新加坡作為國際大都會,一直有不少精品餐館值得一嚐,近日就去了在地人推介位於丹戎巴葛區(Tanjong Pagar) 老建築內的「Blue Ginger」,這是新加坡最古老的娘惹餐廳之一,除了獲得Michelin的推介外,本身也曾入選世界五十家最佳餐館之一。娘惹菜是中國和馬來傳統食物的融合的精華,跟馬來菜最大的分別是會用上豬肉入饌,自己本身也許也因媽媽家那邊是印尼華僑的原故,自小也對東南亞菜有一定的情結。這家的料理十分出色,Babi Pong Tay和Beef Rendang是我個人比較喜歡的菜品,拌飯一流,是人間美味呀

Every patron is subjected to pay a sum of $2.60, a miscellenous charge which include unlimited portion of rice, sambal belachan and a portion of Achar. Though it tasted fair ordinary, it's a good to have for an appetizer as it really whet our appetite to come.

Opening our meal session will be one of Pernankan's staple, Kueh Pie Te. These lovely crisp little cups filled with braised turnips, shredded bamboo shoots, topped with half a prawn and sambal chilli. There were good but not the best I had so far. It would be good, if the cups are bigger in size and spicier.

Ngo Heong is also one of their specialities. With minced pork and prawns seasoned with five spice powder, they were fried to cripsy brown. Dab abit onto the sweet sauce and enjoy!

Being a Singaporean, Otak Otak is no stranger to us. It is a fishcake recipe with turmeric and lime leaves with galangal, chilli, candlenuts and shrimp paste. It's springy and moist texture brought gave a very good comparison to those usual ones we had. I was not too impress with this as the taste was more towards "lemak" side and thus I could not really have a good feel of the Otak.

The house's speciality was out to impress. With deboned chicken thigh meat and drumstick grilled with rich coconut milk and exotic spices. Though meat was rather tender but such Panggang dish caught me by surprise as the flavoured coconut milk had covered the grilled flavours all up.

Covering the tender beef cubes with rich coconut milk, lemon grass, lime leaves and ginger spice and also a dash of curry powder. Taste was rather standard and nothing impressive.

Chap Chye came rich in prawn broth. It came with dried prawns in between bites and taste was rich. Out of most Nonya dishes, what I like best is usually their Chap Chye, however, this was not too impressive. It lacked the Wow factor and the leaves of mixed vegetables were simply too big even though they were cooked to its soften texture. On a side note black fungs, mushrooms and tang hoon were flavourful.

Dessert of the day was rather straight forward with soursp flesh over a heap of ice. Squeeze some lemon over it and enjoy the ice cooling dessert.

An addition to the original Chendol with durian over it. Durian did not let out its strong smelling flavour initially but as we mixed in everything, it started to reveal a little. I was a little disappointment with its use of durian paste instead of the real flesh. (Perhaps, I'm thinking too much as this is durian season). The classic ingredients like sweetened red beans, coconut jelly with Gula Melaka and coconut cream were all in.

Thick creamy coconut topped the fine ice with Gula Melaka pour onto it. Digging down into the ice, sago beads as well as honey sea coconut strips were revealed. A good refreshing treat after meal.

Though they were awarded by a number of medias and with such centralised location, it is no doubt that it caught aplenty of foreigners dining in there. If you were looking for some up-scale environment for Peranakan Cuisine, The Blue Ginger Restaurant may be a very good choice. Hits and misses, personally, having been to a number of places with Peranakan dishes, it was a slight disappointment here. In fact I was expecting better and would leave an impression that worth a return.

Its spicy but the hotness is acceptable for those who are afraid of being in a heat.
Makan for Weddings can also be held there as the Interior is definitely worth the treat.

There is the juhu kangkong, which had nice fried onion to go with the vegetables. The vegetables were not too oily and are definitely cooked to perfection!

Peranakan food hardly comes across my mind, though this famous Peranakan restaurant is really near to my house, I have yet to patronise, shame! Anyway, it was because the TV programme shot about another Peranakan restaurant, it raised my interest in trying it.

As usual, I would browse reviews for these 2 restaurants for reference. Blue Ginger got the best votes so far, whereas, the other one got constructive comments but the owner couldn’t accept them, kept arguing over the reviews. Henceforth, I picked Blue Ginger.

We reached there right before the lunch crowd, we were led to a 2 seat-table at ground floor as they have upper floor too. I could see they serve customers politely, they would pull chair for lady as a courtesy. Come to ordering, frankly, I don’t know much about their menu, we just ordered the most common signature dishes. First, I tried the complimentary Achar, it was the best achar I have tasted so far. I finished the whole plate and left nothing for my partner! All dishes were up to our expectation, taste nice and moderate portion. Bean curd roll with variety of filling, it made up the full taste, really satisfy. Chicken with black nut, well, it was an interest dish to us, chicken was a bit dried and tough though, black nut was fun to eat.

To complete the meal, dessert is a must have item for me. I ordered durian chendol, chendol was fine, surprisingly durian taste was really intense. The after taste left so long in my mouth! It wasn’t too sweet.

I think I would return for more Peranakan food.

This is quite a good peranakan restaurant, the food is sedak, appetising and fulfilling and the price is quite resonable. We have ordered quite many dishes, like sambal kang kong, otah otah, asham prawn and curry vegetables. Their serving is quite generous too, i have to refill my rice in order to finish the dishes. Ha. Actually, its the dishes really open up my appetite, thats why i need second serving of rice.Overall, the ambience and the meal is quite satisfing.

we order Itek Tim for our soup, it is duck with salted vege. very salty and sourish, but tje duck is very soft and tender after being boiled for sometime.

the babi pon tay was very tasty! love the gravy, thick and delicious, goes really well with the rice! the meat is cooked until it is soft and tender. so yummy!

the Chap Chye Masak Titek is very good as well, the vegetables are cooked until they are very soft! the gravy got this prawny taste, very thick and tasty.

the Udang Kuah Pedas Nanas is the ultimate killer. they used tiger prawns and the prawns are so fresh and sweet. it is crunchy when u bite into it. the pineapple gravy is very sour, opens up ur appetite.

the meal is very fulfilling! very satisfied and pleased with the service as well! ambiance very good too! yum!
