I am not usually a fan of “Kueh Salat” but this beauty has got to be the best I‘ve had.
The most striking thing about it is the kaya. Unlike the bright to deep green shade found in many others, this one by Executive Chef-owner Malcolm Lee of One MICHELIN Starred Candlenut Peranakan restaurant is a pale green, and is ultra silky soft and smooth. As mild as the kaya custard looks, it wields surprisingly enormous fragrance, richness and flavour as it’s made from freshly-squeezed coconut milk and pandan juice. Married perfectly with it is steamed “pulut” or glutinous rice that hits the right notes in ratio, moisture and texture. Together, they are formidable enough to have well-meaning diet plans and iron-clad resolutions melt away like butter on a hot pan. My mum will be the first to vouch for that 😂.

If you are keen to try this Kueh Salat (and I recommend you do), please visit Candlenut‘s website to place your order.


This is THE place. Remember to have their kueh salat. #tingzieeats #burpple

OHMY these were one of the BEST sotong I had in my life. They were ridiculously soft and fresh. I’ve never had sotongs this fresh!!!! And it was lathered with a generous amount of sambal which was super delicious and fragrant. It’s not overly salty or MSG-packed. Could really taste the effort into this handmade sambal paste. Lovely pairing with my 🍚!!

My visit at the one Michelin starred peranakan restaurant was pleasantly kickstarted by these fish crackers.

Crispy and tasty, yet not fishy or oily. Serves as a tasty snack with the sauce as well! Would totally buy a big pack of it as a daily snack hehe

Really enjoyed the food here although it was quite expensive for the portion. In my opinion it’s definitely worth to try it once as it’s one of the best peranakan food I’ve tasted. 6.0/10

Malcolm has come a long way way since Neil Road and it absolutely shows. We tried the Omakase menu and it was a joy. A little pricey, but worth every single penny. This Buah Keluak ice cream was as good as I ever remember it. Other notable mentions was the Assam Squid, Winged Bean Salad, Lamb Kebab and the Wagyu Rendang.

Good job Candlenut. Will definitely be back.
