Baba Low’s 486 Bangsar

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food

Even though I used to hang out in Bangsar a lot, I did not know about the existence of Baba Low’s 486 Bangsar until I read about this place online.

Interior, Baba Low's 486 Bangsar
The restaurant was located in the old housing area of Bangsar, near Poco Homemade. Parking was rather difficult to find due to limited parking space.

Nyonya Laksa, Baba Low's 486 Bangsar
I read that this restaurant was owned by a Baba Nyonya descendent food operator whose business has its roots in Malacca. The restaurant serves traditional Peranakan Chinese food with a modern touch. One of their must-try item was the Nyonya Laksa.

Nyonya Laksa, Baba Low's 486 Bangsar
Priced at RM6, this bowl of Malacca Nyonya Laksa was served in spicy and fragrant coconut milk gravy with generous toppings of shredded cucumbers, bean sprouts, prawns, cockles, fish ball and egg. This bowl of noodles was what I called comfort food. I liked it and would recommend my readers to try it out.

Pong Teh, Baba Low's 486 Bangsar
Next, I also tried the Pong Teh, which was priced at RM6.50. Pong Teh is a Malacca Nyonya dish with sweet and savoury chicken served with rice. The soy-bean based braised chicken was delicious. The chicken was tender and the gravy complemented the rice very well.

Popiah, Baba Low's 486 Bangsar
Lastly, I also tried their Popiah for RM3.90. The Peranakan spring roll was wrapped with cooked turnips, coriander, fried shallots, bean sprouts, egg strips, shredded cucumber, home made Gula Melaka sweet sauce, garlic and grounded red chilli. Baba Low’s Popiah was very fresh and it was one of the better versions of Popiah I’ve tried.

It was quite an interesting discovery in Bangsar. For those who love Nyonya food, this place is worth a shot. Also worth checking out was their Cendol, which I’ve read a couple of good reviews about it. For more information, feel free to check out this newspaper article from The Star.
