Thanks to the invitation from HungryGoWhere, I recently got the chance to sample some nice and authentic Penang Nyonya foods with affordable prices at the Heritage Village.
With 3 branches, we went to their latest opening outlet at the Jaya Shopping Centre (another outlets was located at the Publika and Paradigm Mall). Tastefully decorated with antiques that related back to the Peranakan culture, the dining ambience was calm and inviting with warm hospitality service from the attentive staffs.
Heritage Lor Bak Platter (RM12.90)
A wonderful snack to nibble on before the mains, this platter showcased some of the signature snacks in Penang Nyonya cuisine, which included the crispy lor bak with soft and moist chicken filling, century egg and golden brown fried tofu.
Dipped together with the accompanied sauce, it added a hint of nice sweet flavor, which I like so much for my own taste buds.
Heritage Jiu Hu Char (RM12.90)
Another mouth-watering Penang Nyonya dish, this classic Jiu Hu Char was made from shredded sengkuang, carrots and mushrooms. Tasted moist and refreshing, the dried squid was added into the dish as well to enlighten the whole flavour without significant substance.
There are 2 ways of savoring the Jiu Hu Char, eat it directly, or wrap it with the fresh lettuce for more crunchy texture. Add a dash of Heritage Village’s special chilli sauce if you prefer some kick for your taste buds.
Heritage Nasi Lemak King Combo (RM18.90), with addictive sambal sotong, fragrant chicken rendang and appetizing acar awak.
“Heritage Village’s nasi lemak was prepared from a traditional method of steaming rice with fresh coconut milk with herbs and spices added at different intervals of the cooking process back in 1970. A method that is a family heritage secret that has already spanned over 3 generations”, explained Madam Molly Khoo, the founder of Heritage Village.
“With dedicated passion to make the fine quality of nasi lemak, I have perfected my family’s nasi lemak recipe through a special blend of different rice grains mixed with fresh coconut milk.”
Heritage Assam Laksa (RM11.90)
Served in aromatic fish-based tamarind broth with toppings like shredded pineapple, cucumber, mint leave, lemongrass, onion, lettuce and assam flower, this full of robust flavors assam laksa in thick rice noodles will definitely open up your appetite instantly and satisfy your cravings superbly.
Har Mee (RM11.90)
One of the Malaysian’s favorite local dishes, this bowl of delicious Har Mee was cooked with both the yellow noodles and vermicelli in aromatic and flavorful prawn broth. Served with fresh prawns, boiled egg, bean sprouts and kangkong that placed on top, you can add on the fragrant belacan into the prawn broth for more oomph and taste.
Heritage Duck Egg Char Koay Teow (RM14.90)
Malaysian’s favorite flat rice noodles fried with cockles, prawns, fish cake, bean sprouts and salted duck egg for the extra wonderful flavor. The serving portion was quite decent and the texture was just nice for my preference which was not too wet. Those who do not like salted duck egg can request for the normal Char Koay Teow priced at RM12.90.
Madam Molly Khoo has passed on her family’s heritage onto her children and till today her family’s legacy still lives on with their recipes being served to customers today.
With every mouthful they can have a taste of a traditional Penang Nyonya Heritage.
