good home cooked peranakan fare

Was recommended to try this out and wasn't disappointed. Favourite dishes were well prepared and the surprise was really the ngoh hiang which was big but surprisingly tender. Would come again.

Unless you are willing to pay $40 per head for average nonya food in an ordinary restaurant with not much ambience, do not visit this place.

When I was there, the restaurant was very empty. We tried quite a few dishes but nothing stood out. Even the dessert and drinks were small and unimpressive. I would probably be willing to pay at most $20 per pax for this standard of food. But to my surprise, the bill came up to $40 per person. I really hope they revise the prices soon. Otherwise I don't see how they are going to attract customers.

I was waiting for my friend here one evening and..... 3 tour buses full of China local tourists went in, and 2 came out.

so... this place is one of those used for tour groups....

friend finally arrived and we decided to take a look..

flipped through the menu and wow the prices :/ $12 for the smallest dish, and I wonder how small too!

the place is brightly lit, very commercialised looking...

we didn't eat here in the end.

1) the place catering to tour groups, we don't expect very good food...

2) price put us off.

maybe because there's not much business at night for cecil street area therefore they cater to tour groups.. and being in cecil street, therefore the price is sky high...

but noticing the menu had other locations, and what looks mostly like high rental areas... i think all the same = all expensive.

so up to you if you wanna try :/

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

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

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
