Although this is my first photo sharing from this stall, I actually have been patronising this stall for many years; since I started working in Chinatown.

I love their curry with chili paste a lot which really enhance the overall taste. That’s why I have been returning for back whenever I have the craving for it.

Sadly the announcement came, even as I hope it wasn’t the true. But the owner has decided to call it a day to retire, after serving their signature peranakan caifan for so many years here.

Closing by end of this year, I guess they worked very hard to maintain the standard of the taste. They also aged a lot since my first visit here, definitely deserve some good rest.

So you only have a few weeks left to enjoy this. Always a long queue here, with the items snapped out pretty fast. I definitely recommend you to grab their fried chicken, curry chicken, hae zou and egg.

This post would mark as a memory for me of this stall when they close permanently soon after.

From 15 December to 31 December, Rempapa will be showcasing Chef Damian’s renditions of classic British dishes featuring Singapore heritage flavours that will be available for dine-in and takeaway. There will also be whole kuehs and cakes that are made available exclusively for takeaway orders, which are perfect gifts for your loved ones.

For takeaways, indulge in four festive dishes starting with the Roast GG French Poulet with Rempapa Spices ($90, 1.3kg) that is first brined in a house-blend of spices for 24 hours then stuffed with herbs and aromatics such as pandan leaves, fresh bay leaves and lemongrass before the chicken goes into the roaster. To complement the chicken, there is the Spiced Meatloaf with Sambal Mashed Potatoes ($90, 1.2kg) made with pork and cooked with nutmeg and curry powder. The mash is made from Australian potatoes mixed in with a sambal before it is piped over the meat and baked to finish.

Both mains are best accompanied with the moreish Bubble & Squeak, Rempapa’s version with roasted pork, brussels sprouts and Bombay onions, all cooked in a sauce of black bean, matured black vinegar, light soy sauce, pepper and shallot oil that result in a myriad of flavours and smells that is simply irresistible. To end the meal, there is the Spotted Dick with Gula Melaka Custard ($35, 500g), a traditional steamed pudding that contains beef tallow, brandy-soaked currants, orange and lemon zest, served with crème anglaise sweetened with gula melaka.

These four festive dishes are also available as a Festive Platter ($120) for dine-in guests, which will portioned for four pax. Orders must be placed 3 days in advance.

would come here for the drinks > food tbh!! the laksa mac and cheese (~sgd15++) although tasty and good came in a rly small portion with sadly 3-4 pieces of prawn so was q ex :-( the avocado toast (~sgd16++) used sourdough bread so that was nice. food was decent but the drinks were just 🥰😍💯🫶 got the matcha latte and it was super gao!! asked for less sweet but i think still a tad bit sweet so will get without sugar next time. anw this is a perfect place to study bc there’s no one even on the weekends and the music acoustic vibes just ❤️❤️❤️

OVERALL: 4.5/5

Rempapa is one of my favourite restaurants thst serve a huge range of heritage dishes.

The sambal buah keluak is one of my favourites when paired with the turmeric rice. Alternatively, you could opt for their buah keluak fried rice which has a nice smokiness to it.

For the mains, i highly recommend the baca asaam (beef cheek) which is both tasty and tender. The mee anu (which is a new dish) was surprisingly flavourful.

Make sure to never leave the place without trying their desserts! I highly recommend the kueh bengkah, kueh salat, and kueh kosui.

Lastly, I would love to extend my appreciation to chef Damien for the food, and the service staff (Jeremy, Fadhullah, and Jane) for the amazing night!

The restaurant is Chinese/Peranakan. We had Sweet & Sour pork, Otah, Cabbage Roll and Ayam Buah Keluak. They were all so amazing. Not in this pic was a prawn, sotong, and meat paste wrapped in cabbage leave and served sliced in rolls and it tasted like lontong! So delicious! Another one was chicken cooked with special black seeds and inside the black seeds was soft and something I've never had before. Very unique. 😋😋😋

We also had their latte ($5.50++) ☕️ - a slightly acidic but fragrant cuppa using coffee beans from Common Man Coffee! 😋

Our Style Chendol ($11++) was indeed unique! 😉 Not the usual pandan jelly 🌿, their rendition features long strands! It's our first time eating chendol using chopsticks 🥢! Also comprising red bean mousse ❤, gula melaka, popcorn 🍿, drizzle on the coconut cream 🥥🤍 to serve!

End your meal on a sweet note! 💗 Fans of the King Fruit can opt for their Kueh Durian ($16++), which features pandan crêpe 💚 encasing durian mousse, burnt custard & gula melaka, served with a scoop of ice cream 🍦.

My mum's favourite was the Kopi C' Spare Ribs (Quart) ($26++) 👑! Fork-tender well-marinated spare ribs 🐖 glazed with housemade Kopi C sauce ☕️, served with creamy rojak slaw & crispy you tiao crisps ✨️, what's not to love! Overwhelmed by the rich aroma of the coffee sauce 🤤, I was rather oblivious to its bitter note.

Creatively presented like our 🇸🇬 satay is Ikan Laksa Satay ($27++), featuring grilled salmon 🐟 & vegetables like peppers & onions, doused in laksa sauce 🌶 full of lemak & nutty flavours 🥜. Sedap!
