The nameless Kulaijaya (formerly known as Kulai) main road Chicken Chop stall

The Kulaijaya Main Road Chicken Chop stall (N1.66207 E103.60152) is famous around the area and many of the local grew together with the chicken chop, located along the main road and next to the Kulaijaya Centre Point Building. It has more than 30 years history and the son of the stall owner is helping his father nowadays...positively will be pass over to his next generation soon in the future.

The stall is open on 8pm everyday, and we were quite early that evening...watching they setup the stall and everything...
Once everything ready, their son continue to take order from the customers...

The Kulaijaya Chicken Chop

The simple chicken chop filled with nice aroma, served with deep fried chicken, fries, baked beans, sausage, soft boiled egg and cucumbers.
It was really 'simple'.

It was crispy on the outer skin and succulent inside. The chicken was just nice, moist and not over cooked. The other side dish also not bad at all. Anyway, with the reasonable price of the chicken chop, we didn't set a high expectation for it but the dish served on table was unexpectedly good!

The chicken chop above cost less than RM12, very filling.
It's simple and nice meal if you really looking for the fast and traditional chicken chop around the Kulaijaya area during the evening. It wasn't heavenly good and value for money.

I just simply like the traditional way of setting and admired the long history of the stall, I will be back again whenever I need a quick bite.

The restaurant has a nice decor and cozy ambience, but limited seating area. It's advise to make a reservation if you going to dine in during weekend evening.

While we stepped into the restaurant just like a time portal, the retro design with the touch of Peranakan atmosphere is a reminiscent of those golden days. The restaurant is fully air-conditioned and is a good place for family dining and friends gathering.

Nyonya Assam Fish

The Nyonya Assam fish taste sour and spicy, and the sourish and spicy level were balanced and satisfied. The portion was just nice and not over served.

Clay pot fish head curry

As usual, the fish head curry served with piping hot and delicious! The flesh was flavorful and pleasingly firm, curry was rich really goes well with the plain rice, you shouldn't miss this if you are a curry lover.

Deep Fried Slice of Fish with ginger and garlic

This was the dish specially for the children. The slice of deep fried fish served with dried ginger, garlic and bean paste. It was sweet with fragrance of the bean paste gravy. The children were happily enjoyed the fish till empty.

 photo IMG_2290_zps2cf2a682.jpg
Nyonya chap chai (mixed vegetables)

The Nyonya chap chai is one of the must order dish for every Nyonya restaurant we visit, the reason is because the dish is the Nyonya authentic homecook dish. The chap chai was well prepared and the taste was just perfect, but the portion was rather small...

 photo IMG_2289_zpsa57696b6.jpg
The sambal petai (stink bean)

The petai was fresh and the special made sambal went well with it. The sambal had a balanced sweet and spicy taste that made us can't stop enjoying it.

 photo IMG_2276_zpsf3a0604b.jpg
Stir fried long bean with prawns

This dish is not really a Nyonya dish, it's available easily at most of the Chinese restaurant within Malaysia. The long bean was not overly fried, provided some crunchy bites and the prawns were fresh!

 photo IMG_2279_zps78001866.jpg
Cincalok omelette

This is another dish we will order while visiting a Nyonya restaurant. The Cincalok omelette was served with nice fragrance and taste just nice, not salty at all. The children had it happily.

 photo IMG_2287_zps3d776d6f.jpg
Ayam Pongteh (chicken)

The Ayam Pongteh is an authentic dish from Baba Nyonya, we won't miss to enjoy this meal on every Nyonya restaurant we visited within Malaysia. And in Nyonya Treats Restaurant, the chicken was well prepared and cooked to perfection. The meats were tender and easily drop from bone while you bite on it. The dish is cook with bean paste and potatoes, it had the strong taste of the sweet bean paste in the chicken...

Ayam Pongteh (chicken)

Nyonya Treats Restaurant serve varieties of Nyonya foods, and the above dishes we tried were satisfied. Beside, the prices also reasonable. The total bill for the savory dishes we had was around RM180.00 included drinks (for 6 adults and 3 children).

It is a another good restaurant to having a nice Nyonya food within Johor Bahru area, we having our dinner there after the children's fun from the Legoland. It's another good choice for those who want to dine in after the whole day activities at the Theme Park.

Do drop by the restaurant if you happen to be around at Taman Perling, and I believe you will like it even you are not the fan of Nyonya food. :)

After the last show, you can take photos with your favorite characters one-by-one with your own camera and also their professional photographer in the theme park. But...it was only limited time, be hurry if you want to take photo with all the favorite characters in The Little Big Club.

It's really a good theme park for family and children (age 3-12), where you can see the joyful moment and the non-stop laughter all the time! It was a priceless moment to me and my family! Worth the ticket prices!

The Traders Hotel is located just next to the Family Theme Park

Unless the children do not know the characters in the theme park, or else they will be very happy and enjoy themselves! Some of my friends asked me about the park...actually I shouldn't be the one to rate the park, let the children do the talking! And their laughter in the park already proved how good the park is...

The last session while we exit the park, the route guide us through a souvenirs centre where you can buy all kinds of toys for your children.
