You can’t believe that Ayam Buah Keluak is so good that I left my table to the Nyonya corner to find out the name of this dish. But I’m having second thought on my 2nd serving as I noticed the beautiful dessert table.
OMG to the ultra cute Gingerbread House with the Gingerbread Man guarding his house. You must try the Christmas Yule Cake located at the right bottom corner in the picture above. The sweetness is just right and it simply melts in the mouth almost instantly!
I wish that I have a big appetite for all the desserts.
For the assorted Nyonya Kueh Kueh, I would prefer the one with red bean only.
