Limablas is Mesui’s representation of the quasi-Malaccan shop house. The restaurant by the name of their house number 15 along the road serves a good Nyonya delights. The Nyonya restaurant bringing me back to my younger days where we spotted lots of old items like old typewriters, dirty sacks, spice jars, rickety tables, ornate signboards, vintage posters, and rusty bicyle. The Executive Chef at Limablas, Uncle John also happens to be the husband of Florence Tan – one of Malaysia’s most celebrated Nyonya chefs. Invited by HungryGoWhereEat (HGWMY), we sampled a variety of their signature dishes.

We started with the lovely appetizer which is the pai tee. The crunchy pai tee with the flower hats is being filled with the savoury and flavourful mengkuang, carrots and eggs. It is being topped with the fresh prawns which is superbly good. The combination was a great one leaving us with a memorable nice pai tee which I would come back for more. One is never enough!
