Peranakan cuisine inspires fierce devotion. But head chef Malcolm Lee is not looking to compete with Peranakan grandmothers when it comes to making classic dishes such as babi pongteh (soy-braised pork) or bakwan kepiting (ground pork and crab meat ball soup). Instead, Candlenut elevates these homely dishes into refined plates such as coconut crab curry and smoky charcoal-grilled lamb neck satay. The staff exude Peranakan charm, interspersing dinner with jokes and disarming smiles that are the real reason why you’ll find yourself coming back.
