Directions to True Blue Cuisine
Located near the Central Fire Station and just a few steps away from the Peranakan Museum, True Blue Cuisine is the perfect choice to heighten your exposure to the Peranakan culture. Its splendid wood, hand-carved door is highlighted by the traditional Ji Oh (family plaque) and an imposing pair of red ting kong teng, (traditional Chinese lanterns, which bear the family name).
Walk into the centennial shop house and enter the intimate and true atmosphere of a Peranakan home, full of authentic Nonya artifacts: Proud silhouette in Kebaya and sarong, beaded slippers collection, heavy hand carved cabinets, Nonyaware with coloured enamel decoration, deity and ancestors altars, the whole fondly preserved by Chef-owner Benjamin Seck and his family.
The term 'True blue', is commonly used in the region to describe someone from Peranakan heritage on both sides. Peranakan Chinese or Baba-Nonya are the descendants of the 15th and 16th century Chinese traders who settled down in the southeast region and married local Malay or Indonesian wives. As a result, the Peranakan cuisine also known as Nonyan cuisine is mainly Chinese gastronomy that has been influenced by Malay, Indian, Thai and Indonesian cultures.
Seated in the main hall, which is designed with a splendid chim chae (airwell), you'll enjoy a fabulous array of Peranakan delights served all together: the refreshing Lemo Bali (Pomelo Salad) and Jantong pisang (Banana blossom with cucumber) and the popular beef rendang and the Udang goring daon curry. Yet for many, the star of the Peranakan cuisine is the traditional Ayam buah Keluak (chicken stewed with black nuts
As most dishes require long and slow cooking time, you might not able to choose how spicy you would like to have your dish prepared. However, drinking some longan and red date tea will be a sweet and calming remedy.
True Blue Cuisine is truly a gem with its charming Peranakan design and authentic local delight! You'll even be able to order your own Kebaya/ sarong clothing from the Chef Benjamin Seck.
