The Peranakan is tucked away inside Orchard's Claymore Connect, and is both a restaurant and a museum. You can expect to learn a lot about Peranakan cuisine from the staff here, or even feel like a Nonya Tai Tai with their Weekend High Tea Set ($28) - a combination of traditional sweet and savoury bites. A highlight is no doubt their famous Tok Panjang, a smorgasboard of classic Peranakan dishes like Itek Tim, Sambal Petai Prawn, and Ngoh Hiang served on a massive bamboo tray.
