Nyonya Cuisine at Nancy's Kitchen
Don't let the pungent odor of shrimp paste scare you off. Nancy's Kitchen is one of the best places in Malaysia to try traditional Nyonya cuisine, a Chinese-Asian fusion rich in spices, noodles, and chillies. The setting is simple and unpretentious, but the food is totally memorable. Try the "top hat" appetizer (like a deconstructed spring role with fried dough in the shape of a top hat) along with the chicken and almond curry, Nancy's specialty. If you're brave, order the fish head curry, too—but beware of the shrimp paste.
