This vibrant and cozy restaurant, located on the bustling Jalan Telawi 3, is easily identified by its neon pink sign, displaying the name of its patroness like her own casually elegant handwritten signature. Guests have three seating options: outside among languishing greenery; inside at spacious royal blue booths; or at the bar, where they will get the best view of the restaurant’s eclectic design.
Inside, the walls are brought to life by an exuberant mural of tropical flora and a hodgepodge of quirky tiles. Authentic Nyonya touches accent the tableware, as each plate, bowl, and spoon is a unique work of art hand-selected from the treasure troves of Chinatown’s antique shops. Going deeper, the bathroom walls are lined with faded, antique portraits of Nyonya families, balancing trend with tradition and giving the place a sense of being protected by ancient and venerable souls. But, in case you were afraid they might sober up the atmosphere, a neon sign cheekily displays, “Nyonya Business” above their sepia-toned heads.
