Azalina is from Penang, a historically rich island trading hub off the western coast of peninsular Malaysia. Descended from Indian people who came to Penang several hundred years ago. Azalina is a member of the Mamak tribe, a group of people who are mostly ethnically Indian but are considered native Malaysians. The Mamak are a people who are deeply tied to spices and were renowned cooks for Malaysian royalty. After a successful career as a pastry chef, Azalina moved around, cooking in Singapore, Japan and several other countries before finally moving to the United States something she had always wanted to do. It was here in San Francisco that Azalina rediscovered her love of her Malaysian cuisine and culture, after being unable to locate any of her favorite foods locally and having a yearning for her home country cuisine.
