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.
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
