Located just next to Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel and the closest Monorail is Medan Tuanku. Just a mere walking distance of 5 minutes.

The restaurant has a lovely outdoor patio for customers who want to dine alfresco. During the night, it's cooling to seat outside. A great place to hangout with friends.

Limapulo: Baba Can Cook is the brainchild of Uncle John, a passionate chef who aims to preserve and share the traditional Baba Nyonya culinary traditions with the world.

Exquisite Menu:

One of the highlights of Limapulo is its carefully curated menu that showcases the best of Baba Nyonya cuisine. From hearty meat dishes to flavorful vegetarian options, there is something to satisfy every palate.

One must-try dish is the famous "Ayam Pongteh," a slow-cooked chicken stew infused with fermented soybean paste, onions, and potatoes. The robust flavors and tender meat make it a crowd favorite.

Sambal Terung is one of my favourite dishes for the night. It was done perfectly and the sambal was not overly spicy for me. The softness of the terung melts in my mouth. I just can't get enough of this!

For those with a more adventurous palate, you may opt for this Sambal Petai Sotong. Oh! they also have it with prawns. Super flavourful and aromatic especially with the petai!

Ayam Berempah, as the name suggests this Chicken is full of spices and full of flavour. It's tasty and satisfyingly good. This unique chicken dish is a perfect mix between rendang and curry chicken.

Gerang Asam Fish

If you love a tinge of sourness that's appetizing, you will love this!

Ikan Pari/ Stingray is used to prepare this lovely dish. It's a combination of well-fried spices with Tamarind Juice that gives it a tinge of sourness. I like to pair this with white rice.

Nyonya delicacy at its best:

A must-try here is their Nyonya Laksa,  a spicy coconut milk-based noodle soup that is sure to tantalize your taste buds. Authentic and delicious. They do not use curry powder to make this authentic dish. Packed with ingredients such as shredded chicken, fried tofu puffs and tofu skin, bean sprouts, hard-boiled egg, fishball and fish cake, it is simply worth the money.

Did You Know?

1) The signature sate has a special sauce homemade from star fruits and pineapple.

2) One of the standout dishes here and a must-try is the Nyonya Laksa

3) Pai Tee is also known as top hat. The one I had here is super crispy and one of the best pai tee's I've had in a long time. Filled with sengkuang and topped with prawns, this is a must-try.

What's for dessert?

The culinary journey at Limapulo extends beyond the main course. Don't miss their delectable selection of desserts, such as the "Sago Gula Melaka," a creamy dessert made with sago pearls and palm sugar syrup or better known as gula melaka and drenched in evaporated milk.

Beat the heat with this Peranakan Ginger Ale thirst-quenching drink.

It is one of the must-try signature drinks there.

Old-world-charm with a rustic edge and vintage canteen-style furniture that evokes waves of nostalgia across a dimly lit venue.
