During the Ming Dynasty, the Emperor of China betrothed his daughter Princess Hang Li Po to the Sultan of Malacca and with her she brought the first permanent Chinese settlers in Malacca.
These Chinese-Malays were known as Peranakan, with the men called Baba and the women Nyonya or Nonya. With this, the Peranakan community has seamlessly fused the culture and customs of the Chinese and Malays to what it is today. A hybrid culture with rich heritage, the union of two cuisines brings what we now call in Malaysia, Nyonya food.
Located in the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur, Lima Blas (meaning 15 in Malay) serves up authentic, no-frills Nyonya food. Originally located at No. 15 (hence the name), Lima Blas relocated a few doors down to No. 25 and reopened its doors in October 2015 with a newly improved menu and an al-fresco bar.
As you step in, be prepared to be transported back to the good old days. At Lima Blas, every piece of decor on display has a story to tell and what better way than to reminisce over good food with great company.
