we had a group meal at daisy's last week and i must say cooking for 15pax hungry foodies isn't an easy task, we called in last mintue and managed to get a large group table booking. arrived and had the bubbly manager oreded 3 of each of their famous dishes... and boy did we hava a peranaka feast, i must say the consistancy which the food was served was impressive, its hard to cook for a large group with very little waiting time in between dishes.. dishes came out propmly and also got snapped up promply by us!i highly recomomed these few dishes if you feel down and lousy,like a bad break-up or even failing your driving test for the 6th time... nothing daisy's perenakan food cannot cure..or at least ease the pain...here's my experienc that night, i must say their killer new dish the "Asam ikan" dish is a must, pomfret cooked in asam, lemon grass, lady's finger (okra) & abugine, its so good i was hoging the dish!, the "Black ink Sotong" ( shiok, with the sotong roe and all...yummy), " Petai Sambal ikan bilis" (petai & baba can't got wrong), "Homemade Otak Otak" (champion!!), "Babi Buah Keluak" (it made me teared with joy while eating it), "Bakwan Kepiting Soup" super yummy minced pork & crab meat balls in chicken & bamboo-shoot broth to wash down all the flavourful yummy dishes (brought back memories of my childhood) was so good that i had 2 and a half bowls of rice... and to top it all of a bowl of warm "pulot itam: with extra coconut milk for desert . there were a whole lot more other dishes, like the fried chicken, babi pongtei, chap chay, ngoh hiang, they were good i presume, as i didnt get to taste them this time,because by the time the dish came round our end it was all cleaned up. i could only write what i had and had my eye on. The overall experience was sure worth it, it came up to be about $41 per/person. Some might say its slightly pricy, but do put in the thought of them using the best ingredients and produce to cook the delicious dishes with...you pay for what you get, the food at Daisy's dream Kitchen sure is super tasty and hits the spot for the 15 of us. plus how often do we get proper home cooked style peranakan food now a days in Singapore?best enjoyed with a group of mates as you get to order more dishes and try them.
