Baba Wins’ Peranakan Cuisine @ Star Vista

I always knew that there was a Peranakan restaurant in Star Vista. In fact, I had walked past it a few times. However, I was usually alone or with people who were not in the mood for Peranakan, hence I had never tried it. This time around, sis and I specially went there just to try Baba Win’s Peranakan Cuisine to see how it fared.

Do not expect much in terms of scale of the restaurant. It is a small and cozy place, seating less than 20. And in spite of the recommendations on the wall, sis and I ordered what we felt like eating.

Nyonya Chap Chye ($10). For my sis, no Peranakan meal is complete without this dish. This is a popular Nyonya dish of mixed vegetables stewed in a Penang-Peranakan recipe of tauju gravy. It was a harmonious combination of vegetables bringing out the flavour of fermented bean paste.

Assam Fish with Lady’s Fingers ($16). Pieces of fish fillet with lady’s fingers and tomatoes cooked in a tangy assam gravy. I love assam, so as soon as I saw this on the menu I knew I had to order it.

Nyonya Chicken Curry ($12.50). For us, this dish was actually pretty normal and tasted like everyday curry, so I would give this a miss next time.
