To some diners, Peranakan cuisine or Nyonya cuisine is delectable and delish to the max. However, for others who are not so into spicy food, Peranakan food can be too overwhelming. If you are still game for it, we highly recommend you take your time in trying the dishes and always have your tissue paper and ice water or soya bean beverage ready to put out any fire. Happy dining!
