Noodles were very lightly flavoured while the greens were slightly undercooked

Rather sweet curry which went well with the tender chicken thigh. Not sure if you always get this cut though

Comes with either rice or noodles(they ran out of bread)

Superb sauce that was tangy but unfortunately the beef didn't hold up. Dry and tough, it was really a pity

U get to choose between rice and noodles but the curry veggies and achar really came as a surprise since it wasn't shown in the picture. Solid achar but the curry vegetables were really good as they added small dried prawns for umami

This is possibly my favourite rendition of pulot hitam to date with its perfect balance of sweetness and savouriness, as well as richness from the coconut milk/cream. Spot on texture of the black glutinous rice too!

We tried a few savoury dishes here from the set lunch options but only this stood out. It's exactly how you would imagine it to be: an intense gravy jam-packed with flavours from the rempah. Very shiok!

Each morsel was beautifully fried. I particularly loved the ends cos the fried bean curd skin was amazing. Each pc was stuffed full of minced prawn n minced meat. Thou the inside was a little on the dry side, drenching it in the lovely sweet sauce solved the issue.

This was good with rice but more gravy would have been better. Beef wasn’t as tender as I would have liked. A little on the sweet side.

Rather than a stir-fry, this laksa just had its gravy concentrated to a thick sauce. That just meant more intense flavors, which I totally loved. I also liked the addition of a lime to stimulate my appetite. Lots of liao inside, and I counted 4 fresh prawns. I almost licked the bowl.

House Special Laksa Goreng - The rice vermicelli was stir fried with thick and rich laksa gravy, and served with prawns, tau pok and egg. The laksa is flavoured with coconut milk, dried shrimps and peanuts, similar to satay bee hoon sauce.

For such high expectations, I wasn't that impressed with the texture of the meatball but it was firm. I wished that it was more tender but maybe this is authentic? The soup though, aromatic and rather light, makes it easy to finish

They ain't playing with this dish. I tried to find some flaw but the only one I could think of was that I would prefer meatier white flesh prawns that soak up the sauce better compared to the crunchy ones here. The sauce was perfect in every sense of the word, lemakness, spice, even consistency because its thin enough you won't forget you're having laksa(unlike a dry coating), but it's thick enough to cling onto the noodles well. Well spiciness is up to the individuals preference, but there's a noticeable heat without overpowering the flavour of the dish, so I'm content with that. Safe to say I licked up every last drop :D

Cozy Sunday dinner @ Peranakan Flavours. Nice and quiet place. Food was good.. price is on the high side. Had belimbing pork ($15) ,bakwan kepiting ($10). & ikan sumbat. The ikan sumbat was excellent. The snapper tasted fresh, easily the best dish I had this weekend. So tempted to order another plate. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŸ

Previously housed in The Ardennes Hotel, this Peranakan restaurant has found a new home along Tan Quee Lan Street. The walls are covered with newspaper clippings of Peranakan Flavours's famed dish β€” Bakwan Kepiting ($10), a minced meatball and crabmeat soup, and the space is big enough to accommodate large groups, making this place ideal for company lunches or family dinners. Swing by with your colleagues during lunch for their value-for-money sets. Prices start from $8.80 for Nonya Curry Chicken and Babi Pongtey (stewed pork with fermented soy bean), and $10.80 for dishes like Chicken Buah Keluak and Assam Pedas Fish. Each set meal comes with a choice of rice (with pickles and curry vegetables on the side), noodles or bread. The Burpple community loves the House Special Laksa Goreng ($15) β€” a dry version of the iconic dish that features "noodles that are coated with thick rempah that packs a spicy umami punch", according to Burppler Weekendeatwhat. Don't leave without sharing a bowl of their house made Pulot Hitam ($5); it's thick, not overly sweet and just the way we like it.
Avg Price: $15 per person

My favourite out of all the lunch sets we tried. No watery curry here, just creamy goodness, with a perfect hint of coconut flavour that gives it a distinctive character and addictiveness. I finished ALL the sauce :)

Aside from their affordable lunch sets, you can get this a la carte. This is goooooood super lemak and creamy, no laksa soupiness here. $15 is expensive but they make up for it with the ingredients and great flavour

The dish that drew me to Peranakan Flavours, a layer of otah over snapper fillet, wrapped in fish skin & fried. So good, & the top dish for me today. Although, to be fair, with my hard to please family when it comes to Peranakan food, the food today certainly rank tops in Singapore thus far & we'll be back with the wider family. πŸ‘ and wholeheartedly recommended for authentic Peranakan cuisine. Prices are not exactly low, but knowing the amount of effort that goes into most of the dishes, well worth it!

One dish I'm extremely picky on as grandma does a really mean version! This is probably the best one I've had at a restaurant, though no where near the richness of grandma's. Tad different with all the buah keluak mixed into the sauce rather than served in the nuts, but nonetheless aromatic & hearty! And had a good balance of tangy and savoury.

My favourite of all peranakan soups! First order when I read that Peranakan Flavours does a good one! ❀ the meatball made from minced meat, crabmeat & bamboo shoots + super flavourful broth!

Fresh prawns, generous slices of pineapples, ladies fingers, eggplant & tomatoes - only downside of this dish for us was that it's too milky, being used to grandma's cooking that omits the use of coconut milk, so her sauce is tangy, light & you can taste the clear flavours of briny prawn & sweetness of pineapple.
