Being too lazy to line up for anything (yes, looking at you Mamak!), I was keen to try out the new Malaysian restaurant in town - conveniently located in Chinatown, just opposite Mamak on Dixon street.
Nonya by Ginger and Spice is situated upstairs, right next to More More Cha. They also seem to have a deal going at the moment, $9.80 for a lot of their dishes, including beef rendang and their hainanese chicken rice.
Spring rolls - these were interesting, not the typical spring rolls, the outer layer reminds me of the taro puffs you find in yum cha.
The benchmark dish - Hainanese chicken rice
I'm not expert, but I thought their version was pretty good.
Beef rendang - had this with some plain rice, but should've gotten more of the chicken rice instead, so tasty!
Char kway teow - couldn't resist this on my second visit, it was good but I thought it was a little on the salty side.
Definitely a great place for a Malaysian fix if you're queue-phobic like me, and the deals they have at the moment make it pretty good value.
