Peranakan or nyonya food takeaway is one of the better choices when we think of suitable types of takeaway food that taste almost as good at home as dining at the restaurant. Usually dry or prepared with sauce or gravy, nonya food survives the journey home quite well. Here are five Peranakan food takeaway places in Singapore that we like.
British Hainan is a quaint cosy restaurant in Joo Chiat. Located at the junction of Crane Road and Carpmael Road, British Hainan sells vintage collectibles and serves the rather unique blend of British and Peranakan dishes as prepared by Hainanese chefs.
Curry Wok describes itself as “ … a family eatery well known for its home-cooked traditional Teochew Nyonya food …”. Since we have a soft spot for anything food that is Teochew or Nyonya it was only a matter of time that we tried some Curry Wok takeaway from the little restaurant near Coronation Plaza in Bukit Timah.
We like the IVINS Peranakan Food takeaway service from their Binjai Park outlet in Bukit Timah. It is rather low tech but simple and effective. There is no online booking page or prepayment by credit card or Paypal. Just Whatsapp to 85101056 and list out which items you want and food pickup time. The IVINS staff will reply with a confirmation. You can also request for a menu via Whatsapp.
Rumah Bebe in Katong is a Peranakan heritage boutique, a school, a bake shop and also a mini museum. For us, it is simply the best place in the East for takeaway nyonya food.
