hearty home cooked peranaka dishes ...to easy the pain when you fail your driving test

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.

if i know the price is considered very very expensive for hdb area, i would not go there, i rather go to restaurant at shopping mall, at first, i tot the location is at quite remote hdb area, the price should be ok, when they served the food it is so small portion, 5 small ngoh hiong for $8, one small bowl of chap chye $8 (and nothing special) the rice is $1 per plate, it is equivalent price at shopping mall restaurant, unless they are using nohya rice, ha ha ha. if u cannot imagine how the price look like, they are selling one canned drink at $2.50 exclusive service charge at 10 percent, so you need to pay $2.75 for one canned of drink at hdb area. when i called and feedback to them, it seemed like he was very rushed to put down the phone.

I've heard rave reviews about the Peranakan cuisine served here and decided to bring some friends to check the place out together.

We ordered quite a few dishes and the taste is actually all good. The only problem for me is the price of things. The dishes tho tasty, it's serving is small. Thus, we had to order a lot of items.

Another downer was the price of rice. It's at $1 a bowl and it's a pretty small bowl! Not the big mound of rice given in Zichar places at all. So the 7 adults and 2 kids paid $14 just for rice!

The owners and staff are friendly and attentive but I don't think I'll return unless it's a treat. Not quite worth it's weight in gold for me.

Nicey But Pricey

Cannot deny Food is superb, family & staff are

friendly....I did not come expecting it to be food court or hawker price, but

at first look, the price may look ok on the menu. However, the portion does not

equate the price. If u have 4 persons u better order more varieties to have

enough to fill yourself up, otherwise definitely not enough. But this is ultimately

a HDB heartland. And not forgetting

there is the 10% service charge to consider. Still thinking of the Ngoh Hiang

and black ink squid though. Key disappointment, the no big deal Bo Bo cha cha,

too thick, too little. If the price is adjusted appropriately, I would have

been there at least twice or thrice a week since I'm living very close by.

Bottom line...if the price is reasonable in relation to the portion, you would

probably order everything on the menu because most of it is nice.

This petai with ikan bilis is a must eat at Daisy's. Plus other dishes. We also had the pleasure of meeting Mr Daisy who was around this day.

Ambience: Still comfortable, easy parking (free on Sunday).

Food: Petai - still delicious, full of flavour, crispy ikan bilis lightly spiced; pork buah keluak - it was so good we ordered 2 portions, just like the way my granny prepared; a beef redang, rather lean but good for health; and the itek "tiem" duck soup. All tasty, eaten with rice.

Value: Reasonable but not hawker priced.

Service: Family business, so family in service

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
