The Kristang community in Melaka pays homage to St Peter, the patron saint of fishermen through Festa San Pedro or Feast of St Peter every year. This annual celebration has transcended not only its religious purposes, it has also become a way to keep traditional rituals dating back to the 1500s alive.

San Pedro’s Night at The Majestic Malacca will feature classic dishes that highlight the unique flavour of Kristang such as Soy Limang Terung and Kari Debal. Comforting stews, fiery sambals and fragrant curries influenced by the diversity of cultures including Dutch, Portuguese, Malay, Indian and Chinese, is what makes Kristang cuisine so uniquely Malaccan.
