Permata, Sultan Gate: Indigenous Malay cuisine with a modern twist

"More than just a restaurant, Permata is a personal diary of Chef Mel Dean’s childhood. He has not only managed to elevate popular comfort that we know and love, but has restored life to long-lost dishes. I doubt you’ll be able to eat everything in one visit, hence, multiple visits are to be expected to this historical mansion.

If you’re lucky to bump into Chef Mel Dean, don’t miss the chance to get him to tell you the tales that are tied to this gem— this is one history lesson you would certainly enjoy!"
