Aunty Nat's @ Sri Hartamas, KL

Nyonya food in Sri Hartamas......

Auntie Nat's is on the quieter side of Hartamas, in the row of shops where other eateries like Isaki, Bulldog and Saffron are also located:
Outside Auntie Nat's.....

The ambience is nice inside - lots of wooden finishings, making it feel warm and cosy:
Inside Auntie Nat's.....

We started off with the classic Pai Tee/ Top Hat (RM 6+):
Top hats!.....

Tasted ok - the Pai Tee was crispy and went well with the moist mengkuang char filling. There was also a super hot sambal if you want to spice it up.

We also tried the Belacan fried rice (RM 12+?) (Bloody hell I actually kept the receipt properly this time but they lumped the prices of our mains together!):
The fried rice.....

Carbs are my Achilles' Heel... =_=
I wouldn't mind ordering this again - nice "dry" fried rice texture with a fragrant (but not too strong) taste of belacan.

Also we had the Tom Yam Mihun (RM 11+?)
My bowl of tom yum mihun.....

This was just ok.
It was simple - sour, mildly spicy and had a decent amount of seafood. Not earth moving but it will do if you have a tom yam craving.

Lastly, for dessert: the Sago Gula Melaka (RM 4.50+)
I heart sago!.....

Yummy. Love this dessert.
The one here is pretty well prepared - the sago was soft yet slightly bounce-y texture, and the gula melaka+coconut milk sauce was tasty without being too sweet.

Ok. So the food isn't earth shatteringly fantastic... but it's good considering the reasonable pricing and comfortable environment.... I know I'll be back when I get a hankering for Nyonya food during lunch hour. :)

Here's a map to Saffron (which is just next to Aunty Nat's), just in case you are not familiar with the area:

Map from the back of the name card... :)


So it's: Casual, comfortable dining, fairly good selection of Asian and Nyonya food BUT nothing much bad to say really - already spotted a few interesting things on the menu that I want to go back to try...

"Carbs are my Achilles' Heel."

And mine. Devil and I are sitting at Shanghai10 now waiting for dinner to be served and I am still surfing for more food reccies! Incorrigible, right? :P

To Thule: hmmm... Well, I haven't eaten at the midvalley outlet lately but I think it's still there... Will check n post up if it isn't... :)

to qwazymonkey: What a small world! Hope she doesn't get angry with me for anything she would consider less than positive comments because I did enjoy my meal there.... I know I've already gotten 1 restaurant manager angry with me, I don't want then to form an angry mob. :)

to life for beginners: haha. Yay for the carb lovers club! :) :) how's the food at shanghai10?

Service sucks. They try to save on the number of service staff they have. And i believe they discriminate against customers ordering take away and in small quantities. I ordered fish porridge (take away, price RM9) and after waiting 30 minutes, still no sign of my order. The manageress didn't even offer any excuses for the delay. Pathetic! All the while, she was taking care of the other sit-in customers, even if they had ordered later than me. Will definitely spread the word around on the discrimination. Being a Sri Hartamas resident myself, I would not touch this place with a mile-long pole.
