Since the screening of the famous Singaporean drama – The Little Nyonya in 2008, many people were attracted to peranakan food which lead to a strong demand for authentic peranakan cuisine. Many food were featured in the drama, being a vegetarian I also wonder where could we eat authentic peranakan vegetarian. Besides Whole Earth which serve a few dishes of Peranakan food, I really wanted to try an authentic peranankan cuisine prepared by a real Baba (Male Peranakan) or Nyonya (Female Peranakan). Eventually, I found it in my travels to the cultural center of Peranakan culture in Malacca, Malaysia.

Restaurant Info – Cafe Kampung Vegetarian
Cafe Kampung Vegetarian was opened by Peranakan descendants and the small restaurant was filled with beautiful and traditional Peranakan decoration. Even the lady boss was dressed in her traditional Nyonya dress everyday in the restuarant which gave this restaurant a very authentic feel. It could get pretty busy during lunch and really crowded during weekend due to the small seating capacity.
