New Nusantara restaurant, Permata Singapore, offers the first Nusantara buffet in Singapore

Updated: May 11, 2021

Permata Singapore is the first Nusantara restaurant to offer a Nusantara buffet in Singapore at the former Malay Mansion in Kampong Glam.

Permata, which means “jewel” in Malay, is inspired by the trade in the 1920s, where diamonds and gemstones were sold in Kampong Glam. Opening its doors on 23 April 2021, the Permata Singapore will be housed in a gorgeous heritage building - Gedung Kuning.

Translating to “yellow mansion”, Gedung Kuning is the former Malay Mansion of the youngest son of the Sultan of Johor. Boasting over 10,000 square feet, Gedung Kuning was built in the late 1850s and its exterior was inspired by Palladian architecture which is a European architectural style that was trendy back in the day. The interior of Gedung Kuning, like the former Istana Kampong Glam next to it, follows the design of a traditional Malay house.

Nostalgic Yet Elevated Nusantara Cuisine in Singapore

Offering over 60 Nusantara-inspired dishes for both lunch and dinner, Executive Chef Firdauz Nasir is on a mission to elevate Nusantara cuisine in Singapore while ensuring that key nostalgic dishes such as Ulam, Kerabu, Lemang remain on the menu.

Pushing the boundaries in his cooking, Executive Chef Firdauz has added modern twists to the menu with dishes like Wagyu Beef Rendang, Ayam Binjai, Tempoyak Ikan Patin that pairs perfectly well with Nasi Bunga Telang, Permata’s Signature Blue Pea Rice.
