Nyonya Cuisine

Background information about Nyonya Cuisine

Marriages between Chinese and Malaysian were getting common and baby girl born to such inter-racial families are called Nyonya. Naturally, these girls grew up to be capable housewives managing to blend traditional Chinese food and cooking methods together with Malaysian spices. This unique fusion cuisine is called Nyonya Cuisine. Traditional Nyonya Cuisine is characterised by a well-balanced rich, sour and spicy flavour with an exotic tropical touch.
