The Tranquerah, Red Carpet Avenue Encorp Strand

Malacca Nyonya Cuisine

Ever thought of having something different for Chinese New Year? Well, I have...I mean, usually all of us would be sitting down together with families, having a typical Chinese New Year's dinner  at a typical restaurant...Being at Chinese Restaurant, or maybe even Hotels....

Are you bored of it already? Well, if you are...why not try something different this year for Chinese New Year!

Probably you could have some Chinese New Year reunion dinner at a Malacca Nyonya Cuisine Restaurant?

You could check out the restaurant below for this, they are offering amazing Chinese New Year package!
The Tranquerah
You must be wondering how does the name come about right? I was thinking, woah, such an unique name like really! But after some explanation by the boss (you might wanna know who is the boss as well later =P ) The name actually came about from a street name from Malacca itself.. They want to incorporate the whole idea of Malacca from Malacca itself to here...Hence they pick a street name from Malacca itself.

Check out the layout of the restaurant, really nice and unique...I love it!

Check out the chair here on the left....damn creative right?! XD

So let's explore the Chinese New Year Menu now
Pai Tee (Top Hats)
This is sort of a snacks I would say. It's basically a snacks with a Pai Tee (biscuit based) together with a mixture of vegetables. It something light, healthy and delicious I would say. Crunchy on the outside, and healthy on the inside...

Chicken Meatball Soup
Hands down to the Chicken Meatball Soup! Really! why? Simply because I'm never a soup person, I never finish my bowl soup whenever I'm served on...not even at home, not even at any restaurant.... But this soup was good...the taste was there, and you wouldn't feel thirsty after drinking it...I mean most restaurant their soups is fulled with addictive, hence the thirstiness...but this nah, it was nice...really nice...

Nyonya Chicken Curry
It reminds me of my grandma's cooking! haha...Well, it's really different the Curry Chicken compared to the curry chicken you usually have it... You really feel that the coconut milk level is slightly higher, and of course the spices of herbs and ingredients of the curry paste is different...It's quite unique I would say....the aroma was strong definitely and the chicken was tender as well...Nicely done!

Chap Chye (Nyonya Mixed Stir-Fried Vegetables)
Pretty normal dish to me...It's dish where they mix together all sorts of vegetables...hence the name =)

Sek Kay (Nyonya Stewed Chicken)
When this dish was served, I was like, woah what is this! I'm even more hungry looking at it now! haha...
This is a dish consists of hard-boiled egg, chicken feet, some tau-kua and chicken meat...
Pretty special dish I would say...Most of it was cooked solely based on soya sauce, but with some other ingredients as well... A dish where you can't complain for more!

Sotong Masak Lemak Nenas
Ok, I got to say this is good... The lemak and the gravy is just plain awesome...the paste was really nice, the lemak level was just nice as well....and when you have the gravy, you will ask literally ask for more! You can even eat it with white rice together with the gravy only! IT IS THAT GOOD!

Ikan Goreng Chili (Talapia)
Something special to me...the fish was cooked till super duper crispy... The spices on top was pretty decent too...It's like as if eating a snacks of crispy snacks rather than eating some fish...good for kids who don't like fish! =D
Sambal Bendi
It is spicy and pretty decent dish....Can order it anytime of the day for nice vegetables dish for sure =)

That is basically the normal Chinese New Year Menu that they offered... by the way, this is Chinese New Year Set Menu A - RM 588.00

If you're having a big appetite that day, you can consider ordering these below...
Trust, tried them...and it's really tasty!
Sambal Terung
I was never a brinjal's fan...never like and I thought I never will...But after this dish, I kinda like brinjal..Somehow maybe it's the paste that they used, it is pretty nice...something unique yet different for me...

Gerang Asam Stingray
Asam stingray was the boom la! the asam is super duper nice...dunno how to explain also..haha just try it when you're there!

Cucur Udang
 A dish where the prawn was fried together with a layer coated flour which turned up to become Cucur Udang! haha

After all the heavy meal, I'm sure you want to order some desserts as well right...

Ice Kacang

 Bubur Cha Cha

Sago Gula Melaka
Conclusion to all the desserts, they uses AUTHENTIC Gula Melaka...hence the desserts all are not too sweet but full with tastes instead! Perfect!

Oh ya! how can Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner be complete without a proper Lou Sang right?! XD
Nyonya Yee Sang
It's Nyonya Yee Sang, something seriously super duper unique...Just check out the pictures on what ingredients they uses.... and guess what tastes almost like Pasembur!

and we louuuuuuuuuu
