  • PERAMAKAN, KEPPEL CLUB

    It seems a little funny how I’ve been to PeraMakan probably close to 20 times already over the last few years, but somehow never thought of writing a post on it. I guess it could be because Peranakan food doesn’t feature strongly on my favourite foods list, though I do like it quite a bit as well. Peranakan food sometimes seems like the forgotten second cousin, in the culinary world – it has great history, needs a lot of skill to prepare, and tastes really unique and also delicious yet somewhat neglected by many and doesn’t get quite so much recognition, I feel.

  • PeraMakan @ Keppel Club

    A real food adventure indeed. What was meant to be a leisurely stroll to One-Marina for lunch at Prive found us getting lost and trekking nearly three full kilometers to the nearby Keppel Club. Starved by that time, we decided to try PeraMakan, a traditional Peranakan restaurant located within the Club’s premises. Read More…
  • Review: Peramakan @ Santa Grand Hotel

    *Please note that PeraMakan at Santa Grand Hotel is closed. “The Little Nyonya”, a blockbuster drama, produced by Mediacorp and aired years ago threw the Peranakan culture into the spotlight. And how can the cuisine be neglected with Singapore being a foodie nation? My parents, because of the show, went to a Peranakan restaurant to try the food. I didn’t go with them because I had other engagements and ever since then, I’ve been wanting to try authentic Peranakan food. So, thank you Street Directory and Peramakan for the invite! Read More…
  • Peramakan Deli: Quick Ayam Buah Keluak Fix

    Fans of Nonya cuisine would be very happy to learn that Peramakan, (my favourite Peranakan restaurant) has just opened a deli along East Coast Road where they fill their pies, buns and sausage rolls with their delectable dishes! Can you imagine the reaction you get from your unknowing house guests when they bite into a pie and discover that its beef rendang? Or when they bite into a polo bun to find Ayam Buah Keluak inside? I thought it was a fantastic idea!   Read More…
  • The Peramakan Makan Session: Power Peranakan!

    I can’t speak for the rest, but last Saturday’s Makan Session at Peramakan was probably my best Peranakan meal ever. The food was great and the Tok Panjang (Long Table) was very Panjang! (Long). Not only was the food excellent, but there were so many new Nonya dishes that I have never tried before! (I don’t have the privilege of having a Nonya Grandma). In fact, even some of the Peranakan kakis went home determined to find out more about certain dishes from their Grandmothers and why they never cooked it for them! Read More…
  • Peramakan: Still the One to Beat!

    Peramakan has been my gold standard for Peranakan food since I blogged them back when they were still in Joo Chiat. Since then they’ve moved over to Keppel Club and I heard rumours that perhaps the standard of the food had dropped. So it is time to revisit them again to find out the truth. I am glad (and very relieved) to report that all is well with my favourite Nonya’s cooking! Read More…
  • Peramakan – As Peranakan as it gets

    This restaurant is the rave of my fellow makankakis at the makansutra forum. So if everyone says it is good then it must be good, right? So die-die-I-must try and man those guys are right! We start with the most recognizable of Peranakan food the Ayam Buah Keluak. Every wonder if they ever use this Buah Keluak Nut for anything else? I thought at first that this nut has been created only for this one dish. But thanks to makanguru eslim, I found out that they actually use it to make Nasi Rawon as well! Read More…
  • Singapore – PeraMakan at Keppel Club for yummy Peranakan Food

    As you may know if you follow my blog, I tend to have quite a few work dinners. I get bored of the same old places and types of food (if we ask certain colleagues, they always go for Chinese or Seafood). I dislike the stuffy atmospheres of the places and therefore we have started looking for new places to try and keep the organising to ourselves. I thought we had never done Peranakan food (Straits Chinese, the official name for the combination of Chinese and Malay cultures) for one of these dinner, and friends had recently been to PeraMakan and enjoyed it so we decided to try that out.
