Peranakan or Nonya cuisine combines Chinese, Malay and other influences into a unique blend. Peranakans are descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in Penang, Malacca, Indonesia and Singapore, inter-marrying with local Malays. The old Malay word nonya (also spelled nyonya), a term of respect and affection for women of prominent social standing (part “madame” and part “auntie”), has come to refer to the cuisine of the Perakanans.
Teh Tarik is a hot Indian milk tea. Its name is derived from the pouring process of "pulling" the drink during preparation. It is made from black tea, condensed milk, and evaporated milk. Can be served hot or cold.
