This place serves excellent food with nice and simple atmosphere. All their dishes are authentic and plentiful. Loved their ayam bua keyluk. Prices are reasonable. Best for meals with family, or casual meeting with friends
Crave for peranakan food? This is YOUR Nyonya's family place! The mix of new and old era makes the place alot more exciting for your taste buds!
very nice environment and a lot of nice malay food.
traditional & contemporary Peranakan, average price per head ranges from $22 to $28!
After eating the delicious nyonya food, remember to enjoy their famous dessert - chendol !
they do catering for events as well, quite special peranakan taste to the food
Their ayam buah keluak is a must try dish!thumbs up!
Coming from a rich Peranakan heritage, my larger-than-life family of nearly 50 of us visited Peramakan at Keppel Club for a family gathering with relatives from all over the world.
We ordered 5 servings of several dishes, which included the following:
- Bakwan Kepiting (Pork ball soup)
- Babi Pongteh (Pork belly braised with bamboo shoots and Chinese mushroom in a taucheo gravy)
- Otak Otak Makanan Laut (Mackeral, shrimp and squid mixed with otak paste and grilled on kunyit leaf)
- Ikan Garam Assam (Red snapper fillet cooked in a spicy garam assam gravy, served with eggplant and ladyfingers)
- Beef Rendang (Beef braised in rich, spicy coconut gravy)
- Ayam Buah Keluak (Must-try! Chicken braised with Buah Keluak)
- Nyonya Chap Chye (Cabbage stewed in taucheo gravy with sweet beancake, taukee, dry lilybuds, black fungus and tanghoon)
- Durian Chendol (Homemade chendol with kidney beans, gula melaka, coconut milk and rich durian paste)
If you ask me, I would recommend everything. But then again, I believe it\'s subjective to our different tastes and preferences. Some of the food may be too spicy. I thought everything was just right, but the younger ones in the family had trouble with taking many dishes such as the been rendang, Ikan Garam Assam and Otak Otak.
We\'re a family of 4 generations of bibiks and babas, and we all really enjoyed the food. So i guess that pretty much says alot in terms of the taste and authenticity of the food.
Service wasn\'t up to standard though. The food arrived relatively slow, but it could be due to the fact that the restaurant was busy at that time.
Each person paid about $35 for the dinner.
Finally got our act together to check out this makan place. I have been told by 3 unrelated people that the food there is good but expensive.
So the 5 lovely ladies feasted on:
1) Sambal Kangkong - this was actually a very very good dish. So many Zichar stalls sell this but here, they use a lot of shrimp blend and the the result is very flavorful Sambal that beautifully accompanies the Kangkong.
2) Assam Fish Fillets - the fish fillets were fresh and meaty. The Assam sauce also packed enough punch in terms of sourness but not too much. Very good dish, wished they served with more gravy.
3) Ayam Bua Keluek - I am not a fan of this dish but those who love it said its good. I\'ll take their word for it.
4) Lamb Rendang - this dish is a winner! One leg of lamb that they cooked in Rendang style. No sauce but it\'s not dry. Best dish of the meal.
5) Chicalok Omelete - this is ok nice.
6) Otah - I love how they do their Otah. One shallow plate of it with fish chunks. Very homemade feel to it. Nice!
7) Bo Bo Cha Cha - super creamy coconut soup and loads of tapioca and yam bits. Very sinfully nice.
8) Chendol - Ok nice only.
9) Durian Pengat - I hate durian but my friends who love it agreed that this is the best dessert of the meal! I\'ll take their word for it.
Service was excellent and attentive. They dish out belachan Chilli whenever they see that our supply is low. Very nice staff who makes our meal experience so much more special! Will definitely come back again with family.
Spending: Approximately SGD 28(Lunch)
The meat balls with crab meat& bamboo shoot soup– It was good but the stock wasn’t quite as full-bodied as I’d have liked &the meat balls were slightly overworked & hence a bit dry.
coconut chicken curry-it was good,but I would have preferred it a little spicier
Dessert bo bo cha cha was good but a bit too sweet
Overall i rate 7/10
Nice Peramakan food!
Saw their restauant appear on sunday times, was mention as one of the authetic perankan cuisine in sg.. Cool. Ned to try it soon...
E best Peranakan food in town! :) must try!
My colleague treated us for Christmas lunch at PeraMakan which is inside the Keppel Club. It\'s not quite accessible unless you are driving. Reservations have to be made in advance cause it gets crowded even during lunch time.
Indulged in their mouth watering Nyonya Curry Fish Head, Tofu, Babi Hong and a cup of durian chendol which taste heavenly with the thich coconut and durian taste.. One plate of rice is not enough. Sinful but super worth it.
I\'m not sure of the price as it\'s a treat for us but I will definitely go there again next time if I have cravings for Peranakan food.
Highly recommended !!
