It’s fusion Peranakan food is ok...... very nice atmosphere for wine chilling though

Burnt Cheesecake with an Asian Twist
Made with fragrant Mao Shan Wang durian puree and cream cheese
The durian burnt cheesecake is really thick and creamy
I could taste strong MSW durian flavour and the creaminess from the cream cheese
And the addition of strawberries managed to tone down the rich creaminess from the durian burnt cheesecake

This is a Must Try dish as the spiciness of this dish is not overpowering and you could taste the spice of the curry. The curry consistency is good as is not too watery or too thick. I personally love the cook of this dish very much.

Beef short ribs was good, very tender and lots of flavour, though on the salty side.

The char siew rice bowl was abit tough and dry despite the positive reviews on it here.

The youtiao was crisp and not oily, and stuffed with otah that was bouncy and tasty. I liked this a lot! The contrasting textures and good balance of flavours were great :)

The chap chye was highly favoured by my boyfriend, as the ingredients had absorbed all the flavour. I enjoyed it too, but I would have preferred if they gave some gravy or ‘zhup’. Still a good dish tho!

The Ayam buah keluak was decent, as the chicken was tender. However, we found it a little salty, and would have liked for more pronounced buah keluak flavour. Also, the achar served with the rice was really nice!

Baba Chews rendition of Itek Tim has its duck broth with salted mustard vegetables, seasoned with spices, green chilli and tamarind. Unfortunately felt that the broth was predominantly flavoured by the salted mustard vegetables, while the other ingredients weren’t that distinct. Portion was quite small for the price tag, and our bowl was served lukewarm. 😔
