Heritage Village ~ The Flavours of Penang Nyonya @Jaya Shopping Centre Section 14 Petaling Jaya

The Heritage Village has a story to tell with family heritage secret that has spanned over 3 generations. Its family's founder, Madam Molly Khoo began serving her special nasi lemak from a food stall in a coffee shop way back in 1998. Madam Molly's time-honoured recipes has since been passed onto her children and till today, her family's legacy lives on in the dishes served to customers at this restaurant. 

They specialises in serving Peranakan Penang Nyonya delicacies. Dishes to look out for include Chicken Pong Tay (Chicken stewed in shallot gravy), Jiu Hu Char (Cuttle-fish salad), Fish Head Curry, Asam Pedas Fish, Chicken Curry Kapitan, Lo Bak, Otak-otak and many more. 

Upon entering Heritage Village, you will be greeted with an interesting interior decor filled with local antiques. Diners gets to see bakul sia or auspicious basket (lacquered tiffins carriers used by Nyonyas) and old fashioned flasks of all kinds on the shelf mounting on the cement textured wall. 

Adorning the walls are framed pictures taken of the old Penang. The simple yet unique design of bird cage pendant lightings provide the rustic charm, pleasant and calming ambience for you, family and friends to dine in.

The flooring was beautifully decorated with colourful pattern of nyonya ceramic tiles, ones can basically soaked into the Peranakan culture while enjoying the local fare of Penang flavours.

For starters, we were served Jiu Hui Char, a traditional dish enjoyed by Nyonyas. This popular stir-fried dish made from shredded turnips, carrots, dried squids and mushrooms. Usually eaten wrapped with chinese lettuce which makes it a wonderful healthy dish especially for those on diet.
