Fodor's Review

Step through the battered wooden swing doors at this restaurant–cum–antiques shop for a meal that's served with a generous portion of history. One of the oldest restaurants in KL, it's set up on the edge of Chinatown along a street of slightly run-down pre–World War I shophouses. Formerly an old guild hall of the Selangor & Federal Territory Laundry Association in the 1930s, many architectural details remain, and framed black-and-white photographs on the wall tell the building's story. Traditional Nyonya (Chinese-Malay) cuisine is served—must-try dishes include the classic beef rendang, cincaluk (salted krill) omelet, and pie tee ("top hats"), crispy pastry shells that arrive with a plate of savory fillings that you choose yourself.
