Baba Chews is housed within the former Joo Chiat Police Station. It is set to attract customers of all age because their food is authentic and good.
A restaurant where Nonyas gather and dine
Katong’s a pretty upmarket neighbourhood decked with several great restaurants in the area. If you’re into drinks, there are plenty picks of wine bars and pubs in the area, those who are willing to spend a little more.
The restaurant’s review is done during our invited stay with Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong. With a dining setting decking out with monochrome patterned tiles and old style wood flooring, Baba Chews sets itself right as a Peranakan restaurant that’s not just about serving very authentic ‘baba food‘. It also sets in with an interesting bar – serving an array of cocktails to quality wine.
How about the ‘baba food’? How good are they? We had mouth-watering Ayam Buah Kelauk and Rendang. Beef Short Ribs Rendang ($25) a tad sweet but I thought the meats are very tender. The flavours from Ayam Buah Kelauk ($18) were bold.
Chap Chye ($12) is stewed with fermented beans, retaining a good crunch. The meal was so wholesome with a homely feel.
Be sure to dine at Baba Chews with fantastic Peranakan restaurant food and drinks – do complete your dining night out with a stroll along Katong Road as an add-on.
