REVIEW & MEDIA
One of the few restaurants in Melbourne to serve Peranakan or Nyonya cuisine, Bababoi stands out from the crowd with offerings that really pack a flavour punch.
Bababoi celebrates the fusion style of Nyonya cuisine, with distinctive blend of Chinese and Malay techniques, flavours and spices. If you like your South East Asian flavours rich and gutsy, you cannot go wrong here.
Definitely visit Bababoi if you’re looking for a cultural escape to experience another cuisine. It’s a great addition to a part of town historically lacking in good food options
