JAWI HOUSE

JAWI PERANAKAN HERITAGE CUISINE

simply unforgettable, food for feasting

Jawi House was established by the Karim family of Punjabi-Jawi Peranakan ancestry , dating back six generations in George Town and four generations of women who created this incredible cuisine. Jawi Peranakan cuisine is known by the Malays as 'food for feasting' and we assure you that dining at Jawi House takes you back centuries of magical culinary history, along the early spice routes when Malay women lovingly domesticated the spices and herbs brought home by their Persian, Arab, Indian and Punjabi husbands and created a culinary experience which is simply unforgettable.

LOCAL & SUSTAINABLE

Growing up in Penang where

the culinary mosaic is highly diverse

and each meal was an adventure; 

Chef Nurilkarim thoroughly enjoyed discovering

'secret ingredients and techniques'

of preparing and cooking

Penang's various iconic dishes

hence, nurtured his love for

local cuisine and flavours. 

firmly believing in

local and sustainable sources of food,

Chef Nuril is eager to develop 

modern fine dining cuisine

with every part of the flora;

flowers, spices, shoots and herbs,

sourced from Malaysia's equatorial

gardens and rainforests.
