In case the sight of our national flag being hoisted around housing estates has not gotten you all nostalgic, perhaps this might. Pacific Marketplace’s new Peranakan Afternoon Tea is served in an impressive four-tiered tiffin carrier similar to the lunchboxes of old Singapore. Dig in to the chicken curry served with a warm French baguette or take a mouthful of the crunchy kuay pie tee with sweet turnip and prawn. Polish off your meal with sweets like onde onde – pandan-infused rice cakes covered in coconut shavings that burst with palm sugar when bitten into.
Pacific Marketplace, Level 1 Pan Pacific Singapore. Available till August 9.
