Nice yummy authentic Peranakan food. It’s of 2nd here and will visit again if we are around this area

Penang Rendang $22
This is the star dish for me! The shiitake mushroom cooked nicely and absorbs the sauce which just perfect! The rendang sauce is so savory and nice. Once I taste it I become addicted to it immediately. There's also a bit of spicy taste but not that strong. The rendang sauce really bring the Peranakan taste that for me not really easy to find in Singapore. You must try this when you visit this restaurant!

Wolfberry Soup $11/$18
This clear soup have a calm kind of taste so it doesn't taste heavy at all. All the veggies taste sweet and it further enhance by the wolfberry. It's not bad and quite decent, the aftertaste also nice. Go for it if you look for a soup that doesn't have a strong taste.

Lovely beef rendang.
Set lunch at $28
Love the dry laksa and chicken curry too.

Unlike what some of us may be familiar with, Blue Ginger’s otak otak does not have a chewy, bouncy texture but it is soft and disintegrates easily as you bite into it. To our pleasant surprise, the otak otak was very juicy and light.

The only thing we would hope for was for all the dishes to be served a little warmer as they were mostly served at room temperature.

Rating: 4.5/5 (wished it was more spicy but perhaps it was their intention keep the spice level low to cater to the majority)

Overall, Blue Ginger is a place that is suitable for families as the dishes are not too spicy and relatively well balanced in taste. They offer free flow of rice and achar too!

The grilled chicken thigh had a nice charred smokiness while still retaining its juiciness and tenderness. For someone who doesn’t like chicken skin, the chicken was grilled so perfectly that we ate the skin as well.

The sauce was made with coconut milk and a mix of spices which was really very lemak but fragrant. The ratio of coconut milk and spices was very well-balanced where one doesn’t empower another and does not cloy the palate.

The only thing we would hope for was for all the dishes to be served a little warmer as they were mostly served at room temperature.

Rating: 4.8/5 (our fav among everything we’ve ordered!)

Visited Candlenut for an authentic and exquisite peranakan dishes!!😋 Had some of the peranakan staples like the ngoh hiang, chap chye, chicken curry, babi buah keluak and bakwan kepiting soup. Lastly, rounded up with a kueh salat. Definitely wowed us with the strong flavours and how homely and comforting the food tasted🏠. A little pricey for sure, but the flavour of the dishes were super on point!! Definitely worthy of its title as the world's first michelin-starred peranakan restaurant.👍✨

Their latte was not too sweet but the pandan taste was abit too mild. Worth a try

First time trying buah keluak and it was great!!! Loce the fusion. Feel that the pasta went well with the meat and sauce. The sauce was rich and thick. The portion was huge and they were generous with the meat.

Their durian pancakes is a unique dish but the pancakes tasted ordinary. The durian mousse and ice cream was good. They gave a sufficient anount of durian as well. Great way to end off the meal!
