Ivins Peranakan Restaurant has long been in one of my places to visit and I finally understand why the place has been highly recommended by many. It is hard to beat places that serve hearty portions at an affordable price nowadays. We had a few of their signatures such as the Beef Rendang, which is served piping hot in a claypot and the meat is tender to the bite. The Ikan Masak Assam is tangy and spicy but the real standout star is the Sotong Hitam of stir-fried squid in a sweet black sauce.
