(Closed) PeraMakan (Santa Grand Hotel)

AsianNonyaNonya / PeranakanPeranakan

This jauntily-named Nonya family restaurant is headed by a true-blue Peranakan chef. All the familiar favourites are on the menu, as well as some of the chef's family recipes such as kari lemak udang kertak (crayfish made with a curry of ground spices and curry powder). The rendang dishes tend to be served with more sauce to suits customers' preferences.

reasonably okay peranakan food

reasonably okay peranakan food at this katong institution. this place is rather refurbed-old-school, good for family meals and is packed to the rafters on the weekends – I think I was a little disappointed by the only okay food here.   there was something about the food here that made me feel like it had been rather brusquely scooped off a buffet-style food warmer into dishes before being served to us – I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it might have been the cold dishes or the slightly muted flavor profiles.   regardless, I expect more from a restaurant (though this would have been excellent as part of a catered buffet).     I was more impressed by the less-easy-to-find desserts they served here. dad had the bubur terigu, which is wheat cooked with tender and served with palm sugar and coconut milk, and we ordered the apom berkuah – which I’ve never seen before.   this latter dish comes as a plate of griddled puffy rice-flour cakes served with a bowl of sticky cooked banana. that bowl of bananas was sweet and comforting, and a complementary rich counterpoint to the fermented-tanginess of the airy cakes. delicious, and a must-order.

Sambal Petai Bun is the Best!

A very good peramakan restaurant!

Peramakan is really a place to go to if you are into peranakan food. I initially had the intention of having more of their desserts than mains and I think I did the right choice not because the mains were not good but because I don’t have space for too many mains. It just makes me feel that I

Nice place for family makan!

I've been to this restaurant twice and I really like it. The food is nice (ayam buah keluak is sedap) and service people I encountered were all good. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Katong :)
