Peranakan Place, Auburn

Peranakans are descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in Penang, 
Malacca and Singapore inter-marrying with local Malays.
They address themselves as Baba-Nyonya. 
Baba refers to men and Nyonya refers to women. 

Peranakan or Nyonya cuisine is a unique flavour combination of 
Chinese and Malay cuisines like this Nyonya Paper-wrapped Chicken recipe here.
It is tough to find Peranakan food in Sydney but today,
 I will share with you this exciting and often overlooked cuisine 
at Peranakan Place which only opened in Auburn a few months ago!
A bit far from where I live but the delicious authentic dishes make it well worth the drive. 

Also see more of Peranakan cuisine at Chilli Padi Nonya Cafe in Singapore.

 Nyonya ware or Straits Chinese porcelain

 Nyonya ware are exclusively used by the Straits Chinese community in the Malay Peninsula and Singapore. 
They are used during festive and special occasions like wedding, birthdays and anniversaries.
