Straits Chinese Restaurant is the oldest Nonya Restaurant in Singapore. It is by no means easy to look for an authentic Nonya cuisine and I must agree that their Nonya food is pretty authentic and tasty.
This restaurant is extremely popular with tourists and you will get to see bus loads of tourists being sent here for lunches and dinners.
They offer a good selection of appetizers, mains and desserts to cater to individuals’ palate.
Appetizer to go….
Keropok (Prawn Cracker) – Great start for the meal. Goes extremely well by dipping it with the sambal belacan.
Sambal Belacan – Star of the meal. Trust me, it is going to blow you off. It can go well with the white rice on its own too.
Hee Peow Soup – Fish maw with meat ball and fish cake.
Kuak Pedas – Hot & Sour Seafood Soup comes with prawn, squid and straw mushroom.
Ayam Buah Keluak – A type of nut cooked with chicken and braised in thick tamarind gravy.
Sambal Sotong – Sweet based tomato-rish sambal, really power and taste different from the usual sambal sotong that we are used to having.
Babi Pong Teh – Nonya style slow braised pork. The pork is tenderliciously good.
Otak Otak – Generous chunks of fish with each mouthful.
Nonya Chap Chye – Mixed vegetables, (primarily cabbage) stir fried with black fungus and tossed with glass noodles.
Chendol – Sinfully good and highly recommended. 👍
So, if you are craving for a good nonya food, do give this restaurant a try!
