Discovering the Magic of Nonya Delicatessen: A Family Legacy and Singapore’s Best-Kept Culinary Secret

Have you ever wondered where Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Creative Chairman Sim Wong Hoo go to satisfy their cravings for the best nonya mee siam? Look no further than Nonya Delicatessen, a humble but famous food stall in Bukit Timah Plaza, which also happens to be the go-to spot for MediaCorp artistes like Pierre Png and Andrea de Cruz.

A Blast from the Past: The Origins of Nonya Delicatessen

Nonya Delicatessen’s history dates back to 1980 when Damian Lim’s mother ran the nonya food stall at the bustling Bukit Timah Plaza. Fast forward to today, Damian, now a father of four, runs the stall with his second son Darryl. The family’s passion for cooking is evident as Damian’s mother still supervises food quality, ensuring that each dish remains true to its roots.

Why Nonya Delicatessen is Worth the Hype

Nonya Delicatessen has withstood the test of time, serving up mouthwatering dishes for over 25 years. What makes this humble stall stand out from the rest? It’s Damian’s friendly and attentive customer service, honed during his six years as an SIA cabin crew member. His warm nature and the personal touch he brings to each interaction make visiting Nonya Delicatessen an unforgettable experience.

The True Star: Authentic Nonya Cuisine

Of course, it wouldn’t be a food haven without the delicious nonya dishes that keep customers coming back for more. The stall’s signature mee siam, laksa, and Nasi Kunyit are crafted with love and passion, using the finest ingredients. Damian’s dedication to his craft has even earned him rave reviews from ST Life!, 8 Days, and Singapore’s Best Food Online Directory.

When asked about the secret to his culinary success, Damian shares, “It’s the passion. If you don’t have passion when you cook, passion in the ingredients that you choose, it won’t work out. Every bowl represents my passion for cooking.”

Pushing Boundaries: Innovation and Improvement

Damian’s culinary journey doesn’t stop at mastering traditional nonya dishes; he’s constantly looking for ways to improve and innovate. His mother takes pride in the fact that some customers prefer Damian’s laksa over her own, seeing it as a testament to his commitment to raising the bar.

Exciting Changes Ahead

Nonya Delicatessen will be closing its doors for a brief period later this year to undergo renovations, but fear not – they’ll be back with a fresh new look, ready to serve up even more delicious nonya delights.
