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.

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.
