Review (5)
Donald & Lily Nyonya Food Restaurant is not something new among the locals. They have been running the food business for a very long time and have established quite an reputation in Malacca (Melaka). The restaurant is well known for its tasty and authentic Nyonya Food. And with the affordable prices, it is no surprise that this restaurant is always packed to capacity, with long lines of people waiting for their turns to have a taste of their food.As I was in Malacca (Melaka) with a few chefs who knew Donald (the “father” of the business) through a food convention, we headed there and had a special place for ourselves instead of waiting for the lines. Yay!When we are talking about Nyonya Food, this item – Cendol is not to be missed! Think about it, all tourists come all the way to Malacca (Melaka) just to have a taste of Cendol! So how could we not order this sweet item?As you could see, it’s filled with lotsa Santan (Coconut Milk) goodness! Apart from that, they also put in Sago as one of their ingredients other than the usual ones like red beans and the cendol.The Nyonya Laksa is good, it’s filled a lot of santan goodness too! For someone who doesn’t take much spicy food, I don’t really enjoy this dish much. However, all my other fellow friends commented that it’s delicious! So why not you try it for yourself?Mee Siam! This feels like ordinary mee goreng like you can have everywhere in the morning. I find it common and nothing special to scream about to be honest apart from the added ingredients. (OOPS!)ROJAK! It’s different as you have lotsa Taukua and other beans items, fish cakes as well! I find the sauce is lacking in terms of sweetness and the combination of the ingredients…. Oh well, let’s just say it doesn’t go along with my self-preferences.COCONUT MILK! Nyonya food uses a lot of COCONUT MILK, which is a great item to elevate the taste of food to another level, provided if the milk is fresh. Otherwise, this ingredient actually can cause lotsa troubles to many people like me who has a sensitive stomach.This Udang Masak Lemak – direct translation: Coconut Milk Cooked Prawn is very good! Finally, I have something memorable to take away from Donald & Lily. I really love the fact that they add in pineapple to cook with the sauce so that it’s a bit soury instead of the just the coconut milk taste that might just overturn your appetite if consumed too much. The prawns are fresh. This dish is highly recommended.Ayam Ponteh is cooked with black soy sauce; it’s a very common dish among the chinese families. I find it lacking in something, like it’s good but not too great to actually leave a memorable impression on people.THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST CHICKEN RENDANG I HAVE EVER HAD. ENOUGH SAID. And yes you must order this! It comes with the Nasi Lemak, at only RM6.50, definitely worth the price you pay!*The Chicken Rendang dish here is special as we went with celebrated chef and they prepared this specially for us.Chicken Rendang continue reading

Lovely entrance of Donald & Lily's Nyonya Food Restaurant In 2010 trip to Melaka with my friends, Donal & Lily's Nyonya Food Restaurant is one of our stop for Nyonya food. We ordered their Nyonya Laksa and Mee Siam to try.Nyonya Laksa (RM 3.50)I quite like the Nyonya Laksa because it is not spicy and and the soup is creamy as it was cooked with lots of santan (coconut milk). Among the ingredients given were kerang, tauge, tau pok and some sliced egg. Mee Siam (RM 3.50)This is my first time having the wet version of Mee Siam. Usually in KL, I always have the dry version. The mee siam itself is already sourish and spicy but after squeezing the lime juice onto the Mee Siam, the dish became more appetizing. The Mee Siam comes with sliced omelette, sliced fish cakes, fried shallots and julienned cucumber. These pictures hung on the wall gives a homey feeling to the restaurant. continue reading
