This humble stall in the basement of Golden Mile Food Centre dishes out authentic Peranakan food at very affordable prices. Chef-owner Charlie is no stranger to the food scene, having set up his previous restaurant along East Coast Road eight years ago. For maximum satisfaction, bring a small group of friends so you can try more dishes. We especially love the Ayam Buah Keluak ($7) — Charlie's rendition sees a generous amount of buah keluak flesh scraped out from its nut, mixed with minced pork before being stuffed back into the shell. It's also used in the gravy, which helps to make it thicker and richer. Share the tender Beef Rendang ($7), Chap Chye ($2) and the Lok Kai Yik ($20), a Cantonese dish of stewed chicken wings, pork innards and taupok that we hardly see on menus nowadays. Its distinct pink yummy broth comes from long hours of stewing the dish with fermented red yam. So comforting!
