New Recipes

Introducing Nyonya Food (

Today, I am very happy and excited to announce the official launch of Nyonya Food at, a website that I have wanted to launch for the longest time. Nyonya food is a site that chronicles my native cuisine, the food I grew up eating–the food of my childhood. It’s also a portal about the fascinating–but hugely underrated and undiscovered–Nyonya-Baba or Peranakan culture and heritage.

If you have been following Rasa Malaysia, you know that I came from a Nyonya family as my late grandmother was a much celebrated Nyonya of her time. A few months after the successful launch of Rasa Malaysia (sometime end of 2006), I registered, with the same mission, passion, and enthusiasm I have for Rasa Malaysia. I wanted to educate the world more about the unique living culture of Nyonya-Baba or Peranakan–a sub-culture found in the British Straits settlements of Penang and Melaka (Malacca) in Malaysia, and Singapore. It was easier said than done; the domain was in dormant until very recently when I finally found time to put my vision and dream into reality…

If you are a reader of Rasa Malaysia, you will like the familiarity in presentation and style on Nyonya Food. Please hop over there and check it out now.

Thank you for your support and see you at Nyonya Food.

    very good website!! i thought this is some diff website from other ppl. i don’t really read the article. was wondered why site is similar as rasamalaysia? is that funny? :) again, very nice pics… should post more step by step pics.. thank you

  3. Congratutions! Another great news and excitement to me too! Love your new site! It brings back many fond memories to me too. Besides the food, I also like the nyonya costumers. Unfortunately, my out-of-shape figure is no longer suitable to wear it. ;(

  4. I am also from a Nyonya family. I am ashamed to say that while I love Nyonya food, I rarely prepare it and only assist in preparing the dishes during the Chinese New Year. With your website, I will definitely try my hand at making them now. Thanks for your recipes!

  5. congratulations!!! i actually stumbled on some time back but like you said it was dormant.
    looking forward to mouth-watering nyonya recipes on your new site! they will definitely come in handy when CNY rolls around. :)

    hi bee, just wondered what kind of dishes you use? it is from crate and barrel. they are very clean looking(white).

  8. Congratulation on the new launch….. I have been waiting this for years, ever since you told me about your plan….. Wish you all the success and be it as popular as RM soon.

  9. I’m from Malacca(although now in LA) and I’m so happy about this new site. I’ve never really tried Nyonya cooking in my kitchen, but I’m feeling pretty ready to try now, just for a taste of home.
