We provide customers with a truly authentic experience with delicious, home-cooked Peranakan food — minus the frills.
In the past, it was the norm for mothers to use “tingkats” or layered containers to bring delicious home-cooked meals to a loved one who is at work or at school. The concept of “tingkats” was adopted by PeraMakan to make our food more accessible to our customers in shopping malls and in housing estates who not only want a quick meal dine-in or takeaway.
I’m Kathryn Ho, the Executive Chef and founder of PeraMakan. I’m a fourth generation Nyonya of Malacca and Penang parentage. I started PeraMakan in 2004. Peranakan food originates from the home and I have kept it home cooked since.
At PeraMakan, I still want to preserve this value, that every dish is symbolic of a culture spanning 400 years. I hope with the passing of time, customers can still come back to PeraMakan and say, “this is how my grandmother used to cook it”. When I hear this, I know that I have succeeded in training another generation, I have succeeded in preserving a rich heritage.
