inspired by tradition



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


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).
