Nyonya Restaurant / Nonya Restaurant

In Penang, you can get to eat Nyonya-style Cuisine and most 'Chu Char' Resturants, or stalls selling economy rice in coffee shops. Most homecooks of Penang can cook some Nyonya dishes, and for the majority of the Hokkien Chinese here, Nyonya food is home-cooked daily meal. So, not suprisingly there are few restaurants that speciallizes only on Nyonya Cusine (since most Penangnites can have shuch meals at home).

Some restaurants that specializes on Nyonya Food are:
