The inspiration behind our starting “blue ginger” cannot be fully explained without first sharing with you the aspects of peranakan culture. As a peranakan, the signature of a well-bred “Nonya”, or Straits Chinese lady, was how well one could cook. It was often the matriarch of the family who would bring the entire family together, over a mouth-watering spread of spicy and aromatic dishes. Our journey of rediscovery was prompted by these fond memories of hearty feasts at grandma’s. The Blue Ginger was created simply through our desire to share our unique culture with others. Today, the restaurant is run by a team of people who are passionate towards this end.
