Kim Choo Kueh Chang (Peranakan)

We dropped by the Pernakan (or Straits born Chinese) restaurant one night and was surprised at how quiet it was in spite of its excellent menu. The fish head curry was exceedingly fresh, and though we ordered just a half portion, was rather generous. The rendang (dry beef curry) was a bit tough, but I know of people who like it that way. The sambal kangkong (spicy stir-fry vegetable) was just spicy enough while the petai (an Asian bean) was equally fragrant and spicy.

For those who are keen to find out more about the Pernakan culture, they also have a museum on the upper floor.
