Get an overdose of Peranakan food (tiny selection on Sun). What people come for are the amazing batiks and bewildering variety of baju kebaya worn by the Nyonya.

From beautifully hand painted Tiffin carriers, to porcelain bowls, antique silver waist belts, and hand stitched beaded slippers. You'll find it all here. Also,...More

With all the bad reports I was in the area and had a look, young sales lady was nice, guess I missed the owner !! Nice array of local products and food looked clean and appealing, all in all the shop was an experience.

Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group
descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay
families in the 15th century. The neighbourhood is
packed with colourful shops, local characters, and
quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners
enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy
noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are
