PeraMakan is a play of words from the word “Peranakan” meaning “local-born” and “Makan”, a Malay word for “to eat”. Hence, the name, PeraMakan was born; a marriage of two great cultures, the rich culinary heritage of the Peranakans and Singaporean’s favourite past time, “to makan”.
Four pieces of Peranakan tiles of vibrant colours, joined together to form a square were chosen as our logo as they symbolise the home. Home is where good, authentic Peranakan food originates. The homes of the Peranakans are often decorated with colourful tiles. Colour is very important to the Peranakans and plays a significant role in their food, clothes and crockery. It connotes VIBRANCY, an apt description of the Peranakans who are a people with lots of joie de vivre. In Chef Kathryn’s childhood home, colourful tiles help to break the monotony of the white tiles in the kitchen.At PeraMakan, the tiles remind us that food should be like what we have at home, wholesome, delicious and generous in portions. As you enter PeraMakan, you will see colourful tiles embedded in our service counters. May the tiles remind us that at PeraMakan, we serve you good food cooked with love…
