Tag Archives: Peranakan



Not my first time patronising from this stall and I discovered them about 2 to 3 years back when I was exploring Timber+ for good food. Of course the words Curry Rice on the signage caught my eyes and got Peranakan some more, made me wanna try it more!

荣妈 (Rong Ma) is named after his Mother-In-Law who guided him in his cooking but the main influence comes from his Peranakan background, which has a good mix of Malay and Teochew baba styles, which is shown in his dishes today!

What I like about this outlet is that Chef Owner Mexes passionately preps and cooks all the 20+ dishes himself from as early as 6am, with the help of his dearest wife of course. So that they are ready to start selling from 10am and their food usually finishes by 2 to 3pm. So be sure to be early to catch some real good Peranakan Kali Peng (Curry Rice) ya!

East Coast Lagoon (东海岸) – Shanghai, China


From the name you know it’s somewhat related to Singapore cuisine. This place took over the previous Lau Pa Sak restaurant and started not too long ago. I was there to have some Singapore food but realized they changed hands. Nevertheless, it’s still Singapore food! But isn’t 东海岸 known as East Coast Park? Hmmm…

Elongated space.

Coffee Davidoff RMB22 – Very strong black coffee which I like. 🙂

Curry Puff RMB8 – Not nice. Pastry too thick and unlike Old Chang Kee’s pastry texture. However, the curry inside is really good! Hence wasted, it could be a lot better if the pastry was better.

Braised Duck Rice RMB35 – Duck meat was pretty ok and gave quite a lot. Yam rice was really good. Soup is clear and boiled with anchovies.

BBQ Sambal Mackerel RMB28 – I wanted to eat some fish as fish has a lot of bones in Shanghai and Jiangsu Province. Thought the fish would be small but no! It’s quite big and I had difficulty finishing it! Nicely charred on the skin and loads of sambal applied inside. See pic below.

Loads of sambal inside. Nice and spicy!

Just to show you how big the fish was.

On the flip side, also a lot of sambal rubbed inside the slit. Awesome!

Bill of RMB93. Very affordable. Will be back.

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: Pretty close to home and love the fish!

Portion: Above average.

Service: Not enthusiastic. Must remind them to top up water even though I placed the empty cup beside the aisle.

Ambience: Comfy and you won’t come out smelling like what  you ate.

Price: RMB93 in total. Around S$19.50.

RTE: I’ll probably would if I’m in Shanghai again! Haven’t try all their extensive menu offerings!
