  • Mee Siam is a Peranakan or Nonya dish from the Straits region of Malaysia and Singapore. Throughout history, the Straits region has been home to early international trade between local Malays and migrant Chinese merchants, and later subject to Portuguese, Dutch and British colonialism.

    Mee Siam is a simple prawn-flavoured fried noodle dish but the story behind it goes back literally centuries. Peranakan food like Mee Siam to me represents diversity in such a clear way. It is food that blends together a number of different cultures in a logical and practical way. Chinese migrants brought their cuisine to a region and as that cuisine mixed with local produce, culture and tastes there developed a cuisine that has become a fundamental part of the region’s identity.

  • I have many memories that are related to food, and a dish that evokes a vivid memory is this twice cooked pork belly bites with fried ginger and chilli vinegar.

    My family is not very affluent so in Malaysia, so mum would normally cook in bulk and we would have stuff the following day. As kids we used to sort of groan about it but the only thing I didn’t complain about was when she cooked this pork-belly dish because it actually tastes better the next day.
