Nyonya - 194 Grand Street (Malaysian)
Right on the edge of what's left of Little Italy. (They should just give up - we've always got Arthur Avenue, says the Bronxite.)

Nyona is named after a particular type of Malaysian Cooking - Nyonya food is also known as Chinese Straits cooking - it's a mix of Chinese and Malay cuisine, heavy on the spices. Nyonya has a few desserts that I haven't seen at any other Malaysian place (like Penang or Jaya). While the food and the prices here have been decent, I've decided of late that Nyonya isn't spicy enough for my tastes. It's worth going to try, but don't expect a mouth-burning experience.
