It's such a pity that the cake was a tad dry. I'm not a big fan of old-school buttercream either, especially in this case where it was rather grainy on some parts (either because of dessicated coconut or sugar— I'm not sure). The gula melaka was fragrant as expected, but the dish is nothing mindblowing as a whole. Perhaps it's tailored more towards the our parents' tastebuds as the theme suggests.

A dish that clearly showed the skills and creativity of the restaurant. Elemen's nasi lemak came with fragrant coconut rice, infused with the beautiful indigo hue from butterfly pea flower. I had expected a somewhat doughy texture from the "rendang" but I was pleasantly surprised to find how tender and smooth it was. They also didn't downplay the use of spices and chilli as I found both the rendang sauce and sambal flavourful with kicks. The tofu otah underneath the rice was another lovely touch to the dish. I almost forgot that this whole dish was entirely vegetarian because of how good it was!

A refreshing palate cleanser that needs no more introduction. A deceptive item because it made me feel less full and less guilty even after having 4 courses.

Giving a unique twist to the famous Peranakan dish kueh pie tee, they created a mini bowl from deep crispy, fried popiah skin. The filling was also slightly different from the traditional kueh pie tee. It came with cubes of turnip, carrot, and shiitake mushroom having been stir-fried with soya sauce and garlic. It kinda missed the savoury shrimp taste, but still tasty nonetheless.

I love the balance combination of salty, bitter and sour. Although there was no meat in the soup, it also had a tinge of sweetness from the tomato. The addition of mushroom provided a little earthy note to the soup as duck was missing from the dish.

Unlike the usual Peranakan-style sambal sauce wing beans, the one here came cold in the form of salad. The addition of fried enoki mushroom, fried shallot and fried garlic in the salad offered a lovely contrast in texture and flavour although it remained simple with little seasoning. I could easily finish the whole bowl by myself.

Spicy pickle was yummy and refreshing, offering sweet and sour notes for the tastebuds. Youtiao was coated in tangy rojak sauce with interesting fermented note despite not using fermented shrimp paste here. The youtiao itself managed to remain crunchy while waiting for me to finish taking photos. Tofu and century egg with tahini was awesome. I'm not too sure how this fits into the Peranakan theme, but I love the combination of creamy texture and umami flavour.

Very strong truffle aroma and flavour, but something that I unusually like. The whole dish is packed with earthy notes, so mushroom lovers will most likely enjoy this. The porcini was cut into chunks and cooked until tender. It was such an appetising and addictive dish.

The soup is loaded with various ingredients netted fungus, shitake mushroom, red dates and another ingredient which I'm not too sure about. Broth tasted clean, light, and sweet. Le bf doesn't like the "too-healthy" taste, but it's definitely my kind of comfort food.
