Malaysian restaurant chain Papparich appears to have found a good formula to present good local food in a nice setting. It is certainly cheaper to eat local delights like laksa and char kway teow at the food court or hawker centre. Outlets such as Papparich Suntec provide the option to enjoy these in a nice restaurant enviroment, albeit at a higher price. Over the years we have tried quite a few dishes but these are our three top dishes at Papparich that we often end up ordering.
PappaRich Suntec City
We were at the PappaRich Suntec City outlet recently. Looking at the menu, it was hard to make a decision as there were so many options. We challenged ourselves to think of the top three dishes and these are the three that we came up with. We ordered these three items that day.
With 8 outlets in Singapore, PappaRich restaurants have become a familiar sight in Singapore. Like most of the other Papparich outlets, Papparich Suntec CIty has plush seating and an European style decor. Outside Singapore, there are more than 60 PappaRich outlets in Malaysia and several in other parts of the world)
As far as I know, there is a common PappaRich menu across all their restaurants in Singapore and so our 3 favourite dishes at Papparich Suntec can also be found at their other outlets in Singapore. There is a wide selection of dishes in the menu. Here are pictures of some sample pages of the PappaRich menu.
#1 Top Dish at PappaRich – Satay
The chicken satay is our favorite dish at Papparich. They cost $8.90 for 6 sticks. More pricey than eating at a hawker centre but these are more substantial and come nicely presented. The chicken is tender. It has been well-seasoned and could be eaten even without the sauce. Some have commented that the chicken satay at PappaRich is similar to that served in business on SIA flights. Another said that it reminded him of Satay Anika which used to be very popular in Singapore many years ago (I think they had at a shop in Centrepoint in the 80s).
#2 – Wat Tan Hor Kway Teow
Our #2 dish at Papparich is a seafood hor fun dish that is called Wat Tan Hor Kway Teow. I guess that “wat tan” means smooth egg literally. That, I believe, refers to the eggy seafood gravy which this hor fun or kway teow dish is served in. The combination of the wok hei of the kway teow and the pleasant gravy is what makes this dish a compelling one. With a generous topping of seafood and some vegetables. It is comfort food that we look forward to often.
#3 – Penang Prawn Mee
The Penang Prawn Mee rounds up our list of TOP dishes at Papparich. The prawn broth is the main attraction of this dish. It can rival some of the best prawn mee stalls in Singapore (read our top list prawn noodles in Singapore here). It may perhaps be the best prawn mee in a restaurant setting.
