Elegant Blue Ginger is one of the few places in Singapore showcasing the spicy, sour flavours of Peranakan food; a unique fusion of Chinese and Malay influences. Mouth-watering musts include kueh pie tee (shredded bamboo shoots and turnips garnished with shrimp in fried pie ti cups), sambal terong goreng (spicy fried eggplant) and a sublimely delicate Nonya fish-head curry.
