Black-and-white tile flooring, polished marble countertops, and ornate Peranakan tiles from an old shophouse highlight the Parisian bistro aesthetic of this buzzing restaurant in the Bukit Timah neigborhood. It's a true family effort here: the well-known Singaporean food personality Violet Oon handles the kitchen, her fashion-designer daughter was charged with the restaurant's design, and her son manages day-to-day operations. Oon's robust Peranakan cuisine, which has Malay, Indonesian, and Chinese influences, is drawn from recipes she's honed for decades—and that have been served to her business partners since their childhood. Save room for the bread-and-butter pudding topped with a custard-and-whiskey sauce.
