Finally tried out Violet Oon's at @Ion_Orchard! The menu features a good variety of signature Peranakan dishes, such as Sayur Lodeh (S$13++), Babi Pong Tay ($18++), Ayam Buah Keluak (S$23++), Beef Rendang (S$23++) and Udang Goreng Chilli (S$32++). Amongst the various dishes we tried, this laksa was my favourite. It was not too spicy, yet flavourful enough. The dried version meant that it was definitely less messy and perfect for sharing!
.
While the price is a little on the high side, I would say that it is still a good place to bring tourist friends to, with its variety of local dishes, (toned down) level of spiciness suitable for the foreign palate and convenient location.

Have you dined at this restaurant before? Let me know your comments if you've been there too! 😉

Had lots of work to catch up on this weekend, so we decided not to cook. Now, look at all these food we eventually ordered for 2 of us! Felt good enjoying a feast of hawker favourites - without stepping out of our home (and into the heat 😅).
.
My favourites were:
🔸Fried Carrot Cake (S$3, from Blk 85 Fried Oyster Kovan Stall) and
🔸Lala Sliced Fish Beehoon ($6.20, from Happiness Seafood White Beehoon Stall).
.
Just top up S$1.50 per dish for delivery. No minimum order!
.

@WhyQsg is Singapore's largest hawker food delivery, partnering various stalls island-wide including the famous Michelin-rated @LiaoFanHawkerChan.
.
Quote <<3F2189>> for S$3 off, you will get it after completing your first order! #dontsaybojio. So what is your favourite local hawker dish? 😉

Frothy teh tarik! Just needed some caffeine boost and something Instagrammable to perk me up.
.
The froth is created from air bubbles made when the tea is pulled numerous times during preparation.
.
Local tea over bubble tea for me. What about you? 😉

Had one of the most fruitful days in the longest time. Enjoyed a relaxing buffet at The Line and also clocked more than 20,000 steps from this morning and evening's exercise!
.
The pandan chiffon cake from The Line was really fluffy with the right amount of pandan flavour and not overly sweet. Nice! Was tempted to buy one back from the Shophouse Bakery on our way home.
.
@NigellaLawson once said that pandan would be the next big food craze, but I'm sure we Southeast Asians are just too familiar with this ubiquitous ingredient in our parents' kitchens. What type of pandan-based food do you like? 🌿

Putu Piring || @HaigRoadPutuPiring
.
Does anyone recognise these moulds? Yes, they are used to make traditional Putu Piring!
.
I have to admit that both Putu Piring and Tutu Kueh look similar with their snowy white exterior.
.
The key difference is that Putu Piring, a Malay dessert, is usually filled with gula melaka and topped with grated coconut, while Tutu Kueh, with its Chinese origin, is usually filled with peanut or coconut. Well but either way, they are both bite-sized desserts oozing with much handmade goodness.
.
And bet you didn't know that this stall, Haig Road Putu Piring, is featured in the @MichelinGuide! Swipe ⬅️ for more pics and view the gula melaka within these mini cakes. 🤗

Another local dessert. Would you eat this by layer or take a whole bite to enjoy both the pandan topping with the sweetened glutinous rice together? 😉
.
Available at The Lobby Lounge as part of the Weekend Local Buffet Lunch (S$38++) offering various traditional Peranakan dishes and hawker delights.

A strong waft of coconut filled the air once I opened this tin of Kueh Bangkit!
.
No one does these traditional Nyonya cookies better than this restaurant that specialises in Peranakan cuisine. I heard that they use real coconut (from scratch) to make these. No wonder they are so fragrant and airy. You have to try it yourself to believe me. 😉
.
.
.
PS: 20% of all cookie sales proceeds go towards The Assisi Hospice. Let's do good together this new year! 💪 SWIPE ⬅️ for the list of CNY goodies available (with their prices).

Spice up your Christmas 🎄 with this Peranakan-style Christmas Set (S$68++). Forget the traditional roast turkey with cranberry sauce, but try one with buah keluak. Or how about the pork belly with local spices?
.
He loved these pan-seared prawns cooked 3 ways (with assam, lemak and sambal respectively), while my favourite was the super succulent Roasted Turkey Breast with Buah Keluak Minced Pork Gravy (photo 3). Can't go wrong when you know that this Peranakan restaurant does their signature Ayam (Chicken) Buah Keluak so well. 😊
