Peramakan

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.

my favourite peranakan restaurant

I grew up eating peranakan food. This is authentic. Do note that each peranakan cook has their own take on recipes. Food here is yummy and captures the essence of peranakan cooking. Rending is great. Desserts are special too and they offer some rare hard to find traditional nonya items. Tip: if you are driving and not a member of Keppel club. Park at the multi storey carpark before the main open air car park entrance. It is MUCH cheaper.

rudest restaurant in Singapore

We arrived at 9pm and were given a menu and asked for our drinks order. Only after the drinks arrived did a smarmy waiter arrive saying most items are not available. So hubby turns to me and says - this means the chef is too lazy to cook anything else. Smarmy waiter realised we are it his usual passive clientele and sharply changes his tune saying order what we like and he will ask the chef to cook. Order comes and food is good however at 9.30 they want to close the bill after trying to empty an entire bottle of wine as fast as they possibly can into our glasses. At 9.45 they tell us they are closing, turn off air con, pack their bags then at 9.50 and 9.55 keep comin up saying they are closed! Worst service and overall bad manners I have ever seen in Singapore and probably all of Asia!

Decent Peranakan Food

I have been here twice and both times have come out satisfied.

This time we ordered;
 
- AYAM BUAH KELUAK (Chicken braised with the Indonesian black nuts),
- IKAN GARAM ASSAM (Red snapper fillets are cooked in a spicy garam assam gravy with brinjals and ladyfingers),
- BEEF RENDANG,
- SAMBAL KANGKONG,
- NYONYA NGOH HIANG WITH LUAK CHYE          

My favourite was the chicken - I love the black nut sauce. The beef rendang lacked flavour (the sauce was a bit too watery for my liking) however the beef was nice and tender.

The fish was nicely cooked and very tender. And the sambal kangkong packed a punch.

The NYONYA NGOH HIANG WITH LUAK CHYE was interesting. It was nothing to rave on about but it wasnt bad either.

For dessert we had the BUBOH CHA CHA (yams and sweet potatoes served in a light coconut sauce with sago pearls) and APOM BERKUAH (Rice flour pancakes served with warm banana sauce). The flavours were nice and my only complaint is that I would have liked more yams, sweet potato & sago pearls in my BUBOH CHA CHA.

Overall, the quality of food was good except they dont serve their food piping hot and that is what I prefer.

It's ok but not impressive

Ordered beef rendang, sambal kakung, nonya chap chai, curry fish and ayam hitam. I believed the food was pre-made and then heated up. The food was tasty but I persoanlly was not impressed. Beef rendang was tender. But cos I have tried more delicious and authentic rwndang, I would not rave about it. there was also too much msg to the food and all of us was very thirty after dinner. At first I wanna bring my parents there but now I have reseravtion.

Peranakan homecooking at its finest

Get the full review at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com

Peramakan is one of the most beloved Peranakan restaurants around. Located in the yuppie club of choice, Keppel Club, it's a short drive in from Telok Blangah Road. The restaurant is totally accessible if you don't drive; we saw a number of people walking in from the main road as well. This club is right on the waterfront facing Sentosa, so even if you can't quite see the water's edge from the main building, you can certainly smell the salty seabreeze as you step out of the elevator onto the third floor where the restaurant is at.
 
 Lunchtime here is a breeze, without a need for reservations as the homely restaurant was barely filled. Dinnertime, though, is a different matter entirely, and reservations are highly recommended. Service was great, attentive and unintrusive. My water goblet was never more than half-empty. Food-wise, it was Peranakan homecooking at its finest. Not a single complaint can be raised about any of their dishes.

 We had:

1) Nonya Ngoh Hiang ($10): Meaty, moist and textured

2) Ayam Buah Keluak ($16): succulent, fork-tender chicken but you only get 2 nuts. For extra nuts, you gotta shell out an additional $1.50 each

3) Itek Sio ($16): fresh and tender

4) Babi Pongtay ($14): pork belly is used here so it's awesome. Sauce was rich and flavourful

5) Beef Rendang ($16): Here, the shin portion was braised till meltingly tender. Possibly the most tender beef rendang ever
