PeraMakan Restaurant, Nonya/Peranakan – Singapore

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

Peramakan-restaurantimage credit: Peramakan

The legendary Nonya & Baba, located on River Valley Road, which used to be my favorite Peranakan restaurant in Singapore when I was living there is now sadly, gone.
They used to prepare signature dishes included Ayam Buah Keluak (which can take up to a week to prepare the nuts) and Itek Tim a soup with an interesting blend of duck and salted vegetables.
Now, I believe, PeraMakan is probably the best for this type of cooking in Singapore, although undoubtedly, their are many choices.

Punjab Grill by Jiggs Kalra – Singapore

Punjab Grill

This might be the best thing to happen to Indian cuisine since Manish Law of Rang Mahal and Milind Sovani at Song of India opened their fine dining Indian restaurants in Singapore.

The notable Jiggs Kalra, commonly referred to in India as the “Czar of Indian Cuisine” and the first Asian to be inducted into the International Gourmet Hall of Fame, is expecting this first venture in Singapore to be welcomed because Singapore is a gourmet city. “It’s got a very sophisticated clientele; it’s got very adventurous people with very adventurous palettes. So it makes sense for a gourmet Indian restaurant to open in a city which would truly appreciate it,” said Zorawar Kalra, CEO of Punjab Grill.

Les Bouchons meaning corks in French, and the singular bouchon can also refer to a type of small bistro in Lyon, although this tiny restaurant is not known for Lyonnaise cooking but for its famous ‘steak frites’ with a platter of various condiments alongside including two types of mustard, horseradish, and a jar of prepared Bearnaise sauce instead of a freshly made one. The owners also operate the restaurant Les Angelus and have recently opened a sibling to Les Bouchons called Les Bouchons Rive Gauche. The steak frites offer good value for money, and are accompanied by a basket of fresh bread and a salad with lettuce and tomatoes lightly splashed with a proper vinaigrette. They have a selection of French wines to accompany the dish.
