Many of us are familiar with the curries and kueh that emerge out of our grandmothers’ kitchens, and Nonya grandmas take culinary delights to another level. Or perhaps you’ve heard of Violet Oon and Tingkat PeraMakan? Peranakan cuisine certainly is a beautiful amalgamation of cultures and cooking techniques. However, you don’t need hours of painstaking preparation and matriarch-worthy kitchen skills. You can enjoy a good Peranakan meal with ease, thanks to nyonya and Peranakan food delivery options!

The versatility of Peranakan cuisine has proven that it goes beyond the traditional homecooked Tok Panjang feast—the following F&B establishments are a testament to that.

As such, here are 10 Peranakan Food Delivery Options in Singapore that showcase the best of nonya cooking.

1. Straits Chinese: Singapore’s longest-standing Peranakan restaurant now delivers islandwide

Established in 1953, Straits Chinese prides itself as Singapore’s oldest nonya restaurant chain. The restaurant’s rich heritage makes its presence known through their tried-and-tested family recipes. The Michelin Guide Family Sets (from $88) feature classic dishes like Babi Pong Tay, Ngoh Hiang and Chap Chye.  Alternatively, go for the invigorating Ikan Assam Pedas ($36) or Curry Fish Head ($33). It can’t get more authentic than this.

2. Restaurant Kin (closed)

Helmed by Chef Damien D’Silva, Restaurant Kin at Straits Clan strives to take a retrospective look into the origins of Singapore’s culinary history through the preservation and exploration of heritage cuisine.

Their aptly named Heritage Meals feature modern interpretations of dishes like Ikan Chuan Chuan ($28) and Buah Keluak Fried Rice ($28), all of which are accompanied by Kin’s Sambal Sampler and Jasmine Rice. 

End your meal on a sweet note with the Kin Dessert Platter ($24). The assortment of nyonya kueh like Kueh Kosui, Kueh Bengkah and Sugee Cake is bound to bring forth exclamations of delight.

3. Baba Chews: Mod-Sin Peranakan food delivery, islandwide

Specialising in Peranakan fusion cuisine is Baba Chews, a Mod-Sin bar-eatery. Located in the heart of Katong, it now delivers islandwide in Singapore.

Take your pick from a plethora of menu items that’ll please young and old alike. You won’t go wrong with the ‘Chilli Crab’ Tagliatelle ($21.40) and my personal favourite, the Chicken Rendang Lasagne ($19.25).

Whet your appetite with Kueh Pie Tee ($14), the OG of Peranakan finger food. The thin pastry cups are packed separately from the shredded turnip filling and sliced prawns, so the tart shells remain crisp. Garnish with chilli and fragrant coriander—DIY-ing the construction of your own kueh pie tee is always the fun part!

Move on to a selection of thoughtfully-packed mains like the Beef Rendang ($26.50), Chicken Buah Keluak ($28.50), and Kuhlbarra Barramundi ($32). The latter can be cooked to your liking in either Assam Curry or Indigo Blue Kitchen’s house style. 

Why not plan a Peranakan-themed picnic? You can bet that it’ll be portable and presentable.
