The Origins of Peranakan or Nonya Cuisine
Peranakan or Nyonya cuisine originated with Chinese immigrants who settled in Singapore and Indonesia. Their signature cooking style blended with the local flavours and ingredients, creating something entirely new and supremely delicious. The old word “nonya” or “nyonya,” from the Malaysian tongue, refers to a revered and beloved female member of the family, and is often used in reference to Peranakan cooking as well.
Peranakan Buffet Appetizers and Starters
Start out your meal with a delicious appetizer of homemade seafood Ngoh Hiong, accompanied by Thai chili dip. These five-spice rolls, wrapped in delicate beancurd skin, are the ideal way to prepare your guests’ palates to enjoy the rest of the meal. We also offer Kuih Pai Tee with condiments as an appetizer. Follow up the Ngoh Hiang with Nonya Dry Mee Siam, beautifully thin rice vermicelli fried to perfection.
Peranakan Buffet Main Dishes
For the main courses, you can select from a variety of our popular Peranakan dishes. Try the Nonya chicken curry with potatoes, or serve up the delicacy Ayam Masak Buah Keluak. Sweet and sour fish is always a crowd-pleaser, as is our Assam Fish Fillet with pineapples. If you’re a lover of fried rice, include our signature Peranakan salted fish fried rice with bean sprouts or the sambal belachan fried rice in your buffet spread.
Other options include Sambal Sotong made from fresh squid and presented on banana leaves, Nonya Fish Otah wrapped in banana leaves, or the wonderfully complex mixed vegetable stew known as Nonya chap chye. For seafood fans, there is Prawn Sambal Petai or Asam Prawn with pineapples, as well as sweet and spicy sotong, fish fillets in curry sauce, or barbecued fish otah in banana leaves. Broccoli and mushrooms are excellent side options for vegetable lovers.
Peranakan Buffet Desserts and Drinks
Dessert choices like Bubur Pulut Hitam or green bean soup finish off the meal with a touch of smooth sweetness. You can also choose to have assorted nonya queh, bite-sized desserts like kueh lapis, pulut inti, ondeh ondeh, and kueh dadar. From the rainbow colors of kueh lapis to the tiny sweet packages of pulut inti, your guests will be happy to finish their meal as deliciously as it began.
Indulge your guests with our specialty drinks. Fruit punch, pink guava, or Aloha fruit punch will quench your guests’ thirst and leave them ready for another helping from the buffet.
