I was driving around the Bayan Baru area with my family looking for a place to have dinner (on 19 December 2017), and found a Nyonya restaurant called Peranakan Passion in D’Piazza Mall (Address: D’Piazza Mall, 70-1-19, Jalan Mahsuri, 11950 Bayan Baru, Penang. Tel: 018-4625608). We like Nyonya food, so decided to give it a try.
Peranakan Passion Nyonya Restaurant specializes in Malaccan-styled Peranakan cuisine, which is slightly different from the Penang-styled ones. Some of the popular dishes here are ayam buah keluak, ayam ponteh, itik tim, and devil’s curry (hot curry chicken inspired by the Portuguese). We ended up ordering the ayam ponteh, stir-fried sweet potato leaves, and belanda eggs. The dishes served to us was excellent. My wife commented that the food was not as oily as other Nyonya restaurants.
The dining area in the restaurant was clean and tidy. It was very comfortable dining here.
Peranakan Passion is now one of my favourite Nyonya restaurants (I normally go to Nyonya Breeze Desire at Straits Quay).
