If you’re ever doing some shopping around Jewel Changi Airport or are simply picking up your loved ones from the departure gates, perhaps you might want to consider having Baba Nyonya for a meal.

This new Peranakan restaurant first opened its doors on 1 Mar 2023 and is located at Terminal 3.

This new Peranakan restaurant is helmed by Chef Dine who grew up in a Chetti Peranakan household in Melaka, thus exposing him to a fusion of Malay, Chinese and Indian culinary influences. With Baba Nyonya, he aims to make Peranakan food accessible to people outside of the community.

This led to him creating a contemporary take on traditional dishes, with a fusion of different cultures whilst adding his own personal touch.
