Feast your taste buds on a fresh round of fabulous food finds
Peranakan and More
Looking for somewhere to take your visitors that offers local and Asian food but still has familiar Western options for those who are faint of culinary heart? Here’s a varied buffet selection that includes fresh seafood, a carvery, plenty of Southeast Asian dishes and Indian, Japanese and Chinese stations. Best of all, you can sample authentic Peranakan (Straits-Chinese) dishes such as ayam buah keluak and poh pia. The desserts are amazing – we tried the light, whipped durian pudding and licked the bowl clean. Adults pay $45, children $22.50.

In the name of research, we recently tried some Hobie muffins that were delivered to our doorstep. Initial reports were overwhelmingly positive, largely due, we suspect, to the use of real butter, real chocolate and other yummy ingredients. Available at the bigger Cold Storage and Market Place supermarkets.
We love the retro charm of these Solo Coloured cake stands, which come in two sizes, from $122, available at the Zwiesel 1872 boutique.
