From the 16th to 20th centuries, the Straits Settlement of Penang, Malacca and Singapore became the "melting pots" for the widely varied cultures of the Chinese, Malays, Indians, Indonesians, Arabs and Jews.

The early Chinese settlers who came here to make their fortunes, soon set down roots and intermarried with the local races. Out of this unique union, emerged a remarkably individual people the Straits born Chinese or the Peranakans.

Today their descendents enjoy a set of customs, culture, language and values wholly of their own.

Their speech is colourful; predominantly Malay, liberally sprinkled with Chinese as well as a smattering of English, Portuguese and Indian words. Conversely, Peranakans observe the traditional Chinese practice of ancestor worship, while embracing the teaching of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism. As a result, a full scale Peranakan ceremony is an impressive affair of ornate costumes and elaborate rituals.

The house-proud Peranakans have evolved a distinct architectural style that is known affectionately as "Chinese Baroque" or "Chinese Palladin". Between the 1830s and 1920s, many fine traditional terrace houses were erected.

Out of all their attributes, the Peranakans are best known for their celebrated cuisine, developed after years of expertise in their kitchens.As their preparations are often complicated, few restaurants can actually claim to specialise in authentic Peranakan cuisine. The main ingredients used in their dishes are Chinese, but with the influence of Malay, Indian, Indonesian, Thai and European styles of cooking.

Alas, this rich heritage is rapidly diminishing in these modern times but all is not lost. Sri Melaka Vegetarian Nyonya Restaurant has been specifically dedicated to the culture of these people. It is here that customers can enjoy and relive the rich ands unique heritage of the Nyonya and Babas.
