We celebrated a friend's birthday at Peramakan @ Keppel Club. We ordered the set menu for 8 and found that the portions were really generous. In fact, we had to pack some of the food to take home. We loved the beef rendang, braised pork ribs and otak otak. However, we do have one suggestion for the set menu. Except... More

You don't have to be a member of Keppel Club to dine at PeraMakan. The food is good,but it is not the most delicious or refined nonya restaurant in town - more like honest home cooking. The decor is dated - 70's style. Service is attentive. Compared to more upmarket Peranakan restaurants, it's good value, although the very steep parking... More

REVIEW ON TINGKAT PERAMAKAN, OWEN RD. Date of visit: 26 Feb 2017 My family of 6 visited the latest addition to the Peramakan chain at Owen Rd for dinner. Before we visited the restaurant, my wife recce-ed the place, and looked up the prices. Seems fair - averaging around $8-10 per item. It was my first experience with Peramakan, and... More

Dear Scott, Thank you for taking time to write to Tripadvisor. First, I want to humbly apologise for the bad experience with the portioning of our food. Tingkat PeraMakan was meant to bring our food closer to customers hence the informal dining and cheaper prices. The prices and the portions are meant for one to two persons dining together. Unlike...

My husband and myself were interested to try out Peranakan food and were glad we did. We tried the Ikan Garam Assam, Sambal Kangkong, Otak Otak Makanan Laut, Sago Gula Melaka & Durian Pengat. No regrets with any of the choices. Otah was full of flavor with handful of prawn n fish chunks. Not forgetting the desserts, simply yummy.

The portion for each dish is too small for 4 pax. They should have pre-alert us to order double. Also I don't think the food are fantastic. Not worth a try.

Description
We are a heritage restaurant with a cuisine that dates back four centuries. Our food is a marriage of two cultures, of well-to-do Chinese traders or merchants who settled around the coastal regions of Penang, Malacca and Singapore, and who were married to the local women. Their descendants, known as the Peranakans meaning "local born" were brought up to appreciate the fine things in life. The males were inducted into the family business and the females were taught homecrafts especially in cooking. Food has always played an important role in the households of rich the Peranakan families. The patriarch would entertain his business associates lavishly. In those days, it was common to bring honoured guests home and be pampered with good food cooked by the ladies of house, presided by the matriarch, often an awesome woman of many talents. At PeraMakan, we relive the bygone days through our food, cooked with love and passion. We cook for you as if we cook for the family and our food does not contain MSG or preservatives. What you get is clean, healthy, wholesome food cooked the way, a Peranakan matriarch would cook for her loved ones. Visit PeraMakan and enjoy Peranakan hospitality and warmth.
