Peranakan (or Nyonya) cuisine is the result of blending Chinese ingredients with various distinct spices and cooking techniques used by the Malay/Indonesian/Thai/Indian community.

Key ingredients include coconut milk, galangal (a subtle, mustard-scented rhizome similar to ginger), candlenuts as both a flavoring and thickening agent, laksa leaf, pandan leaves, belachan (shrimp paste), tamarind juice, lemongrass, torch ginger bud, jicama, fragrant kaffir lime leaf, and cincalok (sour and salty shrimp-based condiment that is typically mixed with lime juice, chillies and shallots).

Protected content is one of the Nyonya restaurants which comes as one of the highly recommended for superb Peranakan food.

Transport on your own or we could meet somewhere in KL for a car ride to this restaurant.

After lunch, perhaps a stroll thru Jonker Walk might follow.
