Nyoyna Sauce is unavailable until further notice. The supply chain has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The owner, who lives in Macau, is unable to return to Taiwan to complete their quarterly production. We estimate availability in August 2021 (after their next garlic harvest).

Nyonya Sauce is a garlic vinegar chili sauce originating in the Peranakan cooking traditions of Penang. It’s produced by Ewe and Yishan of Mama Nyonya, a husband and wife team based in Central Taiwan. The recipe comes from Ewe’s great grandmother, who prepared it as a condiment for the family’s daily use in Penang. The garlic used in the sauce is grown on Yishan’s family farm—the key ingredient for a startlingly fresh flavor.

Made in Changhua County, Taiwan.

Nyonya sauce is made to order for Yun Hai. Each bottle is stamped with the date of manufacture. It’s sold in two sizes: regular (3.8 oz/110g) and extra large (11.7 oz/330g). The larger size is packaged in a foil stamped box and wrapped with a ribbon. It makes a beautiful gift.

Tasting Notes and Usage
