Here’s your chance to enjoy an exclusive “Taste of Malaysia” culinary experience at the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden, featuring a delightful sampling of Manhattan’s famed ‘Nyonya’ restaurant, with Miss Universe 2018 Jane Teoh!

Jane Teoh is a Malaysian fashion model and international beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe Malaysia 2018. She represented her country at the Miss Universe 2018 International Pageant in Bangkok, Thailand.

She is not just a pretty face, far from it. Jane is a student of accounting and finance and strives to be an agent of change, inspiring those around her and across the world: “I want to be remembered as a woman who made a difference. My goal as Miss Universe Malaysia is to spread my philanthropic work,” said Teoh moments before she was crowned. “Now that I’m in the public eye, I realise that I’ll have the strength to highlight important issues in society. I’m passionate about helping the underprivileged and I believe all women should be able to feel empowered. Knowing that you’ll be heard gives you confidence and fosters self-respect.”

The New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden (NYCSG) is one of two authentic classical outdoor Chinese gardens built in the United States. The NYCSG is a compilation of different gardens in China and the Greater East. A team of 40 Chinese artists and craftspeople spent a year in China creating the Garden’s components and another six months in Staten Island as craftsmen-in-residence at Snug Harbor to complete the construction. Drawing heavily on Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD) elements, all of the garden’s architectural components were fabricated in Suzhou, including roof & floor tiles, columns & beams, doors & windows, bridges and paving materials. The garden features magnificent rocks resembling mountains that inspired the poetry and paintings of Confucian, Buddhist, and Taoist monks, as well as other scholars.

You will explore eight pavilions, a bamboo forest path, waterfalls, a Koi-filled pond, Chinese calligraphy, and a variety of Ghongshi scholar’s rocks including a 15-foot formation that towers over the central courtyard. Nyonya flaunts a comfy setting composed of brick walls and basic wood tables, but really, everyone’s here for their outstanding Malaysian food. Speedy servers steer diners through the varied menu—and perhaps even away from such delicacies as prawn mee, an exceptionally spiced and sour shrimp broth with noodles, pork, vegetables and bean sprouts floating in its goodness. Asians and other locals know to stick to such faithful and deeply satisfying dishes as nasi lemak, which is a delightful combo of coconut rice, pickled veggies, crispy anchovies, curried chicken and hard-boiled egg. Mee siam spotlights noodles stir-fried with tofu and shrimp in a chili sauce that puts all others to shame, while coconut batter-fried jumbo prawns are nothing short of-omg-wow! - MICHELIN Guide The New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden (NYCSG)
