What Makes Peranakan Food So Delightful
Peranakans Have Mixed Asian Origins
A mix of the Chinese and native Malay Cultures and their ingredients led to the development of Peranakan food. Contrary to popular misconception, not all Peranakans are Chinese; rather, the term refers to persons with mixed Malay, Indonesian, and Chinese heritage.
Bento Boxes with Halal-Certified Food
Only a few respectable caterers in Singapore offer halal-certified Peranakan meals to meet the needs of the city-predominately state’s Muslim populace. Customers are assured that they may enjoy distinctive delicacies on special occasions like Eid thanks to their Halal-Certification. Halal-certified food allows all Muslims to order well-known dishes and enjoy them as per the MUIS (Islamic Religious Council of Singapore) regulations.
Delicious cuisine is beautifully packed in Bento boxes and delivered anywhere in Singapore. All bento boxes are single-use and made to hold a variety of foods in a compact package.
Popular Peranakan Delicacies
- Ayam Buah Keluak – This traditional item is prepared with the seeds of the kepayang, a tall tree frequently found in the mangrove swamps of Malaysia and Indonesia. The seed is first fried before being buried in the ground, banana leaves, and ash for at least a month since eating it uncooked could be fatal due to its hydrogen cyanide content. The cyanide is eliminated during this period by fermentation. It is a spicy and acidic dish made with chicken and kepayang seeds (buah keluak) that have been cooked lovingly for hours in a tamarind and rempah combination.
- Nonya Chap Chye – The entire family enjoys this Peranakan vegetable stew before the Chinese Year. Beancurd skin gives a nice bite to this dish, bringing ingredients like glass noodles and crunchy black fungus together.
- Udang Masak Nenas – This dish brings prawns and pineapples together in an eclectic coconut milk curry.
