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

Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road wows us again in 2017 with their signature Ultimate Crab Feast. With an extensive spread of crab delights exquisitely curated by Executive Chef Ken Ang and his team, this year’s run sees new flavours (again) and will be bigger than before.
A total of seven different main crab dishes will be available in the buffet line-up. Chef Ken vows to ensure that every crab flavour that he puts on the table is of remarkable quality and stellar flavours that will please the crowd, so it is a game of quality over quantity.
Eating crabs a la carte is no fun. Limited by the portion before you, it is not unusual to find yourself wishing you had more to dig into. That’s why crab buffets are always an indulgence.
Make your way down to the Plaza Brasserie from 09 April 2017 until 28 June 2017 and feast on your favourite crabs at a reasonable price of S$68++ per adult and S$41++ per child, only available during dinner from Sundays to Wednesdays.
Trends come and go, our preferences in life change all the time, but for some unbeknownst reason, salted egg yolk-anything is always a favourite. We don’t know if it is solely a Singapore thing, but we are just so thankful to whoever decided to put the eggs through the brining process. Everything is better with salted egg yolk; that is just about right.
And we want to profess our love for salted egg yolk anything. Here, we have a list of Singapore’s Must-Try Salted Egg Yolk Dishes. Join us in this epicurean journey as we glorify the highly-coveted preserved egg and embrace all its goodness!
“Where can you find the cheapest crabs in Singapore?”
Irvin’s Seafood Cze Char at River Valley road is probably the place to go. Most of the crabs on the menu – like black pepper crab, chilli crab, butter crab – are available for just $19.9. There’s a catch of course. The crabs are much smaller, around 500g each.
Personally, I thought that it was a good tactic to attract customers. But taste-wise, the crabs that we had were nothing special. Irvin’s Seafood is only worth a try if you a) are on a budget b) want to try a variety of crabs.
A few weeks ago, I received an email from a reader, telling me about Master Crab Seafood Restaurant, a cze char place in Ghim Moh near De Burg burgers. The title of her email was: “best crabs in Singapore“. I think that pretty much sums it up.
Keng Eng Kee Seafood restaurant at Alexandra Village used to be my family’s favourite Cze Char place. It has been a while since our last visit here so we decided to drop by for dinner last week.
Reading Food Blogs and watching food shows are among my favorite pastimes. Food blogs with delicious photos and intriguing words have the ability to suck me in for hours, while food shows are somewhat more direct – they make me hungry instantly. I’m sure many of you are currently hooked to Sizzling Woks, the popular food show on the best zhi char eating places in Singapore.
I’m not surprised because I get many requests to blog more about cheap and good Zhi Char in Singapore all the time. Today, I will like to share about one of the Zhi Char restaurants in Singapore that my family always go to: B.K Fortune Seafood Steamboat restaurant. They are located just a few steps away from Bar Bar Black Sheep along Bukit Timah road (towards King Albert Park direction after Sixth Avenue).
