inspired by tradition

HANDCRAFTED X ARTISANAL

 

Located in the Jalan Besar area, Peranakan Khek is a purveyor of traditional, handmade Peranakan kueh helmed by chef-owner Sharon Low.

When was the last time you had handmade Nyonya kueh produced using the best ingredients? Meaning freshly-squeezed coconut milk (santan), with its incomparable lightness and sweetness, and pure palm sugar (gula melaka), deep and complex in flavour.

A lucky few still enjoy kueh made by grandparents or relatives, but making kueh this way has fallen out of favour because of the laborious process. Peranakan Khek is determined to revive the taste of handmade Nyonya kueh. In order to do this successfully, we have a tight but well-curated menu to showcase the way kueh should be: simple and well-balanced, while highlighting the humble ingredients of the region.

more about the chef and the origins of the name

While honing her skills in pastry kitchens and moonlighting as a traditional snack enthusiast, Sharon discovered that the secret to Peranakan kueh is simple: balance. Balance between rich and light, softness and bite. This balance can only be achieved by good technique and quality ingredients. Having a chef at the helm of the company means that priority will always be given to the product. With a back-to-basics approach, recipes are deliberately kept traditional and ingredients are allowed to shine.

Nyonya kueh is quickly losing ground to big companies, hence Peranakan Khek is found, a small business with a big mission: to breathe life back into traditional sweets done right. ‘Khek’ (pronounced ‘cake’), the Hokkien term for Hakka, Sharon’s dialect group, also fittingly means ‘guest’. Peranakan Khek is thus born in the spirit of sharing, heritage, family and community.

Traditional Southeast Asian sweets are usually inspired by the same humble ingredients: coconut, palm sugar, pandan leaf, tapioca, banana, glutinous rice, etc. What differentiates one kueh from another is attention to detail. At Peranakan Khek, we are committed to every detail. From ingredients and technique, to service and experience. Our customer is after all, our guest (客).
