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:
The ambience is nice inside - lots of wooden finishings, making it feel warm and cosy:
We started off with the classic Pai Tee/ Top Hat (RM 6+):
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!):
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+?)
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+)
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:
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...
