I'm a regular patron for this Nyonya Restaurant for months ago and I still continue to try out their Special dish which is not the menu...Ms Grace Lim (the owner and the Chef) will frequently present her different Special Nyonya dishes week by week in the restaurant.
On our visit that evening, Grace was generously show us the making of Roti Jala. She slowly mixed the flour, eggs and water until perfect and continued in the kitchen.

We have to dig out the filling in the nuts and eat together with rice, with the help from Grace...
The filing is a mixture of prawns, chickens and the fruit itself...
Some might like it, some might not like it because of the unique taste of the fruit, you have to try it yourself...
The forth dish was the Nyonya Steam Fish which I mentioned before in my previous post...and follow by the new and special dish from the restaurant - The Lotus roots with Petai.
