Candlenut does a refined take on Peranakan cuisine, with classic dishes prepared with a mix of modern Western methods and authentic flavours. Embrace the communal dining experience in true Peranakan style by ordering an array of seafood and meats to share. Must-tries include the pong tauhu shellfish bisque, which features a flavourful, clear broth steeped in the sweet richness of prawns, as well as the buah keluak fried rice—the black nut brings out a smoky, robust flavour that coats each rice grain with the inky nut paste. The sizeable wine menu features bottles from major wine regions in France, Italy, Spain, Australia and the Napa Valley. The restaurant’s interior celebrates its Asian roots; designed by Paola Navone, it pairs Peranakan-style tiles and motifs with sleek green marble tables and rattan lamps that light the restaurant in a cosy glow.
