PeraMakan @ Keppel Club

On Monday, colleagues at work treated one colleague to a birthday lunch. It was already decided the week before that we will go to PeraMakan, since some people wanted to try the food at this place.

So what did we eat? Quite a lot actually! We had 6 of us and we these dishes.
The Beef Rendang. It was quite tender and flavourful.

The Ayam Buah Keluak. I think this is an acquired taste dish, either you like the taste of it or you totally hate it.

I will eat it, but I can't say I totally appreciate it. LOL

The Cincalok Egg. For cincalok fans. This time it is not so salty ;-)

The sambal kangkong. The usual favourite.

The otak otak. Lots of ingredients in it.

The BBQ sotong. I think I like this the best. Sotong's still so tender and the sauce is delicious.

The Babi Ponteh. We all like this dish too.

What's this? It's jantung pisang salad. Jantung Pisang is the banana flower. It had some prawn on top, and that's not cream. It's coconut milk. Something unique.

Level 3, Keppel Club
10 Bukit Chermin Road
Singapore 109918
Tel: 6377 2829

I always get this question: Do we need to be a club member to dine here? No, the restaurant is open to the public. :-)

whenever i go to Singapore I'll definitely go and eat Buah Keluak. I can't get them here in Kuching.
My grandma used to make very nice Pork Ribs Buah Keluak, she used to buy bags of buah keluak home from Spore and spent a week to clean them... a lot of work, but pity she has passed on..

What about the other 7/8? hehe..

1 week to clean them? OK, now I better appreciate the food I have!

Ooooo! Cinchalook eggs! Comfort food!

Yes, and we have replicated this a few times at home, ourselves without mum around. LOL

Dude, you're killing me here.

My mom made buah keluak with chicken or pork all the time when I was young. It was one of my favorite dishes.

The Ayam Buah Keluak there is AWESOME!! I'm no peranakan, but my gut feeling tells me that this is the closest there is to true Ayam Buah Keluak. Pwns all the Ayam Buah Keluaks I've had, Ivins included. And oh nooooo you didn't order the rendang. It's fantastic.

Oh what would I give to go back!

Unknown said...
