Taste of Melaka is the brainchild of Mee Pean Cheok, a Malaysian Chinese who has been living in Amsterdam for over 10 years now.

She spent most of her life in peninsular Malaysia, growing up with the delicate pastries and the eclectic cuisine of her mother country. For 10 years she lived in Vancouver, home to one of the largest Asian communities in North-America, and learned to combine and appreciate the best of Malaysian and Chinese culinary traditions.

Mee Pean finds her passion in introducing the food she grew up to love to her new home country, and in trying to bring to other South-Asians the flavors from way-back-there-and-then.
