PeraMakan @ Keppel Club

We were suppose to go to a restaurant in VivoCity for dinner last Saturday evening. We placed a booking just in case the restaurant was packed. When we were on our way there, we noticed that there is a huge jam at VivoCity. Chugging slowly along Telok Belangah Road, we noticed on the parking lots availability sign that carpark spaces in both VivoCity and Harbourfront were full. Hmm what's happening. We thought we will try to look for a lot there anyway. We realised it was a bad idea after like 15 minutes. We barely moved.

So we changed plans and called up PeraMakan to book seats instead. We told them we will be there in 15 minutes. Glad we changed our plans. We got to eat delicious peranakan food instead!


We noticed on the menu they have the usual Babi Ponteh - Pork Rib at $14. Then we noticed on the specials menu, they have a Nyonya Pork Rib Stew at $16. Out of curiosity, we asked the server. He said it's stew lah meaning more gravy! You get bigger pieces of meat too. Ah... sounds good, so we ordered it.

It was not bad. The gravy was excellent on the rice too. You can wallop plates of rice just by pouring gravy over it! :-)

The people dining with us were not so 'adventurous'. We were planning to try the Sayur Nangka Masak Lemak. In the end, we got the more familiar Nyonya Chap Chye ($10) instead. ;-)

A familiar but very much loved dish amongst all of us, the Cincalok Omelette ($10).

This was on the specials too. The Ikan Sumbat ($16).
Mackerel stuffed with fragrant spices that was grilled. The inside of the fish was moist and really the spices made it really fragrant. I have not eaten ikan sumbat for the longest time!

One thing about peranakan food servings is that it is usually smaller. But if you look at it from a positive way, it means you get to order more desserts! Here are the desserts that we shared:

The icy cold chendol.



The warm bubur cha cha.
(It's very very sweet by the way, but it's nice.)

The warm bubur terigu. For those who loves wheat.

And lastly, for those who love durian, the durian puffs!
