Nenda, the name of this restaurant sounds something like addressing Granny in a Royal Malay family. However, the concept of this restaurant has nothing to do with classic Malay food. In fact, the food is mostly Western and Fusion cooking style.
Located at the central of Bayan Lepas Industrial area, Nenda’s Kitchen is located just opposite AMD and a few stones’ throw from Intel. With its nice and cozy ambiance, this place can cater up to 100 pax.
There is also a private dining area available for those looking for a more quiet dining experience.
Set lunch at Nenda’s Kitchen is available with a choice of any main course, and add on RM8 for soup, ice cream and a drink.
The same goes for set dinner with a choice of your favorite main course, and add on RM15 for an appetizer, soup and dessert.
The dessert varies from time to time. This time I had chocolate brownie with ice cream and served with some pistachio crunches.
Nenda’s Smoky Chicken Burger – RM16.50, Homemade chicken patty topped with sliced cheese, assorted vegetables, sunny side up and french fries.
The selling point of this dish is the patty. Nenda’s Kitchen makes their own patties in which the texture is juicy and tender. The combination of the sliced cheese, juicy patty, egg and barbeque sauce made the perfect irresistible combination.
Hawaiian Chicken Chop – RM15.50. Signature pan grilled chicken chop topped with pineapple and cheese served with country greens, cherry tomatoes and mashed potato.
Nenda’s Hawaiian Chicken Chop is served with grilled chicken instead of the usual deep fried chicken. The gravy is also something very unusual as it consists of some orangey fragrance. The taste really gives the “sunshine” feeling of Hawaii.
Nenda’s Rempah Banana Leaf Fish Fillet – RM26.50. Local seabass cooked with rempah paste and pan seared, serving together with pickled onions, mayonnaise, country greens, grilled tomato and french fries.
Having the usual fish and chips that served with tartar sauce is too common. Have you tried fish fillet topped with rempah paste? This is one of the fusion creations at Nenda’s Kitchen. The combination of the the taste is slightly weird as it is hard to imagine the the taste of rempah with fish fillet. However, this combination turns out to be surprisingly good and it makes me wanted to go back for more of this dish.
Overall, Nenda’s Kitchen serves a great variety of Western and fusion cuisine. The location of this restaurant at the central of Industrial zone makes it an ideal place for workers in the surrounding area especially with the option of set lunches and set dinners. Parking is not a concern here as there is ample parking space surrounding this cafe.
