Our Story

Memorie Café, a special established coffee café to recall a unique relationship between a Portuguese chef and Malaysia girl on this Malaya land. The founder, Ms Audrey’s father always bring her to visit an origin Portuguese restaurant during school holiday; where she and her father can always enjoy the unique taste and cooking methods of Portuguese cuisine together, and this is also the happiest bonding time between the father and daughter. 

Portuguese cuisine, especially the Portuguese Tart become part of her sweet memories in life, and when she opened this café, she integrated our truly Malaysia cooking methods into Portuguese cuisine and hence created her self-unique food dining culture. 

Been an interior designer, she insists that everything must be well-combined and measured. Here in Memorie Café, each and every portion of foods, ingredients and sources are well-mixed strictly following a prescribed formula, in order to bring out the best of the prepared foods . Thus, the food quality is highly controlled just to secure the deliciousness of foods, and to ensure the dining experience at here is always a happy and pleasant journey.

The History of Malaya

In 1511, Malacca was conquered by Portugal, after which it was taken by the Dutch in 1641. In 1824, British took control of Malacca following Anglo-Dutch Treaty. By 1826, the British directly controlled Penang, Malacca, Singapore & island of Labuan and established crown colony of the Straits Settlements. 

Early 19th century, under British rules, thousands of Chinese immigrants came to Malaya in search of better life. Most Malaysian Chinese today are descended from this wave of immigrants. Most of whom are from the Fujian and Guangdong provinces in the south east coast of Mainland China – Nanyang. 

This wave, considered the largest influx of immigration to Malaysia brought several different Chinese subgroups such as Hokkien, Cantonese, Hakka,  Hainanese, Teochew and so on….

As a result of historical migrations, colonization by foreign powers and its geographical position, Malaysia’s culinary style in the present day is primarily a melance of traditions from its Malay, Chinese, Indian and heavy to light influences from Portugese, Dutch and Eurasion cuisines. This resulted in a symphony of flavours, making Malaysian cuisine highly complex and diverse.
