike mum’s cooking from the kitchen. The duck soup also serves with a slight spiciness and it is really flavorful.

We also tried the chicken satay which is well made as well. I just love the satay where it is served with the tender chicken meat and being grilled till perfectionist.The satay is simply good to be served together with the peanut sauce which comes together with it.

Next is the Nasi Kunyit with Nyonya Ayam Rendang where the meal is simply good and it is loaded with the herbs and spices which makes the dis perfect. The yellow glutinous rice is nice too which well accompanied with the chicken rendang.

Another dish which is not to be missed is the Nyonya Laksa which is a thumb up. The chef had made a good job where the laksa is well made with the flavorful taste of the fragrant brooth. It is well accompanied together with the slices of minced chicken as well as prawns with it.
