Penang Peranakan Culture and Nyonya Food Tour

December 16th, 2009Announcement14 Comments

If you love or intrigued by the Peranakan culture and Nyonya Food, you have to come to Penang—a UNESCO World Heritage site and a cradle for thriving Peranakan and Baba-Nyonya culture.

Born and raised in a Peranakan or Straits Chinese family, I have always wanted to share the beauty and legacy of the colorful and uniquely special Penang Nyonya culture and food with the world. I am very happy to announce that my family has expanded our Penang private tour services to include a special “Penang Peranakan Culture and Nyonya Food Tour” for travelers, tourists, and foodies who wish to gain an insider insight into Nyonya culture, cuisine, and traditions in Penang….

We offer one-of-a-kind Peranakan culture and Nyonya food tour that covers Peranakan museums, a glimpse of the living Nyonya culture, sampling of mouthwatering and scrumptious Nyonya food, and more. We also have access to private collectors of Nyonya antiques and artifacts that will take you down the memory lane of the bygone eras.

Our guide is very friendly, multi-lingual, attentive, and knowledgeable. If you are interested in joining our Penang Nyonya tour, please send an email to to inquire further.

We look forward to being a friend to you in Penang! See you.

    Loved the snapshot of the kitchen; reminded me of the old South Indian kitchens! Drooling over the tiffin-carriers arranged on top!

    There are a couple of reasons I don’t like this site. My mouth keeps on watering and I get very hungry for hawker food.

    Enjoyed dining at Lim’s Nyonya Hut in Glen Waverley Saturday Night the Nyonya Popiah (Fresh Spring Rolls) were a real taste treat.. :)

    Lim’s Nyonya Hut in Glen Waverley is truly authentic. Both husband and wife were taught by a great Penang Master Chef – Lim Bian Yam
