4. Nyonya Peranakan Food
The Baba Nyonya presence in Melaka in centuries created intermarriage cuisine in between Chinese and Malay. This intermarriage cuisine is Nyonya or Peranakan food and they are widely available in Melaka.
Some of the popular Nyonya food is Nyonya Laksa, Chicken Pongteh or Pork Pongteh and also a variety of desserts. My personal favourite is nyonya laksa which is flavourful and a little bit of spicy. There are many Nyonya Peranakan specialty restaurants in Melaka now due to the rise of the tourism industry. One of the popular ones is Nancy’s Kitchen near Jonker Street.
