Nyonya Food At Ah Tuan Ee’s Place Made Me Sick – Or Did It?

Last Sunday, on the eve of the Lunar New Year, there were limited restaurant choices. Many restaurants are usually closed on the eve, first and second day of the Chinese New Year. Restaurant proprietors also need to celebrate this important festival.

A detour to Sea Park led us to either New Paris Restaurant or Ah Tuan Ee’s Place. The latter won, as it has been a while since we last had nyonya food.

A cozy restaurant

We enjoyed the food at Ah Tuan Ee so much, that it was such a let down now we suspect that food is  contaminated. Bf and I were down with diarrhea on that night itself. Since that was the only common food we had (he flew back to Bangkok after that lunch), we figured that must be the culprit.


Penang Lam Mee


Mom had a Lam Mee (RM 13.80)  for herself, so she escaped the pain. Phew. By the way, Lam Mee  is considered a birthday noodle by Penangnites. Yellow noodles topped with fried eggs, bean sprouts and chives, served in tasty chicken soup. But mom told Ah Tuan Ee’s staff “no good” .. as she was expecting the eggy dark brown soup, and not this Penang version. Mom.

Bf and I ordered dishes with rice:


Gulai Tumis

Gulai Tumis (RM 26.80, small size) – slices of sole fish cooked in spicy & sourish gravy.


Beef Rendang

Beef Rendang (RM 25.80, small size) – cube of beef fillet simmered in thick, fragrant, coconut gravy.

We suspected it could either be the gulai tumis or beef rendang, as there were the 2 dishes that mom didin’t eat.

Steamed Bendi With Sambal Hae Bee (RM 22.80, medium size) – okra with spicy dried shrimps.

Super huge ice kacang with ice cream

Ice kacang (RM 13.80)

Total bill: RM 127.90 for 3 pax


We ate at Ah Tuan Ee’s Place before, and didn’t face any problem then. So, eat with caution.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
