My typical experience with Peranakan fare usually consists of elaborate dishes - and we wondered why they didn’t have the usual crowd favourites like rendang, buah keluak, etc.

As we chatted with the owner about it, he revealed their goal of keeping prices affordable without scrimping on the quality. Simple, hearty, flavourful meals that you would expect to find for lunch at a Peranakan household perhaps?

What we ordered:
- Nasi Kunyit ($5.50)
- Dry Mee Siam ($4.50)
- Mee Rebus ($4.50)
- Fresh Calamansi Juice ($1.50)

We loved the fragrant coconut aroma from the curry in the Nasi Kunyit, the chicken soaked in this, and the soft tamarind-infused rice. The Dry Mee Siam noodles were a unlike what I’ve tried - it tasted like a mix of lemongrass and assam. The Mee Rebus has a different gravy from the typical Mee Rebus which I liked - it’s a bit more bitter and not as thick. But the part of all these dishes has to be the super-shiok chilli sauce...you can taste the sweetness of the dried shrimp in it :)

And do get the fresh calamansi juice - they freshly squeeze it, which is a rarity nowadays.

P.S. We were told that the place is usually very packed on weekends, where you might not get a table til 2pm. So try to go on weekdays when it’s pretty empty!
