Brainchild of Chef Damian D’Silva, the menu constitutes a nostalgic homage to the food he grew up with as a child of Eurasian-Peranakan parentage.

Sambal Buah Keluak Fried Rice ($22) was simply amazingly tasty & I love the texture of rice! 🍚
.
Babi Assam ($22) was another mouth watering dish & wowed me with its super smooth soft yet not oily finish 🥓
.
Beef Cheek Rendang ($32) was braised so perfectly well in great richness & enticed me with its slipped-off-the-bone feel 🥩
.
Chilled Tofu with Pidan ($12) tenderlized my tastebuds & whet my appetite further 🥚
.
Peranakan Chap Chye ($16) was the weakest link in this meal as it was overly strong in flavor & slightly salty 🥕
.
Kueh Kosui ($6) was my favorite dessert as it was extremely soft, moist & not too sweet 🍮
.
Sago Gula Melaka ($8) was not chilled enough & slightly too sweet for me 🍨

(Clockwise from top left) Ayam lemak chilli padi, sambal buah keluak fried rice, babi assam. The latter two were outstanding. Like much of Peranakan cuisine, it's an explosion of flavours. But you can tell the chef is more refined.

We couldn't finish this lol. 3 guys who asked for half the rice and yet we still couldn't finish the dessert. Their generous serving is something to behold and particularly since it's actually value for money for a seemingly atas place.

Again it's stewed to nothingness lol the chicken just breaks apart once u touch it and soon u can't differentiate between chicken drenched in gravy or blobs of thick gravy. Moreish nonetheless and quite mild

Stewed to a glorious mess such that the ingredients seems to have melded with one another. My friend couldn't differentiate between the bamboo shoots and the meat lol. Really good stew that goes well with rice

Take note this is a portion for 2. Everything is meant to be shared lol it's a very homely feeling.

Contains prawns and pork and loads of mushrooms so it's pretty damn worth it. My favourite is the black fungus. Let's just say that unlike other places, theres actually more of everything else than cabbage lol

Spicy as h*ll. Probably has the chili served with ngoh hiang mixed inside, so there's a lingering bitter kind of spicy. Ask for less chili or sth lol even with the fruitiness from the pineapples the pain lingers and really affects the meal. I finished less than half of it before giving up

Fish was ok but the sauce is rather sour and thick so it takes some getting used to. I was okay with it but I don't think everyone will enjoy it. It's not extremely strong just slightly unusual

Variety of textures lol and it's rather mild so it's more like a meaty main that you can keep going back for rather than a dish that needs to be taken with rice.

Set lunch u get a soup, a choice of meat, a choice of seafood, and a choice of veg served with rice(theres daily dessert as well)

The chili sauce is pretty potent so proceed with caution

During cny they only have this cny set lunch(at least for lunch I guess)

Very rich soup with some pork innards and other stuff. Not any worse than Ah Er's version lol (Y)

The lavish ‘Tok Panjang’ spread by Chef Damian D’Silva at #FolkloreSG is high on my list - look forward to classics such as Babi Ponteh, Bakwan Kepiting, Ayam Buah Keluak, and even the piquant #Peranakan festive must-have, Prawn Salad.

Folklore's Chinese New Year Tok Panjang is available for dinner from 15 Feb to 2 Mar 2018, 6.00pm to 9.30pm daily, at $68 per adult and $28 per child (12 years old and below). A la carte menu will not be available during this promotional period. #FindNewFood #MediaTasting #JazpsterCNY

If you love Peranakan food and large portions, look no further.

Tucked inside the Destination Hotel on Beach Road, Folklore serves an array of tasty dishes that will leave you wanting more.

The winning dish of the meal was the Sambal Buah Keluak Fried Rice ($22) which was super fragrant with the rich taste of buah keluak. Pictured next to it is the Sambal Kapitan ($26), which is an extremely spicy chicken dish on the Christmas menu.

Definitely one of my favourite Peranakan restaurants in Singapore and seriously, you won’t believe how big the portions are!

Hands down the best tapioca cake I’ve had. On its own, each coconut-scented slice is smooth, soft and wobbly, with a hint of salt that really accentuates the flavours. The pleasure is doubly heightened when it is eaten together with the coconut ice cream and a drizzle of that intense, syrupy gula melaka.

Taste: 4/5

A nice and simple dessert to end the meal. There’s nothing here to criticize at all, but if I was being pedantic my preference would be for the sago to have been slightly chewier.

Taste: 3.5/5
