Uncle John's Nyonya Food @ Limapulo, Jalan Doraisamy

Throwback to two months ago, I was introduced to this restaurant by local celebrity Mr Alan Yun, and on the evening of Deepavali day, me and my two friends decided to drop by for dinner. My memory of Jalan Doraisamy was all the pubs and soup kambing, and there it stood, Limapulo in the center of this nightlife lit street, but the street is bound to have some road renovations going on.

We were offered the set lunch menu although it's dinner time, as well as the ala carte menu. The set lunch is very very affordable, at rm9.90 you pick a main and it comes with rice, a slice of fried egg and side vege. So for three of us, we ordered 3 set lunches, pie tees, a mango appetizer, a vege dish and sambal petai sotong.

The waitress told us it is a warm mango dish cooked in sambal. We could not imagine the taste at first as it was our first time trying it, but it's quite refreshing. Tasting similar like rojak mango. So good, for petai and squid lovers. Especially the squid tentacles lol, the sambal goes so well and it's just so good with rice. I can just finish this whole plate with plain white rice. And the portion is big, enough for three.

Kangkung masak lemak keledek. Crapz, I can't remember it was kangkung or bayam, but nonetheless, it's a very creamy santan-ny vege dish that goes very very well with rice too.

 We ordered the Chicken Pongteh set lunch, Gerang Asam Pari set lunch and the Ayam Berempah set lunch. The taste, the flavors were all there. 

Pie Tee (4 @ RM10)

The only drawback for me was, I didn't get to try their laksa even though it was a Wednesday, due to it being a public holiday, and apparently I was told that the laksa usually sold out during lunch. So i have to head over some fine day to try their laksa because it looks damn awesome. Yummy yummy!

Nyonya Laksa is available on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Limapulo also has a branch outlet at Intermark, called Limabelas.
