Most visitors to Singapore will be wondering what a Peranakan meal is.

Well, it’s a cuisine born of the thousand-year-old melding of Chinese-Malay-Indian cultures here in SE Asia. It combines many spices and ingredients to create unusually flavoured, but not too spicy-hot, dishes.

We hope you’ll join us for this dinner before heading to the first Milonga of STM, where we’ll embrace and dance with people from different cultures and parts of the world! By the way, there will be at least 3 people of Peranakan descent at Singapore Tango Marathon. See if you can figure out who they are. And, better yet, dance with them!

For this dinner, registration in advance is required. Please register by 12 April. Then pay in cash at the door please. To register, please go to: https://goo.gl/forms/t2U7d4DbwxgGmvPi2

About House of Peranakan

Reminisce a culinary heritage at House of Peranakan Group of restaurants where we have been proud bearers of the Peranakan culinary tradition for over three decades. Established in Katong in the 1980s, the House of Peranakan Group of restaurants is a pioneer in Nonya cuisine, managed by a pure Peranakan family for three generations.

Inspired by his mother’s culinary skills, Bob Seah wanted to share his family’s culinary culture with others. He established Peranakan Inn in the 1980s, one of the earliest Nonya restaurants in Singapore housed in a charming pre-war Peranakan shophouse built in 1937, which is still serving piping hot Nonya cuisine in claypots today.

A pioneer in the Peranakan food community, Bob created many Peranakan-inspired dishes such as Selar Sambal Fish stuffed with Rempah, Nonya Crayfish, Assam Prawns and Long Beans Sambal. He also introduced the concept of serving home-cooked Nonya food in claypots 30 years ago. Bob went on to establish several award-winning House of Peranakan Cuisine restaurants at the former Negara Hotel, Singapore Tennis Centre and One George Street, and received accolades from Asian Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.

Today, Bob still goes to the market daily and helms the kitchen.

About Kampong Glam

Derived from two Malay words, Kampong, which means village, and Glam, a type of tree that used to be abundant here, Kampong Glam was the area allocated to Sultan Hussein Shah in 1823. The neighbourhood was also home to the Malay and Arab communities, who made a living selling foodstuff and merchandises.

After Kampong Glam was declared a conservation area in 1989, its rejuvenated allure has attracted locals and tourists alike, who converge here to enjoy its eclectic mix of traditional and modern shops and eateries.
