Situated on Siddely Street, Bababoi Kitchen & Bar is a modern Malaysian Nyonya restaurant, with raw brick walls and industrial-chic detailing making it one of Docklands trendiest eateries. Nyonya cuisine was one of the first types of Asian fusion cuisine, and combines influences from both Malaysia and China, and at Bababoi Kitchen & Bar Melbourne foodies can discover this distinctive cuisine for themselves. Start off with some acar pancake or chicken lollipop before trying some otak otak (fish custard made from ground fish meat, spices and coconut milk), or the babi assam (slow-cooked pork flavoured with tangy, tamarind based herbs). One of Melbourne’s most stylish Asian fusion restaurants, Bababoi Kitchen & Bar can get busy. Book a table in advance to avoid having to wait!
The atmosphere was trendy and relaxed with friendly and fast service. The food was nicely spiced, but with way too much oil for our taste
