Nyonya Chicken Rendang Recipe

Just when I thought I had finished reviewing the Heng’s range of spices and pastes that I had bought off Qoo10, I realised I still had this Nyonya Chicken Rendang Recipe and another Stewed Pork Belly Recipe sitting in my backlog and waiting to be shared, lol. Ok I’m sure these are the last two. […]

Ayam Pongteh Recipe using Heng’s Pongteh Sauce

Ayam pongteh is a Nyonya-style chicken and potato stew which I really love as my Gran used to cook it often when I was little. The tau cheo (fermented soy beans) in the sauce is the most important ingredient. It really gives a beautifully deep and rich umami flavour to the dish. If you’re interested […]

Quick and Easy Spicy Fish Floss Pasta Recipe

I shared my Spicy Fish Floss Recipe last week which was inspired by my Granny’s Nyonya-style fish floss. It’s a very versatile side dish that you can make in bulk in advance and then store the rest in containers (chilled) for later use. Try adding them to fried rice, noodles and sandwiches or even whip […]

Nyonya Style Fried Assam Prawn Recipe

I haven’t had a good Fried Assam Prawn dish for a long time until when I visited Makko Teck Neo at Telok Blangah Rise which served up homey Peranakan fare. Really reminded me of Granny’s cooking as she used to make similar assam (a.k.a. tamarind) prawns when I was little so I decided to recreate […]

Spicy Fish Floss Recipe (using Shovelnose Ray)

My late granny used to make fish floss (she called it ‘her hu’ in Teochew) a lot when I was little because my father loved fishing then and every weekend he would come home with a huge catch of fish like sea bass and snapper. I really missed those moments when the kitchen would be […]

Ayam Pongteh Recipe (Nonya Style Chicken and Potato Stew)

While my Gran was a Teochew, she also had Peranakan roots as her mother was a pure Nonya. I guess it was because of that, hence Gran had inherited incredible family recipes that I used to enjoy so much when I was little. Dishes with tau cheo (fermented soya beans) were clearly her forte and […]

Nonya Curry Mixed Veg Rice @ Blk 628 Ang Mo Kio Ave 4

This mixed rice stall has been in our neighbourhood food centre for a number of years now. Every time I’m there, I always see a queue, rain or shine especially in the early morning where everyone is getting their breakfast from here. This may look like any ordinary mixed veg rice stall with various dishes to […]

Nonya-Style Steamed Grouper Recipe

Fresh cod fish has always been our favourite choice of fish but it’s just getting too expensive these days as price has gone up to almost $60 per kg at NTUC Fairprice. This time round, I decided to go for grouper fillets (fresh ones, I’m never a big fan of those pre-packed frozen types) instead as […]

2004 Novena Peranakan Cuisine

Our favourite haunt for lunch. We must be here at least once a week. The name 2004 Novena Peranakan Cuisine probably means the eatery has been opened since 2004 and of course located at Novena. Nothing fanciful in the interior but the casual environment makes it feel like we are eating at home. Being one […]
