Baba Low’s 486 @ Lorong Kurau, Bangsar

I have heard so much about this place and have been wanting to try it out. Baba Low’s 486 at Jalan Kurau, Bangsar is famous for Peranakan or Nyonya delights such as Nyonya Laksa, Popiah Kulit Telor, Ikan Asam Pedas, Pai Tee, Ayam Pongteh and Cendol to name a few.

This restaurant is located in the secluded area of Jalan Kurau, Bangsar and along the same row as Hits & Mrs. If you are not familiar with Bangsar, my advise is use WAZE as this place is quite hard to find.

For quick and easy reference, you can look at the large chalkboard menu right behind the cashier.

The interior of this restaurant is pretty simple. No fancy decorations, just a few wooden tables and chairs.

Pai Tee (RM5.50)

The Pai Tee or also known as ‘Top Hats’ make a great appetiser. The crispy and crunchy Pai Tee shells are filled with generous amount of fillings such as shredded cucumber, shredded jicama (sengkuang), shredded egg and fried shallots. This mouth-sized, flavourful and crispy Pai Tee is a good snack. Yums!

Popiah Kulit Telor (RM4)

As the name suggests, the Popiah Skin is made of egg. The Popiah contains fresh ingredients like turnip, cucumber, bean sprout, coriander, shallots and shredded egg. Taste alright but I find it a little dry. FYI, Baba Low’s Popiah is the dry version, not the Melaka famous Popiah Basah or Wet Popiah.

Nyonya Laksa (RM6.50)

I was told that Nyonya Laksa is a must order at Baba Low’s. This bowl of traditional Melaka Nyonya Laksa is served with noodles of your choice in spicy coconut broth with ingredients like shredded cucumber, bean sprouts, shrimps, cockles, tau pok, fishballs and hard boiled egg. Plus point for fresh ingredients but the soup was a let down as the broth is pretty diluted. If you ask me, the Nyonya Laksa here still can’t fight the ones in Malacca.

Ikan Asam Pedas (RM7)

The Ikan Asam Pedas at Baba Low’s is Garang fish cooked in spicy and sourish broth with lady’s fingers. I feel that the gravy is a bit diluted and would be better if the gravy is thicker. Taste wise, this dish is lacking the ‘spicy sour’ flavor; not spicy nor sourish.

Baba Low

Cendol (RM4.50)

This bowl of dessert is made of shaved ice drizzled with coconut milk and gula Melaka. Perfect thirst quencher!

Baba Low

Verdict: When you crave for Peranakan or Nyonya food but lazy to drive all the way to Melaka, then drop by Baba Low’s to satisfy your cravings. Service is fast and people here are friendly.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
