Old China Café

Malaysian in Chinatown, Merdeka Square & Bukit Nanas

Step through swinging, saloon-style doors into the old guild house of a laundry association, now a charming Peranakan restaurant. Calligraphy and old photographs cover the walls, and grandfather clocks and dainty marble-topped tables add to the quaint ambience. Beef rendang, succulent Nonya fried chicken and babi masak asam (tamarind pork stew) feature on the menu of Peranakan comfort food.

The same company runs the similar Precious Old China in Central Market.
