BEHIND THE NAME

Tranquerah is a part of the City of Malacca originating from the Portuguese word meaning palisades, entrenchments or outworks made from stakes driven into the ground, a fortress to protect the town. It seems that in the early part of the 17th century, Tranquerah Street ended at the gate of what was then the Porta da Tranqueira, as shown in Emmanuel Godinho de Eredia’s 1613 sketchplan of Malacca.

 

It is special in many ways to us as we originated from a pure Peranakan family from Tranquerah Road. Our family resided at Tranquerah Road way back from our ancestors till this generation, therefore, we would like to cherish this special name as long as we can and as solid (palisades) as it means.

 

Today, the street is called JALAN TENGKERA.

BEHIND THE CONCEPT

We maximize the elements of Peranakan houses, heritage & culture by using wooden windowpanes, doors, batik chops, wooden furniture, traditional light switches, Fraser & Neave bottles as vases, “pelita” (oil lamps), cement flooring, as our main focus of our interior decorations. To compliment the interior decoration, traditional glass jars are used to contain condiments for our drink counter such as gula malacca, sugar syrup, tealeaf, and barley. Decorative items including Kuih moulds, cigarette tins, old weighing scale and traditional ashtrays. Windowpanes are also used as our menu boards. The ambience will transport you back either to your parents’ or your childhood days, allowing you to see items you have either not seen or have not seen for a long long time.

 

Providing a unique dining experience where East-meets-West serving authentic Malacca Nyonya cuisine in a contemporary-meets-heritage setting.

BEHIND THE FOOD
