Nonya food lovers looking for a quick fix for their cravings may know of this cozy establishment called O’nya Sayang at Tampines Mall, or at their most recent outlet at Paya Lebar Square. Three months into the opening, and after nearly getting lost (as Google Maps told me that Paya Lebar Square was at Tai Seng), I finally made my sojourn down to the East to experience the flavours. Straight up, O’nya Sayang features homely dishes that are both traditional and modern. As their founder Zan Ho told me, the restaurant is targeted at the younger generation who may or may not know about Peranakan cuisine. From all the dishes I tried, I must say that these dishes are generally flavourful and good. While there is only so much you can do to make Peranakan dishes healthier (i.e for the younger crowd’s demands), I thought that O’nya Sayang is worth the try.

My first and closest encounter with Mexican cuisine was probably the ones I had while on a study abroad trip to the USA. I was impressed for its convenience, affordability as well as the assortment of flavours that seemed packed around a tortilla. When I heard that a new restaurant called El Mero Mero just opened in Singapore with an aim to serve up delicious modern Mexican cuisine, I was keen to reconnect with some memories of past. But boy, was I surprised with how they recreated Mexican food. Simply put, they revolutionised my imagination and flavours of the simple Taco while introducing me to hint of Mexican creations!
