*Must Try* Jolly Nyonya Tasty Treats – Kakatoo Cafe
Kakatoo Cafe Story
At Kakatoo, they are inspired to serve the most scrumptious homemade Nyonya dishes and exquisite western cuisine. With the love of a grandma who loves to cook for her two grandchildren, Kakatoo started to serve delicious Nyonya & western cuisine since 2012.
Every meal they serve at Kakatoo is prepared with love and joy, despite all the delicate and meticulous preparation. They only use the finest and freshest herb, spices and ingredients in their cooking. It is all about their passion for food that connected Kakatoo to their beloved customers.
*Kakatoo Cafe is a certified halal restaurant, specialized in serving delicious Nyonya and western style dishes.
The Kakatoo Acar
Since we are such huge fans on salad, here comes our appetizer’s dish, Kakatoo Acar (Vegetable Pickle) RM9.90 – serves with toasted ground nuts, pineapple, cucumber, cabbage, and carrot.
Overall tastes like pickled vegetables coated with lots of “satay sauce”, the veggies still remain crunchy but have a mildly acidic flavour and strong nutty taste.
*Other than Nyonya snacks, Kakatoo also serves best western appetizers – Russet potato skin, crispy onion ring, buffalo wings, parmesan chicken boxing, fried calamari and many more.
Nyonya Pai Tee
While you are dining in Nyonya Cuisines, Pai Tee RM8.90 would be the one and only dish that everyone refuses to miss – Crispy tart shell filled with Chinese turnips, carrots, peanut and fried shallots.
Kakatoo’s version is served with super thin and crispy tart shell, we would only rate it as “okay” because it has a missing key ingredient (soul) for the Pai Tee – the dried shrimps. 😉
*Curious whats the remaining Nyonya appetizer in the menu? Kakatoo also serves – Samosa, Yam Cake, Otak-Otak, Kerabu Mango, Chicken Lobak, Satay Chicken and Pandan Chicken.
Signature Kakatoo Nasi Kerabu
We choose our main delicious meal from “The Awesome All Day Set” section, Signature Nasi Kerabu RM26.90 – serves with Nasi Kerabu, Kerisik, Fish Cracker, Acar, Veggies, Salted Egg, Samosa, Beef Rendang, Satay, Rempah Chicken and a FREE bowl of homemade sago with Gula Melaka syrup.
Frankly speaking, this is more “grand” than what we encountered at Madam Kwan (Nasi Lemak), the Nasi Kerabu tastes heavenly good especially while mixing with their homemade sambal sauce, we keep busy-busy stacking meat from the west to meet with the rice on the east vice versa throughout the meal! 😉
With these generous amounts of ingredients on a plate (easily can be shared between two people) at such gastronomic price, what else you could have asked for?
*Only applied for The Awesome All Day Set, with an add-on of RM2.00, you are entitled to any free beverage of your choice – hot lemon tea, iced lemon tea, soy milk, coke, and 100 plus.
*Kindly note that menu availability and price might vary from time to time
