Of the wetter variety, this was a damned fine rendition of Hokkien mee imbued with deep, umami flavour, lots of fluffy egg and bean sprouts. However, it doesn’t come with any chilli sauce or sambal at all, which is a slight travesty, and to be honest the rock lobster was unecessary.

The newest concept by Maison Ikkoku slings out Singapore Sling-inspired cocktails and upscale versions of Peranakan food, such as the Ikan Assam. While the grilled salmon was overcooked, it was fortunately redeemed by the spicy and tangy chickpea and sour assam sauce, which I could see being a dish on its own served with pita or rice.

Lunch buffet (S$36++ per pax)
.
Milo pudding topped with sesame seeds
.
The milo pudding have a nice QQ texture
.
However I couldn’t really taste the milo flavour from the milo pudding. It had a more chocolatey notes to it

Loving this flavourful Nyonya Assam Babi (tender pork braised in sour-ish tamarind gravy) set. With sides of yummy bakwan soup and crunchy chap chye.
(S$13.90+)

A Singapore Sling by way of an Old Fashioned, expect the spirit-forward potency of the latter, blended with the sweetness and medicinal undertones of the former. For lovers of strong and bitter aperitifs.

Feature my fav dish Nonya Noodles.
It’s not a normal Hokkien mee, it’s yellow noodle cooked in prawn-pork stock together with bean sprouts, Kangkong, and top with omelette and cucumber julienne.
It’s very flavoured , because cooked with fermented soy bean paste.

Beside this, I also enjoyed the beef rendang and sotong keluak. $15.

I couldn’t stop scooping more of this creamy, delicious chicken over my rice. Reminiscent of Ayam Masak Merah, the meat was succulent and awash in a sinfully rich sauce redolent with coconut, turmeric, ginger and lemongrass. I was absolutely stuffed later but it was worth it.

Giving the classic Singaporean Sling an innovative twist with five different profiles. For those who like a sweeter cocktails, go for the fruity Sling-a-pu-ra ($26) or sip on the refreshing Coco Sling ($28)

Feast on a mouth-watering array of Peranakan local cuisine like the Babi Hitam ($39), a caramelised slab of tender kurobuta pork or Ikan assam ($32), grilled salmon served on spiced chickpeas.

Friends who know me know how I like interviewing the waitressing staff before ordering .

If its the orh nee I want - better give it to me homemade - otherwise no deal 🙅‍♀️.

This homemade orh mee is 100 percent yam with no fillers . Not too sweet and a portion is good to share amongst 2 .

Creamy and decadent .

Will be back for more ...

Flavourful chap Chye with lots of chunky and thick cut high quality mushrooms which is a rare find these days - most places use the cheaper sort and cardboard paper thin mushrooms.

Vegetables were well stewed till soft and the fish was well seasoned without being too salty or greasy .

Very authentic .

This was faultless - you don’t need to get to a private dining kitchen to get private dining food standards.

Perfectly made ngo Hiang with lots of crisp water chestnuts , aromatics and well marinated meat.
This ngo Hiang was delightfully light and not greasy . Beautiful !

Comes with homemade sambal Belachan and sweet sauce and a small side of achar .

One of the best ngo Hiangs I have had .
