Found right next to the Pinang Peranakan Mansion at Church Street, Nyonya Palazzo is the one of the latest spots to get your afternoon tea fixed. The restaurant can be found at the building next to the Peranakan Mansion... on the upper floor. Take the steep flight of stairs up and you will find yourself in an old-school... wooden flooring space, with plenty of Nyonya knick-knacks and art-displays. The colorful Nyonya Kuih on display will attract you next. The seating arrangement is a little odd here... with tables and chairs a little too close to each other, if they can sort this out, it would be more comfortable to enjoy the afternoon here. On the menu, it has an array of Nyonya delights- from Kuih to light snacks and desserts. Unique ambiance second to none but the hefty price tags on the menu might set you back a bit (imagine a piece of Kuih priced at Rm 9.90), this place is more for a novelty experience than absolute taste.
Their signature Baba & Nyonya High Tea Set is probably the best way to kick start, it allows diners to order 5 items from the Kuih selection. We had Ubi Kayu Kukus, Kuih Seri Muka, Yam Cake, Kuih Kacang Merah and Kuih Bengka. My personal favorite was the Ubi Kayu Kukus, which was firm but bold with Tapioca flavor. The others were pretty decent but for the price tag, we thought they were overpriced. Cold Laksa Spaghetti was another dish that surprised us... it was something like a bolder version of Nyonya Kerabu Vermicelli Noodles but instead, Spaghetti was used. Another surprise from this dish was the portion... since we were paying for almost Rm 20 for this dish, we expected it to be served in slightly bigger portion. Service was great, the atmosphere was perfect, most dishes were fine except... the price tags.
