O’nya Sayang’s duo of Asian restaurants in Singapore are all about helping a new generation rediscover the pleasures of Peranakan cuisine in a setting that is far removed from the rustic kampong setting normally associated with this culinary tradition. The restaurant’s name means ‘love of a Peranakan mother’, and indeed here in the Tampines Mall, right by the station along Tampines Central, you can get your fill of classic Peranakan dishes, cooked just like your nyonya used to.
Check out O’nya Sayang’s special menu and their signature set menu!
The two O’nya Sayang restaurants – here in Singapore’s Tampines Mall and another at Paya Lebar Square Mall – were founded by executive chef Zan Ho, who grew up in a traditional Peranakan kitchen learning how to cook the famous blend of Straits Chinese and Malay cuisines that forms the tradition from his mother and aunties. Using a careful blend of exotic ingredients and spices, O’nya Sayang’s kitchens turn out fragrant and complex dishes, some of which take days to prepare.
Take your seats at O’nya Sayang’s clean-lined and bright premises inside the Tampines Mall along Tampines Central and you’ll already notice the aromas of traditional Peranakan cuisine pervading the space. This inspired, ancient Asian fusion cuisine is well-loved in Singapore, but rarely is it given a classy restaurant treatment. Here at O’nya Sayang you can find all the classics, from ngoh hiang and ayam buah keluak, bakwan kepeting soup, ikan assam pedas, to babi pongteh and nyonya chap chye plus many others like the highly recommended beef rendang.
