    Description
    Indocafe's grand black-and-white compound is a historic remnant of Singapore's past, so it's only fitting the cuisine boasts equal cultural significance. In an interior done up to look like a warm dining room - parquet floors, Peranakan antiques, and cosy lighting - orders are brought to your table with little fanfare, confident in their authentic flavours and contemporary touches.

    Fundamental Nyonya techniques, classic recipes, and fresh spices, pounded together using the tried-and-true pestle and mortar method, result in fragrant traditional offerings like Kueh Pie Tee (crisp pastry cups filled with shredded turnip, served with prawns, crabmeat, and homemade chili dip), Ngoh Hiang (homemade five-spiced pork meat roll wrapped in soy bean curd skin and deep fried), and Organic Ayam Buah Keluak (braised organic chicken with black nut and exotic spices).

    That's not to say that Indocafe is stuck in the past though; little tweaks to suit modern tastes are a constant feature in their menu. Feast on dishes such as the Otah Klasik (steamed 'Chawanmushi' egg custard with fish fillet, seasoned with coconut milk, and a special blend of herb and spices) and Chendol Panna Cotta, both great examples of when past and present collide.

    Once you're done tasting a slice of Singapore's heritage, don’t forget to trot over to their Arts & Cultural Central where a little coffee appreciation and afternoon performance might go a long way! (Apr 2016)

    The Buzz
    "For an introduction to Peranakan cuisine, the stately 68-seater restaurant does the classics well, albeit with a modern twist." -Time Out Singapore

    "Once you're finished with savouring the culinary delights of Peranakan cuisine, it's time to sample some of the cultural kind as you can also pop across to the Arts & Cultural Centre for perhaps a spot of coffee appreciation, live performance or dance appreciation." -City Nomads
