There are double desserts in the Tasting Menu. One‘s a Durian Chendol, which I am sure will please those who are fans of the “king of fruit”, while the other is warm, freshly made Apom which comes with two kinds of Pengat - a banana and a durian. Soft and cushiony, the butterfly pea flower-tinged Apom has a lovely tang from fermented rice flour. Oddly enough, I enjoyed it most with the durian pengat although I am not fond of durians per se.
Another thing about the Tasting Menu that I appreciate is its inclusion of tea or coffee. Who doesn’t like to end their meal with a cuppa, right? 😄

Intense and sweet from the rich stock made with pork and crustaceans, Indigo Blue Kitchen’s version of the soup here might be the best Bakwan Kepiting I have ever had outside of a home private kitchen. The meatball is excellent. Order the soup a la carte if you want to have more of it.

My absolute favourite dish from dinner at Indigo Blue Kitchen is the Nonya Popiah.
Soft yet resilient of skin, the huge bolster was stuffed with the most delicious braised filling of juicy turnip, bamboo shoot and prawns plus freshly picked mud crab meat, as well as the usual condiments. I was very pleased that they stayed true to the traditional Nonya style and left out the peanuts.
A must-try for sure!

The Prawns Chilli Garam is a dish I have not seen in many Peranakan restaurants or private kitchens. So I was wondering how Indigo Blue’s would taste. Wow - I fell hard for it in an instant. What had me besotted wasn’t the prawns although they were fresh and all, but the dryish mix of chilli, salt and shredded lime leaves they were flash-fried in. THAT was the kicker! I was spooning every bit of it to mix with my jasmine rice to enjoy. Shiok!

I loved the gravy in Indigo Blue Kitchen’s rendition of this Peranakan classic because it’s heavy on spices and assam, and thickened nicely with the black nut paste. My fellow diner Audrey found her piece of chicken a bit dry but mine was perfectly fine. The nuts were packed to the brim and we were given teaspoons to dig out every bit of the goodness.
If you enjoy buah keluak, this dish is a must-order.

Located in Shaw Centre, a couple of floors above Les Amis, is @indigobluekitchen, a modern looking space done up in cool, clean tones. The menu is respectably extensive but what’s interesting is they also offer a Tasting Menu ($88++ per pax) which Manager Andrew recommended us as it has many of the restaurant’s signatures. So we went for it.
I have to commend Andrew’s excellent service because once he knew we were also keen on the Nonya Popiah ($16++), he modified our order of 5 x Tasting Menus to 4 as he noted we were a group of five ladies. Furthermore, while the size of the communal-style dishes were apportioned for 4 (which was perfect for us), he had the initiative to keep the individual bites in the appetiser platter for 5.
Our meal kicked off with snacks of prawn and belinjo keropok followed by a large tray with D.I.Y. Kueh Pie Tee, Otah and Ngoh Hiang. They were all good but I thought the Otah stood out especially with its smoky, spice-rich aroma and drier finish. Quite unlike a lot of other spongey or fishcake textures you encounter elsewhere.
