The Peranakan restaurant everybody's talking about. :)

I did a poll on which dish everyone like best...

Ikan Masak Kuah Nanas (6/10)

That's my husband's favourite. I don't really like it though.

Bakwan Kepiting (10/10)

That's my favourite. It's the BEST Bakwan Kepiting that I have ever tasted. The meat was tender and the soup was light, yet flavourful. All my family members each took a bite of the Bakwan. They find it nice, but were not as excited about this dish as me. :P

Satay Babi Goreng (6/10)

That's my brother's favourite (it has to be - because he ordered it! ha!)

It doesn't work for me as there were too many fatty parts.

Chap Chye (6/10)

So far, I have not had a Peranakan chap chye that impresses me. Not even at Peramakan. Even the chap chye at kopitams/food courts can score better. :P

Nobody chose this as their favourite.

Ayam Buah Keluak (9/10)
That's my mom's favourite (and also mine too - can have 2 favouriteS? :P)

Dessert time!

Buboh Pulot Hitam (3/10)
My brother was like so proud of his order, and that prompted me to try.
I didn't like it AT ALL, but I guess it's boils down to my preference, rather than the standard of the dessert.

Buboh Terigu (3/10)
Didn't like my mom's order too. >.<

Apom Balik
Mine is still the best choice!

Just when all of us were boasting away on what a wise decision we have made on our own dessert, my hub stayed quiet as he feeds himself with his durian pengat in a robotic manner.

Bro: "Mine is the best"
Me: "No, mine is the best. Yours sucks"
Mom: "No, Mine is the BEST!"

*Brief Pause*

Hub: Mine sucks.

lol! We had a good laugh back then.

Durian Pengat (7/10)
I wouldn't say it's that bad, but after a few spoonsful, you can get rather sick of it.
