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

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.
