Nyonya Colors @ One Utama

There is this newly opened Nyonya Colors stall in One Utama, we tried to get a seat for the past few weeks but it was forever packed wiv patrons.

Yesterday, we were so determined to try its chendol (Yes, I still miss my bowl of durian chendol from Malacca, drizzled wiv lotsa Gula Melaka..yumzzz!). Be prepared to fight for seats if you want to try their nyonya specialities :)

This place is great for you to enjoy a tea break. They offer an extensive range of colourful nyonya kuihs for you to choose from. A small slice of kuih costs about 80 cents to RM1, pricier than the one sold in pasar malam but I can assure you that the kuihs tasted really GOOD!

I had my favourite pulut panggang (90 cents), kuih talam keladi (90 cents)--this is really good stuff! and sweet potato kuih (80 cents).


Two bowls of chendol (RM3.30). Not really good. It was just a bowl of shaved ice with lil' gula melaka and coconut milk :(

Char Siew Bao tried their yellow curry nudles (RM7.90). A generous serving of bihun and a chicken drumstick swimming in a sea of yellow curry sauce. We agreed that this is a must try at Nyonya Colors, the curry was very flavourful and aromatic!

Would luv to try other kuihs and their nasi kunyit on my next visit ^_^

xiu long bao,
The pulut panggang definitely looks nice to me. But RM0.90 for only 1/3 of the size I have in Miri, a bit too pricy though.

You're right, the cendol looks quite sad. Hey faster try the nasi kunyit and blog about it..I wonder whether it's good...I like nasi kunyit:-).

Xiu Long Bao said...

kok: exactly, i can get 3 pulut for RM1 at my neighbourhood pasar malam...anywayz, their pulut n kuihs definitely worth the price! Really good stuff :)

lyrical lemongrass: yup...nuthin beats the authentic malacca chendol. I suppose dat the nasi kunyit is tasty :) okok will try it soon cus i luv nasi kunyit too :p

wmw said...

I sometimes like durian cendol and sometimes prefer it plain to have it the good 'ol way. Yeah, never get around to trying as it's usually pack.

Char Siew Bao said...

Curry Laksa was delightfully delicious... Aromatic & tasty!

The pulut panggang was also nice! Should have bought more! :P

Thk god for my ancestors meeting up to create the first Baba & Nyonya! :D

Char Siew Bao said...

Oh 4got to say that the Chendol was sad man... Shaved ice was "chunky"... Gula Melaka added was a tad to little for my liking... But then again... you don't usually find alot of chendol makers that add gula Melaka in KL nowadays...

But one thing that Nyonya Colours could have done to distinguish their chendol from the rest, bsides being a bit more "generous" with Gula Melaka would be to add some pulut into the chendol!

Ahhh... Chendol with pulut treasure at the bottom... Not many stalls do that, too....

Precious Pea said...

For cendol, i think the best are from those roadside rojak van. Yumz..my favourite too.

Xiu Long Bao said...

teambsg: the food were as colorful as the name. The kuihs and hot food are good!Definitely worth trying :)

tankiasu: hey, i tried 4 times oledi u noe. The last time i was so determined to try it out that I stood beside a table n waited for them to go off ;p

citygal: Must be ganas enoh to fight for seats!

the cendol looks dismal..but the kuih looks good..put it dis way..less calories consumed..more varieties tried..well hurt ur wallet then hurt ur stomach rite?

Timothy said...

Stuffs sold in 1 U are of course expensive .. even if it's just pulut. Anyway, I wouldn't even try the food there .. although I actually sat down once.. but then changed my mind and left. Embarrassing man ....

Btw .. I just moved to Wordpress ....

Xiu Long Bao said...

halo someone who is constantly craving!hmm...okay...u mean the chendol wiv less gula melaka costs me less calories?


timothy: OMG! u got a seat but u didn't try any of their specialties?

Someone who is constantly craving said...

actually i meant the cendol look shit..haahha..but the small size kuih means calories saved hahaha..

Xiu Long Bao said...

someone who is constantly craving:
The size of the kuih is just nice for me! I think the kuihs sold in pasar malam is way too big, often cannot finish it at a time.
