During the peak of Little Nyonya, I went to 3 different peranakan restuarants to try out the food and here’s my take.
First Restaurant (True Blue)
This Peranakan restaurant is found in Armenian Street, very very close to The Substation and the new Peranakan Museum.
The ambience is amazing. It really feels like stepping into a peranakan home. I feel like a little baba already. 😛
And check out their menu!
But I must comment that the food is pretty pricy. In the end, we only order 3 dishes….. which the most signature dish was Yu Zhu Mixed Vegetables from Little Nyonya.
The food was not as fantastic as shown on TV but I am not convinced that I have tasted the best of nyonya dishes (It might be because I went quite late, when they are about to close). But anyway, I was asked to give me comments to Straits Times Sunday Life reporter and Ta Da! I had my brand (my own name) mention on papers.
The boss of True Blue, Mr Benjamin brought us around to explore the restaurant and talk to us more about peranakan culture.
Next, he brought us to a private dining room which True Blue reserves only for its important guest.
The Arch Restaurant
Next, I went to The Arch Restaurant with SHY, Tristan and Alwyn. The food was fantastic but not much of ambience. Just a common cafe setting. I love the dry laska, babi ponteh and sambal kankong….sorry lost the entire lot of the food photos….
Guan Hoe Soon
I fixed a dinner date at this restaurant. Strongly recommended by Bitchy. The food was very very very good!
Well, that’s the wrap on my nyonya cuisines experience.
