Stopped off here after food with friends. Atmosphere was great and staff looked after us well. I would recommend this place if visiting Singapore.

Heard of this restaurant from my mother friend and yes! indeed found it and had a happy tummy in here. The meals was really good, though the space is small but we all like it. The terong and even the sambal makes you wanted for more! They also serves a good curry!

There were only 2 of us so we couldn't order very much. Which is a great shame. But we enjoyed the set-our-mouths-on-fire Devil's curry, buah keluak and brinjal with tomatoes and salted fish. The Devil's curry was really good but too spicy to finish. So we had the gravy packed and brought home so we could add our own ingredients... More

The food here is a fusion of Peranakan and Eurasian cultures and is excellent! Enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. To top it up, the host and chef, Lionel, was very hospitable and came out of the kitchen to chat with his customers. He has a passion to keep the peranakan culture alive too.

Not only was the food great, but you will be giving an education to your palette! Treat yourselves to the delicious flavours. A delightful experience for myself a local and for wife from Australia. Owner was very accommodating to change some foods to non spicy versions for my wife and made the whole lunch an experience and education rather than... More

My local friend and his family hosted me to this restaurant in Katong last Friday evening. What a surprise...I had never heard of Peranakan food or Eurasian fusion dishes. We had a small sized dishes, shared by six people....this enabled us to sample about ten dishes all told. I may not describe the dishes accurately however every dish was fantastic.... More

This is a not-to-be-missed Singapore dining experience. A SG$10 taxi from the central area will get you out to Katong and set you up for a real treat. The food is traditional Peranakan harking back to the original Eurasian influences in the Malay peninsula, hence the Portuguese name. The service was inspiring encouraging those unfamiliar with this style of cooking... More

One of my favourite places in Katong. Have been here countless times and the owners aim to please. A place to go for authentic Nyonya / Eurasian cuisine.

Singapore has a number of Peranakan (Straits Malay) restaurants, and every one I've eaten at has been good, but this one is both good and a little bit different. Most of them serve Singapore Peranakan food, but the owners of Casa Bom Vento hail originally from Malacca, and the food there is somewhat different, due to the Portuguese influence. I've... More

I nearly always stay along Marine Parade when visiting Singapore, as it's relaxed, a little less commercial and retains a modicum of the 'old Singapore'. Whilst walking along East Coast, I peeked along Joo Chiat Road from the corner and walked passed this little culinary gem - and then in we went, for a wonderfully fresh and flavourful meal. The...

Neighbourhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighbourhood is packed with colourful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
