These are the sweet treats I imagine savouring if I had a Peranakan/Malay Grandmother :)

The kuehs were the highlight for me: Kueh Kosui (steamed tapioca flour cake with palm sugar) and Kueh Bingka (baked tapioca cake). I’d never tasted Kueh Kosui before this, and I consider myself a fan now. The crumbly shaved coconuts bits drenched in Gula Melaka give a sweet kick to the light, refreshing and soft kueh which is almost jelly-like.

The other two banana breads (original & chocolate) were decent, but not as moist or banana-y or cinnamon-y as I would like my banana breads.

Perfect for your lazy weekend dates where you want to retreat from civilisation and connect to a part of Singaporean kampung life that is sorely missing today.

The bistro sits on a wide plot of farm land where they grow most of their ingredients that you find on your dish. So for tree huggers like myself, you’d be pleased to know that your carbon footprint has been dramatically reduced for this meal :)

Our group of 4 ordered the Nasi Lemak Platter ($20 for serving size of 2) and the daily special Kampung Platter ($22 for serving size of 2) to share. The dishes had a taste of home - they taste like something your grandmother who has many years under her belt would whip up in her kitchen only a daily basis. Hence the flavours were not over powering, but quite mild and light on oil, well-suited for those who want a semblance of home-cooked meals.

What we loved in our platters:
- Moringa tempura
- Bolly wings (crispy, but not too oily)
- Barramundi fish fillet
- Kangkong

Overall, the whole experience felt like a sojourn back to home - friendly and attentive wait staff who serve you as if you were their own family, with humble home-cooked dishes.
