This restaurant can only make appointment by calling chef Jeff.  He will tell you where to go.  He usually will cook for group of people.

We got 9 adults & 6 children.

We have chosen the “Eat Until Pain” menu.  They have “Eat Until Peng San” and “Eat Until Blessed” menu too.

I will explain why “Eat Until Pain” later.

Let’s take a look how the chef prepare it for us.

I asked chef Jeff, beside eating your own Peranakan food, which other Peranakan restaurant you think it is good.  He simply say “none.”  hahahaha

He then explained, “most of the restaurant will cook for the whole day, for many many customers.”  So, they cook in quantity and makes the quality drop.  Where as, he will cook for you alone, so, the tastes and quality is controlled.

Well done!  Chef Jeff!  Your Peranakan food is really Tok Gong!

Of course, we ended our lunch with birthday cakes.

Happy Belated birthday Mel and Jas.
