The term ‘Peranakan’ is used to distinguish Chinese immigrants who settled down in Southeast Asia in the late nineteenth century. Males are referred to as Babas while females are called Nyonyas. Till today, the Peranakan culture is still very much alive as Singaporeans love the rich and distinctive flavours of Malay, Chinese and Indonesian cooking.
The traditional Peranakan cuisine is huge on spices, herbs and condiments so their dishes are naturally more full-flavoured and spicy as compared to the usual Chinese food. For a taste of authentic Peranakan food, you cannot go wrong at Spice Brasserie in PARKROYAL On Kitchener Road. You’d be happy to know that Executive Sous Chef Jimmy Bong is a true Baba with full Peranakan roots.
The all-new Baba and Nyonya Seafood Buffet spread will evoke nostalgia with exciting ‘live’ stations such as Cuba Lobster BBQ with Assam Manis, Crab Assam Pedas in Claypot, Chili Lime with Boiled Gong Gong and Cockle, as well as other crowd-pleasers including Salted Egg Crab and Wok-Fried Bee Hoon With Lala.
From 01 Mar to 31 May 2018, quote ‘Ladyironchef’ to enjoy Spice Brasserie’s Baba & Nyonya Seafood Dinner Buffet at S$99++ for 2 pax. This special offer is only applicable for dinner buffets on Thursdays to Sundays. READ ON
