Rojak, Ban Chang Kueh, Char Kway Teow, Chendol....I didn't expect the number of food stalls at TANGS basement to increase to the scale of a food court all of a sudden.
It was an unplanned decision to dine-in there with Pretty Mum as we were merely there to browse and buy some kitchen gadgets. With a weakness for all things Peranakan and spicy, we found a quick spot to try one of the stalls, Peramakan, since we only tried its Nyonya Buns and Kuehs from its takeaway outlet in Joo Chiat few years ago
The Nyonya Mee Siam ($6) is both tart and tangy, served with the powerful chincalok sauce for the extra kick. This dry version may be quite scarce on the ingredients like shrimps, etc. but it tastes even more flavorful than the usual wet Mee Siam. Even Pretty Mum who is super picky about her mee siam gave her thumb of approval.
Looking at the display of assorted chap chye and rendang, we could not resist the temptation but ordered some to go along with the Mee Siam (3 assorted dishes with rice at $7.80). Unfortunately, out of the 3 choices, I only enjoyed the Nyonya Chap Chye. The Pineapples Assam Fish was not fresh and it was difficult to ignore the powdery texture of the fish. Meanwhile, the Curry Vegetables could do with less coconut milk.
Interestingly, Peramakan has introduced a new series of French pastries with an Asian twist, on top of their already wide variety of kuehs and cakes. I instantly picked the two massive Cream Puffs in Teh Halia and Kopi Susu ($4.50), which sounded intriguing and unique.......

I always think that people who live in the East is very lucky because Joo Chiat/Tanjong Katong area is an enclave of good food, wanton mee, nasi padang, prawn noodle….etc. And now, this Peranakan deli shop adds to the list. The first thing that caught my eyes are the buns ($1.50 or 6 for $8) that looked like HK-style Bo Luo Bun. Perhaps due to the dominant flavours of Nyonya fillings, the sugary crust did not stand out like those from Crystal Jade.The Sambal Petai Savoury Bun is the best out of

The Sambal Petai Savoury Bun is the best out of the three. I thought it would be loaded with the petai vegetable bean but I found more prawns instead, which were considered huge for bread. I love the fiery spicy kick, which nearly knocked me off from my TV couch (was enjoying this in front of TV).

Their pies ($1.90 or 6 for $10) look petite but is heavy on fillings. The Ayam Kleo Meat Pie and Babi Pontay Meat Pie won the Seafood Otah Roll ($2.20, picture below) , which did not have a fully flaky crust despite reheating. TheAyam Kleo (nyonya curry chicken with potatoes) sounds like a typical curry puff, but is much balanced and interesting in flavours due to the sweet shortcrust pastry......

Pandan desserts are my favourite but both Pandan Portugese Egg Tart ($1.50) and Pandan Swiss Roll with Kaya could be revised with more pandan. Pandan swiss roll had slightly dry texture that day. Durian cream puffwas marginal, not too different from those elsewhere. ......

For the average price of not more than $2, the portion of the buns is considered very substantial. They were either overstuffed or the bun dough was too thin as fillings were dropping out from the base. But it's a very minor issue and I am not complaining about having more of the delicious sambal petai. There is no eat-in area but you can buy and enjoy in the comfort of your house sofa.

A full-fledged Peranakan bakery is hard to come by these days. Would not it be great if we have more cafes selling traditional peranakan treats instead of cupcakes?
